Hi Fernando,

I was using the rt kernel as documented in your steps for fc6.  I did
a search for the error message that I had received and found this post
from the mailing list.


It did make me aware of what the problem was, but the user in that
case ended up moving back to fc6.  Unfortunately for me that is a very
undesirable path, unless somehow I can get my SGI 1600sw monitor to
work in dual display. (good luck!)  I'm not a linux guru, but I have
messed around with xorg.conf enough to know that I don't want to go
there again if I don't have to.

I would really like to be able to use ccrma to help pull me away from
my mac.  I guess firewire might not be top priority, but if I recall
correctly Freebob recommends ccrma as the distro to use, so it will be
great to hear if there is a solution to this.  Maybe I should talk to
them about it :)

I do appreciate all your hard work. :)
