YES, I have read the former articles regarding this kind of problems, but
even I compiled ecasound in my RedHat Linux 7.3 (*) with the
--disable-ncurses option, there remains a problem that while single track
playback and recording work OK, multitrack recording by
ecasound -c -b:256 -r -f:16,2,44100 \
-a:1 -i janet_drums.wav -o /dev/dsp \
-a:2 -i /dev/dsp -o janet_misc.wav
fails to such a hangup that it doesn't open the output channels at all and
does not respond to commands like 't', 's' or 'q' who should, of course
be "normal" ecasound interactive mode commands. From this situation it is
still possible to exit by Ctrl-C, but after trying this, it has couple of
times happened that trying to use ecasound anymore locks my computer so
rock-hard that it does not respond to neither the keyboard nor the mouse
at all! Making, in fact, the file-system-consuming cold boot necessary...
(*) These problems were earlier registered on Slackware Linux as far I
have understood the previous conversations.
