First, forgive me if I'm just totally doing something
wrong, I'm pretty new at this...
Ok, so I have an older computer (pIII 500) and wanted
to try Ardour, so to start fresh I wiped it and
installed Fedora Core 3 (from the links on the Planet
CCRMA website).  
Went through the Feddora install ok, then installed
the CCRMA kernel and Alsa drivers and booted into it. 
Seemed to run fine so I ran the apt-get install
audio-apps and installed of the audio apps.
Now my problem, when I try to run qjackctl (running
with the default settings since I didn't really know
what to set it to), it starts and then soon dies.
Here's what the ouput says, if anyone can tell me what
I'm doing wrong I'd be grateful...
