it sounds to me as though you have never run ardour before. in which
case, i strongly recommend that you avoid testing ardour2. 

ardour will never complain about not being able to connect to JACK

	* you actually do not have JACK installed
	* JACK is installed but misconfigured
	* your system is misconfigured

if you have run ardour before on this machine, ardour2 is not going to
behave (in this particular respect) any differently AFAIK.
