Yes... I'm talking about MusE (midi and audio recording).

Keep in mind that I'm upgrading from MusE 0.5.3 to the newest. And when 
I looked at the upgrades at the MusE site, I didn't even see MusE 0.5.3 
down the page. The exact packages that I need to upgrade MusE (that led 
to upgrading from SuSE 8.1 to SuSE 9.0) are:

qt 3.1.0

I know that doesn't seem so bad, but I just have the feeling that if I 
try to upgrade qt3, somehow it will interfere with some config file that 
  SuSE uses and will change with the next install. This isn't the case 
with most programs, but qt3 seems to be different. It's intertwined with 
SuSE config files somehow. And of course there's links pointing to other 
qt dirs. I do upgrades a lot. It just seems that qt3 seems to be more 
intertwined with SuSE config files and I don't want to reinvent the 
wheel to install MusE.

I agree. Besides...
I want to try out the MainActor 5 (video editing) that is offered in 
SuSE 9.0.

Thanks... I'm already on the list though.

Sheesh... maybe MusE 0.5.3 is older than I thought. Version 0.5.3 
definatly doesn't record. I did read whatever was offered with the 
install. I'm pretty sure it even said something about recording not 
being implemted yet. But maybe I missed something.

I'll probly be one of those guys that has MusE 0.6 installed for ten 
years and be saying "I remember when we slapped computers together with 
sticks and mud. We didn't have fancy sound servers like Jack and Arts. 
We were a simple people..." (hehe)

Jack is a great thing and I'm greatful for the times when I'm forced to 
do something that will benifit other things. It looks like Jack is the 

Now let Me go find My Amiga computer so I can record an 8 bit 19000Hz 
file (like the good old days).
