My interest has been piqued by netpd and a bunch of us here have been
playing with it. It's pretty fantastic --- there's only one caveat,
which is that the netpd server crashes and pretty easily at that. I've
seen the netpd.org server crash a bunch of times now. I downloaded and
installed the server patch on an ubuntu Gutsy machine and that crashes
similarly. I looked at the patch --- nothing too complex. I suspect
there is nothing wrong with the patch itself.
I'm suspecting the problem is with netserver, written by Olaf Matthes .
I suspect this because netsend~ and netreceive~ crash in my use in
similar ways to what I am seeing now with netpd --- Olaf Matthes wrote
those too. I was wondering if anybody could confirm or refute that
netserver is what is crashing netpd. It would be great if we fixed this.
In general I think we have a problem with some externals involving
network communication and if we fixed this in several of the externals
maybe we would solve a bunch of problems at once. I might be up for a
shot at it myself.
P.S. Some of us tuned in for the netpd jam that we thought happens every
Thursday at 22:00 CEST. Nobody was there except us. Is this just old
