Hi all, especially you audio software submitters,

there is some software on slackbuilds like
rosegarden, pd or ardour that is often used
together with a realtime patched linux kernel.
Do you audio guys use such a kernel to avoid
audio dropouts? How did you configure your
slackware box for these softwares, or didn't
you change any of the default settings? Long
time i was using fedora and planet ccrma for
my audio software, but now switched back
to slackware again and i can't achieve the same
results. Most of the software i use produces
audio dropouts on slackware with default settings
and i have no idea how to tweak it. I didn't want
to use a patched kernel and i guess somehow
it should work without, because i saw a guy
(dan wilcox alias robotcowboy) using pd with an
unpatched linux kernel and he managed to configure
his system in a way that allowed him to use audio
software without dropouts (he didn't run them
as superuser). Any ideas?
