OK, will do.

If I remember correctly this also included a PAM patch: does it still?
I will investigate.

How does one control the IRQ number of the device? I thought this was
determined by the hardware.
Can you point me to a URL so that I might learn more? (I dont really
know what terms to search for)

I was using a modified jack.spec file from the CVS distro of jack. I
will change my version but perhaps I should suguest this change to the
jack people as well?

It does very much! I didnt really realize that the LSM module ran on top
of the rt patch!
Does your kernel have Default linux capabilities enabled? I cannot
remember if this is supposed to be on or off with the LSM module...
Thanks for the help Mark!
