Hi all,

I've started my tests on ubuntu studio karmic.

To remain, i'm using a laptop 64 bits with UBS 64 hardy 8.04 for 
production and UBS jaunty 9.04 32 bits for testing.

I've erased jaunty to do a clear install of karmic 32 bits, with the 
ubuntu 9.10 live disk. Everything 's ok.
After a short upgrade, i've installed the 461 ubuntustudio packages, 
install takes 15 minutes, and everything is ok.

After adding my account to video and audio groups, enabled 
raw1394/menlock with UBS controls, i've rebooted.

So under RT karmic kernel, the system works fine. I've launch jackd with 
the bad internal sound card, my latency is 5,3ms, the system is stable, 
i've launch hydrogen to play a demo, while i was reccording in ardour at 
the same, and everything works perfectly. All my tests were done with 
ati 3D driver on, compiz activated.

Cinelerra, kdenlive kino are working fine, the only trouble i've notice 
is that the kino package doesn't support the french language, the *.mo 
file means to left, which is surprising...

Congratulations for the work.
