@reflex - does this governor (or any) work under the stock Arch kernel?  Also, which linux-ck package are you using (i686 or x86_64 and which one, generic, corex, etc.)?  Modprobe is behaving as though you don't have compatible hardware.  As an aside, when does you have only one daemon running?

Well, I'm running x86_64 corex linux-ck package. Nevermind, it doesn't work with stock Arch kernel too. Worked before like a charm.

What is interesting:

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

I am running linux-ck-corex on three different systems at work and all have no issues with that module.  What version of the stock kernel are you running?

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

I use corex on a Core 2 Duo Laptop. When I boot, the system crashes as soon as udev starts. This doesn't happen with linux from the repos ([testing] enabled). This happened before with corex. Then I could solve it by rerunning mkinitcpio -p linux-ck, but now this doesn't solve it. This might have something to do with the latest update of mkinitcpio

[2011-11-29 21:10] upgraded mkinitcpio (0.8.0-1 -> 0.8.0-2)

but I'm not sure.

Can anybody confirm this?

I'll provide logs asap, don't have the time right now, sorry.

Solved my problem after some google-fu.

Recently I bought new cooler and overclocked my Q6600, BIOS settings were resetted. Somehow I'd set my CPU clock ratio at 9 (maximum for Q6600) thus BIOS disabled Intel SpeedStep. There even wasn't such an option! It appears only when CPU ratio set to Auto. So I set ratio to Auto and enabled Intel SpeedStep. Fucking BIOS, how do they work? smile

Mysterious problem solved.

P. S. Thank you, graysky, for your support and packages.

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

@reflexing - glad you solved the problem and it wasn't my fault smile
@Army - Not using [testing] here and no problems... I can try it and post back.

upgraded mkinitcpio (0.7.5-1 -> 0.8.0-1)

EDIT: running x86_64 corex packages and mkinitcpio-0.8.0-2 here with no problems.

upgraded mkinitcpio (0.8.0-1 -> 0.8.0-2)

Suspect you have other problems.... does the ARCH kernel give the same problem?

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

I have the same problem - boot freezes just before/while udevd starts.

using latest kernel linux-ck-kx 32 bit, mkinitcpio-0.8.0-1 (now upgraded to mkinitcpio-0.8.0-2).

In fact machine boot successfully once in a several tries - 3-4-5 ...

Tried to boot linux-ck fallback to get more messages:

..... 
Probing EDD (edd=off to disale) ... ok

Decompressing Linux ... Parsing ELF ... done.

Booting the kernel.

(Cursor blinking) - freeze, keyboard combinations does not help

I'll check stock Arch kernel...

Update

Issue seems to be resolved after update to mkinitcpio-0.8.0-2 and change to stock arch kernel - 3 successful boots in the last 24 hours.
I'll probably install linux-ck again these days to narrow down the problem.

Yeah, add elevator=bfq in your kernel line in grub IIRC.

Thx

There's no reason it wouldn't work. smile

but which is better for ssd? bfq or noop?

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

@boris - I'm sure it's not the Linux-ck packages... Try it again.
@eni - no benchmarks... I use noop.  Bfq for me wasn't as responsive when copying large files from HDD to HDD.  Noop is much better.

rebooted, and .... freeze again. So the issue is somewhat related to the linux-ck kernel.

Strange, I just wanted to provide the logs, but now everything's fine again without updates. Maybe it's caused by my additional kernel line elements in the syslinux config, I don't know. Well, as soon as there are new issues I'll call.

No I didn't have those issues with linux from the repos, with the exact same configuration (same kernel line, same packages etc., just changed *-ck to * in the bootloader config)

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

@Army - I haven't ever used syslinux for booting, so I can't comment.  Glad your shit is up and running smile
@borislavl - When you said it freezes on boot, what is the output prior to the freeze?  Does it decompress the kernel image okay?

Completely irrelevant.  My workstation has / and /home on an SSD and runs -ck just fine.  My advice is not to use the bfq scheduler for an SSD.  I prefer noop.  See the SSD wiki article for more.

...you do know that bfq != bfs right?

bfs = brain fuck scheduler = cpu scheduler
bfq = budget fair scheduler = i/o scheduler

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

Ok, damn, the problem is NOT solved. The ck-Kernel only works if I reboot the system into it. On a cold start it hangs. I can't provide any further informations right now, but the only difference between a cold start and a reboot are the firmwares being loaded, right?

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

@Army - not sure.  Is this behavior true if you build the linux-ck package from the AUR as well?  If so, that means it isn't a repo-package issue and that you'll want to email CK with a bug report.

Okay, I compiled it myself, used the same config as you have in the corex package and now it boots just fine. So there must be something wrong with the corex package. But I don't know what..
