Laptop setup roadmap
Hi all I want setup my laptop so it can be used as centerpiece in my live music performance using jack and renoise + other small jack clients. Now, I've been installing distros for a couple of month trying different audio-dedicated distros, and I've found that 64studio 2.1 has the best out-of-the-box performance. But its not perfect without some tweaking. I'm making this thread to gather some tips from 64studio users, helping me tweak my out-of-the-box setup, since i feel i'm not that far away from a good-enough setup. I basically have 2 issues after installing 2.1: 1. When moving the windows or doing other gfx-intensive work, my cpu is heavely used creating xruns. It looks like i'm NOT having any gfx-hardware support enabled out-of-the-box. My onboard gfx is intel 946 - its pretty well know i guess. 2. How do i cope with my onboard HDA Intel sound card. I like to use for wathcing youtube and stuff like that, but otherwize i dont need it. HDA intell is also pretty well know. This card cant be diabled in the bios. I'm using a ESI maya44 usb soundcard as my primary audio card. In general terms, how shoud i go about resolving issues with 1 and 2? Here is some specs: Medion Laptop, dual 1.5 GHz core, 2 gigs ram, intel 946 onboard gfx, HDA intel onboard sound, ESI maya 44 usb audio.
