Not sure what you mean... the nconfig offers only so many CPU-specific options.  As noted, the kernel source overrides any settings you place in CFLAGS (in /etc/makepkg.conf).

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

Just wanted to say thanks! I'm using corex for few days, and there is almost no difference in responsiveness under high load. Right now I'm building Cyanogenmod at 8.56 load and only fans are telling that laptop is under heavy load. With vanilla kernel browsing while building was almost impossible.

Hmm, just tested to copy a 3.8GB file to a stick

CFQ: 5,45min
BFQ: 6:16min

Same file, same stick (file deleted from stick before second copy)

But it's offtopc, sorry. wink

That is the whole point of BFQ. It is slower, but the system remains responsive. I remember in the past how my whole desktop froze for minutes when I had to copy files in the background.
Sorry for the offtopic.

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

I didn't find the relevant information in this 40-pages thread (I may haven't seen it), but is there an easy way to get "b43-firmware-ck" instead of/besides the broadcom-wl-ck ? It would be welcome.

PS : thx for this work, it's working awesomely on both my desktops.

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

To my knowledge, there isn't such a package.  You can easily modify the non ck version in the aur to work either by deleting the depends array or modifying it to require linux-ck.

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

EDIT: I spoke too soon.  I cannot build this package with the unofficial patchset + the ARCH config files.  My testing was indeed built with the base build, but I enabled the localmodconfig setting and thus only built a subset of all the modules (unique to my system).  When I disabled this option and built the full package, I get build errors preventing compilation.  As a result, we have to wait for a fix.  Back to 3.5.6.

Here are the warnings from the build log so the problem lies somewhere with these options:

ORIGINAL POST:
tl;dr - I pushed the unofficial ck1 into the linux-ck package and am rebuilding packages for the repo now.  I have a high confidence in the unofficial patch and will use it unless you guys tell me otherwise with issues if you experience them.

Details - A tragedy that has befallen the Kolivas family, which has focused CK's attentions elsewhere. Our wishes of warmth and strength go out to the Kolivas family! An active member of the community, Martin, has stepped up to fill the temporary void by porting both BFS v0.242 and CK1 from the 3.5 tree into the 3.6 tree.

I have done some initially benchmarking on Martin's port and have found it to preform very well in my make benchmark detailed below -- on par with other official CK releases. These data coupled with the broad adoption of these unofficial patches into Oleksandr Natalenko's linux-pf patchset make me feel confident in including these in linux-ck both in the AUR and in repo-ck.

Benchmark results:
unofficial_patch_comparison.jpg
The -ck patched kernel clearly differentiates itself from mainline with n=28 runs doing a `make -j8 bzImage` on v3.6.1.

Link to my benchmark script on github.

Details:
1) It is a non-latency based measure.
2) Compilation benchmark using gcc to “make bzImage” for a preconfigured linux 3.6.1 build.
3) Runs benchmarks 28 times totally to get a decent number of observations for a statistical comparison.
4) Results are how many seconds it took to compile on a 3370K @ 4.5 GHz.
5) Make is run with 8 threads (4 physical cores and 4 HT cores).

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

When I ask this (you new post) IS that I want read

Is clear that bfq is good and this is the clearest brenchmark,
But you say about the pf-patch that you gona to include it?? when??? or I read wrong???


Well, I suppose that this is somekind of signature, no?

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

@Jr - No.  My point in mentioning linux-pf is that it another major patchset with a substantial user base has adpoted the unofficial patchset.  That is all.

Do not confuse bfs with bfq.  They are different.  The bfq is only for disk IO; the bfs is for CPU.  Both bot these are included in linux-ck.

BFS is hardcoded into linux-ck.  You can check it in your dmesg like so:

% dmesg | grep BFS   
[    0.578275] BFS CPU scheduler v0.424 by Con Kolivas.

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

OK! CK just released an OFFICIAL CK1 with bfs v0.425 that patches into the 3.6 tree, however it has a slight problem and will not build with guest virtualization enabled which as you know is part of the stock ARCH config. I emailed him and hope to have a fix soon. I will keep you updated.

OK!  Problems solved and 3.6.2-1 is building for the repo now.  Check it in a few hours.
