Unfortunately the open-src nv driver has had a havyweight
display bug with some programs (e.g. rosegarden) on my system
Installing the closed-src nvidia driver was no fun, but
now it does the job, and openGl stuff is a lot faster...

where would I disable acpi? In the bios or in the kernel-config?

I have the UA-25 card too but also cannot get latencies lower than 16ms
(according to qjackctl)
(kernel 2.6.13, full rt-preemt, pam patched)
