The Ardour-rpms (thacs) does not seem to require ardour-pixmaps to 
install. It doesn't ask for it, but ardour fails at startup if you 
haven't installed it. Had this problem myself, I remember now.

I uninstalled ardour-pixmaps, wich btw didn't require uninstall of 
ardour, and got this output when trying to run ardour:
