I get the following log output when I boot ardour 3 alpha (*my highlight*):

I have tried to install jack2 (1.9.7) by building the tar ball, 
currently I have v. 1.9.6 (jackdmp 1.9.6). What happens, it seems, is 
that 1.9.6 remains installed as a separate program (i.e., the newer 
version does not seem to overwrite the older), & I think gives me 2 
versions of jack, which I know is not the thing to have (& jack 1.9.7 
will not connect with the server when needed). When I try to uninstall, 
or remove jack 1.9.6 via synaptic, it 'wants' to remove a bunch of jack 
related programs, including my install of ardour 2.8.11, & not only 
that, but reinstall jack1. Is there some way around this quandary (this 
may be a deja vu circumstance)?

& perhaps, for my rather elementary purposes, having a single computer, 
using a echo mia-midi sound card, one midi keyboard, a Yamaha 01v 
digital mixing console, jack 1.9.6 is more than sufficient?

Thanks for any suggestions, etc., in advance.


P.s., I'm looking forward on getting ardour 3 to actually connect with 
my midi hardware (no luck so far).
