Hmmm, I'll look at my build logs. A bit later I built for fc17 and ended 
up releasing it into the planetcore-testing repository - I had to change 
the spec file slightly for the fc17 build for I forget the details.

Same here. This one looks very very good. I have been running a test for 
a couple of days, jack + jack-mamba + several convolvers and other stuff 
just to load the machine (@ 128 x 8, 48KHz) and no xruns so far. In all 
previous rt kernels I would get one every once in a while.
