Hello, I am trying to run Nyquist on the command line as a stand alone program on x86 GNU/Linux (Gentoo). I followed the installation instructions in sys/unix/README.txt and everything went seemingly smooth, except I have failed my first test of making sound. When trying “(play (osc 60))” I get the following:
Saving sound file to /home/myusername/nyquist/./myusername-temp.wav
*** Fatal error : sizeof (off_t) != sizeof (sf_count_t)
*** This means that libsndfile was not configured correctly.
I have installed libsndfile and rebuilt nyquist (both using make clean and re-downloading from source), but I can’t seem to figure this out. The only relevant link I found was here: https://lists.cs.princeton.edu/pipermail/chuck/2004-October/000106.html.
I would really like to use Nyquist as I enjoy Lisp programming, and this seems like a perfect fit. Any help would be greatly appreciated (I don’t want to resort to emailing the author, even though he seems support-friendly enough). Thank you!
