Hi all.

Sorry for the cross-posting. As promised, here are my attempts at building rythmaid ( http://rythmaidgui.sourceforge.net/ ) on my machines:

-with Mandrake 9.0 + cooker: rythmaid compile, but before it needed tse3 that needed kdemultimedia that didn't want timidity. So I gave up, un-installed tse3, kdemultimedia, re-installed timidity... but now timidity is silent. hmm, are programms alive? ~8P I will dig later with my timidity.cfg files.

-with redhat 8.0 + planet CCRMA audio packages: tse3 (0.2.5) should be removed and the 0.2.7 version from TSE web site should be installed. Then it's no problem to compile rythmaidgui. 
Before running, one may want to launch a softsynth. Then, rythmaidgui can be launched in its own compile directory where it will find the Chords directory. 
Some things should be noted: for now it's jazz oriented and there are only the drums and the bass. The chords must be existing in the Chords directory ("Cmaj7" works, "C" only doesn't , that's jazz, man). New chords can be defined too.

So it's an interesting program, with a clean gui, reminiscing of Bbox. The author wants to add some changes soon (more instruments, qt gui...). He was very kind answering my questions during my attempts.
