   Just reporting back that Ardour2-beta5.1 built find and is running
here on my AMD64 box. Very few comments about any operation aspects at
this time:

1) Ardour2 was unable to start Jack on it's own with whatever
preexisting config files I had around. When I fired up QJC then Ardour
came up.

2) As happens with a few other programs Ardour2 wanted access to my
Gnome 'keyring' which required a password. I supplied the password and
moved forward.

3) Might be a first time run issue but it seemed to take quite awhile
for the GUI to actually come up. When it did I thought it looked
*VERY* good. Everything seemed very crisp.

   I'm not intending to do much with it right now as I have no time or
even instruments to record. None the less it is a beautiful piece of
work. Cangrats to all of you!
