I've been struggling to make pocketsphinx work with the audio system of my raspberry pi. As stated in pocketsphinx's website, one of the steps to build it for a raspberry pi is to execute this:
What this does is to setup the environment prior to actually compile the program. I just have ALSA installed (no PulseAudio, no JACK), but configure continues to say that I has found JACK. So, when I run make, it compiles sphinxbase to use JACK. Then, when I try to run pocketsphinx, of course it fails with the following message:
jack server not running?
FATAL_ERROR: "continuous.c", line 246: Failed to open audio device
Why does pocketsphinx want to use JACK? How can I force it to use ALSA (which is the only audio system available by the way). Thanks!
