Hi all,
I have indeed built a jackd2 without dbus support and this is the one I am

And 70secs didn't help either. I could auto login to my account and start
the audio scripts from xfce startup, but i would like to avoid login if I

I wonder how would they do it in other not so automated distros like Linux
from scratch or Slackware. Would in such distros ulimit be setable from
within rc.local and if so what is stopping it from being setable in Ubuntu
studio as well?

Please also note that I have another audio PC setup in much the same way
already - only diff is that that PC is a jack audio master server - and it
works with audio scripts starting with realtime priority from rc.local!
