   Thanks for the heads-up. Unfortunately it didn't work for me. As
expected I now only see the noop and deadline schedulers registered
and then the machine hangs. Rebooting into 2.6.16-gentoo-r2 works
fine, as does the older 2.6.15-rt18.

   The pro-audio overlay is a great but I'm not sure I'm working it
perfectly well. For instance,

eix rt-sources

tells me there isn't a kernel but

emerge rt-sources

says it's in the pro-audio overlay, downloads and correctly installs it.

lightning ~ # eix rt-sources

Found 0 matches
lightning ~ # emerge -pv rt-sources

These are the packages that I would merge, in order:

Calculating dependencies ...done!
[ebuild   R   ] sys-kernel/rt-sources-2.6.16-r22  -build -doc -symlink 0 kB [2]

Total size of downloads: 0 kB
Portage overlays:
 [1] /usr/local/portage
 [2] /usr/portage/local/layman/pro-audio
lightning ~ #

I'm now confused about using this. I used the layman method of installing it.
