opensuse realtime kernel in 10.3

Well, it's hard to say why I'm writting this here… Maybe due the great warm feeling inside. The arising Opensuse 10.3 (still beta now) contains realtime kernel in base repository again:

http://download.opensuse.org/distribution/SL-OSS-factory/inst-source/sus...

What a good news! Of course I can use kernel-rt from jacklab.org in 10.2, but it breaks o lot of dependencies I have in system e.g. nvidia drivers etc. And now there could be latency under 1ms out of the box. And no xruns.

It's reason for a small celebration.

Yes, kernel-rt is the official package name and I guess its already available from the openSUSE 10.3 repositories for quite some time. Notice that, if you won't need to build external modules like nvidia, you'll be fine with the official package. The mini-howto above just gives the precise instructions to build an exact image of kernel-rt from kernel-source, but with the extra bonus :)

bye now

today I've done my custom kernel-rt, as is now routine ;)
the updated official source package has been found here:

heads-up: another custom kernel has been build and, fact is, now already in production ;)

kernel-source-2.6.22.18-0.2.src.rpm

or, from the most recent and latest release, openSUSE 11.0 Update:

kernel-source-2.6.25.9-0.2.src.rpm

and, better yet, from the bleeding-edge (ie. openSUSE Factory)

kernel-source-2.6.25.9-3.src.rpm

cheers

Finally a rt kernel in a big distro!

$ cd /local/pub && more beer > /dev/mouth - lol. now that is my kind of code!

Thank you! This is not usually!

$cd /local/pub && more beer > /dev/mouth - what does it mean? One month of drinking beer?

$cd /local/pub && more beer - :))))
