[PlanetCCRMA] low latency kernel - doesn't run on my machine but is it really necessary

Hi there,

I read Fernando Lopez-Lezcano's word about the kernel carefully in  
that the latest Fedora kernels are perhaps 'good enough'. I want to  
use pd for life performances so I think the optimized kernel should  
be better.
However it doesn't run on my machine. When the kernel starts there is  
an -unusual- page with tracing info etc and once the white progress  
line of Fedora 10 reaches the end the machine would sit there and not  
move any further.

My machine is a Sony Vaio Z series dual core machine, I was careful  
to install Fedora 10 for the i386 architecture. The audio interface  
is connected via the express32 card (RME multiface) - may the failure  
of the kernel be an issue of the hardware? Also, I'm not a computer  
specialist, I would have a real hard time to understand why the  
kernel doesn't run and then eventually fix it.
So of course, the question is, is it worth trying?
