Adi, Well hmmm I can't elaborate much more than that unfortunately, it was not discussed in specifics but a standalone binary (like the others you mentioned) was the general idea, Seablade also said something similar on the Ardour forum recently again without any detail.
A sincere and heartfelt "THANK-YOU!!!" for the updated JACK and FFADO stuff, I am still shipping JACK1 to satisfy some 3rd party dependencies but I'll look forward to it whenever you get to it. At the risk of sounding stupid (well perhaps stupid-er), I have this 'experimental' line in my sources.list: #Experimental deb http://ftp.us.debian.org/debian/ experimental main non-free contrib deb-src http://ftp.us.debian.org/debian/ experimental main non-free contrib However there doesn't seem to be any of the pkg-multimedia stuff in there I'm looking for, am I missing another or different experimental repository? Guidance appreciated, and thanks again for your attention to JACK, FFADO, and Ardour packaging!
