I'm getting a lot of xruns in jack--about one every .5 seconds. I have been told that this is a very computer specific problem that could have a lot of causes. Is there anyone here who could advise me on this?

When I start jack from terminal, nothing too startling comes up. But there might be some other diagnostic that someone can help with.
