Apart from the apps I've already mentioned, the only other Linux audio
software I've used on my Panda so far are alsamixer, pactl, pavucontrol and
Audacity - all of those have worked just as you'd expect them too.

I'm using standard jack and qjackctl from the 12.04 repos but I've had to
compile LV2/ drobilla libs, qtractor and Noisemaker myself. LV2 and
qtractor were straightforward but I had to modify the makefiles to get JUCE
and Noisemaker to compile under armhf. I dunno how much use qtractor and
noisemaker make or SSE but thats one thing both apps lack when built for
ARM CPUs. When I get better at C++ I'd like to have a go at adding NEON
support to Noisemaker.

There aren't many terminal-only Linux audio apps I make regular use of. I'd
be interested in trying NAMA on my pandaboard but thats no fun without a
mic input which is something I don't quite have yet on my panda- I have
achieved limited success using its onboard one with arecord and my external
USB soundcard is playback only.

I think secureboot is strictly a Wintel thing - I have heard no such talk
of it making its restrictive, nefarious ways known in ARM land yet and lets
hope it stays that way! Note that the ARM devices have their own set of
bootloaders - no grub here.
