My setup:

- Inspiron 6400 (Intel HDA card)
- fc5 stock kernel
- Ardour2 from svn
- jack from svn
- qjackctl from svn

When I started, I could not get low latency and had many xruns.

After consulting the web (and a particularly helpful friend), here is what finally fixed the problems:

1) start snd-hda-intel from modprobe.conf with the following sequence:

alias snd-card-0 snd-hda-intel
options snd-card-0 index=0
options snd-hda-intel index=0 position_fix=1

This signifies that there is no position fix

2) Without the position_fix argument, the "auto" option is implied

3) I didn't try the other options found through /sbin/modinfo snd-hda-intel (because I didn't understand what they meant and I was too lazy to find out).

Boy, Ardour2 is a nice looking project, Kudos!
