    Before I take the plunge


    OK, I think I am going to do it... Just a couple more questions.

    1)I want low-latency and ability to read NTFS from my initial install. Can I do this from a new install or do I need patches afterward. Reading preliminary thru the handbook I did not see any mention of a low-latency install.

    2) What file system to use for a media laptop. I have used ext3 exclusively thus far. Maybe its the best? Anyone with any experiences with Reiser or others and music?

    Thanks for the help. I am getting anxious to try.

    Low-latency in which regard? Disk i/o, network latency, memory?
    The 2.6 kernel is capable of reading NTFS as well there is some, albeit buggy the last I heard, support for writing to it as well. When compiling your kernel add NTFS support.

    I guess low latencey with regard to i/o. I never realized there were other option. Specifically for how it pertains to audio latency.

    Does just installing jack bring about the low-latency in the kernel? Doesn't the kernel have to be compiled initially to support it
