Re: Tuning out Xruns, cgroups usage advice

Tried all of the above suggestions with no luck. However, I do notice a slightly lower CPU load when using the mitigations suggestion. It can stay. I only ever network this machine via a temporary connection to install updates. I've also dropped the cgroups stuff. I may come back to it as a way to s...

Re: Tuning out Xruns, cgroups usage advice

If I understand correctly hardware that worked well in 2014 with KX Studio now doesn't perform as well as it used to using an up-to-date distro. The question is then : what is different? Put far more politely than I've been doing of late. ;) KX Studio had some KDE tweaks. baloo , the KDE file index...

Re: Tuning out Xruns, cgroups usage advice

I've i5 as well, and what helps me to avoid Xruns is the following addition to my usual boot parameters: intel_pstate=disable processor.max_cstate=1 intel_idle.max_cstate=0 idle=poll Note, that this may lead to heating problems on Laptops, while it is save on Desktops. Will give that a go. Although...

Re: Tuning out Xruns, cgroups usage advice

[...] the compositor or visual effects had little to no performance impact on my systems (except that using a compositor always helped avoid screen tear, which I consider very beneficial). The distros that stood out as performing somewhat worse had KDE Plasma installed. Yup. I expect a performance ...

Tuning out Xruns, cgroups usage advice

I first put this i5 system with two Edirol DA2496 cards together back in 2014. I eventually ended up using KXStudio on it, and had it happily recording at 96kHz with a low-enough-for-live latency. It hasn't seen much use like that recently, and spent about a year switched off. Acquiring a 10U flight...

That doesn't look like a forum, it looks like a chat room and wants to be yet another thing I'd have to register for.

Re: No more sound after update, probably related to PulseAudio

It's apparent you've got JACK and ALSA installed and working, but what about PulseAudio? I'm assuming installed, but perhaps not all the relevant bits. Can you install and try to start pavucontrol ? If you get " Establishing connection to PulseAudio. Please wait... " Pulseaudio definitely ...

Re: KXStudio project is currently on a break

Just a small note, Neon team does not recommend using apt for updating - https://blog.neon.kde.org/index.php/2017/06/16/how-do-i-to-update-to-the-latest-software/ pkcon refresh pkcon update I'd noticed that. Which is where I'm expecting this to start getting brittle. Running the above currently say...

Re: KXStudio project is currently on a break

When I first saw the break message, I was a little worried. I've run through just about every audio distro I've come across. I settled on KXStudio quite some time ago. I'm even quite comfortable installing it for non-technical folk - usually musicians - who don't need to, or can't afford to, get int...
