happy to know that. what EEE model is it?

I have an EEE also (700 family), without an RT kernel, but with rtprio
capabilities set in limits.conf for jackd. The main issue to me is that,
as i extensively use the audio INPUT, i get a lot of periodic audible
overrrun with ALSA for INPUT audio with the in-board soundcard. This is
not a cpu usage issue, though.

What surprised me was that using jackd over OSS layer did work for audio
input, without audible overrun. I wonder why then, using the ALSA api
does not work as well.

The only solution i have for ALSA currently is to use an external usb
cheap interface.

So, i may compile an RT kernel to see if that fixes my issues.
