I'm using 12.10 because of other issues in 12.04 (especially USB soundcard
requiring a higher kernel to run ok).
Over the past 2 years I am having this laptop, I haven't been able to get a
single stable version of Ubuntu for playing music:
- Soundcard not supported
- EHCI not supporting USB 2.0 soundcard
- XHCI not supporting USB 2.0 soundcard
- Compiz being too slow
- FGLRX creating xrun

Now I re-installed FGLRX and it runs ok, but I forgot about another bug in
the couple FGLRX and Compiz that makes my CPU go 100% (this issue was
already in 12.04)...
I have all these issues reported or fixed...

I know we have digressed from the original issue between with Ardour and
Ubuntu (conclusion here: it's an Ubuntu issue as installing FGLRX fixes the
problem),..
