Default Version update from 10.10 to 11.04 - Is it better to re-build the kernel-rt?

I was thinking of this myself, but OTOH, I wasn't able to build the
nvidia driver/modules for current real-time kernels.

Btw. the update failed. I'll restore Maverick from the backup archive. I
guess it's because of dirty tricks to get the Envy24 work, an
pulseaudio issue.
