Package: jackd
Version: 0.118+svn3796-2
Severity: normal

The following message appears when starting jackd:

Memory locking is unlimited - this is dangerous. You should probably alter the 
     @audio   -  memlock    unlimited
in your /etc/limits.conf to read:
     @audio   -  memlock    3046545

I seem not to have such a file installed. Instead debconf has created
/etc/security/limits.d/audio.conf which contains the given line.
If it wasn't for the fact that my changes there may get lost on the
next update, I would suggest to just fix the notification message.
Where am I supposed to change this setting?

Second, if it is dangerous jackd shouldn't be configured by default
with unlimited memory locking in the first place.

Best regards,

The fix for this bug has already been included in recent uploads. As
outlined in the bug history, memory locking still defaults to unlimited
to prevent ardour from complaining, but the user can manually override
the value if he wants to.

I'm closing this bug now.
