    rtkit

    They pulled this out of Karmic. Now it is coming back. Problem is that it wants to remove various pusleaudio packages, which would seem to defeat the purpose. I guess we are waiting for compatible versions of those to arrive in the repos before we can install rtkit.

    Imho this package could also use a rename...
    A paranoid user could mistake this for a rootkit.

    Yeah. A google of rtkit comes up with a nasty windows virus as the first hit.

    rtkit is now in for me too. I notice it wanted to remove pusleaudio-module-udev so I let that happen.

    Hopefully this rtkit gizmo will improve pulseaudio performance.
