I've been able to get better low-latency out of the regular fedora kernel while using lxde as the window manager, then I can get out of the newest rt-kernel(when it isn't crashing of course). Video drivers can also be a problem, don't expect the nvidia drivers to work on the 3.0-rt.

Hi, I just released preliminary packages of 3.0.6 + the latest rt18...
they are available for fc15 on the planetcore-testing repository.
Usual caveats apply, not much testing done. Useful feedback would be
welcome in the rt kernel mailing list.
WARNING: these kernels have a few symbols that the binary NVidia driver
needs changed to GPL only, so it is not possible to build the glue
source that the NVidia driver needs on these kernels. Sorry, I can't do
much about it.
