Description of problem:
"JACK is not running..."
Shouldn't the ardour installation indicate a "requires" dependency on jack?
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install ardour
2. Start ardour from KMenu
3. Create a new session
4. See the "Starting audio engine" window appear
5. See the "Ardour could not connect to JACK." window appear.
6. Click on the quit button.
Time to put on my sysadmin hat and join the hords of ardour users in trying to figure out why JACK doesn't work like artsd or pulseaudio.
Ardour installation should have sorted this out from the get-go or maybe use another audio engine.
Yes I know this might be considered a JACK issue/bug, but another point of view is to consider that this is an ardour usability issue/bug.
Do you have any good ideas howto deal with this, I guess we want ardour to work
in the default pulseaudio setup by default, and allow easy (maybe even
automatic) reconfiguration to jack if that is available.
Any input much appreciated, and a happy new year of course :)
This message is a reminder that Fedora 8 is nearing its end of life.
Approximately 30 (thirty) days from now Fedora will stop maintaining
and issuing updates for Fedora 8. It is Fedora's policy to close all
bug reports from releases that are no longer maintained. At that time
this bug will be closed as WONTFIX if it remains open with a Fedora
'version' of '8'.
Package Maintainer: If you wish for this bug to remain open because you
plan to fix it in a currently maintained version, simply change the 'version'
to a later Fedora version prior to Fedora 8's end of life.
Bug Reporter: Thank you for reporting this issue and we are sorry that
we may not be able to fix it before Fedora 8 is end of life. If you
would still like to see this bug fixed and are able to reproduce it
against a later version of Fedora please change the 'version' of this
bug to the applicable version. If you are unable to change the version,
please add a comment here and someone will do it for you.
Although we aim to fix as many bugs as possible during every release's
lifetime, sometimes those efforts are overtaken by events. Often a
more recent Fedora release includes newer upstream software that fixes
bugs or makes them obsolete.
The process we are following is described here:
Fedora 8 changed to end-of-life (EOL) status on 2009-01-07. Fedora 8 is
no longer maintained, which means that it will not receive any further
security or bug fix updates. As a result we are closing this bug.
If you can reproduce this bug against a currently maintained version of
Fedora please feel free to reopen this bug against that version.
Thank you for reporting this bug and we are sorry it could not be fixed.
