pitty that Ardour does not give you any messages about why it could
not startup.

enfin, please be sure that you did *configure* alsa (and the CCRMA
kernel if you want to use it).

furthermore, YES you need Jack in order to use Ardour. also, you must
start JAck and Ardour as the same user! some useful links:

# Jack user doc: http://www.djcj.org/LAU/jack/
to see if it 'just-works' i think its safer to run Jack without
realtime capabilities, so dont use -R. when ardour and jack work okay
you can always turn it on and start some serious recording ;-)

# Ardour user doc: http://www.djcj.org/LAU/ardour/
this should get you started i think. dont forget to check out Jack
and Ardours homepages for faq's and other info!

jack:   http://jackit.sourceforge.net/
ardour: http://ardour.sourceforge.net/

so, first make sure your Jack works fine, then try to start Ardour.
