For those of you having problems with vesafb-tng using the mode you specify on the kernel commandline:

I'm having the same problem, but discovered that the mode I wanted was available if I did "fbset". In order to get my mode (1600x1200@70) at boot I had to change the default mode in my kernel config to match.

I don't know why the kernel isn't picking up on the commandline option, but you can at least get it to work automatically that way as a workaround.

Woot! I'll have a look at the mm patch to see how you got it stable, every time it accessed the net it froze on mine.

Thanks utpark :D

@MetatronX99 you need to do it everytime you restart X, if you're not a security freak and you're the only user of your computer you can chmod +s /usr/bin/renice and add renice -10 `pidof X` to your ~/.xinitrc before the exec line


I've found a different way to renice X: edit the file /etc/X11/startDM.sh and change the line
Code:
/sbin/start-stop-daemon --start --quiet --exec ${EXE}

to
Code:
/sbin/start-stop-daemon --start --quiet -N "-15" --exec ${EXE}


Then enable xdm at startup.

Cheers

PostPosted: Wed Oct 13, 2004 1:51 am    Post subject: Nicks scheduler is fux0red Reply with quote

Are there any known problems with nicks scheduler and hyperthreading??

I've got a kernel on my laptop that was patched up the wazzu to get bluetooth and reiser4 working for an external USB 2.0 HD (something like 2-6-8-gentoo-r3-reiser4-mh2) and it works fine unless you decide to shutdown without umounting the reiser4 drives (major kernel panic there)...

So I wanted a more stable resier4 kernel for my desktop.. I gave love a go, but the scheduler seems to be rather crap. X is unusable when *anything* is happening in the background -- whether it's an emerge running make -j2 or even just pdflatex running in user mode at nice -n 19.

I did the renice X thing, but whether it's at 0 or +19 or -19 seems to make no difference. And it's not just slow -- it's actually losing keystrokes and mouse clicks (especially when I've just typed a word that has repeating letters -- eg letters -> lters or worse).

I've backed off to 2.6.8-gentoo-r7 and everything runs swimmingly (except for reiser4 which doesn't exist..).

My pootah is a newish P4 3.2 GHz and the mobo has PCI Express running Marvell Yukon gigabit ethernet (sk98lin.ko had to be compiled ouside of the kernel tree) and a GeForce FX somethingorother (nvidia.ko seems to work OK).

So unless anyone has any suggestions, mine is

Vote [1] to ditch nick's scheduler.

Nearly the same here, only the hexadecimal value seems to change (a memory adress?) :

Same error here when trying to compile with vesafb-ng. Just the memory location is a different one. However it also worked with vesafb.
I'm using the gentoo-dev-sources (2.6.9-r1)

I got it to work with vesafb-tng:
I don't really know what the difference was, but I tried to compile everything into the kernel (I only have one module for my TV-card). (So if you use modules, maybe you have to put all the graphic modules into the modules.autoload.d/kernel-2.6 ?)
And after configuring I re-emerged svgalib (which had some problems compiling without a configuration file for the kernel).
Code:
USE="build" emerge svgalib

Then compiling the kernel and it did without problem. And finally I even got the framebuffer to work again.

Whats the best way to renice X every time X starts? I'm getting tired of doing it manually.

Oh and I would just like to say this is the best kernel I've used so far. Stable, fast, responsive. Thx alot.

Wow! Quite a performance difference! I was using 2.6.7-rc3-love2 and this is a lot faster.

One problem, I grabbed that nvidia ebuild and emerged it and the 6111 glx, but X won't start. I'm running X right now with the nv driver...

Here's what I get:

(==) Using config file: "/etc/X11/xorg.conf"

Using vt 7
(EE) NVIDIA(0): Failed to initialize the NVIDIA kernel module!
(EE) NVIDIA(0): *** Aborting ***
(EE) Screen(s) found, but none have a usable configuration.

Fatal server error:
no screens found

I can't get OSS (4Front OSS, not the free one) to work either.

I got the latest one and installed it, but after it compiles the module it can't load it.

--------------------------------------------------------
Building the OSS kernel module - please wait...
Failed to activate the driver
Probably caused by a technical problem.
See /usr/lib/oss/logs/soundon.log for more info.
ERROR: Module osslinux does not exist in /proc/modules


In the soundon log this is what happens:

Loading OSS/Linux module
insmod: error inserting '/usr/lib/oss/modules/osslinux': -1 Unknown symbol in module
insmod: error inserting '/usr/lib/oss/modules/osslinux': -1 Unknown symbol in module

Any ideas for this or the NVIDIA stuff?

Did you try this package from the main post.

nvidia ebuild (in case you didnt get for love 3).
