No time here either. Regretfully Fedora will keep forging ahead no
matter what. We don't/will not have a say in that.

I know, I know. It is ridiculous, but well, we do what we can. Hopefully
fc10 will start in better shape re: Planet CCRMA. The main problem in
fc9 has been the rt patched kernel, it lags too far behind the main
releases (I had to waste, ahem, invest, a lot of time these past two
weeks on it - and I think it is not there yet, I think I detected
problems in the internal alsa seq timer). And the fact that _something_
in fc9's xorg does not like kernels < 2.6.26, otherwise 2.6.24.x would
have been perfect[*]. 

Another problem was that we just transitioned to 9 here at CCRMA, not
for lack of trying... There's only so many hours in a day. Hopefully we
will migrate to 10 sooner than later.

Ha ha ha... welcome to the club... :-)

[*] if you look at the rt patch online you'll see that 2.6.24 and 2.6.26
versions are both still there, 24 is more stable, 26 is (probably) not.
I imagine due to the fact that RedHat's MRG system ships with 24.
