Sun, 18 Dec 2005 18:47:14 -0800
Hi all... new experimental kernels just in time for the Holidays!
(whether it works in your case or not could mean a better or worse
Holiday break, so best luck in your testing!)
THe usual caveat applies, if it is not broken don't fix it. If you are
happy with the performance of your current FC4 kernel there's no need to
These kernels are now available on the Fedora Core 4 PlanetEdge
repository. For details on how to install them please see the online
What's new, in short:
- kernel 2.6.14-0.10.rrt:
based on 2.6.14 and Ingo's 2.6.14-rt22 realtime preemption patch
configured now with the PREEMPT_RT option (instead of the more
conservative PREEMPT_DESKTOP I had been using so far). Much better
latency behavior! (as usual only if it works on your hardware :-)
- alsa 1.0.10 final
- jackd 0.100.6-0.3.cvs. Includes a patch to not use the TSC by
default, TSC's don't work correctly on newer AMD dual core
processors and other cases (there is a new option in jackd to get the
old behavior back - details in the changelog).
[*] although I'm leaving on vacation in a couple of days so I don't
think I'd be able to fix much if something's broken :-( It is good to
know anyway what's going on...
