Yet Another Kit

Post Syndicated from Lennart Poettering original http://0pointer.net/blog/projects/rtkit.html

A while
back
I was celebrating that arrival of secure realtime scheduling
for the desktop. As it appears this was a bit premature then, since (mis-)using
cgroups for this turned out to be more problematic and messy than I
anticipated.

As a followup I’d now like to point you to this announcement I
posted to LAD yesterday
, introducing RealtimeKit which should fix
the problem for good. It has now entered Rawhide becoming part of the default
install (by means of being a dependency of PulseAudio), and I assume the other
distros are going to adopt it pretty soon, too.

Read the full announcement.
