gentoo + jack + dbus = broken
Linux + gentoo + jack-audio-connection-kit + dbus use flag enabled = doesn't work any more.
Okay... Just a personal note to remember.
DO NOT COMPILE jack-audio-connection-kit WITH THE dbus FLAG ENABLED! IT REMOVES jackd WHICH IS WHAT qjackctl USES TO START THE JACK SERVER.
So... Unless I'm missing something, this is pretty much the status quo for me - because this has bitten me TWICE now. I want to upgrade JACK for my studio's DAW, and the dbus flag breaks qjackctl by removing the jackd binary.
So... Don't compile jack-audio-connection-kit with the dbus flag enabled.
(Why is that flag even there? Am I missing something?)
