Right now I'm going to backup US Precise. After making the backup I'll
disable or remove PA and I'll build a full preempt non-rt kernel with
threadirqs as boot option. Such a kernel should enable that rtirq does
what I expect to do it. I still wonder what to do, to get access to the
4GB RAM, instead of just 3.8GB, since arch is 64-bit.
If you've got a link at hand, than yes, please send me the link.

I absolutely don't need PA.

Yes :)!

No, there's no audio output.


PS: Desktop usage (mails, browser etc. is fast and without issues). I
only had o change one color for Xfce terminal. I changed palette entry
13 from #5555FF to #AFAFE3, because when I run
spinymouse at precise:~$ ls -l .local/share/evolution
lrwxrwxrwx 1 spinymouse spinymouse   58 Apr 28 15:13 mail
-> /mnt/archlinux/home/spinymouse/.local/share/evolution/mail
the link color was unreadable on the black background.
