64studio 3.0 x86 Beta3. First impressions
Hi! I've installed 64studio 3.0 686 Beta in a spare partition. So far I've done: sudo apt-get udate sudo-apt-get upgrade start jack and setup to 96.000 kHz and 16 frames/period. For the rest, the default setup (latency 0,333 ms) (for testing purposes only). My hardware: $lspci | grep -i audio 05:01.0 Multimedia audio controller: VIA Technologies Inc. ICE1712 [Envy24] PCI Multi-Channel I/O Controller (rev 02) #m-audio 2496 $lspci | grep -i vga 01:00.0 VGA compatible controller: nVidia Corporation GeForce 8400 GS (rev a1) $cat /proc/cpuinfo | grep name model name : Intel(R) Core(TM)2 CPU 6420 @ 2.13GHz model name : Intel(R) Core(TM)2 CPU 6420 @ 2.13GHz RAM: 2 GB I suppose maintainers already know all of these little issues and I hope tweaks are on the way. Sound systems are not disabled (I don't know if it's related or not but I suppose so) and from time I hear a noise from the speakers when I have jack (and only jack) running. The good side is that I have had only one xrun in more than ten minutes with -p16 -r96000. I like that timidity is installed by default because it makes 64studio more user friendly but I think it deserves a FAQ entry that more experienced users prefer alternatives that are not hidden and are easier to control. I chose spanish for the installer, the installer doesn't download full language support. Worse is the fact that there is no language support in System -> Administration. This a done by installing one package called "language-selector". Then, when you choose your language it installs all the packages you need to have a (for gnome at least) full support.
