[Ardour-Users] Ardour 3.0 build problem

But that is just it... I know this, & have seemed to get all the 
appropriate dependencies up to THOSE ONES (maybe 8 of them)! I found not 
even the non "-dev" versions of those I listed... (except the headers 
for "header boost/weak_ptr.hpp" etc., which may be another kind of 
problem (?)),  & basically, looked thru the wiki on installation... & 
found no instructions on *those* items.

I have built (say) Ardour 2.xx quite a few times... struggling with 
installation of the dependencies, etc., with some differing versions of 
my distro (Ubuntu), got the program to run, but had digital audio input  
problems (probably sound card, etc., compatibility?) with it... so 
Ardour as a *functioning* program (I have been doing digital audio for 
maybe 15 years, much of which was with Pro Tools, when I ran Mac OS, pre 
version 9.0), as is (the so-called "stable" version), is strictly a 
hypothetical, for me; point is, to reiterate, & emphasize, version 2.xx 
is not a useable program for me... I was hoping to see if there were 
issues that might have been resolved, so that I could reconsider 
utilizing Ardour.

So if you are saying, even if you know better (re installation) & have 
problems where documentation is not (at the least) apparently 
available... too bad... or what?   & are you really saying you (who ever 
"you" is) are not interested in some one actually trying to learn? That 
would be just too sad.
