Yes, that's exactly what I have been doing, with RPMs from planet CCRMA.

I had the 0.9beta19 RPM binary from planet CCRMA and it crashed when trying to 
edit any plugin.  So I opened a bug on mantis, which you closed earlier this 
week with a reference to not being able to support fixes on binaries from 
uncontrolled distributions.  So here I am, stuck...  trying to get Ardour to 
_work_, and being instructed on mantis by the developer's implication that the 
fix for the bug, or at least the beginning of getting any attention for the bug, 
is to begin with installing from source, and then when I run into trouble, the 
ardour-users list forwards me here where it is suggested that I go back to the 
planet CCRMA RPM with the unfixable bug...  hey I'd prefer to stick with the 
planet CCRMA RPM to begin with, but it doesn't work.  It's tough on the one hand 
for you to suggest that we use RPMs or other method from planet CCRMA (I don't 
use apt because this machine's not on a network), and then bail out of fixing 
bugs that may be manifest in that method of distribution.

...  so...  I just tried to build Ardour again and I'll type in all of the 
errors and post them here, because maybe they're real...
