I should look :). I think go back one commit to revision 128 and release
will give access to the cpu governor with minimal changes to GUI. Revision
129 is experiment and a work in progress not ready to release by any
means. The short story is the system access model as used now will not
scale to do audio setup. The GUI can not run as root and deal with jack,
pulse, etc. in userland. I have started work on moving the GUI to userland
(where policykit suggests it should be anyway) and having it call a system
process to do the few system things like real time repair and CPU
Ross, if you can move -controls back a revision and release for us that
would be wonderful as my local version of -controls is a long way from
being anything like able to make fixes with. let me know if you can't.

we already have Ardour 5.5 in the pipeline if it can get into zesty that
would be really good. I would not go for 5.6 as I am hearing rumbles of a
5.7 or 5.6.1 point release to fix a regression. 5.6 is really a cleanup
release to enable mixbus 4 to be released real soon now.

Thank you for your effort in taking care of these things for us all.
