This reminded me about PCI tuning advice linked to the CCRMA webpage:
I had implemented the PCI latency setting for my soundcards only and had
forgotten to do it for my WLAN card. I added the " setpci -v -s 00:0b.0
latency_timer=ff" line to my rc.local to also increase the timer for my
WLAN card, and now my PC is rock solid! What a relief! I was already
despairing about the time required to do a thorough HW test.

Now I have wine and vstserver compiled and installed. I am trying to run
my B4 organ with vstserver and am getting a bit of trouble:

a) Wine configured my cdrom to be at /cdrom whereas in real life it
exists on /dev/cdrom and /mnt/cdrom. I created /cdrom and linked to it
and wine stopped whining about it.

b) I copied B4.dll to /usr/lib/vsts, which is my VST_PATH

When I start vstserver the following happens:

----------- clipeti clip ------------
[09:44 PM] localhost:~$ vstserver

VSTSERVER/main: Vstserver 0.3.1 started. Waiting for requests.
----> VSTSERVER/updatecache: Please wait. Updating cache.
         If nothing happens for 40 seconds, or the server is trying to
start the same plugin over and over again;
         press ctrl-c, and start vstserver once more.
VSTSERVER/main: Going to try to start vst plugin "B4fx.dll".
Could not stat /mnt/fd0 (No such file or directory), ignoring drive A:
fixme:dialog:MSGBOX_OnInit task modal msgbox ! Not modal yet.
-----------clip clip ----------
In addition a window pops up requesting me to insert the B4 CD for
authentication. When I insert the CD and press ok on the pop up window
it just pops up again and does not allow to start B4. The "fixme" line
repeats itself for every time I click OK.

Any clues how to make the B4 work with vstserver? I would like to play
my organ also in linux, as I no longer have windows on any machine.
