Real time kernel.

A quick question.

Is there a RT kernel option for F9 PPC?
Or is there likely to be in the future?

Alex.

You can just recompile your kernel to add realtime capabilities.

Well, I've never used PPC, but I'd assume that the same rules apply there

Why aren't RT kernels just made as another optional kernel
on the repositories?
We already have kernel-PAE, kernel-xen, kernel, kernel-debug
so why not have a kernel-rt ?

Then all you'd need to do is add the repository file to /etc/yum.repos.d
and do yum install kernel-rt* and you're done (doing * to get the
kernel-rt-headers, kernel-devel-rt...)

Now in the case of x86 Fedora 8 you can go to the Planet CCRMA repo and
get their RT kernel:
http://ccrma.stanford.edu/planetccrm...aneteight.html

but by looking below their repo URL
http://ccrma.stanford.edu/planetccrm...planetccrma/8/

I see that they don't have one for PPC

Ubuntu Studio comes with a RT kernel

While i appreciate the enthusiasm with which some of us seem to exude in the prospect of an RT kernel, i continue to be mindful and appreciative of the time,skill, and effort, talented devs put in on our behalf.

I ask only that those that could do this, consider it for the future. There seems to be quite a few musicians out in userland, both home and studio bound that would consider the opportunity to use an RT kernel, most interesting.
If someone does take this on, it would be appreciated if you could consider us PPC chaps as well. I use Ubuntustudio RT as part of my studio setup. and to have it on the G4 laptop as well would be most useful.

Alex.
