Linux I don't actually have a reason for trying to build a Linux kernel with the CONFIG_PREEMPT_RT patch set. There's no way I can even measure the impact of it. Still, I felt like having a "real-time" Linux box, and set out to make one. Little did I know how difficult it would be to even get started.

I don't remember finding so many complications back when I used to build my kernels on Gentoo, and I was a trained monkey with Google too.

Then again back then it took me about 8 hours to compile it, so getting a non working kernel because of some config options was a major PITA.

I guess I've always been lucky with Linux, from that first time I managed to install Debian (or was it redhat?) from floppies on first try, not even really knowing exactly what Linux was or what I would even want to do with it.
