ElQuia I don't know if it's a good idea to run a program as root.
Yep, I know. I was just trying to diagnose the thing ....
All OS's are like a work-in-progress. No matter how much one learns there's always more to learn.
And thats a truth if I ever heard one
I tried 64 studio also, in matter of fact I have it installed in a VM, but mmmmmm, I don´t like it....
The thing is I love Mint, it´s ease of use, it´s community, the interface, the sheer QUALITY of the work, obviously there are things that can be better, but as you say: all oses have that. Ask win users
I´m trying out ubuntu, with the complete ubuntu studio package on top ... but ... it´s second best.
I´m going to wait for the final release of 64bit Mint, do a complete install, then (previous backups, always backups) do some tests with audio. Maybe the standard kernel works OK ... I don´t do audio production in the composing sense, I record audio from external sources and do some mastering and editing. Ill do the same tests on ubustu and after that I´ll try with rt kernel on x64 Mint, and see what happens.
Meantime, I´m using Mint for customers who want to migrate to Linux, (Main ed), and mint xfce for some older machines.
Thanks for all
