I would think you'd need to use this package, not the firmware package:  http://aur.archlinux.org/packages.php?ID=34281

All you need to do is make sure you're booted into kernel26-ck, then modify the PKGBUILD, specifically the depends and makedepends either deleting them or changing them to kernel26-ck and kernel26-ck-headers.  Since the kernel version is defined by $(uname -r) in the PKGBUILD, it is critically important that you're booted into the kernel of interest.

That's the happy ending smile

Re: unofficial linux-ck repo with cpu optimized packages is ONLINE

Thanks a ton for this repository!  I have a Thinkpad X120e (Fusion APU) and it is a major PITA to compile kernels on it, because it takes around 4 hours to do so, so I'm glad to see these awesome kernels precompiled for me.  It works out great, and I can definitely tell the difference the ck patch set provides!

Re: unofficial linux-ck repo with cpu optimized packages is ONLINE

@mrmylanman - You're welcome.  Always happy to give back to the Arch community.
@sonay - I realized that you should only need to compile that package while booted into the ck kernel; my kernels provide "kernel26" and "kerenl26-headers" to avoid this but I was pretty tired when I typed my original reply.

$ grep provides PKGBUILD 
provides=("kernel26-ck=${pkgver}")
provides=("kernel26-ck-headers=${pkgver}" "kernel26-headers=${pkgver}")

Re: unofficial linux-ck repo with cpu optimized packages is ONLINE

I don't know if this is the right place to post this but the forcedeth driver isn't working too well on my ck-k8 kernel. I really don't know why, it did a couple of ck-k8 kernels ago, like the earlier 2.6.38's. Not with the 2.6.38.7-1 and 2.6.39.x. This is with bfq and without bfq activated. Take a look at my thread here: https://bbs.archlinux.org/viewtopic.php?id=120329
Just now I tried the standard arch 2.6.38.8-1  and forcedeth works as it should, it seems.
I really don't mean to double post but it seems to be ck-kernel related and Google is of no help with ck kernels and forcedeth driver. If I'm out of bounds please point me in the right direction...

By the way, my r8169 works fine.
PS logs in the other thread, the few there are.

Re: unofficial linux-ck repo with cpu optimized packages is ONLINE

As the previous post, it's the wrong place but I don't know where to post this message.
I really like your Kernel26-ck in AUR but graysky something is failing in PKGBUILD.
When I try to rename the kernel with a different name and after a compilation, the name is always the same instead of "2.6.39-Madck" for example.
Here my PKGBUILD:

## LOCALMODCONFIG OPTION
 # As of mainline 2.6.32, running with this option will only build the modules that you currently have
 # probed in your system VASTLY reducing the number of modules build.
 #
 # WARNING - make CERTAIN that all modules are modprobed BEFORE you begin making the pkg!
 # Read, https://bbs.archlinux.org/viewtopic.php?pid=830221#p830221
 # To keep track of which modules are needed for your specific system/hardware, give my module_db script
 # a try: http://aur.archlinux.org/packages.php?ID=41689
 #
 # Note that if you use my script, this PKGBUILD will auto run the reload_data base for you to probe
 # all the modules you have logged!
 #
## USE CURRENT KERNEL'S .CONFIG
 # Enabling this option will use the .config of the RUNNING kernel rather than the ARCH defaults.
 # Useful when the package gets updated and you already went through the trouble of customizing your
 # config options.  NOT recommended when a new kernel is released, but again, convenient for package bumps.

Re: unofficial linux-ck repo with cpu optimized packages is ONLINE

The package name or the kernel name?

Because the kernel name is set in the kernel config before compilation.

Re: unofficial linux-ck repo with cpu optimized packages is ONLINE

@swanson - I will answer in your other thread if I can.
@Ypnose - please start a new thread to help keep this one on-topic for repo related issues only (glad to look into it for you but at first glance you have only changed the name in the pkgname field and not the corresponding ones also.)

@sonay - I realized that you should only need to compile that package while booted into the ck kernel; my kernels provide "kernel26" and "kerenl26-headers" to avoid this but I was pretty tired when I typed my original reply.

$ grep provides PKGBUILD 
provides=("kernel26-ck=${pkgver}")
provides=("kernel26-ck-headers=${pkgver}" "kernel26-headers=${pkgver}")

Original post edited.

Thank you graysky, you have been more than great. I did the compile before the happy ending message and it is working good. However, my experience with kernel26-ck is not much good. I can feel a boost but occasionally I get complete locked downs, keyboard, mouse and xorg(possibly the root of all evil tongue) and I need to do hard shutdown by pressing the power button. I am also using bfq io scheduler, I'll change that and see if it helps. I might trace back the problem, if I can get some orientation. However log files may not be saved due to crash or hard shutdown.

