GNOME has the same order of overhead that KDE has - too much. I
originally started out using fvwm2 but a number of people recommended
fluxbox and blackbox. After trying both I switched to blackbox (it was
pretty much a tossup). It's really easy to set up a menu for your audio
stuff. There are a few things I kill prior to doing any serious
recording even though I'm running blackbox. I take down:
service amd stop
service portmap stop
service nfs stop
service network stop
service lpd stop
service crond stop
service syslog stop
I just don't like anything interrupting while I'm recording ;-) Of
course I crank them back up when I'm finished (it's almost easier to
just reboot). The service command is available on RH/Fedora systems.
Prior to running Ardour you'll also want to kill autorun and artsd.
