running ardour for 1st time

===== Sun Nov 05 2006 ===== 22:55:22 Europe/Berlin =====

I cut and pasted this from the console.log
my computer is a mac osx 10.3.9.
the processor type is: 1.25 GHz PowerPC G4

This was what I assumed I had to do from the README.txt that came from Ardour.

that was such a helpful post i just sent…!
the console.log. should have read:

and, it seems as though Ardour doesn’t run…
Thanks for any help, best,

What version of ardour are you trying to run?

Why do I see a reference to PD in there?

The version I downloaded is -0.99.3-panther
The reference to PD came about as I managed to click accidently on the PD icon as I was (at that stage) trying to figure out the next step…
Strange thing is, though, that I tried running ardour again, today, just to see, and it managed to build everything up as expected, and even work. So, false alarm… -at least for the time being!
Thanks anyway.
