Oooh snap!

Here's an updated list of the possible official recommendations for
discussion:

- A distribution should attempt to run jack as the default audio server
and should attempt to make the process pf starting jack easy for a non
technical user.
- Pulseaudio should attempt to connect to jack by default and fall back
to the alsa layer if jack is not running.
- Closed source binaries such as those provided by companies like Adobe,
Skype and Real Networks should provide flexibility for changing the
audio library path and not be hardcoded to /usr/lib/
- For 32 Bit systems with memory of more than 8GB we recommend enabling
CONFIG_X86_PAE in the kernel
- For a 64 bit desktop system please ensure the 32 bit libraries for
alsa, jack and pulseaudio are installed by default.

cheers.

If aeolus is small that is good. Because that leaves more memory to cache
the samples (outside of aeolus itself).

The 120 MB includes all precomputed wavetables, and they
are loaded permanently in memory. There is nothing else to
be cached.

Ah, okay. So aeolus was a bad example...
