[KERNEL] 2.6 preempt no smooth audio?
successfully working on a 2.4.2x i switched to 2.6
in need of the acpi features to put the libretto to
memsuspend. however, i can't get unbroken play
-back (file or stream) anymore.
disabling 2.6 preempt on makes it bit better, but don't
reach the behavior of a preempt & lowlat'd 2.4.2x.
sound scratches are mainly when switching through
workspaces (lot of drawing/cpu). 2.4 is all right.

the complete system hardware is quite exotic; the lspci output
is scary, so are the dmesg-error messages from acpi (but, iirc,
harmless and with 2.4 also). ide-dma and changing pci latency
timers don't work. [plug'n'pray/acpi]toshiba controller & yenta
compatible pcmcia/pccard controller..
isn't preempt involved in trying to get the system more responsible
and to work with audio/video/media more comfortable?
if i'd like to switch back: is there a backport from the current (2.6)
acpi subsystem for 2.4-kernel's avail?
now, 2.4 *is* fast / responsive! what do do?
