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

@dr-kart - Not sure which CPU that maps to but we can figure it out easy enough.

1) Post the output of

$ cat /proc/cpuinfo

2) Post the output of

$ gcc -c -Q -march=native --help=target

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

@dr-kart - CPU Family 6 is definitely Core2 and your -march= and -mtune= both point to that as well.  Therefore you should be able to safely use the core2 optimized packages for this processor.

Note that I am in the process or building the 2.6.38.7-1 version of kernel26-ck for all arches and CPU flavors now.  If you install from the repo you will get the "unstable" 2.6.39-1 version.  The build just started to it'll take a good 2-3 h before all 11 kernels, nvidia-ck's, and broadcom ck's are built and uploaded.

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

Thanks for downgrading to 2.6.38 version I think its a bit more mature, plus I have some weird modules I dont like to compile again.

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

@twilight - you're welcome.  Guess I should have posted here as well.  I put it on the AUR page and in the changelog on the wiki.

graysky wrote:

Retro-bump to 2.6.38.7-1

Following a great discussion that took place in the AUR, and after considerable thought, I felt that providing the community with a stable kernel was the most important factor and have downgraded the PKG to the 2.6.38 series but patched the PKG to uses the latest and greatest version of BFS which is v0.404. In CK's own words, "It [BFS 404] should be perfectly fine. Only 2.6.39 is unstable, not BFS 404."  The repo is now populated with 2.6.38.7-1 and the matching nvidia-ck and broadcom-wl-ck packages as well.  I build the kernel PKG with the epoch=1 setting in the PKGBUILD so pacman should automatically grab it even though it is numerically less than 2.6.39 with no fuss.

http://ck-hack.blogspot.com/2011/05/263 … table.html

As soon as this flush plugging bullshit gets sorted out, I will of course update the PKG.

Note: you may still build 2.6.39-1 if you wish. Find the needed files on the AUR.git for this package: http://pkgbuild.com/git/aur.git/log/kernel26-ck

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

Is there any chance of getting architecture specific lts versions? I'm after a core2 version and an AMD k10 version. I currently compile from AUR, but just came across this.

Also with the broadcom-wl & nvidia modules [for core2]

Thanks for putting in the hard work on this!

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

@hd - sorry dude, space limitations on the server cause me to be frugal about the number of packages I can host at a given time and I'm nearing the limit with the current set of offerings.  I would love to add an archive for example that would contain the last 3 or 4 versions of all the packages as well as to add cpu-specific archs for the lts package family.

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

@dgr48 - I think you found a bug in pacman 3.5.2?  The md5sum for the file is identical in all three places: file on my local disk, inside kernel26-ck.db.tar.gz, and in the downloaded file.

Short answer is don't delete it and do this:

$ sudo pacman -U  /var/cache/pacman/pkg/nvidia-ck-core2-270.41.19-2-i686.pkg.tar.xz

EDIT: I opened a flyspray on this.  Thanks for pointing it out!

On my local disk:

$ md5sum nvidia-ck-core2-270.41.19-2-i686.pkg.tar.xz
da24306220bda05db5a2ca2fe1d9fc6d  nvidia-ck-core2-270.41.19-2-i686.pkg.tar.xz

In kernel26-ck.db.tar.gz for i686:

%MD5SUM%
da24306220bda05db5a2ca2fe1d9fc6d

When I download it from the repo:

$ sudo pacman -S nvidia-ck-core2

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

Hi graysky,

I've found something missing from the wiki page (https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/Kernel26-ck).
On   

does not have the configuration of the mkinitcpio.conf/modules, so the append "elevator=bfq" can work.

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

@dgr48 - can you remove the package and try to install it from the repo again?  It now works for me?!  If it doesn't work for you, please post to the flyspray ticket https://bugs.archlinux.org/task/24518 following Dan's step.

Thanks for helping to troubleshoot!

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

@graysky: as I stated before, its all ok now, installed from the repo.

One suggestion, in the package of the kernel, couldn't be added the file /etc/mkinitcpio-ck.conf (for the CK kernels) so we can have one mkinit configuration different of the kernel26 (Arch Kernels).

/etc/mkinitcpio.d/kernel26-ck.preset :
ALL_config="/etc/mkinitcpio-ck.conf"

/etc/mkinitcpio-ck.conf:
MODULES="bfq-iosched"


Kind regards,

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

@dgr48 - I could make that edit but I'm afraid that it would cause more trouble than it's worth.  I think I'll keep it as KISS as possible since it is after all an Arch package smile

Plus, we who don't use it might not want unnecessary modules cluttering our initrd. Not that I think it'd make any significant difference, but still.

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

@graysky Great job so far - I (actually represent a bunch of machines here) have been a long-time user of your repo with almost no issues.

Can we hope to see catalyst-ck package (https://aur.archlinux.org/packages.php?ID=29111) on your repo? It would make kernel updates perfectly pain-free. Hopefully this kmod only package won't take much space. smile

(I know, I know, Catalyst is bad, just in case. It's no good for GNOME3. But still, it keeps those laptops cool - often a basic requirement for mobile computing.)

I don't think that's necessary. There is catalyst versions that you can compile the fglrx for the various kernels you want to use. So is completely pain-free. At least  I always recompiled my fglrx module without any problem.

@shanto - I would but I only have nvidia machines here so I wouldn't be able to properly test the packages.

@franz - are you sure?  This is from the .PKGINFO from that package:

Which PKG version does your machine indicate as current?  It should be the -4 release.

$ pacman -Sl kernel26-ck | grep broadcom

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

I got this error when installing broadcom-wl-ck-core2:

WARNING: Couldn't open directory /lib/modules/2.6.38-ck: No such file or directory FATAL: Could not open /lib/modules/2.6.38-ck/modules.dep.temp for writing: No such file or directory 

and here's the output you asked for:

$ pacman -Sl kernel26-ck | grep broadcom
