Hi Hartmut,

nice to know other openSuse users.
Which version are you on? Probably 12.1?

Had no luck with jack2 and pulseaudio on Ubuntu (that is probably due too
my disability to understand how to set it up correctly).

Best regards,
Moshe

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.

This made me somewhat puzzeled too until I tried the kernel desktop for Sus=
e to find out, that it delivers real good.

I have virtually the same results on the same machine. The only difference =
is, that the desktop-kernel is not the same as solid if Jack is set for ver=
y low latency (such as: lower than 5ms). For the reall-world day to day wor=
k with big Ardour-projects, I cannot find any difference regarding xruns.

Being more on the recording engineer side of things and not a Linux expert<=
br>
(user yes, expert no) I really fret at the thought of patching and
compiling my own kernel package.

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

My system:
Intel i7 950
Gigabyte motherboard
6 Gb ram
Rme HDSP 9652 audio interface

Appreciate your answers.

Moshe

P.S. I tried to use Ubuntu on the same machine I use openSuse 11.2 on and
got pretty bad results regarding latency and x runs on jack 2.

Ubuntu works OK for me here but is indeed not as solid and powerful as Suse=
s desktop-kernel. At the other hand I tend to use it anyway. There are more=
xruns but not too many (about 2-3/h under serious load), it is quite stabl=
e and forgiving(not a single case of jackd crashed or frozen) and the best:=
it is the most comfortable distro I ever had. Listening to youtube-videos =
or using any sound-source imaginable while Ardour is up and running whithou=
t even the need to think about how this happens is kind of nice methinks ;-=
