unofficial linux-ck repo with cpu optimized packages is ONLINE

Given the popularity of the linux-ck package, I have followed nous' lead and created an unofficial repo containing precompiled binary versions of the linux-ck and related packages for community use.  I wrote a wiki article that has instructions, available packages, etc.  Note that the repo contains a generic package and many CPU-specific optimized packages!  Please read the wiki page linked below for more details.

Enjoy!

Please keep this thread on topic!  Report only repo/packaging related problems here; open a new thread for non-repo related problems.

Links
Which CPU Optimized Package Set to Select?
Repo-ck Main Page - Simple html index of the repo.  Have a peek to see the unofficial BFS mascot!
Repo-ck Wiki Article - All you need to know about the repo... and more!
Repo-ck Statistics - Popularity of packages, which CPU is most popular, # of downloads, etc. in colorful graphs!
Repo-ck PKGBUILD archive -  Looking for an older version of linux-ck or nvidia-ck to build yourself?  Look no further.

UPDATE: 30-Apr-2016
I am also providing the x86_64 version of chromium-minimum for those who are interested.

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

+1, Currently using -pf kernel, but I only really want the -ck patchset and maybe bfq. 64-bit atom packages would be greatly appreciated here.

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

I obviously don't have a problem with this, but I wont be using it.

I like having my custom .config, so I'll always prefer to build the package myself.

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

@pogeymanz - right, the repo would only contain the ARCH defaults except with the ck1 patchset enabled.

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

Got it - I'll add a kernel26-ck-atom for i686.  Working on the bash script now to batch compile these guys.  Ran into a little snag with sed but I think I'm around it now.  I'll post after I've tested the various flavors on several machines.  Later today hopefully.

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

OK!  I got it I think.  I have built up the following:

x86_64: generic, atom, core2, nvidia-ck
i686: generic, k7, p4, atom, nvidia-ck

I tested the k7, atom (x86_64), generic (x86_64), and core2 (x86_64) and everything seems fine - installs makes images, boots, etc.  I'd like to have a few more peeps give them a try before I post the server to the entire community (just in case I f*ck-up something).  If you're interested, please shoot me an email and I'll forward the repo info to you.  If a few other people can verify that everything is okay, I will post here in the forums for all to use.

Thanks!

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

just out of curiosity, is the default config 1000 Hz?
I'm asking b/c I think you need a multiple of 1000 Hz for virtualbox
What do you guys find works well?

The ARCH defaults are tickless (dynamic ticks) and 300 Hz.  I use them w/ vbox just fine... dunno where you got that 1000 Hz advice smile

You can check it via:

zcat /proc/config.gz > config

Then inspect the config in an editor.  You can always build it yourself with whatever options...

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

Tested out your i686 kernel26-ck and kernel26-ck-atom packages, without any problems.

Thanks for putting this up, didn't mind the compiling and stripping things out, but having I'll probably keep using the more generic package if it's available.

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

I agree, great idea.  Since the beginning, I've wanted just -ARCH plus ck patches.  I'll don't even need the {nvidia,lirc}-ck (been just rebuilding nvidia-beta and repo's lirc for now, works fine), but no worries.

Let me know if you want any help on the bash smile.

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

@brisbin - I think I got it actually.... my main concern is whether or not the packages are sound (I believe that they are). Please install the right package for your hardware and let me know.

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

@graysky; works perfectly (including vbox @ 300 Hz)
(using P4 build here)
Many Thanks

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

Thanks for the feedback, all.  I can add other CPU-specific builds upon request (I just wanna be sure people will actually use them if I take the time to compile them).

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

Atom (x86_64) is working nicely for me.

The only hitch was eth1 changing to wlan0, which confused me for a minute or two (not sure why - brcm80211 instead of wl, maybe?)

@kinhodder - dunno - that should be setup in /etc/rc.conf in yer modules array.  Odd.
