after some time of job-induced absence from audio work, i have tried to
bring my audio workstation up to date again.
the problem is that i can't get realtime privileges.
arch is x86_64, distro is opensuse 10.0, i'm using the distro kernel,
which is a 2.6.13 with additional patches.
@realtime - memlock 128000
@realtime - nice 10
@realtime - rtprio 70
the account i use is member of @realtime.
on login, i get
Jan 6 00:01:38 kleineronkel pam_limits: unknown limit item 'nice'
Jan 6 00:01:38 kleineronkel pam_limits: unknown limit item 'rtprio'
and jack tells me it can't get rt scheduling. memlock works, though.
i browsed the kernel source, and it looks like the rlimit patch is there.
pam is recent:
the bash is not yet rlimits-aware (ulimit does not know about nice and
rtprio), but that should not be a problem, right?
is there a /proc or /sys file associated with the rlimits patch, so that
i can make sure my running kernel has it? or any other command-line
tools that might help to find the problem?
any hints appreciated.
ps: i'm aware of the jacklab effort, but i don't want to use
realtime-lsm, and since this is a 64bit box, their packages don't buy me

if you are a free (as in "free speech") software developer
and you happen to be travelling near my home, drop me a line
and come round for a free (as in "free beer") beer. :-D
