I built Ardour successfully on this computer a couple of weeks ago, but a serious hardware malfunction has forced a re-install of the OS. So here I am with the same OS, mostly the same computer I'm pretty sure I've got all the dependencies on board... but I'm getting this:

scons: Building targets ...
scons: *** [ardour_system.rc] Source `ardour.rc.in' not found, needed by target `ardour_system.rc'.
scons: building terminated because of errors

Can anyone tell me what's going on?

As you probably have guessed the error is this "Source `ardour.rc.in' not found".
Do you have that file in your ardour source directory?
How did you download the source - a tarball or through svn?
If svn - is it ardour2 or 3?

Now that's weird... when I reinstalled I preserved the /home partition, so the Ardour I tried to build was the same source in the same directory that i used when I built it before, which is why I didn't think that could be the problem. But sure enough, I re-downloaded it and it has the proper file... it's building as we speak. Now if I could just get jack to work... see my other thread.
