No, nothing but a WM (fvwm 1; it's been working pretty well here for
almost 15 years :-))

I don't know if it matters, probably not, but I only use yum.

I only use it with jackd, and it's very stable. I often kill jackd
from under it (I have to, if I want to listen to music, because I
couldn't make PulseAudio work) and when I restart it, all I have to do
is goto Preferences->Audio System->Restart driver in Hydrogen. Much
better then audacity, which has to be restarted with jackd.

Same here.

DId you try to start Hydrogen from the command line? Just to see if it
produces any error messages?
