    For those who are trying this for the first time, please note that the
    scheduler has been tuned to tell the difference between tasks of the _same_
    nice level. This means do NOT renice X or it will make audio skip unless you
    also renice your audio application by the same amount. Lots of distributions
    have done this for the old 2.4 scheduler which could not treat equal "nice"
    levels as differently as the new scheduler does and 2.6 shouldn't need
    special treatment.

    So for testing note the following points:

    Make sure X is NOT reniced to -10 as many distributions are doing.
    Some shells spawn processes at nice +5 by default and this will make audio
    apps suffer.
    Make sure your hard disk, graphics card and audio card are performing at equal
    standard to your 2.4 kernel (ie dma is working, graphics is fully accelerated

    before commenting on audio performance.
