Hmm, no idea why this happens for you. Perhaps Orcan has some idea?

Midi-parts are xml based and can be stored and retrieved from disk. This
gives the possibility to produce a library of parts. Creating a public
library of parts (mainly for drums) has been discussed.

They are regular tracks where you can put/record wave-parts, if you tried
older versions of MusE this is nothing new.

Too much information? It's the standard sourceforge page, though you may be
right, we should probably rework that in the wiki.

I'm not convinced there is a usual way. Though you are right we are
beginners with cmake and it can probably be improved.
ccmake is just a curses frontend is it not? You can try to convince me but
instinctively I think we should steer clear of gui tools for building.

Thank you, we will try to improve the build and get it compiling on all
systems we can :)
