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

Thanks graysky for making things clear, as I couldn't understand the difference with the new way of creating universally optimized packages.

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

BTW graysky... does BFS also include dynticks (a.k.a. dynamic timer)?

I am configuring the timer with nconfig to 1000hz instead of the 300 hz default. But I would really like to see dynamic timer.

Con Kolivas said that he once worked on dynamic ticks project but he abandoned it due to frequent changes in linux kernel and breakage.

http://kerneltrap.org/node/6532

Maybe he resurrected it through BFS.

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

how is this different to CONFIG_NO_HZ ?

TBH i don't know, this is my first custom kernel in years, I missed many new kernel features.

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

Dynamic ticks have been enabled by default in the config file a long time now:
Processor type and features>Tickless System (Dynamic Ticks) ==> CONFIG_NO_HZ=y

Linux-ck is no exception.  See for yourself:

$ zcat /proc/config.gz | grep NO_HZ
CONFIG_NO_HZ=y

@graysky

It would appear that nvidia-utils wants to update(?), but the current nvidia-ck-corex requires 285.05.09 exactly:

We've got nvidia 290 in the repos now.

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

As karol said, what happened was that nvidia-utils in [extra] got released while I was at work smile
Building linux-ck v3.1.2-1 packages now and once that is complete (I need the respective linux-ck-XXX-headers), I will build the corresponding nvidia-ck-XXX packages.  It takes about 11 min per linux-ck package on my cluster, so look for an update at about 2 h (roughly 22:30 GMT).

OK, a little behind schedule but all packages are now live.  As usual, please let me know if problems occur.

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

Got the same problem as MrCode (almost; I have nvidia-ck not nvidia-ck-core), after installing linux-ck, trying to upgrade nvidia-ck:

makepkg -s
==> Making package: nvidia-ck 290.10-1 (Thu Nov 24 02:05:07 CET 2011)
==> Checking runtime dependencies...
==> Installing missing dependencies...
Password: 
resolving dependencies...
looking for inter-conflicts...
error: failed to prepare transaction (could not satisfy dependencies)
:: nvidia-ck: requires nvidia-utils=285.05.09
==> ERROR: 'pacman' failed to install missing dependencies.
# pacman -Su
:: Starting full system upgrade...
resolving dependencies...
looking for inter-conflicts...
error: failed to prepare transaction (could not satisfy dependencies)
:: nvidia-ck: requires nvidia-utils=285.05.09

I cannot update nvidia-utils to 290.10-1 because nvidia-ck requires 285.05.09, but somehow I cannot make a new package for of nvidia-ck because my current nvidia-ck requires 285.05.09, this I don't understand.
It seams to me that either there is some kind of circle referencing going on or perhaps my package database is broken, but most likely I'm just confused.
Being new to pacman, what is a safe way forward?

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

Jk - Try pacman -Syy to update the db.  I suspect your mirror list is out of date.  Try updating it/use the mirror status to make sure you have mirrors that have synced.

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

I rechecked my mirrors, but the thing is I'm able to see nvidia-utils 290.10-1 in the list of upgradeable packages, I'm just unable to install it.

pacman -S nvidia-utils
resolving dependencies...
looking for inter-conflicts...
error: failed to prepare transaction (could not satisfy dependencies)
:: nvidia-ck: requires nvidia-utils=285.05.09

Packages currently installed:
linux-ck-3.1.2-1
nvidia-ck 285.05.09-6
nvidia-utils 285.05.09-1
opencl-nvidia 290.10-1
lib32-nvidia-utils 290.10-1

EDIT:
Nailed it! Fearing I would mess up graphics if I could not reinstall the nvidia driver I removed the old nvidia-ck:

pacman -R nvidia-ck

Then I was successfuly able to upgrade to the latest nvidia-utils:

pacman -Su

And the finally upgrading to latest nvidia-ck worked:

aurget -S nvidia-ck

Thanks Graysky for your efforts!

Very odd... try:

 pacman -Rs nvidia-ck
pacman -Syyu
pacman -S nvidia-ck

Glad it's fixed, but I still don't understand the cause of the problem.  Upgraded flawlessly on 3 of my own machines running from the repo... hmm

CPU scaling governor doesn't work:

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

Very odd... which package and on which architecture are you running?  Can you post the output of the following 4 commands to www.pastebin.com so the thread doesn't get cluttered smile

pacman -Qq | grep cpufrequtils
ls -l /run/daemons
cat /proc/cpuinfo
dmesg

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

@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?
