Fedora 15 has officially been released as of May 24th. This version includes a 
Kernel with BKL (Big Kernel Lock) removed. From what I have read you no longer 
need the real-time kernel patches. Wow! what a relief. However, there are some 
other user permission settings required to make the audio performance (latency) 
equal or better than the real-time kernel

Question: Has anyone managed to get JACK, ardour working on Fedora 15 
(specifically kernel without BKL), if so, how does the performance compare. 
Also, if you know of any "HOWTO documentation", especially for Fedora 15, please 
pass it along.
