Hi,

I'm considering whether to upgrade to Intrepid or not, because there seemed to be messages saying no realtime support for Intrepid for now.

But all those messages came from weeks ago, I wonder whether things have changed or not.

Thanks.

I don't think that they have changed as yet, I'd certainly be inclined to follow the release notes for the moment


UbuntuStudio real-time kernel support

The real-time kernel variant included in Ubuntu 8.10 does not include SMP support. Users of UbuntuStudio 8.04 who need real-time kernel support for dual-core, dual-processor, or more complex SMP configurations are advised not to upgrade to UbuntuStudio 8.10 at this time.

you mean the linux-rt pkg

http://packages.ubuntu.com/search?keywords=linux-rt&searchon=names&suite=intrepid&section=all

doesn't have smp support?

If not, you could always easily compile your own with KernelCheck. (http://kcheck.sourceforge.net/)

Indeed. Just upgraded my 8.04 box with rt kernel to 8.10 and now it only sees one CPU core. :(
