Well, if you could get clam to build... ;-)

I have not tried them, but I don't see any reason they should not
work. Well, except the remaining bugs in the -rt patch, but if it
works on fc6, it should work on centos5 too.

Fernando has rebuilt planetcore for centos5 a few weeks back, see
<http://ccrma.stanford.edu/planetccrma/mirror/centos/linux/planetcore/5/>. You
might want to start with this, and maybe upgrade the kernel later on.

As far as I can tell it is standalone, and it should work with centos
extras. I have not tested any other combination.
