Well, that's a noble goal, but sometimes questionable ;)

I am doing so with ATrpms' setup. It enables access to PlanetCCRMA, as
well as freshrpms, newrpms, atrpms itself and half a dozen other repos
(depending of those repos supporting the distribution you wish to

I know I will keep ATrpms compatible to PlanetCCRMA, and there is no
reason for the other repos not to do so. Should you detect any anomaly
between two repos, please notify the pair or repo maintainers to fix it.

Speaking of which: Fernando and I would like to consolidate the
kernel efforts of PlanetCCRMA and ATrpms and could use a helping hand :)

I am quite sure the different added patchsets in PlanetCCRMA/ATrpms
are non-conflicting and complement each other nicely (CCRMA touches
capabilities and ll/preemt, ATrpms filesystems and v4l2). The main
work would be to get the CCRMA patches appliable onto a Red Hat
kernel (e.g. 2.4.22-1.2135.nptl). Any takers? :) :) :)

Hope you had a nice time until now and enjoy preparation for embarking
into the new year! :)
