I am trying to get Rotter to work on Ubuntu 6.10. I compiled the code
and everything but when I try to run it, I get these funky errors:

mlyon at kkup-audio:/usr/local/bin$ sudo rotter -a -f mp3 -d 1000 -b 160 -v /var
[DEBUG]  Mon Mar 12 15:04:47 2007  Root directory: /var
jackstart: cannot get realtime capabilities, current capabilities are:
           =ep cap_setpcap-ep
    probably running under a kernel with capabilities disabled,
    a suitable kernel would have printed something like "=eip"

back from read, ret = 1 errno == Success
jackstart: could not give capabilities: Operation not permitted
jackd 0.101.1

I have lame installed:
mlyon at kkup-audio:/usr/local/bin$ whereis lame
lame: /usr/bin/lame /usr/X11R6/bin/lame /usr/bin/X11/lame
mlyon at kkup-audio:/usr/local/bin$

and I have Jackd installed:
mlyon at kkup-audio:/usr/local/bin$ whereis jackd
jackd: /usr/bin/jackd /usr/X11R6/bin/jackd /usr/bin/X11/jackd
mlyon at kkup-audio:/usr/local/bin$

It appears as if i will have to recompile it, which is fine. But, I
did have LAME installed on the machine prior to the time I compiled

Any help would be appreciated.

Thank You,
