Wait... which kernel are you booting? ("uname -r" to find out). There
are two different kernels in Planet CCRMA land. If it is 2.4.26-1.ll
then it is the latest "vanilla" Planet CCRMA (patched for best latency)
kernel. If it is something else, then it is the "RedHat" kernel with
capabilities, which has worse latency but better "compatibility" with
the original unpatched RedHat kernel.
