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