X11 Display and Jack
I have an intel macmini, which has no monitor or keyboard and which I control with VNC remote desktop. This is kind of slow and laggy, so I'd like to just do a remote X11 display. I tried invoking ardour from the command line via /Applications/Ardour.app/Contents/MacOS/Ardour -DISPLAY $DISPLAY , but it ignored my argument (and environment variable) and opened on Display :0.0 . So I tried instead to open it via /Applications/Ardour.app/Contents/Resources/bin/exporter . This worked fine except for it had Jack errors:
allocate_mach_clientport: can't find mach server port
Can't allocate mach port
My questions: what's going on in /Applications/Ardour.app/Contents/MacOS/Ardour ? It's a binary file, so I can't read it. Is it in the source tarball? What's it's relative path there? What goes on so that it finds jack correctly?
