Whitepaper: Realtime Audio Vs. Linux 2.6

by Center for Art and Media in KarlsruheJan 01, 2008

From the beginning of its development kernel 2.6 promised latency as low as a patched 2.4 kernel. These claims proved to be premature when testing of the 2.6.7 kernel showed it was much worse than 2.4. This paper presents a review of the most significant latency problems discovered and solved by the kernel developers with the input of the Linux audio community between the beginning of this informal collaboration in July 2004 around kernel 2.6.7 through the most recent development release, 2.6.16-rc5.
