Ardour has a known bug (I'm waiting for the next tarball which should
fix it). You have to have Jack up and running for ardour to be of any
use, it needs Jack as the i/o subsystem for audio (see the Jack section
for how to start it). The current Ardour version dies pretty badly if it
does not find Jack running (it kills its process group and that includes
the whole of the gui session).
