   Glad you got your disk drives into better shape.

   How are you running Jack? I think the easiest way to get lots of
xruns is to run jack with low latency. I have run on both 2.4 and 2.6
kernels for hours without any xruns when running with large latency.
This is normally OK for unmonitored recording, such as a group that
won't be listenign to the recorded audio in real time.

   Set latency very high in QJackCtl and see what happens.

   There can be other causes, such as interrupt settings, etc. Make
sure you are not using a USB mouse and unplug your network cable and
test again.

good luck,
