My kernel is linux 2.6.22-16-rt in AMD64 mode.

$ uname -a
Linux cassiopea 2.6.22-16-rt #1 SMP PREEMPT RT Mon Nov 24 19:03:10 GMT
2008 x86_64 GNU/Linux

This kernel is one of the standard prebuild kernels in Ubuntu 7.10

Suffix "rt" in kernel name means Real Time, i.e. kernel was build with
real-time patch applied.

It seems that this kernel is very stable on my machines (HP Compaq 6710b
laptop is one of them) . But some people complied that real-time kernel
was unstable on their machines.
