I thought that this patch did that:
http://ck.kolivas.org/patches/3.0/3.7/3 … 1000.patch
But now it's not clear to me if patch-3.7-ck1 sets it to 1000 by default. Perhaps my statement was incorrect.

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

No problem.  The -ARCH kernel uses NO_HZ=y (tickless) as does linux-ck.

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

Ok so i install the ivybridge-ck everything runs great, applications and everything. the only issue im having is my sound is no longer working and the video is choppy. it makes a sound but its choppy to. everything else is working so far. and loading large applications seems alot faster.

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

I doubt your choppy sound is due to the linux-ck package.  Try the arch package from [testing] to see.

i still have the arch kernel installed and my sound and everything is fine on it.

when i run

gcc -c -Q -march=native --help=target | grep march

corei7-avx

it tells me sandybridge but i know my hardware is for sure ivy, should i install sandybridge?
Also thank you for the quick response.

EDIT: ok the sound issue is solved by going to sandybrige. but now on this my brighness is set to 91 and i cant change it via my DE applet. so i dont know, i think the ivybridge is what i need because thats my hardware, i dont know why

gcc -c -Q -march=native --help=target | grep march

displays corei7-avx ..

i installed the default linux-ck and everything works exactly like sandybridge with the brightness stuck at 91%

Sounds like there are several issues at work here...
1) I haven't seen gcc display the wrong value yet... are you use you have an ivybridge chip?  Post the output of:

head /proc/cpuinfo

The fact that the choppy audio goes away with sandy and generic seems to point to something in ivy that your hardware doesn't like.
2) Post the output of:

pacman -Q | grep linux

My hardware is Ivybridge with Intel 3rd gen everything else. asus k55a-hi5121e. Also the screen brightness says 91% on the ivybridge-ck but its not, and i still cant change it. unlike on the sandybridge-ck where it really was stuck at 91% and i couldnt change it.

Agreed.  You have an ivybridge.

You must compare linux-ck version X to ARCH version X.  Here you are running ARCH 3.6.11-1 and you are running -ck 3.7.1-3 so it is not a valid comparison.  You must install ARCH from [testing], reboot into it and then check if your brightness works.  I am going to guess that it will not and that the problem is with upstream 3.7.1 not with the trivial ck patches.

Note - I *just* now updated the repo with version 3.7.2 which matches the ARCH kernel.  So you will need to updated first `pacman -Syyu` then install manually the ARCH kernel from [testing].

ok going to test now, ill edit this post with results.


EDIT:
i now have the arch kernel from testing the video and sound is fine but the brightness is stuck at 91%.
patching 3.6 kernel with your 3.6 patch. ill tell you how it goes. compiling now.



Ok, i applied ck 3.6 kernel just fine. everything seems to be working so far. thanks for your help. i guess ill wait till the 3.7 kernel works for me.

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

Ok. after your jan 12th update everything works but adjusting the backlight but its fine. thanks for your help in identifying it was kernel issue. i would like your ivybridge config though. so i can keep using it on any kernel.

I mean like the source. so i could look at the kernel config and compair it to the official arch kernel config. Thanks for all your help and time.

Thank you graysky for your effort and time towards the community. I am using your ck kernel (core 2) right now, no problems so far. Keep up the good work. smile

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

I have a similar issue as usrjames: I have an Ivy Bridge processor (i7-3517U), and

gcc -c -Q -march=native --help=target | grep march

tells me

  -march=                     		corei7-avx

Should I install ck-sandybridge of ck-ivybridge?

Thanks

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

Per the docs for gcc:

corei7-avx = sandy
core-avx-i = ivy

I dunno if it's a gcc bug or what.  You can simply try the ivy package and if it don't boot or causes problems, drop down to the sandy package.

I haven't measured the difference between the two optimizations; I have measured the difference against the generic optimizations and there was a statically significant difference.

Hello

Just to mention that currently lirc-ck cannot be built:

libtoolize: Consider adding `-I m4' to ACLOCAL_AMFLAGS in Makefile.am.
configure.ac:11: error: 'AM_CONFIG_HEADER': this macro is obsolete.
    You should use the 'AC_CONFIG_HEADERS' macro instead.
/usr/share/aclocal-1.13/obsolete-err.m4:12: AM_CONFIG_HEADER is expanded from...
configure.ac:11: the top level
autom4te: /usr/bin/m4 failed with exit status: 1
aclocal: error: echo failed with exit status: 1
autoreconf: aclocal failed with exit status: 1

I use repo-ck and it is up-to-date.

Graysky, thank you so much for this  Repo-ck, installed ck-sandybridge on my asus n75.
I gained more than 1 hour battery life, from 2- to more than 3 hour, and the fan actually spins down down.)

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

Almost the same problem with usrjames here, entering gcc -c -Q -march=native --help=target | grep march gave me this:

  -march=                               corei7-avx

and according to this I should install patch for sandybridge while my CPU is ivy.
So I installed ivybridge and my audio over HDMI stopped working. Had to go to default kernel again. I though i should report it here, may be you can check whats wrong.
Here is the output of head /proc/cpuinfo :

processor       : 0
vendor_id       : GenuineIntel
cpu family      : 6
model           : 58
model name      : Intel(R) Core(TM) i3-3220 CPU @ 3.30GHz
stepping        : 9
microcode       : 0x12
cpu MHz         : 1600.000
cache size      : 3072 KB

And this is the output of pacman -Q | grep linux :

archlinux-keyring 20130127-1
linux 3.7.4-1
linux-api-headers 3.7.4-1
linux-ck-ivybridge 3.7.5-2
linux-ck-ivybridge-headers 3.7.5-2
linux-firmware 20121118-1
util-linux 2.22.2-1

And by the way thanks for making the patches, I am also using bulldozer patch for my AMD CPU and its working great. Kudos to you mate.

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

Clearly that CPU is an ivy.  Dunno what the issue is; the pkgs I compile simple use the corresponding options in the .config file.  If your certain that the stock kernel or the ck-generic kernel fixes the sound issue, and that none else between boots is different, then the settings in the ivy package are likely causing the audio thing.  Are you sure it isn't muted or the liike?

Yes I am sure, that was the first thing I checked. I also tried running alsa mixer to check if the sound over hdmi is disables but it wasn't as soon as I switched to default kernel, sound was back. I didn't tried the ck-generic though, will try tonight and see if there is any difference.

I will guess that if the ARCH kernel works for you, the generic packages will as well.
