Nice work! Runs fine here, in non-gui mode at least.

How come the binary on the releases page is 6.5MB whereas the tarball from the Code tab is 22.3kB?

Thanks sunrat. The binary is much bigger because it includes a Python runtime and all the Python dependencies, it's kind of a Python Flatpak :roll: For more info see https://pyinstaller.org/en/stable/

I've updated the initial post. rtcqs is a small utility that checks your Linux installation within a real-time audio context. It basically follows all the topics covered in https://wiki.linuxaudio.org/wiki/system_configuration and reports any possible bottlenecks regarding those topics.

Thanks for clearing that up. :)

P.S. I ran the preconpiled GUI version. Nice app man!

Gave it a try this morning...nice job! I hadn't known there was a GUI until today, used it and liked it. Too sad about the Qt interface though; to the extent possible I try to avoid adding entire "ecosystems" of development platforms, and TCL/Tk is one of them I try to prevent from popping up. Oh well. All-in-all though, nice work, it's really good to see it being maintained over the long haul.
