The regular jackd (from cvs) is still having a few buffering
problems with darkice (from cvs) running on OSX-Tiger 10.4.3, even
with my make-it-big patch on darkice.
We're testing Stephane's JackdMP-0.44 pkg now, and things are quite
a lot better. JackdMP can load its own jack_coreaudio.so driver,
whereas jackit-cvs has problems loading its own, but jackit-cvs can
(only) use its jack_portaudio.so driver which is probably where our
buffering problems reside. (All that is under OSX-Tiger.)
Building and running jackit-cvs under OSX-Panther works fine with
its own jack_coreaudio.so driver built there ... somewhere in all
this is a clue to our woes under Tiger. ;)
I've (re)compiled everything using Apple's XCode-2.2 gcc-4.0.1 etc.
and tweaks for a PPC-7450 (newer G4).
Also, I patched Lame cvs with those Altivec patches mentioned on
the lame-devel list. Even tho we have a G4, I put on all of the G5
patches, and gcc did not complain, and we've yet to crash either.
If you'd like to give us a test:
We are listed and use a variety of netcast software. For now, to

For now, we are using maximum 320K MP3 bitrate and can handle only
a few connections. I am hoping we (you-all and me) can use p2p
software to handle more connections. The idea is to eventually
have you become an affiliate that can take the high-quality
signal (the backbone) then have your relay locally transcode it
for your local listeners esp. those on dial-up lines needing lower
bitrates all across the world. (More on this idea is posted on
the Peercast forum at
We relay a local Christian FM station that is way ahead of others,
very contemporary. We only netcast the dance/ trance/ house/ dnb/
breaks stuff on Friday nights and Saturday nights U.S. time (only,
no fear of RIAA this way, see <g>).
I am only an avid listener who can engineer the netcast, not a DJ
or anything like that, but the station does know we are doing this,
but I would like Christian youth (and young-at-heart) to know about
this, too. There is absolutely no preaching nor commercials during
these dance nights, so people can simply enjoy the music and know
they will not hear any other raunchy stuff either.
The station/church website is at <http://www.KOKF.com/>.
Some of the dance mixes are available as original high-quality MP3s
for download at <http://www.LiftedRadio.com/>. (I've got a
personal archive of more...)
A virtual prize if you know what KOKF stands for. <g>
