I have no trouble with the RT kernel in ubuntu... I use the one from the default repos... however, I would like to discuss 64studio...
right now, when you go to the 64studio main page, it reads...
"64 Studio Ltd. produces bespoke GNU/Linux distributions which are compatible with official Debian and Ubuntu releases. Specialising in multimedia and digital content creation platforms which we develop for our OEM partners, we also offer support, documentation services and consultancy. Our software is already included in several shipping products in the professional audio market, with more to follow. In addition, we offer a free download product which has won critical acclaim for its stability and high performance."
when in fact, this is more like it..
"These days, our focus is not on a general-purpose creative distro,
because Ubuntu Studio and other similar projects like AV Linux provide
that. Rather, we use our distro customisation tools to create niche
products, like musical instruments, mobile devices and audio research
equipment. There will be more free download audio/multimedia distros available from
us though, because we need to stay very close to the community that
we've helped create."
in the future, responses about 64studio in this thread would be greatly appreciated... thanks..

So if a 64-bit Debian or Ubuntu based Linux is wanted, than a user might
be more comfortable to use Ubuntu Studio, but 64 Studio? Or using Ubuntu
Studio 8.04.1 (Hardy) + the 64 Studio 3.0 repository, resp. Ubuntu
Studio 9.10 (Karmic) + the 64 Studio 3.3 repository?
My plan for today was:
"I scheduled to get 64 Studio 3.0 and 3.3 from my broken hard disk
drive, by using a hammer or something softer, to free the heads, when
they do this click-click sound, but because the postman delivered the
second sound card I'm too curious, so I'll restore at least 3.3 from a
backup, to my new hard disk drive and delay the original plan."
Hm, maybe I'll completely delay to restore 64 Studio, but should take a
look at Ubuntu Studio 10.04 (Lucid)?!
I dunno what I'll do. At the moment it's to hot in the room, so I'll
turn of the computer and leave the room.
Hope you don't mind if I answer LIFO.
You actually have the answer in your conundrum. With 64 Studio you actually have the option to upgrade and carry on as always just a little better. It has been my experience that Ubuntu is too locked into the ":new = improved" philosophy to the extent that things that used to work are either non-existent anymore or cease to work which makes upgrading far riskier. To be fair and since I've been informed that Studio Ubuntu is not Canononical and I have only experience with 10.04, I can;t say if this will definitely be the case with SU. However historically there are many "branches" of Ubuntu that stay with the "trunk" or die off. They are often utterly dependent.
OT - As for your clicking hard drive, as long as it isn't grinding you may be able to save it. If you use the manufacturer's thorough test program sometimes just forcing the disk through a few hours of block-by-block checking will improve function long enough to back it up, if not put back into use. Hirens Boot CD is a good (and free) source for such tools.
