|Fixed in Version|
|Summary||0006946: Ardour 5 clocks can get stuck|
I stumbled across a way to get Ardour clock displays to get stuck and not show the current time anymore.
|Steps To Reproduce||Preparation|
- Create a session
- Change primary clock to show timecode
- Change secondary clock to show bars and beats
Reproducing the bug
- Click on secondary clock and press the enter - key
- Click on primary clock
- Click on secondary clock
Both of the clocks are now stuck
- Click on the timeline and press play: Clocks don't advance
|Tags||No tags attached.|
This bug still exists on Ardour 5.1.
I should add that this procedure reveals a deeper bug in Ardour code. After you go through the procedure described above the clocks don't accept any input anymore (clicks or keyboard input) and if you now try to change the clock display format the clock turns into a black box with no display what so ever.
It seems that the code might be waiting for keyboard input to finish (return to be pressed) on one of the clocks, but Ardour doesn't realize that the focus has moved away from the clock that waits for the keyboard input.
This creates a deadlock situation that freezes both of the clocks totally.
||Still exists on Ardour 5.3|
I can confirm this issue exists in version 5.3 from ardour.org(linux 32bit)
This is now fixed in git. Ridiculously deep diving was needed to determine the source of the problem.
Please confirm the fix via a nightly build or your own.
||I can no longer reproduce with master@835b874e|
||I can not reproduce this problem anymore with Ardour 5.3.54-g835b874. Thanks for digging in and fixing this. I hope the work done prevented some possible future complications with the clocks. I think the bugreport can be closed now.|
||our convention is that developers can only mark a bug as "resolved". reporters get to close bugs when they are satisfied with the status.|
