[chuck-users] Chuck Linux and rolling your own

I can't give you a REAL answer but some hints. I am in the middle of  
getting my powerbook dual booting gentoo and osx. ChucK seems to work  
fine, but I haven't done any real major tests or applied the realtime  
patches to the kernel yet. I'll post more in a few weeks after my  
packages stop compiling :)

What I do know is that Ge uses 10.3.9 on his powerbook as his main  
development box. He does an admirable job of compiling ChucK on  
windows and linux before releases and regularly spends chunks of time  
devoted to each port. While I know that all ports work, I am sure  
that osx will probably "run the best", maybe not the fastest, but  
probably with the least bugs and easiest to install. Other people  
have reported problems like yours when trying to install ChucK on  
different flavours of linux.

There was this thread on the mailing list in February but it didn't  
get too far.


Good luck with ChucK.
