I think you are looking for Planet CCRMA :


Planet CCRMA (CCRMA is pronounced ``karma'') at Home is a collection of
rpms (RPM stands for RedHat Package Manager) that you can add to a
computer running RedHat 7.3, 8.0, 9 or Fedora Core 1 to transform it
into an audio workstation with a low-latency kernel, current ALSA audio
drivers and a nice set of music, midi, audio and video applications. 

Have a lot of fun
