Can anyone help with my TOI issues? As I said before, I can suspend, but when resuming, I get either a blank screen (text mode) or a black screen with a flickering cursor (X)...

Everything was working fine with 2.6.22-kamikazex and prior.
If i can't fix it, itll prob force me to downgrade to .22.


I'm experiencing something similar: sometimes the mouse movement seems not that smooth at all even if the cpu is running idle. I'll try turning off new features like air group CPU scheduler since I do not know what might causing this...

I have experienced that too. When I compile something and the cpu is very high load the mouse is... jumping. After remove the Fair group CPU scheduler the problem is gone.


Confirmed, it happens to me is well.

Have the same problem, with python and net-tools :/

&& www servers have problems on reiser4 with this patch. For example, i try to download txt, html, png and others files i have error
Code:
19:22:54 (0.00 B/s) - Connection closed at byte 0. Ponawianie próby.
but php on mod_fastcgi work fine.

Its reiser4 error or this reiser4 patch from kamikaze ? I use gentoo-sources 2.6.23 with reiser4patch from kamikaze.

Sorry about my english.

only reiser4 users? :twisted: anyone who run a working ext4 -o mballoc root?I can't, it looks broken. however, data=writeback + delalloc increased a lot my root's performances

There have been some changes in 2.6.23 (sendfile() function) that affect reiser4.

Quote:
2.13. Use splice in the sendfile() implementation
Splice is a innovative I/O method which was added in Linux 2.6.17, based in a in-kernel buffer that the user has control over, where "splice()" moves data to/from the buffer from/to an arbitrary file descriptor with splice(), while "tee()" copies the data in one buffer to another, ie: it "duplicates" it, or vmsplice() to splice the data from/to user memory. Because the in-kernel buffer isn't really copied from one address space to another, it allows to move data from/to a fd without an extra copy (ie, "zero-copy").
For the particular case of sending the data from a file descriptor to a fd socket, there's been always the sendfile() syscall. splice() however is a generic mechanism, not just limited to what sendfile(). In other words, sendfile() is just a small subset of what splice can do, splice obsoletes it. In Linux 2.6.23, the sendfile() mechanism implementation is killed, but the API and its functionality is not removed, it's instead implemented internally with the splice() mechanisms.
Because sendfile() is critical for many programs, specially for static web servers and FTPs, performance regressions could happen (and performance improvements!) and the kernel hackers would really like to hear about them both in linux-kernel@vger.kernel.org and/or other usual communication channels.

Testing preview version of kamikaze3 with "acpi-release-20070116", "sata-an" and "sata-alpm" patches. Working fine atm.

And the best of all: only ~50 wakeups per second (NEW RECORD!)

I have one general question about the patches. How can I exclude some patch from the big patchset. For example, how can I exclude the three shed-cfs patches from the kamikaze2? Or how can I exclude the ck patch from the kamikaze2? What is the procedure?
I am asking this because I have faced another problem with kamikaze2 and I want to try some "custom" kamikaze2 patchset. The problem is with the .avi files. They skips for a second every about a minute. :(

You can download broken-out patches, and apply only the ones you want to use, or apply all of them, and then

Code:
patch -p1 -R < patch-you-don't-want.patch


You need to download the patches you don't want though.

This was my first guess, but did not work. Then I decided to ask because obviously this is a wrong approach.

Code:

# tar jxf linux-2.6.23.tar.bz2
# cp linux-2.6.23-kamikaze2 linux-2.6.23/
# cp ckpatches-2.6.23.patch linux-2.6.23/
# patch -p1 < linux-2.6.23-kamikaze2

...(cut many lines here. All goes fine)...

For reiser4 users - two patches which can be applied on top of 2.6.23-kamikaze2. I believe the first one is quite important. Used it for a few weeks without problems. One hunk fails in the second one, but can be manually applied.
[PATCH] reiser4: fix readpage_unix_file
[patch] reiser4: do not allocate struct file on stack

I started with vista/linux dual boot (and got rid of vista due to personal dislike and a total vista crash), windows never reached more than 2:30 battery life, linux reaches up to 2:40. Powertop/Lesswats did a great job in improving linux, your battery will now last longer in linux. At least with the latest kernel.

So how about sending out some spam? "Enlarge your battery life! Install linux! Instand download availabel at ...." would be a good topic...

Thx! This patches solved my problem with emerge python when portage_tmpdir is on reiser4
Code:
# mount |grep dropzone2
/dev/md0 on /mnt/dropzone2 type reiser4 (rw)
/mnt/dropzone2 on /var/tmp/portage type none (rw,bind)


But, www-servers still have problem and send '0 bytes' on static files, php under mod_fastcgi work.

I'm changing from the old server to a new and faster server (Intel Xeon 1,86GHz with 4 processors, 4GB RAM, 2TB hard disk...).
And there's a new domain name available: http://waninkoko.es and http://kamikaze.waninkoko.es

Please excuse my dumb question: What is "-o mballoc", can I use it with jfs too? (Never understand the hype for reiserfs, jfs is the second best performer in every single discipline meaning the best over all tests).

Thanks and best regards

no you cant. each fs has its own set of mount options. jfs flags are here: /usr/src/linux/Documentation/filesystems/jfs.txt

which baselayout version are you using? I tried only with baselayout-2.0.0_rc5, I should make a second attempt with rc4
edit: tested also with older baselayout versions. it hangs at 'remounting r\w'
