To be clear: I will use the space behind the devices only to store the
cables that are connected to the devs... I don't even want to imagine
what a totally loose cable with two big XLR-jack will do to the
devices in a rough transport...
And I need the cables in the drawer to shock-protect the laptop :-)

Yeah, I totally ignored that part because it was so easy. My
distribution of choice is gentoo. I activated preemption and use the
realtime-lsm method to get realtime-rights. Otherwise almost all the
apps I use are straight from the (instable) gentoo tree. Only for
freebob I had to create my own ebuild so I can cleanly (un-)install in
Before I forget: the laptop is a amd64 (running in 64bit ;-) while my
home-pc is an intel P4. Both run equally stable. (ardour crashes after
stopping a recording if I save the session during the pre-roll...)

I can understand your situation. I tried to run my firepod on windows
last weekend. What a mess!
Wenn man mit Raubkopien Bands wie Brosis oder Britney Spears wirklich
verhindern könnte, würde ich mir noch heute einen Stapel Brenner und
einen Sack Rohlinge kaufen.
