well... I found that some applications are a bit buggy. but i guess this 
is the applications and not the system itself. Also I cannot Jack to 
work with my RME Digi96/8 sound card. But I see this is the same with 
the 64Studio live cd so I guess it is a problem with the card 
configuration or jack.
