My name is Thanassis Zervopoulos and i am studing at Technical University of Crete. I'm working on a 
project thar requires real-time interaction with a midi and an application, so I've downloaded portmidi 
from  CM Links-> Linux Portmidi installation which is the archive portmidi.tar.gz. I've followed the 
instructions but there was an error message "Can't open "/usr/lib/libporttime.so " " Undefined 
Symbol ....Thread....."
so I put this line ---  (cffi:load-foreign-library "/usr/lib/libpthread.so")  ---  to portmidi.lisp after the 
;;; linux: guess i need to load porttime.so first (?) osx doesnt seem
;;; to need this lib at all...

and works fine.

I'm new on this area with cm,clm,cmn,portmidi so i'd like to ask you if it is better to use portmidi or 
midishare for real-time midi i/o and will i need rts for real-time interaction?

Thank you in advance
