Here's the link for step by step on Mklivecd. It is written for MDK but
same rules apply for PCLOS.
These guys are devs for PCLOS as well.
Did a little research on this RT issue last night...
So using the kernel above, (Im sure you know this already but for the
1./ #rmmod capability
#modprobe realtime any=1 gid=29
2./ "gid=29" assumes your user is added to group 29. The realtime gid
option can be for any group number.
3./ Set jack to run R/T in either Qjackctl or whatever.
This gave me RT operation with no issues. Had it running at 64 x 2 48000
on my XP 2500+, 1 gig, Delta 1010LT, Alsa 1.09rc2. Only the odd Xrun
when Ardour or some other apps fire up or shut down.

Also mentioned the issues I found in installing some apps from Thac's to
Thac via email and IRC. He is looking at those as time permits.
