JACK, Ardour and qsynergy
I recently tried to run synergy/qsynergy on my Linux DAW while running JACK and Ardour. I got a few xruns. When I quit qsynergy, the xruns ceased to be a problem. There was little difference in my system load with or without qsynergy.
I have a hardware KVM switch, but it would be nice to use synergy to move my mouse to/from my DAW and another Linux machine. Is there something about using a network service that causes JACK to hiccup? I read something once about killing network services to streamline a system for audio, but I figure that was old news and wouldn't apply to a late model configuration.
