Hi all,

Trying to get a stable Ardour setup on an HP ZD7001US notebook. All
is well when recording to the internal drive, however when recording
to an external firewire drive I'm getting a crackle in the audio
when the drive performs the writes. It looks like a short burst of
moderately low level single sample 'ticks' when zooming in on the
recorded track. Anyone have any suggestions?

I'm using a Planet install on FC1.
2.4.26-1.ll.rhfc1.ccrma kernel.
RME Digiface/Cardbus
Maxtor OneTouch firewire drive

Hoping to get more performance from the firewire drive than the
internal drive.
