Hi Fero,

I don't know what's going wrong on your system, but I would start with a
correct limits.conf.

If this are defaults from a package of your distro, then drop this
disro. The nice value is "discussed" for years. If maintainers aren't
aware about it, who knows what mistakes else they made.

"@realtime   -  rtprio     99
@realtime   -  memlock    unlimited

Contrary to a lot of misinformation on the web, there is no reason to
include a line here that provides enhanced "niceness" control, which is
completely irrelevant for realtime scheduling and low latency audio
applications." - http://jackaudio.org/linux_rt_config


@audio   -  rtprio     99
@audio   -  memlock    unlimited
