I am using fedora core 2 but a recompiled version from linuxtant that has 
16k stacks - to \support the nvidia gfx drivers.  i dont really do sound
or midi, just pd/gem at the moment, but am having some trouble with file
formats and gem crashing pd and the system.

That's true, but I would suggest a more aggressive schedule, what is
missing in PlanetCCRMA's kernel? Support for v4l2/ivtv etc for
PlanetCCRMA's kernel can be found at ATrpms (check for
kernel-module-<foo>-2.4.26-1.ll.rhfc1.ccrma-* packages).

Do so, I don't think you will find anything missing.
