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

New release is out and up.

13-Feb-2011 kernel26-ck 2.6.37-7

Includes ck2 patchset not ck1 patchset. From ck's blog:

"I've put up a small updated -ck version for 2.6.37. There are only 2 changes: 1. The build fix for it not compiling with CPU HOTPLUG disabled, and 2. I've dropped the patch called mm-make_swappiness_really_mean_it.patch . This second patch broke a while back and I never noticed because I had swap disabled, sorry. It works better with it disabled. Note that the ubuntu packages I recently made available include this change which I quietly snuck in, but I will make ck2 packages officially available just to avoid confusion wink If you've built your own 2.6.37-ck1 then I recommend upgrading only if you have swap enabled on your machine (which most people still do). Alternatively if you built it with CPU_HOTPLUG enabled just to make it build, then you _can_ upgrade to this version to build with it disabled but you won't notice a difference with the feature disabled - your kernel will only be slightly smaller. It might be a few nanoseconds faster.."

Hi graysky

I have just been wondering how are your kernel26-ck 2.6.37-x related to the default Kernel26-2.6.37-x.

Do you optimize on the default Kernel and then just add ck eg. (kernel26 2.6.37-3  --> kernel26-ck 2.6.37-3) so the revision numbers are the same ?

or

Are the revision numbers independent of the default Kernel, eg. a new number for every update you do

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

Hi graysky,


Thanks a lot for your work. Arch's community definitely owes you a box of beer smile

Just found ck's repo, it is a very cool idea. It is better then compiling for a few hours a new kernel.
There is a small issue for me. Could we fix the following thing:

:: binutils and binutils-multilib are in conflict. Remove binutils-multilib? [y/N] n

I have binutils from the multilib repo, but the kernel wants to replace it with the usual binutils.

I am trying to install the one for core2.

install binutils-multilib-2.21-4 from [multilib-testing] for now. i think it will be moved to multilib repo soon anyway.

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

The other thing I can do is to remove the deps for those two packages... technically, they are in stable and Archers keep their systems up-to-date... wait.  Scratch that. make no assumptions.  Upon reflection, I'll keep them in for a month or so.

In case folks are wondering, 2.6.37.1 hit [testing] but the new code doesn't play well with the ck2 patchset.  I email hador who has fixed these in the past.  Stay tuned for an upload once he works his magic!

Not sure, try inspecting the output of "cat /proc/cpuinfo" and google search the family and stepping to find out.

To all - repo populated with the new 2.6.37.1 release.  Sync and enjoy.

Post the output of these two commands to pastebin and give us the pastebin links here:

$ cat /proc/cpuinfo

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

Hmm... I'm no expert, but according to this:

Pentium M-based Mobile Celerons
Dothan-1024
A 90 nm Celeron M with half of the L2 cache of the 90 nm Dothan Pentium Ms (twice the L2 cache of the 130 nm Celeron Ms, though), and, like its predecessor, lacking SpeedStep. The first Celeron Ms that supports the XD bit was released in January 2005, in general any Celeron M released after that supports the XD bit. There is also a 512 KB low voltage version that was used in the early ASUS Eee PC models.
In Intel's "Family/Model/Stepping" scheme, Dothan Celeron Ms and Pentium Ms are family 6, model 13 and their Intel product code is 80536.

Doesn't say anything about being P4 based.  This isn't definitive though.

If you have the standard Arch kernel installed as well as a flavor of kernel26-ck you could download the p4 specific packages and try to boot into them.  If you get a kernel panic, just reboot into the Arch kernel, remove them, and install the generic ones.
