Hi Raffaele,

thanks for the reply!

My needs would be:
Mainly tracking (by now up to 8 channels at given time).
Mixing and monitoring - Yep
Realtime fx - also yes.

Tried AVlinux and found it to be pretty cool, but its 32 bit and till now
I'm used to 64 bit and wouldlike to keep using the more advanced PC
technology. (Finally when Protools 11 takes the leap into 64bit technology
it would be sad to see my Linux system going backwards).

Heard good things about Arch in audio use too. Anyone got experience with
Arch use for pro audio?

Hi everyone,after many years of studio work using =
the openSuse distro with the kernel-rt from Jan Engelhard it seems that he =
no longer continues his great work on rt kernels.Being more on the reco=
rding engineer side of things and not a Linux expert (user yes, expert no) =
I really fret at the thought of patching and compiling my own kernel packag=
e.

I would like to hear your opinions on what distro is so=
lid for audio work and has a reliable rt kernel.Also I would app=
reciate if you could explain the degree of difficulty and learning curve of=
the specific distro.

debian lover since 2005 here :-) rock =
solidI won't try to explain debian learning curve because of to=
o many if/then sentences to work with :-) A lot of work has been do=
ne since 2005 and actually AFAIK the features offered by the rt patch are b=
eing merged in the kernel mainline little by little and actually I can say =
that a debian stock kernel is really near the rt one... depending on your n=
eeds (record? mixing? both? + monitoring? + realtime fx? and how many track=
s?...).

BTW, there are several multimedia distros around and they do not requir=
e you to do tricky things on your system and some are debian based (eg. AV =
linux).=A0

P.S. I tried to use Ubuntu on the same machine I use openS=
use 11.2 on and got pretty bad results regarding latency and x runs on jack=
2.Don't know about openSuse but Ubun=
tu is debian with lipstick and makeup... too much IMHO :-)

regards-r-- =
L'unica speranza di catarsi, ammesso che ne esista u=
na,
resta affidata all'istinto di ribellione, alla rivolta non isterilita
in progetti, alla protesta violenta e viscerale.
