What is the differences between Ubuntu existing general kernel of 11.10 vs so called
linux rt kernel?
- does audio delay depends on general kernel vs rt kernel? Where some audio capture looks like it has always a few MS delay.
Example: other distro have them
Choosing a Kernel for Your Use Case These are some simple guidelines provided to help you understand which kernel, and in which order, you should test to fit your use case. - If you do not require low latency for your system then please use the: -generic kernel. - If you need a low latency system (e.g. for recording audio) then please use the: -preempt kernel as a first choice. This reduces latency but doesn't sacrifice power saving features. It is available only for 64 bit systems (also called amd64). - If the -preempt kernel does not provide enough low latency for your needs (or you have an 32 bit system) then you should try the: -lowlatency kernel. - If the -lowlatency kernel isn't enough then you should try the: -rt kernel - If the -rt kernel isn't enough stable for you then you should try the: -realtime kernel
