>Hi folks, my machine just died so it's time to shop for a new one,
I have successfully had twin Firepods running on Ubuntu 9.04 with
the custom rt kernel. I was never able to have non-xrun recording
The only hardware that seems critical is the firewire chipset. The
TI chipset seems to work fine, other not so much.
I don't have an opinion on the cpu or mobo, have used both intel
and amd. (googling "don't use this particular model#" in this application
is always a good idea.)
I have not attempted 9.10 (either vanilla or Ubuntu Studio) I'm in
the middle of a big mastering job and don't have time to fool with
the "oh, well build this and tweak that stuff that always seems to
result when changing things.
