Memory locking is unlimited - this is dangerous. You should probably alter the line:
@audio - memlock unlimited
in your /etc/limits.conf to read:
@audio - memlock 1540092

can someoneplease please tell medo i need to do this and if so how?

Ardour likes lots of memory. I am reasonably certain you can ignore that warning message. Otherwise check the file /etc/security/limits or perhaps /etc/security/limits.d/audio
and change the line unlimited to a number that is less than the amount of physical ram in the system.

how do i find out how much ram?and how do i change that file?

I wouldn't touch it unless I saw a performance drop and free -m showed heavy swap use: http://www.frontlinemedia.org.au/node/54
How do you edit a file with root permissions?

gksu gedit <file(s)>

The warning is there in case you don't have enough virtual memory to do a certain task, which is a possibility on low/mid-range systems. How much RAM and swap do you have? In other words:

free -m

So you have 2GB of RAM and your system doesn't use a whole lot on its own. That's fine.

Ok thank you i appreciate it,so it doesnt matter if their are at least 2 files that have that configuration about unlimited memory or watever?
Also i have serious runs.....x-runs...thats a terrible joke...could ya give me somehints there
