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.

About your Crunchbang issue

Fwiw, I think the problem you had with libcairo and libpango not installing in Crunchbang was because;

A) Crunchbang already included patched builds with higher version numbers, (at least for libcairo) or

B) The builds currently installed were from Crunchbang's own repo, which was given higher pin-priority (apt-pinning) than the stock Debian Squeeze repos.

I've done my own compiling in stock Debian (albeit I run Sid ) and have had no issues in the past. Though, like the above poster, I prefer make menuconfig over make gconfig.

This sort of stuff is still more straightforward in Arch, imho. Though I'm talking about stock Arch, not derivatives like ArchBang which I have no experience with.
