I don't know if that will help. I put it on the desktop and start as
root. No terminal.

I never noticed a difference due to qjackctl.

Nope. It actually runs better with acceleration - at least on my

That may help but try killing autorun, syslogd, crond, and other
services first. I always kill syslogd while recording since every once
in a while it wants to write to disk and I'm not too concerned about
what it's doing while I'm recording. I restart them after I'm done
(start and stop scripts in qjackctl).
