Like I said, Audacity will support JACK as soon as Dominic and Co.
move to Portaudio v19 to be sure Audacity will run equally nicely on
all supported platforms. Let me quote Dominic:
"PortAudio v19 supports switching between multiple interfaces at
runtime. It will attempt to automatically detect which one is
running, so if you're running jackd, it will use jack, if not it
will look for ALSA, and if that's not there, it will default to
So people who are still using OSS (including me, on my RedHat 7.1
partition) won't even notice."
