I wouldn't necessarily agree.  I've tried several versions of the NVidia 
driver on an RT patched SuSE kernel and the only time I gent XRUNs is if the 
screensaver kicks in when I'm recording.  I'm using a setting of 128 

I will shortly be upgrading to SUSE 10.2 and JackLab so my opinion might 
shortly change - I'll let you know.
