Seems like you are doing the right things: lite-duty window manager [you
are using windowmaker, correct?], -rt flag, etc.
I don't have any such problems, and I am using Pd version 0.37.1 devel
with Fluxbox windowmanager under Gentoo on a laptop. I do notice that if
I have another app running that does something with the screen space
[the animations played in the Gkrellm2 system monitor, for example],
then I get periodic interruptions of sound. However, I can use grids,
sliders, and even open up subpatches and drag them around without fear
So what is the differences between my system and yours? It could have
something to do with PCI interrupts, I suppose. Where is your sound card
and where is your video card in regards to IRQ assignments? Are you on a
desktop or a laptop? What is your sound card and what is your video
card? Can you reassign IRQs in the BIOS, or failing that, try the
card-rearrangement-voodoo-dance? Low-latency and/or preemptive kernel
patches? Kernel version? Need...more...information.... ;-)
