Re: Making Arch Faster[solved]

Due to some exams I have to make I wasn't able to look in here for some time and the discussion seems to have advanced a lot.

So I saw something about a fast kernel, faster than the normal arch kernel, called the CK kernel.

But since I am not really a professional in Linux but want to learn as much as I can I  am asking what exactly is  a CK kernel ?

Thx in advance I appreciate to be in such a good community, as the arch community is, borisb

Re: Making Arch Faster[solved]

It's not a "ck kernel" in the sense you're probably thinking.

It's just a largely patched kernel known as a patch set with a name. And usually an added sufix to the version string.

Really, I've used just about every patchset there is. I've ultimately landed on my own.

Don't expect to feel too much, if any of a difference.

I don't know what it is. But every time someone says something makes a HUGE difference in desktop use. I never feel the difference.

People told me using gentoo make my desktop faster. I took that bait when I was a newbie. I didn't feel the difference.

I was told using the 2.5 unstable kernel would make my desktop faster. No go.

I tried the ck and cko patches. I didn't feel a difference.

Re: Making Arch Faster[solved]

How do you guys get the latest kernel source patched with CKO patch? I am trying to compile 2.6.11.11 with the latest CKO patch using dibble's PKGBUILD. Then when I try to makepkg, makepkg gives errors like this:

Reversed (or previously applied) patch detected!  Skipping patch.
1 out of 1 hunk ignored -- saving rejects to file security/keys/key.c.rej

and finally makepkg fails.

Here is the patch applying part of the PKGBUILD:

patch -Np1 -i ../patch-2.6.11-cko5 || return 1

EDIT: I also tried to leave the patch to bz2 file and let pacman unzip it. That did not help either. Tried also to use older kernel version (2.6.11.7) - still no luck.

CK includes .11 already. Patch -cko onto a plain 2.6.11 kernel, not 2.6.11.11.

Re: Making Arch Faster[solved]

CK (& most likely CKO) applies on 2.6.x directly, not on 2.6.x.y.
It contains all the updates made in .y.

I find that rather helpful. No need to download extra kernel archives or patch kernel manually before applying CK(O). Get the .x kernel version and apply the latest CK(O). Very easy. Well... I haven't done this yet, but it's planned.
