That link is useful. I've been trying to find out what the mm stood for.
And I have sound working now. As it turns out I think I needed to
compile in not only:
<*> EMU10K1 (SB Live! & Audigy, E-mu APS)
<*> (Creative) Ensoniq AudioPCI 1370
<*> (Creative) Ensoniq AudioPCI 1371/1373
Now I'm off to get jack running but I've had really bad form with that
and the 2.6
Q. With the 2.4 kernel, low-latency was seen to be working by going:
but now all I get is:
root at upstairs linux # cat /proc/sys/kernel/lowlatency
cat: /proc/sys/kernel/lowlatency: No such file or directory
How does the 2.6 use low-latency audio? Is it buried deep amongst the
features now, and working by default?
