Hi Don,

I don't have an answer as I have not tried to install in a Secure Boot 
environment. But...

There is a caveat I should point out with regards to Planet CCRMA. The 
rt patched kernel that lives in my repositories is _not_ signed (it 
can't be as I don't have the keys, only Fedora does). So you will not be 
able to boot into it with Secure Boot enabled. At least that is my 
understanding (you should be able to disable Secure Boot somewhere in 
your BIOS configuration).

Let the fun begin...
