Name        : jack-audio-connection-kit
Product     : Fedora 17
Version     : 1.9.8
Release     : 8.fc17
URL         : http://www.jackaudio.org
Summary     : The Jack Audio Connection Kit
Description :
JACK is a low-latency audio server, written primarily for the Linux operating
system. It can connect a number of different applications to an audio device, as
well as allowing them to share audio between themselves. Its clients can run in
their own processes (i.e. as a normal application), or can they can run within a
JACK server (i.e. a "plugin").

JACK is different from other audio server efforts in that it has been designed
from the ground up to be suitable for professional audio work. This means that
it focuses on two key areas: synchronous execution of all clients, and low
latency operation.

Update Information:

- Compiled via -DJACK_32_64. This allows 32 bit clients to run on a 64 bit install.    
- Adjusted rtprio limit to 70 for the "jackuser" user group. Adjusted jack default priority to 60.

  [ 1 ] Bug #795094 - Adjust realtime priorities and rename /etc/security/limits.d/99-jack.conf
  [ 2 ] Bug #803865 - Jack needs to be compiled with --mixed option so that 32 bit clients can run in a 64 bit install

This update can be installed with the "yum" update program.  Use 
su -c 'yum update jack-audio-connection-kit' at the command line.
