Jack & Ardour updates

I use Patchage as well as Jack because I get confused with the names of interfaces, etc., used in jack setup and the connections diagram is easier to see and understand in Patchage.
True, I noticed the order of devices do indeed change after reboot. And, additionally, I have tried loading Jack both before or after loading Ardour. I use the connections diagrams of both Jack and Patchage to help me understand how it all relates to the mixers edit windows. I am hoping I will eventually get a grip on how to make all my connections thru the Ardour mixers windows so I don't end up having to do the same with Jack.

An update may help. I just don't know if Tim's advice would work with my version of Ubuntu or break it....
   "...I personally would recommend the kxstudio repos in launchpad. There you will get nearly newest packages.

Ardour is version 3.1 there and jack is version
They have packages for precise, quantal and raring.

Do you think an update will change your situation? I suspect a handling
error. We need more information.

Why are you using Jack, Patchage and Ardour, if you only want to record
and play music with Ardour? For this setup, Ardour does store and
restore all connections, you only need to start Jack and Ardour.

If you're using the "Audiobox USB interface" and an audio device from
your mobo should be enabled too, it might happen that after a reboot,
the order of the audio devices does change.

There are two ways to avoid this. You can disable your onboard device by
the BIOS settings or you edit a /etc/modprobe.d/alsa-base.conf

This example does show how to reserve hw:0 for a HDSP card and hw:1,
hw:2 for 2 Envy24 cards:

# ALSA module ordering
options snd slots=snd_hdspm,snd_ice1712,snd_ice1712
