Slackware 13 -37 Ardour audio studio won't start


Has anyone installed Ardour on Slackware 13-37 and got it
running properly ?
When I try to start up Ardour I get this error message:
wine: Bad EXE format for Z:\usr\bin\ardour2

In my system I've got:
/usr/bin/ardour2 --> /usr/bin/ardourvst
I've no idea why. That's just how it installed.
Anyone got any idea what this error message means and
is there anything I can do about it?

What happens when you run
/usr/bin/ardour
from a terminal without invoking wine?

If that doesn't start, post the exact error, or the output of
file /usr/bin/ardourvst

Slackware 13 - 37 Ardour audio studio won't start

I started Ardour by using the KDE menu. Under Multimedia,
I clicked on "Ardour". A little red triangle jumped around
near my mouse cursor for a few seconds and then nothing.
So started a terminal and found ardour2 in /usr/bin.
I started it with the command "/usr/bin/ardour2"
Using ls -l /usr/bin/ardour2 I discovered that ardour2
is just a link to /usr/bin/ardourvst
Ardour calls for wine all by itself.
I did not start wine.
On Ardour's web site they state that Ardour is written
for only Linux or Mac. So what do you need wine for if
you are not interested in Windows ? I don't understand
this at all. Anybody got any ideas ?

VST support requires wine.

Now we can diagnose.
KDE thinks ardour requires wine, but it doesn't. KDE arranges such things in the launcher usually. The vst bit needs wine. Go figure - it's probably a separate exe. If you start ardour out of a terminal, does it run ok?

I'm not going to build this to test. From the slackbuild readme:

Quote:
For building ardour with support for VST-plugins, you have to pass
VST=yes to the script. This will additionally require wine.
I think it is the ardourvst script itself calling wine(?)

Slackware 13 - 37 Ardour audio studio won't start

Got it solved. Thanks for all your help, especially the
tip about not activating the VST Plugins during installation.
I used removepkg to remove the installed ardour package.
It was ment of Slackware 12. I should have used the package
from SlackBuilds.org
Then I went to SlackBuilds.org and got their package and
tried to install it. I failed a couple of times because,
to my surprise, I did not have the dependencies
libgnomecanvas-2.0 and libsndfile. I got both from SlackBuilds.org.
I used the command "LV2=yes ardour.SlackBuild"
Ardour installed and runs just fine. Thanks for all your help.
