Ubuntu 12.04. Pretty much stock. Oh, running xfce4 which should reduce
load as well ... but that's not the issue.

Yes, I think so. Not sure since pulse is such a bear to stop without
breaking other stuff :)

I think, and I'm not sure, that the big problem is figuring out device
names, etc. But, like I said, this jackd stuff just confuses the hell
out of me.

Is there a simple way, without loading audacity or whatever, just to
test this by getting some beeps out of the speakers, etc.?
