Just an annoying newbie-type question, I'm afraid.  (I have plenty more
where this comes from... ;)

I have Planet CCRMA 32-bit installed on a Fedora 8 machine.  I have what
I think are fairly typical yum repos set up -- fedora, livna,
planetccrma -- as far as I remember, all stock configs except that
"protect=yes" is set for most of them.

I've started to play around with Ardour in little bits over the last few
months.  I'm mostly very impressed with it, and I'm sure I've barely
scratched the surface.  The current version I have on F8 is 2.4.1
(ardour-2.4.1-1.fc8.i386.rpm), from the former fedora-updates -- now
fedora-updates-newkey, I suppose.  I'm running into various issues and
mysterious things that are either bugs or simply clear signs of my
ignorance.  I noticed in the release announcement for 2.5 back in July a
mention of "Tons of bug fixes and several new features", so naturally
I'd like to see whether some of my problems might already be fixed, on
the outside chance that they aren't all ignorance-related...  But I
haven't seen 2.5 show up in any updates so far, and it doesn't look to
be in the -testing repo either.  IIRC, 2.4.1 became available from the
repo like 3 or 4 months after the release announcement, so is this

I thought I'd seen a couple mentions of a CCRMA build of ardour in this
mailing list, so I started to wonder whether I had something messed up
in the repo config files.  But then, I don't see a .rpm for ardour in
the ccrma repo directory tree (using a web browser), and now I can't
even find such a reference in any recent e-mails.  So maybe it was just
a hallucination.

I can try downloading the source and building it myself, but wanted to
avoid "re-inventing the wheel" if it's already available.

Thanks much,
Don Estabrook
