NetBSD 2.0 NetBSD 2.0 (lundestad) #118: Sat Jan 28 19:46:11 EST 2006  xxx@xxx:/usr/src/sys/arch/i386/compile/lundestad i386
The patch at
can be applied to the audio/rosegarden sources to enable MIDI playing
on NetBSD (with the kern/32694 patch). This is a very ancient X11
version of rosegarden but at least can be used as a simple MIDI playback
device with stop/start/forward/back, and has some notation capabilities

wip/rosegarden is much more fully featured (and much more huge, and
drags in 140 MB+ of KDE baggage) but is not yet able to play MIDI on

This is a single patch file affecting multiple source files and can be
applied manually after 'make patch' in audio/rosegarden. Easier for
me to make one file than the several for a canonical pkgsrc patch set,
and a simple mkpatches / make makepatchsum after applying it ought to
create an updated package (some attention might be needed to the files
created de novo).

Playing is fairly solid, but can be made to fall behind on a few
Note Offs if using Jeff Glatt's "Joan of Arc" as a test file. :)
