No, better not: It's dangerous, if your patch is buggy and pd runs
wild. I only use -rt during performances.
Regarding patco's problem with realtime mode: "chmod +s" is not a good
idea as it's a potentially big security hole opening up your system
for all kind of local exploits.
And it's not necessary, if your system is set up correctly. Correctly
means, that you need a current libpam (Ubuntustudio has it) and you
need to set up /etc/security/limits.conf accordingly. Accordingly
means, have something like this in it:
@audio - nice -10
@audio - rtprio 99
@audio - memlock -1
and your user needs to be in group "audio" then.
If even then, Pd's realtime mode isn't activated, then something much
deeper is wrong.
