Hi Gene :)

before it gets too confusing, I'll isolate the ASUS mobo audio and ASUS
mobo MIDI issue.

I got another reply off-list about the MIDI issue. Here it is, including
my answer:

something that might be OT, if this will become something for the list,
but for the moment I agree, that off-list seems to be the better choice.*

Hi :)

no, it has nothing to do with the problems for real-time kernels ex
2.6.26. I tested Suse 11.0 with the distro's real-time kernels, not with
the Jengelh once. Suse 11.0 at the moment is 2.6.25 and I tested 64
Studio 2.1 with the default real-time kernel 2.6.21 and a self compiled
real-time kernel 2.6.24.

I know that the ASUS M2N-SLI Delux has another chipset than my ASUS
M2A-VM HDMI, but because both mobos are relatively new, there might be
something in common.

MIDI applications crashes without any useful messages for my ASUS M2A-VM
HDMI with an AMD BE-2350 CPU using Suse 11.0, 64 Studio 2.1 default
(Etch) and 64 Studio 2.1 upgraded to Lenny. Another user has a Gigabyte
ga-p35-ds3l with an Intel q6600 CPU and the same problems, he now runs
Windows for MIDI work, but started with 64 Studio, Arch and Sidux, he
also tested different kernels. His mobo is fine with XP, Cubase SX and
Halion, 100% stable. I don't have any Windows install for my computer,
so I don't have any information about this.

For my mobo Linux is stable for any thing else, but MIDI applications,
resp. when I try to run MIDI applications, often their audio clients,
resp. JACK fails.

I still hope it will be possible to solve the problem. I have the latest
BIOS version for my mobo. Until now I only tested 64-bit distros and
never a 32-bit version.

What mobo, CPU and distro do you use?
