I watched a youtube about setting up real time audio on ubuntu-

they recommended adding three commands in profile setup-

rtprio 99
memlock unlimited
nice -10

it was in a file called some thing like /etc/security/limits.conf

puppy doesn't have this file, but it is possible to use the nice command.

setting a negative nice means the program will hog the resource, which is
what you want your audio progs to do-

for example run jack with a negative nice

Code:
nice --10 qjackctl


is there any Puppy equivalent to

rtprio 99
memlock unlimited

these commands aren't recognised in the terminal

yep, I've heard Studio 3.3 is a good solution for many. However it doesn't handle pup save files in a standard way and Studio 4 is no longer community developed.

Cool

I personally prefer Puppy especially as this overheating HP laptop of mine keeps itself cooler with Puppy than with the factory installed Vista. Things change radically with a realtime kernel, so unfortunately I have to avoid using Puppy Studio no matter how works-out-of-the-box version it is...
