I want to highlight this bug, even if many probably know it, because
it is absolutely to avoid in a sound machine.
In another thread "[LAU] ardour3 on debian stable" :
> Unpacking ardour3 (from ardour3_3.5.74~dfsg-1_i386.deb) ...
Some libraries employed by ardour (for example rubberband, vamp-sdk
and qm-dsp) use sin|cos|exp from `libm'. There is a degradation of the
performance (3:1 in my code for sound synthesis) caused by a bug in
glibc 2.17 (more info here ).
Some distros are updated (for example fedora ) but in some cases,
one is the last slackware 14.1, it is necessary to recompile the
sources after the application of the patch.
For debian users: I don't see the patch in 2.17-97 .
