As I had a nice SSD crash (everything disapeared in the electronic limbo) I had to reinstall on a new SSD and moved to Ubuntu 17.04
I did not had any specific issue to compile sonic-pi.
But when I run the resulted sonic-pi, I’m stucked on the splash screen.
In the scsynth.log, I have the following:
# Starting SuperCollider 2017-10-19 15:04:35 ERROR: Invalid option -B supercollider_synth options: -v print the supercollider version and exit -u <udp-port-number> a port number 0-65535 -t <tcp-port-number> a port number 0-65535 -c <number-of-control-bus-channels> (default 4096) -a <number-of-audio-bus-channels> (default 128) -i <number-of-input-bus-channels> (default 8) -o <number-of-output-bus-channels> (default 8) -z <block-size> (default 64) -Z <hardware-buffer-size> (default 0) -S <hardware-sample-rate> (default 0) -b <number-of-sample-buffers> (default 1024) -n <max-number-of-nodes> (default 1024) -d <max-number-of-synth-defs> (default 1024) -m <real-time-memory-size> (default 8192) -w <number-of-wire-buffers> (default 64) -r <number-of-random-seeds> (default 64) -D <load synthdefs? 1 or 0> (default 1) -R <publish to Rendezvous? 1 or 0> (default 1) -l <max-logins> (default 64) maximum number of named return addresses stored also maximum number of tcp connections accepted -p <session-password> When using TCP, the session password must be the first command sent.

To quit, send a 'quit' command via UDP or TCP, or press ctrl-C.
I guess scsynth does not start and blocks sonic-pi start.
maybe there’s a minimal version of scsynth required for sonic-pi?
I’m currently using scsynth v3.7.0 as proposed by Ubuntu 17.04
