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.

Mod me down, I don't care. But.

I have to say, reading this has not been any fun. Or funny. Or interesting. I'd say such stuff would've been better placed in a low class linux newbie blog. The steps described and the things done would be ok if my art major sister wrote them. Otherwise, geez.

Seriously, this is how OSnews rolls now? Come on.

I agree. I've been disappointed to read this on OSNews too.

Yes, really. "I tried to build a kernel but didn't do my homework and ended up frustrated" isn't really newsworthy. Anywhere.

I'm inclined to agree as 3/4 of the article was about him distro hopping because the default behaviour wasn't what he expected.

There, there fella. Don't let haters get you down. I have no idea what in the world any of you are talking about. But Jimmy, keep on monkeying with this witchcraft and making the monies.

This article was ok. I think the biggest thing is that, in my opinion, it doesn't quite fit in with the recent "feeling" of the articles on OSNews. There wasn't any news in it and there wasn't much of an opinion. It was just kind of a "here's something I did" article.

Instead, I think any lessons you learned about compiling a realtime kernel would be appreciated if you added them to a place like the Arch Linux wiki. ;)
