Hi. I'm wondering how good the new 2.6 kernel is at recording live
audio. I managed to get my 2.4 kernel with Andrew Morton low latency
patch to record without any of those troublesome xruns but when I tried
using the stable 2.6 I get more more problems than I ever did when I was
first experimenting with the 2.4 (and that wasn't pretty)
I intend to use my box mainly for recording live audio and editing in
rezound and ardour. I used the instructions from
finally get the 2.4 kernel to work properly but have had no luck with
Essentially, jack coughs up LOTS of xruns when using ardour and often
jack will shut ardour down or the whole computer will freeze (even the
mouse won't move)
Another problem I've noticed is that seeing alsa is now built in, how am
I to get the midi keyboard to work? In the 2.4 I used #modprobe snd-seq
(because it can't be added to /etc/modules.autoload) but in the 2.6 alsa
is built in and the midi keyboard doesn't work by default.
I notcied there is an Andrew Morton version of the 2.6 at
http://www.kernel.org/patchtypes/mm.html Should I be using those? and
what does mm stand for anyway?
Is there anything else besides what's mentioned in that above howto that
I should be aware of?
