so i extended the limits.conf file here now:
@audio - rtprio 99
@audio - memlock 500000
@audio - nice -10
@audio soft nolimit 4096
@audio hard nolimit 8192
but still there is that warning.
as i understood sampo, it is not bad at all, its only a warning about a
existing of an maximum of memlock. but in the never svn, i get now the
warning not only in the terminal, but there is an extra window appearing
before the ardourvst session opens.
