realtime kernel for Debian (was: Please Improve Debian for Multimedia Production)
Mmh this is interesting, cause there is an realtime kernel available in
the ubuntu hardy repo, but not in Debian yet. Would be nice if there was
one which users could install. But I'm not an rt-kernel expert at all,
so maybe I should forward this to some other people...
I want also to direct your attention to the kernel, as it has the
possibility to be more supportive of those specific needs, by having
low latency and real-time extensions patched and enabled. The debian
folks (especially "waldi" aka Bastien Blank will say some or all of
these are less stable than they could be -- perhaps googling around or
asking him when he's not so busy will drum up some details.)
But I think it's good to have some discussion about a realtime kernel
for Debian on the Debian-dev list...
Looking forward to your opinions on this.
