please help with sunvox on ubuntu

Post by stevie232323 » Sun Feb 11, 2018 6:25 pm

Hi everyone. My name is Steve. I live in London UK.
I came over Sunvox when I was looking for Tracker software as I am an old Protracker veteran from the Amiga days. :)
Sunvox is fucking amazing!! It is what I was looking for and more!!
I was just getting a hang of how the modules work (I use PD, MAX MSP and other modular sound software) when I discovered the GPIO module and thought FUCK!!!
I am an experienced microcontroller programmer so of course this made my eyes light up.
I don't have an R-PI but I do have a Riotboard which uses an Imx.6 processor from Freescale and can run either Linux or Android. Its a nice board with loads of connectivity inclusing USB, LVDS, HDMI, camera, ethernet, GPIO, I2C, SPI, Audio in out etc etc....
I have it running Ubuntu Linaro and so downloaded Sunvox to run on it so I can experiment with the GPIO modules and have a portable Sunvox machine!!!
:D 8)
Only thing is I've tried running Sunvox from all the different ARM folders and none of them work.
Is there a definitive way of getting Sunvox to work on Ubuntu on an ARM board???
Thanks for any help.
I await with anticipation.
Steve.S

Hi Nightradio!! :D
Здравствуйте.

Oh blimey you're in Ekaterinberg in Sverdlorsk Oblast. I have read about your city but for all the wrong reasons....
OK, I tried putting the Armel version in the /usr/bin folder. if I try running the Armel version from Terminal in root I get : sunvox: cannot execute binary file
ldd shows: not a dynamic executable.
hmmm....

How about the linux_arm_armhf_raspberry_pi version?
The same output?
Actually there is no need to copy the sunvox to /usr/bin. Just launch it from the unpacked directory directly.

Hi Nightradio. :)
OK,

Tried it.

No. Its even worse. I put the unpacked folder on the Ubuntu Desktop.l If I go into the pi folder and type "sunvox" I get "sunvox, no such file or directory".
same even if I do put it in the /bin directory. :(
I'm not used to ubuntu. what am i doing wrong.
Can I be a baby and you walk me thru the steps..... :crazy:

If I go into the pi folder and type "sunvox" I get "sunvox, no such file or directory".
In this case please enter "./sunvox" - it means "launch sunvox from the current directory".
I also recommend to execute the following command first: "chmod a+x sunvox" (like described in the official manual)

In fact, I don't know anything about Ubuntu for Riotboard. It maybe compatible with Raspberry soft, and maybe not. It depends on some features, including ABI.
For example, the PocketCHIP board is compatible with linux_arm_armhf_raspberry_pi version.
Some old Linux devices may be compatible with linux_arm_armel.

Please also try "ldd ./sunvox" for the Raspberry version

Everything looks good, except for this:
libSDL2-2.0.so.0 => not found
So you need to install libsdl2

Turns out the Ubuntu Distro I've got is broken and missing loads of stuff. Regex has been rejected. All broken. I'm gonna find another distro... :crazy:

If you talking about the missing libsdl2 - this is normal for any distro. You should just install it through the apt-get or some other package manager.
For example, here is the instruction for Raspbian: viewtopic.php?f=16&t=4454

I had the same problem on Linux Mint. After "sudo apt-get install libsdl2-2.0" it works.

Yeah I tried that but I get some bullshit about Regex not being able to install the package so it won't install any libsdl2 stuff. :(
nightmare. Getting f****d off with this. :cry:
The Android distro works fine but i can't afford to buy the .APK at the moment. :(
