nous, how do you install aufs3-utils ? do you use a different pkgbuild or something?

Re: The linux-pf thread; BFS/CK, TuxOnIce, BFQ, AUFS3

I managed to get aufs-util to compile by patching the makefile with CPPFLAGS to include the pf kernel include path.
Instructions to do this are in the readme in the src of aufs3-util. 

The patch added the following line to the makefile: 
   
    CPPFLAGS += -I/lib/modules/3.0-pf/build/include

Hope this helps

Thaks, I'm posting this to the aufs3-util AUR page, to alert the maintainer .

Pardon my ignorance, but is compression working fine now for TuxOnIce?

Re: The linux-pf thread; BFS/CK, TuxOnIce, BFQ, AUFS3

Just a little warning for anyone using bfs + vmware (player,workstation) 8.
The default io scheduler, bfq, doesn't play nice with it.
Guest operating system (xp in my case) can freeze the host indefinitely when doing hd i/o, this is evident in boot stage (guest also take ages to boot).

Switching from bfq to noop or cfq makes the machine resurrect, instantly.

Tried with 3.0.7-pf

-EDIT-
I've to add that this is the first time i noticed that bug, i mean that it only happens with vmware.

BFQ for 3.1 is known for bugs. Please, wait for updated release from its developers.

Re: The linux-pf thread; BFS/CK, TuxOnIce, BFQ, AUFS3

as a side note, is it... asking for trouble to patch linux-vserver on top of pf-sources? seems to apply quite cleanly.

$ patch -s -p1 --dry-run < /mnt/datapool/gentoo/distfiles/patch-3.0.7-vs2.3.1.diff
1 out of 1 hunk FAILED -- saving rejects to file Makefile.rej
2 out of 16 hunks FAILED -- saving rejects to file include/linux/fs.h.rej
$

edit: Makefile is obviously for "-pf" and fs.h is about only some #defines getting rearranged with pf-patch going first. added the missing lines from vserver-diff .rej and all looks safe at first sight, i'll start building in the morning :>

edit2: built and booted this monstrosity :> got a strange hang rebuilding kernel on a zfs-fuse mount.

felt quite similar to above:

The default io scheduler, bfq, doesn't play nice with it.

otoh 3.0.2-pf hasn't had a single hickup with it.. went elevator=cfq for the time being just in case.

Re: The linux-pf thread; BFS/CK, TuxOnIce, BFQ, AUFS3

Hi people.
I created this package (starting with kernel26-pf) because I used both BFS and tuxonice, patching tediously my kernel, before I found out that post-factum had actually set up a git repository doing the same thing the right and elegant way. That was when I decided to provide a package here, to let other Archers benefit from his effort.
That being said and as "real life" obligations keep squeezing my free time to extinction, I've decided to seek a devoted and capable maintainer for this package. I still use linux-pf exclusively on all my boxes and will do so, therefore I need someone to take good care of it. At the very least, one should have:
1. A firm grasp of bash shell scripting (for handling the PKGBUILD)
2. Adequate experience in linux generally and in Arch linux specifically
3. Some knowledge of kernel compilation tasks (e.g. patching, resolving gcc errors, understanding kernel configuration options etc)

I'll keep providing precompiled binaries in my repo, as building them is scripted and trivial once the PKGBUILD is updated and the 2 kernel configs from the stock -ARCH kernel are adapted to -pf every time the minor version number changes. I'll also help the new maintainer with the whys and wtfs of the PKGBUILD.

looking forward to 3.1.0-pf. in the meanwhile, i'm running 3.0.2-pf, does anyone happen to know why my laptop system time stops while in suspend?

i thought only PM_DEBUG and friends did that since they save their magic into RTC, but after disabling these, system time still stops in suspend. this used to work fine in 2.6.39 for sure. i suspect it has something to do with the new RTC subsystem redesign in 3.0.

could this be related:

$ sudo hwclock -r
hwclock: select() to /dev/rtc to wait for clock tick timed out: Success

adding --directisa makes hwclock work, but is this how it's supposed to be?

full kernel config is at http://paste.pocoo.org/show/500367/, perhaps someone knows what i'm doing wrong?

these seem interesting:

CONFIG_RTC_HCTOSYS=y
CONFIG_RTC_HCTOSYS_DEVICE="rtc0"

installed 3.1.1-pf. it did not help with my stopping time issue. resetting clock in BIOS ended up fixing it.

i eventually also tried going back to CONFIG_RTC [2]. did not help and hwclock -r still failed.

after finding [1], i thought i'd give resetting BIOS
a try. arriving in BIOS i noticed the time shown there was off for even UTC, so
i set it right, and saved the result - i.e. did not even do a complete "load
defaults".

after next boot, hwclock -r seemed to work without issues and
testing suspend also resulted in correct time after resume. hopefully problem
solved.

Re: The linux-pf thread; BFS/CK, TuxOnIce, BFQ, AUFS3

I hope someone does continue to maintain is as having this binary package is really useful.  I also wanted to reiterate the request of kokoko3k regarding CONFIG_TIMER_STATS and powertop.  Tuxonice is particularly useful on laptops and powertop is also useful on laptops for monitoring power consumption, so I would like to see this option enabled.  Many thanks.

I'm finding it hard to orphan this package. It seems that I'd rather spend my few precious hours of rest working on it than letting it go...

Re: The linux-pf thread; BFS/CK, TuxOnIce, BFQ, AUFS3

Hey guys,
building linux-pf failes with the new PKGBUILD.
It generated two packages. "-3.1.1-5-x86_64.pkg.tar.xz" and "linux-pf-headers-3.1.1-5-x86_64.pkg.tar.xz".

I'm using the "L" option when asked.

Does anyone know whats going wrong in my system?

Nothing is wrong with your system, I botched the PKGBUILD a little moving to the split package scheme. 3.1.1-6 which I just uploaded should be OK.
