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.

A ridiculous dependency loop is why I gave up on CrunchBang. Package managers are supposed to take care of this kind of thing automatically. The fact that I could have just not used those packages doesn't change the fact that CrunchBang was inherently broken. I don't want to take away from the difficulty of maintaining a distro, but when it fails so drastically out of the box, I don't see the point in sticking with it. There are so many options out there; why bother with something when it has such a glaring flaw?
