[linux-audio-user] VST_SERVER and Edirol Hypercanvas?

So I got Jack_fst built last night...after going thru the usual
./configure nightmares. These mainly came down to not having devel
packages installed on MDK. (takes that to get the "pkg-config" files in
/usr/lib/pkg-config).

I already had Thac's "libfst" installed so I built Jack_fst. I used the
"fixheaders" script on the afectfx.h or whatever it is that was
installed from the fst rpm. It5 seemed to work as it allowed "make" to
do just that; Make! :)

So...it's showtime.....I run Jack up in the usual manner. I hold my
breath anf in a terminal i run "jack_fst Hyper Canvas. I see it
hesitating and comes back with " "no such file or directory". Ok...at
least it didn't esplode! :) So I specify the full path. (I copied all my
.dll vst's into /usr/lib/wine) I run 'jack_fst Hyper Canvas'...{still
holding breath} It now returns "cant load Hyper". Hmmm...Well at least
it sees it but does not like the space in the file name. 

So I truncate the file name by renaming it "HyperCanvas". I run it again
in same manner...Pauses {face is now blue}...Pops up several windows
registry errors in a box labelled "Edirol Hyper Canvas" 

"Cannot open registry."
{1E711428-673C-ETC,ETC,ETC}
	OK

Then terminal responds with;

"fst signal handler 11, thread=0x4095c260"
"fst signal handler 11, (TEB=0x40a22000)"

And then dies....and I finally take a breath! :)

I'm so close I can SMELL it!  Is this just a permissions issue? fst is
clearly talking to Hyper canvas. I tried some othe vst's. Also sometimes
get something like "Could not talk to GUI thread" or such in terminal?

Thanks
