I recently emerged Ardour to my gentoo, but its giving me that sad “could not start JACK” message, which goes like:
There are several possible reasons:
- You requested audio parameters that are not supported…
- JACK is running as another user.
Please consider the possibilities, and perhaps try different parameters.
Now when I run qjackctl and hit START, it stops and give me the message.
