Download this patch:


and follow instructions inside the README. You may need to recompile the 
kernel if you don't have this settings :


Otherwise, just do 'make && make install'.

Then add your own user to the 'audio' group in /etc/group.

Then make the REALTIME module loaded at startup with:

MODPROBE gid='the gid of the audio group in your distro'
