Thanks Fernando. I found that a few minutes ago. Good to know at least
I'm Googling out the right stuff.
Can you tell me what set of patches you deem necessary to make a good
audio kernel these days? Last October there were 4 patches that I
applied. I've forgotten what they all do:
1) I started with 2.6.8 from kernel.org I believe
2) Added 2.6.9_rc2 which I think got 2.6.8 up to 2.6.9_rc2.
3) I added 2.6.9-rc2-mm4 - I don't know what that is.
4) I then added VP-2.6.9-rc2-mm4-S7. I think that was Ingo's patch
5) Lastly I added the LSM patch - realtime-lsm-22.214.171.124 which I guess
gives me access to all of this as a user, correct?
What part of those is still required? All? Has anythign made it into
the kernel proper these days?
