Could someone provide a link to the RT kernel
that is used in SUSE,
please? I've looked on OBS but can't find anything. I'd like to see
what patches are applied etc, and also to see how it well it works on
Just curious, but why would you want a RT kernel at all, especially on a
ARM system? Your overall throughput is usually slower, and unless you
have a very specific hardware task, you don't need the latency
guarantees that the -rt kernel provides, right?
Well, there are a couple of reasons. One is I need to see how the
architecture behaves in comparison to others, like MIPS/Power/x86, in
different circumstances; two and probably more crucially, we have
customers looking at deploying Linux and have a hard requirement for
At present I'm hand rolling kernels and adding them to Linaro based
builds, which is far from ideal. I'd like to be able to use openSUSE
as it is my preferred distro, and the one I'm most comfortable with.
It also helps that we now have images for most useful ARM developer
boards, including the new Arndale which makes testing much easier.
