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

I'm afraid I'm also getting the same error as mikkie and alessandro.

Thanks for the great repo BTW! smile

You are now or in the past?  I re-uploaded the file and reindexed the repo.  It worked just fine on my machine.

pacman -Syy && pacman -Syu

Tested now here and same error. sad
The kernel26-ck-core2 is fine (install ignoring the header).

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

graysky , there's an option in kernels .config - "Compile kernel with frame pointers" ,under kernel hacking , and default is - yes. So, i don't know do exported KCFLAGS have "higher priority" than setting this in kernel's configuration. i.e. does exported flags have any effect if this is turned on?

@mikkie and alessandro - deleted the files on the ftp and reuploaded.  Tested on my machine and all is well now.

Thanks, graysky! It works now!

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

@alessandro_ufms - I'm confused... is this still the case?  It worked just fine for me and for mikkie.
@sumski - I see it and am guessing based on the description that it should indeed be disabled.  I can disable this by default unless folks see a compelling reason not to...

CONFIG_FRAME_POINTER:
If you say Y here the resulting kernel image will be slightly larger and slower, but it gives very useful debugging information in case of kernel bugs. (precise oopses/stacktraces/warnings)

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

It's really odd. I tried clean the cache and nothing.

Trying decompress with tar, give the following error:
tar -xJf kernel26-ck-headers-2.6.38.6-1-x86_64.pkg.tar.xz
xz: (stdin): Compressed data is corrupt
tar: Child returned status 1
tar: Error is not recoverable: exiting now

Edit: I tried uninstall kernel26-ck-headers and install kernel26-ck-core2-headers and works. Thanks for the support.

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

regarding BFQ, you should apply the patch for this in your repo but with CFQ as default iosched so users can switch between them if they want via the kernel parameter elevator.

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

@JB - good idea.  I'll make the change.

EDIT: Done.  Now building the packages for the repo.

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

Hey there. First thanks for this repo smile

Well I would like asking something about the bfq sheduler. I wanted to try and I run in a few problems not sure if is my problem. I activate the bfq kernel. I prob it and did the echo like is explained in the wiki. Worked fine for a couple of hours. Well so I decided to put it as default (as explained on the wiki) and when I start my window manager (openbox if is revelant), the computer just freezes. Almost sure is in relation with bfq but I don't know why. I also tried to use the 2nd alternative and put elevator=bfq on kernel line but appears a message on the begin complaining that the i/o scheduler does'n exist. At the moment I'm using cfq and everything works normally. But I would like to know why this happens. Thanks smile

I guess is not only me. I saw this thread now: https://bbs.archlinux.org/viewtopic.php?id=119431

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

I've never had good experiences with the BFQ I/O scheduler.  I only added it to the pkg because so many people asked for it which I took to mean that the problems I experienced were unique to me.

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

Yeah, I understand that. Was just for trying. Well I guess is very instable (in my little experience) so I will stick with cfq which is a better idea.

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

BFQ is not that unstable, 2.9.39 seems to be. So I use 2.6.38.7.

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

Could you please add DomU i.e. Xen guest support in i686 package? I noticed there is no such support in official i686 kernel, however, Could you please do it? Thanks a lot.

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

@huws - sorry but the -ck package adheres as close as possible to the ARCH package with regard to configuration options.  You are free however to d/l the PKGBUILD from the AUR, enable the "nconfig" option and tweak away smile

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

Just wanted to note that kernel26-ck-2.6.39-2 has just be released.  What's different?  The -2 release Includes an option to compile with ck's new bfs v.404 test2 patch for those of us with these random hardlocks associated with Virtualbox and Chromium.  This patch tweaks the new plugged I/O flushing.  For more or to discuss this patch, see: http://ck-hack.blogspot.com/2011/05/2639-ck1.html

Note that the repo doesn't get this since the patch is an option and very much experimental.  Once CK calls the code "stable" he will iterate the bfs version and I will then include it.

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

Mmmh... I have these hardlocks. I use your repo. So I have to compile this thing on my own to avoid these hardlocks and can't use your repo with kernel26-ck-core2 anymore, until he proves this code as stable?

Best regards!

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

@lothium - yeah, I can't put experimental code into the repo thus forcing people to use it.  On the positive side, CK has indicated (on his blog) that a CK2 patchset is in the works.  Once he deems the code stable, I will of course update the PKGBUILD and the repo.  I would suggest that you compile up a kernel from the AUR enabling the code until he does if the hardlocks are bumming you out.

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

Ok thank you for your answer. Until Friday I have no time to compile it myself, so I use the stock kernel instead. Hope CK releases the patchset as soon as he can, cause I miss the performance of the ck-kernel wink. Thank you for your work graysky!

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

@Lothium - you're welcome.  Why not use the 2.6.38.6 ck kernel in your /var/cache/pacman/pkg until then?

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

Oh that's right regarded to bfq. I would advice that you should put on the kernel26-ck a note about if a person wants to use bfq using elevator=bfq on the kernel line, it should edit mkinitcpio.conf and put on the modules bfq-iosched like JokerBoy said here https://bbs.archlinux.org/viewtopic.php?id=119431 (5th post). Because without that it doesn't work tongue. It complains saying "I/O scheduler bfq not found".

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

I have mobile Celeron M520 (Merom-L). It is core-based mobile Celeron. Single-core 65 nm CPUs based on the Merom Core 2 architecture. 1 MB of L2 cache (half that of the low end Core 2 Duo's 2 MB cache), XD-bit support, but lack SpeedStep and Virtualization Technology.

What CK Package should I use?

The generic kernel26-ck, I think. There's no celeron-specific build, according to the arch wiki article.

Is there any bonus of using kernel26-ck-p4 or kernel26-ck-pentm for my laptop with celeron M520?
