I'd really like to get busy using jackd in realtime mode. I would rather not run jackd as root for obvious reason, all clients need to be run as root, then all files generated also belong to root etc.

I've read about enabling "POSIX capabilities inheritance," which allows non-root user processes to obtain realtime access but that is apparently also a security risk.

realtime-lsm is a possibility but it fails to build against stock Debian kernel linux-image-2.6.15-1-486 error is:
"Security capabilities not configured as module"

I also believe that realtime-lsm support was dropped some time ago.

I tried Ingo's rt patch (patch-2.6.16-rt17) and attempted to apply it to linux- but several hunks fail. What does a guy have to do to get a realtime kernel in Debian?
