Now, it's realtime


 | I'd be interested to know how you get on with that kernel.

Alexandre Oliva <lxoliva at fsfla.org> builds the *libre kernels (without 
the Linux blobs)

Tapani Räikkönen <tapani.raikkonen at ilmainen.net> builds the Musix 
kernels from there. 

We are testing the *libre kernels. There are no problems with them, 
but, because Musix is a Live CD-DVD distro, we need aufs and we could 
not build the kernel using the realtime patches+aufs, for now.

Alexandre and Tapani are trying it, maybe Free could help, I dont 
know, maybe we all could work together.

This mailing list should be good?


We are not using squashfs for now, because knoppix does not use it 
(but in the short future, that's possible).

Well: that's possible, we use Debian ETCH for now, so all the kernel 
headers will work fine on ETCH. But we will move on the near future, 
I think.

Yes, there are some kernels from Musix that they/you can use

# Musix GNU+Linux (stable+backports) /etc/apt/sources.list
#deb ftp://musix.ourproject.org/pub/musix/deb/ ./

Also, Gilberto Borges included a function on the musixcontrol panel to 
make a realtime enabled Debian distro from any debian based distro.


 | Are you doing anything with Debian Lenny yet? 

No: just SID: testing SID to see what happens :), but we are not 
focused on SID for now, we are just happy with ETCH, backporting some 
packages (ardour and so), so it's not necessary to upgrade to lenny 
or sid for now

I did not knew that! that's odd!

Great! this web page is cool
