I think you could have been perhaps a little less rude, but I assume 
that's just how it looks in email and not take it personally. For 
context: I've been using Ardour since at least 2003 (the earliest email 
I spotted at a quick glance) and I'm listed in both the CONTRIBUTORS and 
the TRANSLATORS file of the very alpha ardour2 tarball we're talking 
about. Anyway...

I had already said JACK really wasn't running, I was logged from several 
miles away and there was someone else on the console at the time. For 
the purposes of answering your request that wasn't important:

               - can you run the program?

I confirmed it does build on SuSE 10.0, with everything it requires 
being available on the install DVD; it does install; it does run at 
least as far as falling over when it found Jack wasn't running. I also 
said I can test it properly, moving onto your section 2, this evening 
when I am at the machine itself.

Well, Ardour 1 doesn't segfault if JACK isn't running. That's different.
