Selecting between jack versions

From ProAudioOverlay

Jump to: navigation, search

The overlay currently provides various versions of jack-audio-connection-kit.

We have

  • upstream stable 0.116.x from portage, with the addition of firewire support
  • snapshots of the upcoming jack2 as well as
  • live SVN ebuilds for both the ongoing jack1 and upcoming jack2.


Given you are running a Gentoo stable x86 system (x86, not ~x86), you can select the version you want by explicitly unmasking a certain version. If you are running amd64, just replace x86 with amd64 accordingly.
