 I run Kontakt on my Gentoo 2.6.16-rt29 as a vst plug in both fst 
1.8 and vsthost( dssi-vst). It's pretty good, tho a much bigger resource hog 
than 1.5 was; which i was able to run flawlessly. You'll probably get some 
occasional hung notes in vsthost and you'll probably get occasional clicks in 
fst 1.8;  You MUST run fst with the -r option otherwise Kontakt/fst/wine just 
segfaults and may lock-up your machine completely. Vsthost doesn't do that at 
all. I get reasonable stability from 128 but choose 256 frames normally.

I'm using wine .9.9 from the pro-audio portage overlay and jack .102.20 from 

When you get it, it would be good to compare notes !
