I'm not surprised myself that distro's doesn't support it yet. It looks
like the LA community is searching for ways to handle the situation now.
Package maintainers will pick up the results of the discussion and
solutions after. Don't forget they also have to deal with Jack1 and Jack2.
So first, LADI is not that mature atm, all though progressing quickly
now. Qjackctl doesn't work well with jackdbus atm. It's the question (at
least for me) what jackdbus means for the use of Ardour. It's still a
question about the best approach by distro's. Only jackd, only jackdbus
or both mixed?
When qjackctl can handle jackdbus in a satisfying way, and when it's
clear what a good approach is, jackd, jackdbus or both... then it would
be more easy to decide what and how to implement. Maybe you see it in
the 2010 distro releases, who knows.
Till then, the best way imo, is to have different repo's with jackdbus
and ladish packages, which people who want to test or use Ladish, can
use. You might want to contact Nedko about how to package this stuff (I
think he made some packages for Ubuntu 8.04 a while ago).
