ChromebookPixel running Ubuntu
Been through several Linux distros over the years but totally in love with my new hardware - a Google Chromebook Pixel. (thanks santa).
Straight in to dev mode, got my linux sorted (Ubuntu 12.04 LTS) really impressed at the 2560 resolution and the processors are not even breaking a sweat. but...
All the defaults don't seem compatible with getting Ardour instantly working. Just paid some more and downloaded the latest Ardour, installed it and it runs to create a session using JACKS as the audio system and ALSA for the driver (yes all ALSA kernal modules are ok) but Jacks or ALSA seem to be flipping out as there are no devices listed so cant create the session. I am sure i will crack this eventually but was wondering if anyone could give me a head start?
My instincts are that the problem might be something to do with the hardware being made busy by the chromebook operating system as i am running both ChromeOS and Ubuntu concurrently (yea cool :) - works a treat) i have Ubuntu installed as a chroot and everything seems to work sweet except this.
I thought as both operating systems were using the same kernal and modules that they should be able to share the same sound system so i hope this is not the problem. Does anyone have any experience of setting up Ardour on a Chroombook Pixel chroot'ed with Ubuntu 12.04 LTS?
Looking for an easy answer rather than wrecking my head over it.