Re: unofficial linux-ck repo with cpu optimized packages is ONLINE

Hum, I read the whole topic and I don't know what package I have to install for a Phenom II 955 BE k10 based. Some persons installed the generic package and some others the k8 package. Wiki said it's OK for k8 package on K10, so what package i have to install? I am totally confused now.

Re: unofficial linux-ck repo with cpu optimized packages is ONLINE

EDIT: just hang tight.  I see now that there is a march setting specific to k10 per the gentoo safe cflags page which I will use.  I will build up a kernel-ck-k10 package.  Shouldn't take too long.

@Ypnose - before I make the changes, can you verify that I have the settings right?  See this thread and please post there.

Re: unofficial linux-ck repo with cpu optimized packages is ONLINE

Thanks.  Modifying my build script was more tedious than I thought but I believe that it's done now.  x86_64 should be online.  i686 is building, then I have to manually inspect each package to ensure that I have all the sed modifications to conflicts, pkgname, pkgdesc, etc. correct but go ahead and update if you're using x86_64 and as usual please report any problems here.  I expect the i686 packages to be up in a few hours.

EDIT: and now they are up.  Please update and report errors as usual.  Hopefully, there won't be any smile

could you please add nvidia-173xx for older cards? i bet that there are still quite a few people using them.

@silvik - sorry dude, but I have no older hardware to test the resulting packages.
@swanson - great, glad to hear it!

Re: unofficial linux-ck repo with cpu optimized packages is ONLINE

Without criticism, I noticed a load average much higher with a ck kernel (k10), than the vanilla version. Especially during games.

Re: unofficial linux-ck repo with cpu optimized packages is ONLINE

@Ypnose - dunno what to tell ya.

Functional differences in PKGBUILD:
Generic: CFLAGS="-march=x86-64 -mtune=generic -O2 -pipe"
k10: CFLAGS="-march=amdfam10 -mtune=amdfam10 -O2 -pipe"

Functional differences in config.x86_64:

Hum, it was just an observation. I am sure, you did the right things. wink
I think it's related to CK patches.

Re: unofficial linux-ck repo with cpu optimized packages is ONLINE

Is it possible to have a separate mkinitcpio.conf for creating a new kernel image for kernel26-ck? I have followed the wiki suggestion and added bfq-iosched to the MODULES= line in mkinitcpio.conf, but if I were to create a new kernel image for kernel26 (non-ck) it would of course also take the same MODULES= line.


Also: is there maybe a patch set for CoreDuo CPUs available? I am running a CoreDuo L2400 which unfortunately is not a Core2Duo. :-)


EDIT: Actually, it seems as if I am not able to boot the kernel properly with bfq:
I have done exactly what was stated in the wiki:
+ added bfq-iosched to MODULES= in /etc/mkinitcpio.conf
+ added elevator=bfq to /boot/grub/menu.lst
+ created a new image with mkinitcpio -p kernel26
+ changed /boot/grub/menu.lst to read:

kernel /boot/vmlinuz26-ck root=/dev/disk/by-uuid/4a4e4ab4-352c-4bdf-983a-759a06650299 resume=/dev/disk/by-uuid/4444813a-6cc3-4d57-9b3c-4ba578e8d202 ro i915.modeset=1 elevator=bfq
initrd /boot/kernel26-ck.img

Is there anything I forgot doing?

EDIT2: The whole thing gets stuck the moment I add elevator=bfq to the kernel line in menu.lst; during start up, the system hangs at the following line:

io scheduler bfq registered (default)

If I remove elevator=bfq the last line of the kernel booting process then reads (as you can see, without (default) ):

io scheduler bfq registered

Any ideas?

Re: unofficial linux-ck repo with cpu optimized packages is ONLINE

i think it will be better if BFQ is built in, then stuff will be easier to configure (just adding elevator=bfq in fact).

Re: unofficial linux-ck repo with cpu optimized packages is ONLINE

:confused: - why not simply add it to MODULES array and a one liner in /etc/rc.local?  This way majority of users who don't use it don't have it built into their kernels, just as a module if they want it.

Re: unofficial linux-ck repo with cpu optimized packages is ONLINE

Stalafin, it is possible to use different configuration files for mkinitcpio by selecting the .conf file on the preset.

On /etc/mkinitcpio.d/kernel26-ck.preset or something like that you'll find this line:

ALL_config="/etc/mkinitcpio.conf"

Change it to point the file you want to use for -ck kernel, and then to generate the appropiate image:

mkinitcpio -p kernel26-ck

(change kernel26-ck for whatever your preset is)
