 I do not remember saying that.  I have my /home folder backed up to an
external drive.  I am not sure about how to use it in a new system.

I have since made room for a clean install of the 64-bit version (goodbye 64
Studio and Musix) and have successfully installed it. I kept the old
installation and I can boot both of them. Now suddenly the Ardour sessions
on my Firewire audio drive don't open because I don't have the right
permissions; efforts to change permissions, using the file browser a root,
have been unsuccessful. My next step is to attempt it with command line
tools, but I haven't gotten to it yet. Strangely, my old install also can't
open them, with exactly the same errors, even though I did the original
recordings with it.  I tested some just before installing the new
system--they worked (through the cruddy onboard sound), now they don't.

A Rosegarden session on the same drive loads fine; I didn't try recording

Other than not accessing most of my previous Ardour sessions, the new
install works much better.  I can see my MIDI keyboard in JACK's ALSA tab,
which I couldn't before.  I haven't gotten around to installing sound fonts
to check out Q-synth yet.

LOL I am *very* familiar with that thread.   I think we have met there; I
post as Aurora on Ubuntu forums.  My first post on that thread was a year

The device works out-of-the-box with Hardy.  I haven't really tested it on
this box, but on the MacBook I have recorded some MIDI with Rosegarden, just
as a test. There are still realtime issues I have to fix before it is
