[linux-audio-user] Low latency kernel on Mandrake

I thought that _ought_ to be the case but I was suspicious because of the 
/proc/sys/kernel/lowlatency thing and also because I get very noticeable 
audio dropouts when I do things like task-switch. jackd doesn't report xruns 
though.

Am I correct in thinking that if I start jackd as root I don't need to use -R 
or jackstart or anything to get good performance? At the moment I think I'm 
using jackd -d alsa -d hw:0 -p 512 (although that's in a script on my other 
PC so I might be mis-remembering).

Cheers.
