Hi Gordon :)

before someone else will boil over like I did.

Please try to understand the trigger of my misbehaving.

In the web there were some people with a broken Suse 11.0 JACK, because
there was a broken package, e.g. take a look at the Ardour forums.
Days after they have broken there JACKs, I have broken my JACK too, by
using the same package.
I reported this and the one who build the package said in a forum, that
he is using pro-audio Linux too, by using those packages and in a
mailing list he said, the package isn't broken, I made something wrong,
because I have no knowledge, nobody else should have the same problem.

The truth was, that everybody had the same problem, some people had it
before I had it and even after he recognised that the  package was
broken, he  blamed the users and a day after there still was a lib that 
can damage a workstation.

This is something I noticed very often, that bug reports are ignored,
because the user should be the one who made something wrong. YMMV

I'm lurking only and even didn't reply to the many mails before. I hope
we can forget about it now. I'm sorry.

Is the package fixed now?
