I am running the preempt or known as "edge" kernel however I also
tried the standard stock fedora kernel and still had the same problem

OK now for the strange part. I did this command in the preempt kernel
and now it runs fine. the gui came right up. even after that it comes
right up from the gui ccrma menu in gnome. I did some googling earlier
on this and with a user in an agnula forum experienced the same thing
and it mysteriously fixed itself too. There was another post I found
on a chached page in google from the old rosegarden mail list however
it wouldn't let me see the old replies. from what I can see it looks
like some sort of bug in fluidsynth-dssi being it doesn't seem to
kernel dependent or even distro dependent. I will be sure to post
agian if it reoccurs and let you all know what the output of the
"strace fluidsynth-dssi" brings up.

thank you Anthony for all your help. Fluidsynth-dssi has become a
major tool in my songwriting. I wouldn't know what I would do without
it. Let me know if there is something else though I could try to help
on your end though if that doesn't help.
