i was confused: i thought _rt_limits (realtime-limits and not resources-limits) is an
additional pam-module which is NOT included in the ubuntu libpam-modules package.
since pam is the standard in every newer distribution (also breezy and debian sarge)
it is (of course) easier to edit /etc/security/limits.conf then to compile the realtime-lsm.
(as i understand the ubuntustudio-rlimits-patch only adds the "@audio" entries.)
i did not know that it also works.

thank you,
