Trying to get rid of xruns.
Just to let you guys know, I'm pretty new in this audio/linux thing. I tried to go deep into searching about it before posting, but i felt like each person with xruns problems had a different thing going on on their machine, so I guess is time to ask directly for help. I was quite happy I was able to install a RT kernel and patch it for running my M-AUDIO FAST TRACK PRO at 24bits. If im not posting the right --infos you guys need for helping out, just tell me.
I'm using Gentoo running on a 2.6.33-rt kernel (got from pro-audio overlay) and patched as joegiampaoli.com/blog/?p=462 explains (only with a few gentooish mods, of course, and that may be part of the problem!). The point is, im getting xruns, and as I have read, thats not a good thing.
My qjackctl config (and some of the messages it shows): http://postimage.org/image/2ulons5s4/
As Joe Giampaoli recommends, my etc/security/limits.conf is as follows. He stated that the 'nice' thing wasn't necessary:
@audio - rtprio 99
@audio - memlock unlimited
Ive got a Core 2 Duo @ 2.10GHz, 4GB RAM, so I believe my machine isn't the problem.
