interesting, I use a Delta1010LT, and never saw something like this. Audacity 
isn't the most stable piece of software for me either, but the worst things
happening for me are crashes when changing the driver backend, or even when 
stopping transport sometimes.

If you refer to the new jacklab openSUSE-10.3 repo at ftp.gwdg.de, the 
kernel-source package there was made because Novell/SUSE didn't supplied one, 
and it is needed to build kernel modules (nvidia etc.). It exactly matches the 
standard openSUSE 10.3 kernel-rt package.

The 10.3 kernel-rt, recompiled for JAD with CONFIG_HZ=1000 can be found here: 
http://people.jacklab.net/appleonkel/RPMS/, 32 and 64 bit.

Alas, for this one there's no kernel-source package available, sorry.
