FL Studio stopped working on Manjaro

Postby Death » Tue Oct 01, 2019 9:18 pm

Update 1: Ok. For anyone who stumbles across this thread or is just interested, it looks like this one got solved to some extent. It requires a workaround, but it's very simple!

I've been trying to run FLS via PlayOnLinux and Lutris. All you have to do with either of these programs is launch FLS as normal, then end the process of the program you launched it from in the task manager which will allow FLS to fully load. If you're using Lutris, then make sure not to end the Lutris wrapper, just the main Lutris process. That's it :)

I'm not exactly sure what the problem is, but at least there's a simple way to solve it. Thanks all.

Original post below:

I'm on the Arch based Manjaro and for some reason, FL Studio stopped working recently. I've tried going back to previously used Wine & Kernel versions and reinstalling PlayOnLinux + FL Studio (including a fresh FL Studio install in a new prefix), but nothing works. I think there was probably some kind of update to Manjaro/Arch that did it.

Basically, all PlayOnLinux debug logs end in something that looks like this and will keep repeating similar outputs every 60 seconds until I stop the program from attempting to run:

Code: Select all

0060:err:ntdll:RtlpWaitForCriticalSection section 0x1438f20 "?" wait timed out in thread 0060, blocked by 0049, retrying (60 sec)
0041:err:ntdll:RtlpWaitForCriticalSection section 0x1438f20 "?" wait timed out in thread 0041, blocked by 002a, retrying (60 sec)


I've also noticed someone on Arch is experiencing a similar issue to me which started around the same time, but with Kontakt Player: viewtopic.php?f=62&t=20525
I think we may both be victim to the same problem. Hopefully between these two threads we can figure it out.

Anyway, here's the PlayOnLinux debug output for the existing install of FLS:

Bumping again before I consider reinstalling Manjaro and starting from scratch because I just can't figure this one out..

I take it that the DAW you are to run is a Windows one and that you are using Wine to run it. When I google one of the the errors that you posted (err:ntdll:RtlpWaitForCriticalSection) then I get links to discussions about Wine.

So you might have better luck in a Manjaro or Wine specific forum. Strange thing is, like you said, that rolling back to previous versions of FL Studio, Wine and your kernel doesn't help. So I'd start in a Manjaro forum if I were you and ask questions about Wine.

Good luck! :)

I don't use Reddit. I suppose it may be worth making an account and asking there though.

I've tried going back to previous known working kernel/Wine/program versions but it still doesn't work. As far as I can tell, there has been some other kind of update that has caused this. I thought this forum would be the place to start, but a Manjaro or Wine forum would be good next steps.

Thanks both of you for the replies. Since my last post, I tried installing the current and an older version of Manjaro in virtual machines to see if I could get it to work, but still, it didn't work. I know a virtual machine is not the same, but it did make me think that reinstalling everything may be a waste of time, so I decided not to do it anytime soon. However, one thing I did try was installing an older version of FL Studio and it worked. The downside is that it can't load my projects created with newer versions. But once the new version is working again, I'll be able to carry on with them.

So, I guess I'll try heading over to some of the other places mentioned next. Cheers guys.

Ok. For anyone who stumbles across this thread or is just interested, it looks like this one got solved to some extent. It requires a workaround, but it's very simple!

I've been trying to run FLS via PlayOnLinux and Lutris. All you have to do with either of these programs is launch FLS as normal, then end the process of the program you launched it from in the task manager which will allow FLS to fully load. If you're using Lutris, then make sure not to end the Lutris wrapper, just the main Lutris process. That's it :)

I'm not exactly sure what the problem is, but at least there's a simple way to solve it. Thanks all.
