I am a long time Ardour 4.7 user and occassional v5.12 demo user. I have recently tried to install v 6.5 on the same machine with a couple of issues.
(Machine is Sony Viao 4G RAM i5 processor running KXStudio distro based on Ubuntu 14.04)
When I try and run command below…:
It starts to look ok, uncompresses Ardour package and after prompt for Sudo password says:
“Ardour was compiled with gcc5, your system uses an older version of the
standard c++ library. Plugins on your system may not load or plugin-UIs
may cause crashes.”
Though not my main issue, It would be nice to see how I can get passed this having checked ‘Muon package manager’ it shows kxstudio-repos-gcc5 which I can set to install but it seems to not manage to do it, the apply button never becomes available.
The main issue though is after I follow option to continue regardless, it says “Checking system libs to see if they are compatible with Ardour.” then many rows of a repeated message:
“libmvec.so.1 => not found”
Eventually ending with : “!!! ERROR !!! - Missing library detected!”
I love Ardour having used it for many years and just made a donation to continue using it. I suspect my issue may be due to my distro version of Ubuntu being dated but really prefer not to have to update to new os (where Ubuntu Studio looks to be the only strong alternative), unless really necessary. I’m so used to picking up a copy paste of a command out of a forum to some success when I have issue I just need some good steer. I’m intermediate at a push when it comes to Linux so would be grateful for any advise.
