Very strange. I've never heard of anyone using a text version. I would
guess this is caused by the way you ran ./configure possibly? Post
back your configure step?

Also check to make sure you don't have conflicting versions, like one
in /usr/bin and a second in /usr/local/bin. (Again, a ./configure

To run Aqualung with things hooked up the way I want I start it from a
Gnome GUI icon with these properties:

aqualung -o jack --auto=alsa_pcm:playback_17,alsa_pcm:playback_18

Hope this helps,
