Hi all, I have started publishing a few packages for Fedora Core 6. 

NO, you should not jump to Fedora Core 6 right now, no reason to :-)

There are currently _no_ low latency kernels yet, not reliable enough
but getting there - as usual thanks to Ingo and other kernel gurus for
their hard work! Just use the Fedora Core kernel for now and tweak the
limits.conf file to be able to run apps with realtime privileges[*]

Some of the Planet CCRMA packages have migrated to Fedora Extras, I'll
try to make a list of that sometime (Jack, Ardour, Rosegarden4 and many

To get started (if you want to try things) install this for i386 (all in
one line):

rpm -Uvh

or this for x86_64[**]:

rpm -Uvh

Surf here for packages available:

(you'll find snd-motif, snd-gtk, snd-utils, clm-sbcl, cmn-sbcl, etc,

It is a start...

[*] you need to (carefully) edit as root /etc/security/limits.conf and
add these lines if they are not already there:

---- cut here ----
# or (default) allow everyone access
*               -       rtprio          99
*               -       nice            -10
*               -       memlock         4000000
---- cut here ----

This will give any user permission to run apps with realtime scheduling
and to lock up to 4G of memory. 

[**] but there are things that don't work yet (AFAIK) in x86_64, for
example pd and friends, supercollider and who knows what else...
