Are there any special steps required to install the Meego version on a Nokia N9?

First, I switched to root, and then I downloaded the .deb file to my phone and tried to install with dpkg -i . I realized that there was a dependency issue (needed libsdl1.2 IIRC). I installed that with apt-get install libsdl1.2 and tried to reinstall sunvox. Now it doesn't start up. If I try to start it from the shell I get the following :

Code: Select all
SunDog Engine / Apr  9 2012
MAIN: device start
MAIN: screen_angle = 0
MAIN: screen_zoom = 1
MAIN: screen_ppi = 110
MAIN: screen_scale = 256 / 256
MAIN: screen_xsize = 800
MAIN: screen_ysize = 600
MAIN: system palette init
MAIN: wmanager initialized
Audio buffer size: 4096 frames
ALSA lib pcm.c:2212:(snd_pcm_open_noupdate) Unknown PCM pulse
ALSA ERROR: Can't open audio device pulse: No such file or directory
ALSA: default
ALSA HW Default rate: 44100
ALSA HW Rate: 44100 frames
ALSA HW Buffer size: 8192 frames
ALSA HW Period size: 221
ALSA HW Periods: 0
ALSA SW Avail min: 221
ALSA SW Start threshold: 1
ALSA SW Stop threshold: 8192
Segmentation fault


What am I doing wrong here?

Meanwhile, I am using the Mac OS X version and it rules. Thank you for this brilliant application.

apsuf,
I've not tested it on N9, so let's see what the problem.
First please check this directory /usr/share/sunvox. The sunvox_config.ini file must be there.
If so - сheck the contents of this file by typing "cat sunvox_config.ini"

Aha!

The /usr/share/sunvox directory had the following permissions :
Code: Select all
drw-rw-rw-    2 root     root          4096 Apr 10 17:29 sunvox


I did a chmod 777 sunvox and now the application starts up normally!

Thanks for the help and again, thanks for the brilliant application.

Another good thing about this release is that it's starting instantly for me (with older versions I had to wait 3-5 seconds - no big deal, but still this improvement is most welcomed)

Hi,

I'm waaaay too tired to say anything reasonable, after spending 5hr with SunVox, and the morning sun is starting to shine from the window, but i'll have to say - AMAZING, INCREDIBLE...

nite,
G.

SunVox works in the normal resolution mode (not retina) on all iOS devices due to technical reasons )

THanks for the new delay...
new standard pattern effects 40...5F - delay an event for selected fraction of the line (from 40 (0%) to 5F (100%));


What does this do? I'm not able to replicate it:

synths_min_num 8

Nopcorp, I think this will be only hearable for lower BPMs.

Hey there!

Are you referring to the new delay feature or the min synth number?

What does the: "synths_min_num 8", do?
