First, I must say the RT kernel is basically untested as I don't use
it myself on production machines. All I can tell is that it boots on
my test box.

Do you have any error messages in the system log? What happens when
you "service haldaemon start" after the machine has finished booting?

I am unfamiliar with kernel packaging in the planet but I think the
packages in the planet repo are based on Red Hat's MRG project
(http://www.redhat.com/mrg/); at least I know Fernando has built some
kernel versions with the MRG kernel as a base. It might be worth
- if Red Hat have released a newer version
- if CentOS/SciLinux/whoever are intending to rebuild MRG

I will have a closer look when I get back to work, but don't expect
anything before the middle of next week.

Thanks for the report, I will rebuild an updated package as soon as I
