Hi all,
I was wondering if anyone knew what the most stable setup (Ubuntu
Studio version, Jack'd version, Ardour version) would be for using
primarily Ardour.
I have been recording large sessions (30-40 tracks) for about 3 months
with Studio 10.04 and the 2.6.31-9 rt kernel and have been having
issue's with ardour and jackd crashing what seems like randomly. I
haven't been able to reproduce it. It doesn't matter if it is a giant
session or a small session I will get a segmentation fault anywhere
between 10 minutes to 4 hours. Sometimes several in a row and
sometimes not at all for an entire 5 hour recording session. I am
using 2 mackie onyx 1640's via onboard firewire on a Dell studio
(desktop) with a 2.33 Ghz quad core and 6 gig's of DDR2. Also an
Nvidia 9800 GTX. I'm just not sure where to go to fix my stability
problems. I don't know if it is my firewire chipset or the drivers I'm
using. I read somewhere that using nvidia drivers could cause the
problems. Maybe my harddrives are to slow? I am willing to go to a
barebones install if need be. I don't need the install to do anything
but record in ardour and master in jammin. It just looks really bad
when I am recording a band and I have to tell them to hold on while I
restart ardour or the computer. Any help would be greatly appreciated!
Thank you!
Tommy

check your firewire chipset, and also run in a terminal
cat /proc/interrupts
and see what devices are sharing IRQ settings...*

i have ubuntu 10.04 and i have started using the KXstudio ppa's with it... however, even before that, with your same sofware setup, and a P4 with a gig of ram, i had a very stable firewire rig using a texas instruments chipset, and a presonus firepod... i have a faster machine now, but still, its running 10.04 and with any kernel, its stable... check on those couple things, and lets go from there

you see the line ehci_hcd:usb1, uhci_hcd:usb8, ohci1394, thats not ideal.. that means that your firewire device is shared with 2 other USB ports... you should look in the bios and see if you can change that, and also, run lspci and see what firewire chipset you have...*

The bios doesn't give me any options to change it., lspci gave me :
JMicron Technology Corp. IEEE 1394 Host Controller, Kernel driver in
use: ohci1394 Kernel modules: firewire-ohci, ohci1394
Is there a way to adjust irq settings to something that would work better?

if i were you, i would probably just get a nice TI chipset in a pci or express card and solve the IRQ port issue and the chipset all in one go...*

Sharing IRQs is super-bad, but even having unneeded IRQs isn't ideal,
e.g. do you need the crappy HDA intel device?

Regarding to the shared IRQs, I for example avoid to use to much USB
devices, by using a PS/2 mouse and keyboard.

You should try hpet, tickless timer, because IRQ handling will become
better:

$ sudo chgrp audio /dev/hpet
$ sudo chmod g+rw /dev/hpet
$ sudo modprobe snd-hrtimer
$ jackd --help
[ --clocksource OR -c [ c(ycle) | h(pet) | s(ystem) ]

Thank you, I am going to order a Syba firewire card with a TI chipset,
I tried hpet but when I typed in sudo modprobe snd-hrtime
I got FATAL: Module snd_hrtime not found., How would I go about
getting that module?

It has to be enabled by the kernel configuration and your motherboard
must provide the high resolution timers.

$ cat config-$(uname -r) | grep CONFIG_HPET_TIMER
CONFIG_HPET_TIMER=y

If it isn't enabled you need to enable some additional entries for hpet,
the easiest way to do this, is to copy the generic's config, when
building the kernel rt and just change the rt settings.

Pardon, you need to be in the correct path ;)

$ cat /boot/config-$(uname -r) | grep CONFIG_HPET_TIMER
CONFIG_HPET_TIMER=y
