Further issues on FC5 x86 64

I'm not getting any input from my jack connections (using freebob). I've been having a hell of a time finding any software that will let me run it, to check and see if it's a jack issue.

further to this, I don't see any kind of edit cursor within ardour, and nothing i import wants to play. any ideas?

Are you able to start ardour alright? Does ardour see the jack ports for the freebob device?

I got the same problem on Ubuntu 6.06. No curser, no way to get any sounds out, but I can import wav-files. When I start from shell, I got the following report:

ardour: [INFO]: No H/W specific optimizations in use
ardour: [WARNING]: Your system generates "Mod2" when the NumLock key is pressed. This can cause problems when editing so Ardour will use Mod3 to mean Meta rather than Mod2

This even if I unlock the NumLock before starting ardour. (it is locked by default from a script-package called Automatix)

I'm afraid I already mixed up all jack-patching-settings by trying somehow using missing intuition: wihtout any positive effect.

The commands dpkg-reconfigure jack or ardour just do prompt the answer, that both packages aren't installed, though they surely are.

Any ideas?

Thanks and greetings

Update: Ardour starts fine, and runs fairly well when jack is started with the alsa backend, which leads me to believe that my problem lies with jack and/or the freebob backend. I'm hoping this isn't simply a matter of waiting for the next release of freebob...
