    Default Upgrade kernel-rt for openSUSE 11.0?

    Hello,

    My laptop is still on openSUSE 11.0, and I'm using a 2.6.25.20-0.1-rt kernel. I'd like to upgrade the kernel to the latest version, but I can't find one in the repositories: I tried the one at

    Index of /repositories/home:/sdietrich:/Kernel-RT/openSUSE_11.0

    But it didn't seem to work... does anyone have any suggestions?

    Upgrading to 11.1 did not work since it couldn't talk to the graphics card [i810 - there are other threads that go into issues, e.g. http://forums.opensuse.org/opensuse-...10-driver.html]. Perhaps waiting for 11.2 might do the job?

    IMHO waiting for 11.2 is your best option, then perform a clean install.

    Question: what are you using the realtime kernel for?

    Thanks. I will.

    I'm a musician and composer - mainly jazz and contemporary/modern, and the laptop is my for live looping/recording/composition/mixing work horse.

    Thought so. Was just wondering, since some people think they gain speed on an rt kernel.

    Well, there's a discussion in itself... I myself am not certain whether the speed is needed for what a lot of people use their computers. I know for certain that it isn't necessary for anyone to have a realtime kernel for notating a piece of music, or even recording or mastering. But for live looping it seems to make more sense. Not that I've ever tested it!
