Start it from a command line, then cut and paste here the messages you get.

Thanks for pointing to this package.. I didnt know it existed. Some packages can be hidden away in an old forum thread ;)

/usr/nekoware/bin/milkytracker launches for me, with latest nekoware packages... just about all of them installed.

Running 'ldd' command on the milkytracker binary:
ldd ./milkytracker

shows it uses the following libs... make sure yours is not using something from /usr/freeware/ or shows a library missing: (note, my output is from an O2 system running 6.5.29)

[o2]:/usr/nekoware/bin $ ldd milkytracker => /usr/nekoware/lib/ => /usr/lib32/ => /usr/nekoware/lib/ => /usr/lib32/ => /usr/lib32/ => /usr/lib32/ => /usr/lib32/ => /usr/lib32/ => /usr/nekoware/lib/ => /usr/lib32/ => /usr/lib32/ => /usr/lib32/

You should get the following two lines in the console output after running milkytracker::
SDL: Using audio driver: esd
SDL: Buffer size = 2048 samples (requested 2048)

Hope this helps?
