Thanks. First of all, which version of Fedora and architecture are you 
running? Without that bit of information it is more difficult to attempt 
to answer questions...

Ffado is part of Fedora now, maybe the maintainer is on this list? 
Otherwise I would suggest filing a bug report with a request for its 
inclusion in RedHat's bugzilla.

Yes, we would need more details (was it a "relabel"?)

A patched version of the rpmfusion akmod nvidia package for rt kernels 
is available for fc14. It does trigger some errors with the rt kernel 
but AFAICT with no side effect ("yum install akmod-nvidia", the driver 
will be recompiled for your kernel when you reboot). I'm about to 
upgrade it to the latest. I'll try to build for fc15 later today - but 
Fedora 15 + rt + systemd does not work, and using upstart instead 
apparently does not work for everyone (I have not gotten any detailed 
reports on why it fails yet).
