[ardour-users] jack_fst and gcc4

After the Linux distros started moving to gcc4 is obvious that many old
applications will not compile. Unfortunately one of those applications
is Wine 20040505, the only version you can use for Jack_fst. I don't
know what is the satus of the project but I really hope is not dead and
that we see an upgrade. I keep finding a big demand for using VST
plugins in Linux so there should be another reason why this kind of
tools are not being developed. Is it a legal one? I'm just curious. I
know that LADSPA plugins are becoming very good substitutes but there
are some really good VST instruments that I hardly see being ported to
LADSPA (e.g. Synful Orchestra). I tried to make jack_fst work using a
patch found in the wine-list
http://www.winehq.org/hypermail/wine-users/2004/10/0451.html but it
didn't work for me. I just hope that the developers keep the good work
and help the linux-audio community... or maybe I should learn C and
start working on it :-)
