I have always given access to realtime scheduling to all users, so that
you don't need to do anything with group membership (the simplest out of
the box experience). That is, of course, not as secure as having a group
for that purpose (as someone will surely point out), but, well, it is
what I do at CCRMA. Anyone can use jack, anyone can mess up a computer
using it :-)

It is difficult to know what is best to do. There is no recipe that will
work best for everyone.
In the past there was more chance that the Planet CCRMA kernel would not
work in a machine where the Fedora kernel would - I think that chance is
lower these days as I can roll out rt kernels that have almost the same
patches as the Fedora ones. And for a big chunk of users the current
Fedora kernels are "good enough" (it depends on the kind of work you
do). So I decided to lower the priority of installing and testing the
I should make it more clear that it is best to install the Planet CCRMA
Or, the permissions could be handled through a different package that is
installed independently of jack.
