I did this on Ubuntu to get Jack 0.120 but of course it did not replace 
jack2 completely. So I removed everything related to jack in /usr/lib 
and ran make install again.
I still had to reboot first to make it run but now I have it up and 

Ardour3 compiled and runs pretty much OK now showing a lot of progress 
compared to the builds I made in December.

kudos! :-)

The list of dependencies on ardour.org/building is not complete anymore 
so waf stopped 2 or 3 times complaining about missing deps. uuid was one 
and cppunit another if I remember it correctly. All needed stuff can be 
installed using apt though...

UbuntuStudio runs astoundingly well even though it only comes with a 
kernel-package named "generic". In a first test I encountered less than 
5 xruns within 2-3h of starting apps, recording, tweaking settings and 
even installing missing packages. With jack set to use a MAudio MobilPre 
USB-Interface with 128frames, 2 periods at 48KHz. But I think I actually 
*heared* some drop-outs especially in ZynaddSubFX, though no xruns 
showed up.

That may be a wise decision and on a working machine I only build 
software from source, that can be cleanly installed parallel to its 
distro-package into /usr/local. In most cases I simply use versions as 
provided by a repo. Especially for the basic-system (Kernel, Jack, Alsa) 
I only compile for myself, if there is absolutely no other way. I rather 
install an entirely new system instead -- as I did with Fedora14/CCRMA 
last December. Since Studio64 Electric I never had a system as reliable 
and powerfull like F14/CCRMA on one of my computers so replacing 
something in the core of it would be a too dangerous experiment for my 
taste ;-)

best regards
