Hey, thanks for the info kyak.  I am glad to see that the message is apparently as harmless to the system as it seems.  I have noticed no difference in performance or reliability, so that is great.  I thought about adding the patch and recompiling, but if it isn't a real issue, then I think I will just leave it as is for now.  Of course if graysky feels so inclined to add it to his repo's kernels I would happily test. smile

I get the full speed of my internet connection (about 1000K/s) for a while (~20 seconds) and then it go down to something around 50K/s for  the rest of the download.

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

Hello. Can you place somewhere an older version of ck kernel, which doesn't have a ext4 bug? Preferably for corex.

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

@h31 - I only keep the latest versions online (3.6.4-1 at the moment).  You can always download the older source and compile yourself if you wish.  From my understanding of the dreaded ext4 bug, it only affects very uncommon situations.  I am not worrying about it on my machines.  The ext4 devs didn't think that their proposed fix was important enough to include in 3.6.4 for example.

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

Currently having some troubles with linux-ck-atom 3.6.4-1 and broadcom-wl-ck-atom 5.100.82.112-25 : my wlan0 (udev binding rules https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/Br … com-wl.29) isn't recognized. In fact, my system sees no wireless interface at all, despite it's working fine with [core] linux 3.6.3-1 and broadcom-wl 5.100.82.112-8 from AUR.

@PostB - I just rebuilt these against the 3.6.4-1 headers and reuploaded to the repo.  Please update and let me know.

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

No problem.  Guess I need to just rebuild the damn drivers with each version bump to be safe.  I can't test broadcom anymore since my old laptop died.  New one uses other drivers.

I can confirm this.  I stopped complaining about the wl module a while back when I started recompiling it myself after each kernel update.

on a different note:

I JUST noticed that there are virtualbox packages for the particular compiled kernels.  Is the PKGBUILD the same/similar to what's in the AUR?  How often do you need to rebuild those packages?

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

hrm.. I cant quite figure out why graysky no longer includes the arch logos in the kernel, considering those of us using the official closed source Nvidia drivers cant use KMS (at least afaik)... but whatever.. anyway.. nearest as I can tell the 3.1.8 src pkg is the last one with the logo images... does anyone happen to have this package available as it no longer seems to be on repo-ck.com?

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

@akspecs - The vbox modules _need_ to be compiled each time a new kernel release is out.  I know this because I use the corex kernel on my own boxes and if I don't recompile them, I can't use virtualbox.  To the broadcom issue... I am able to `sudo modprobe wl` on my test machine.  If that fails, I will bump the pkgver one and compile them for the repo.  What I can't do is verify that the probed module works.  Interestingly, I also test the nvidia modules and those seem not to care about minor version bumps.  Crazy.

@hekel - I dropped the logos a long time ago since most users don't even see them.  You might be able to find them in an older version on the http://pkgbuild.com/git/aur-mirror.git/log/linux-ck

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

Today I changed my system to a pure systemd installation. While examining the journalctl log and working out errors I stumbled over the following entry:

Failed to create cgroup cpu:/: No such file or directory

The arch standard kernel does not have this error.

This seems to be kernel config related as stated her:
http://0pointer.de/blog/projects/cgroup … roups.html
The arch stock kernel has cgroups enabled, while ck seems to have not which is not a good idea using systemd:

systemd does not require the performance-sensitive bits of Linux control groups enabled in the kernel. However, it does require some non-performance-sensitive bits of the control group logic.

Could you please have a look at this and eventually change the kernel config to suit systemd's needs?

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

@Harvey - That's odd.  According to that page you referenced, one need only enable "CONFIG_CGROUPS=y" to use systemd if I read that correctly.  Linux-ck starts with the stock ARCH config files and only modifies them accommodation the ck1 patchset and the bfq patchset with the later being functionally inactive unless the user sets that IO scheduler.  Anyway:

$ zgrep CONFIG_CGROUPS=y /proc/config.gz
CONFIG_CGROUPS=y

This is on my linux-ck-kx box.  I do see that peculiar line in the journalctl as well:

Failed to create cgroup cpu:/: No such file or directory

Perhaps this is one to ask CK directly.

I have no problems with cgroups with the ck kernel in terms of functionality compared to the normal kernel... but I too find that line in my journal.

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

Again, according to the document Harvey posted, there should be no warnings by systemd.  Sounds like a systemd bug.
