[ubuntu-studio-devel] Installation of 19.10 Studio

I installed 19.10 on my admittedly idiosyncratic system, Supermicro 
X7DAE/dual Xeon quad core/3ware 9750/AMD Radeon 5000 video.  19.10 with 
the low-latency kernel is not usable on this system.

The slowdown does not appear when booting off the DVD, just after 
installation.  However, the slowdown becomes apparent when the 
installation tried to access the RAID 1 array on the 3ware 9750 card.  I 
noted some errors that emerged when I tried to install using the safer 
video option that indicated that the installation was having problems 
with the 3ware card.  That attempt failed when "partman" crashed.

I'm running Xubuntu 19.04 on the same hardware (different RAID 1 array, 
dual 2TB Seagate Constellation instead  of dual 1.5 TB Seagate Barracuda 
drives) without issues.

I don't expect anyone to try to address these problems since I doubt 
anyone else will run into them.

The boot options allow for booting two different versions with the 
low-latency options; I will later try to install the standard kernel and 
see what happens with that.

I am using Studio on a Dell i5 laptop and an HP i7 laptop without 
problems (older versions),  thank you.
