I have a newly built FC9 machine and would be willing to help test
this kernel. If you take me up on it you may want me to rebuild as I
have installed quite a few packages including those from livna but I'm
fine with that. It's a Compaq nc6220 with a Pentium M and 1.5 GB ram
and a Soundblaster NX USB soundcard. I haven't yet used ccrma but have
been using jack etc. for a while now. I should probably look up
whether I would add you to my repos.d or reinstall anyway. I've been a
regular Linux user since FC2 and started with RH5 or Turbolinux back
in the day...basically I'd love to help you test a FC9 install and
could keep the machine clean for bugreports. Thanks for your efforts
either way and I'll certainly be trying out planetccrma soon!
