I guess he was referring to the kernel he built (without the
realtime-lsm). I'll clarify this point in the Planet CCRMA list...
I just booted into 2.6.10 + realtime-lsm, not bad at all in some very
informal jack tests (run jack at 2x128 + ardour + hydrogen + freqtweak).
I'll leave a full build chugging along all night long, should have fresh
packages to test/release tomorrow :-)
