A non-rt kernel is realy not an option for me, I can't run any of my 
apps :-( at least not with the preformance I'm used to.

I managed to install the rt-kernel (32bit) from the repros, a 173 Nvidia 
driver (the 177 didnt work for me), Wine and Wineasio, and have been 
trying to crash the system for an hour now, without any luck :-)
I use EnergyXT2 with (win)vsti's for drums, bass and keyboards, and then 
record guitar, vocals and other analog thingies.

But lets say (for the sake of the argument) that I don't know anything 
about kernels ;-)
Will I still be using all the new stuff in 8.10, xorg, qt.... ?
And will the kernel be updated automaticly when the new one arrive ?

Kind regards
