Ardour looks great and I'd love to try it. Can anyone provide a basic step by step process for installing it on Fedora Core 5?
You should check out Planet CCRMA at
which is an "overlay" for most Fedora distributions that adds a low latency kernel and just about every audio/video/media app for Linux as prebuilt packages. Ardour2 is already available at CCRMA.
The one problem is that Fernando keeps his software repository a lot more up to date than his web pages, so you will get the impression, perhaps, that FC5 is not yet supported. It is.
Whoa! I am running FC5 here and it seems I went through the (little) trouble of building 2.0 for no reason then!
You're in good hands with Planet CCRMA topper, I've used it for 3 years now with no trouble.
