re all,

i just thought i'd say hello :) i'm following this list of course,
good that it exists.

and let me add for the record:

dyne:bolic GNU/Linux 2.x is using a real-time kernel that many people
reported to work well with jack applications: it is the (missed,
alas!) Con Kolivas (-ck) patchset for desktop against linux (in d:b
2.5.2 that is 2.6.18-ck3)

IMHO Con is definitely a big loss in the development sphere: he
abandoned the scene as he was mistreated by other kernel developers
and Linus himself. real pity. his contributions are amazing
(esp. the prefetch approach for desktop) and his -rt series have been
powering dyne:II releases for long time.

regarding the status of future kernel releases, as dyne:bolic is a
100% free GNU/Linux distribution we'll follow the kernel-libre branch
(now mantained by Alexandre Oliva) in any future release, as it is a
truly free redistribution of the Linux kernel.

Alexandre's releases are frequent and well compatible with -rt
patchsets, as Jeff Moe is packing a linux-libre-rt kernel we already
use in our new FREEEEE distribution for EEEPC computers
http://freeeee.org

results are quite satisfying, still some corners to be smoothed, but
well jack is the default audio daemon for our distro and it runs well
without xruns. i've been performing myself using Jack and FFTW3 on my
EEEPC 701 with FreeJ and Fluxus scripts with very good results.

ciao
