Well, hello, hello! ;-)
You just found a fellow gentoo user starting up with music on linux. There is
an ongoing thread in the gentoo forums ("Gentoo musicians" in the Gentoo Chat
forum) where we are figuring out some things and getting to know who is who.
I saw earlier today another post in the multimedia forum regarding Ardour.
Currently I am installing music software by hand on its own separate /opt
dir, to have more control (and not depend on when .ebuilds are released) so I
don't know of any specific troubles on the ebuild versions. So if you plan on
that list, drop a few lines there and get more people on it.
