Hi;

I'm a newbie and this may be a bit over my head so if anyone can give me guidance I would so much appreciate it.

I am running a Mac Mini 1.66 dual core Intel machine with 1 GB DDR2 SDRAM using Mac Os X Version 10.4.7.

I have been trying to run Ardour for the first time to try it out but I have been getting Apple X11 not installed error messeges. I have loaded the correct version directly from the Apple Disc and I have found the loaded tools included x11 on my disk so I know they are present.

I have also started Jack Pilot prior to starting Ardour.

The following is a transcript from the console window when I try to start Ardour:

Thanks to anyone who can give me a hand.

Tony

I just tried installing Ardour for the first time, and so far I have the same problem. What`s different is that I am running a dual 1.8 GHz PowerPC G5, 2 GB RAM, Mac OS X version 10.4.6 (in Norwegian). According to the installation, everything should be fine. At the installation DVD I installed the file Xcode Tools/Packages/X11SDK.pkg. I hope that was the right file, since there were no other X11 files I found right there. But I checked as Josh said, and it seems like X11.app isn´t there! Does anyone know how to get it there/any other tip to work this out? Thanks!

... and will be handy for building X11 based apps, but there is another install for the actual application. Put your Mac OS X disc (or system discs that came with your computer) into your drive, and scroll down to the optional install package. Double-click it, and look at the Applications arrow... X11 is in there. Once installed, it should be in /Applications/Utilities

Hope that helps.

Thank you very much! I didn`t notice that it was more at the installation DVD earlier... Now X11 is on it`s right place, and Ardour opens! Only problem was that I forgot to start Jack first...
