@steel300

what about update DXR3 patch? its little old...
newest versions have more functions and are
more stable...


Do you possibly have a link again? Preferably one to a patch and not an external module build I'll add the newer ones to love-sources as well.

Steel since your still getting lot's of questions about installing the love, why not put a link to my howto on the first post, along with the changelog? It's a little hard to find nowadays.


I just put it my sig. Good idea though.

For anyone who wants it
Code:

# script to update love sources
# variables
WD=/usr/local/portage/sys-kernel/love-sources

#code
cd $WD
echo "Remove Old ebuilds"
rm -f *
wget http://www.public.iastate.edu/~jpcox/
awk  -F">" '/.ebuild/ {print $2}' index.html > 1.tmp
sed -e 's/"//g' 1.tmp > 2.tmp
sed -e 's/ <A HREF=//' 2.tmp > 3.tmp
sed 's/^/http:\/\/www.public.iastate.edu\/~jpcox\//' 3.tmp > get.txt
wget -i get.txt -q
echo "Remove temp files"
rm *.tmp index.html get.txt
z=0
echo "I downloaded the following ebuilds"
ls -r1t *.ebuild
for i in `ls -r1t *.ebuild`;
        do
                if  (( $z==0 )) ; then ebuild $i digest;fi
                z=1
        done
echo "Done."

Feel free to play/tidy/ignore.....
edit, tidied up a little, added a couple of comments...and again

Thanks Evil Dark Archon for the link to Walken - you posted that before could. And as a side note I read the https://forums.gentoo.org/viewtopic.php?p=1019489#1019489 posts. (LIK) and I agree.. IMHO, Kurt killed himeslf because he became what he hated the most. A sellout. (Yes, I'm from Seattle)

Thanks for the reply. I am exploring the issue now. I have not searched extensively yet, but is there a kernel option that can be given at boot to enable disable preemt?

I disabled it and have been exploring my performance on a p4m 1.8ghz laptop with 512mb ram... Inital nbench scores were higher, but not enough to warrant a "wooo hoooo". Interestingly, the desktop experience is the same.

Disabling preempt will increase performance, but only if you're running a few system hogs, if you run more system hogs, you'll run into jitteryness, pauses in music, etc. Preempt was designed with desktop performance in mind. Try running a kernel without it enabled while playing music and playing ET at the same time. I can almost guarantee pauses in music.

Preempt divies up CPU time a bit more fairly to IO bound and multimedia applications a bit more fairly from what I've seen. I do alot of shit at once, so I keep it enabled.

I would just like to say I successfully compiled my first love sources with genkernel and I'm definitely rocking like ninja. However, I noticed I'm still using the anticipatory scheduler. Is this normal? or is there a way to change it?

I compiled love5 last night, and all's good here. I noticed nobody's answered the earlier question about why Xorg should be reniced (or what the point of it is).

Finally, I've never been able to get the CLE266 drm modules to compile, and even on this release, it's still the same. There was 1 post saying it didn't work a few kernel revisions ago, but I've not been able to find anything since. Is there a known issue with that module? If not, I'll do another kernel recompile so I can report the error messages.

No, not at all. That's the strange thing, everything runs more smooth without preempt...

The anticipatory scheduler is the default. If you want to use CFQ, put 'elevator=cfq' on your kernel command line in grub.conf.

Sorry, but I currently have to agree with floggy. I am seeing the same results. Unless something is silly with my setup/config. I see smoother performance without preemt. Granted I am still playing around. As far as music skips, that disappeared a while ago. In my case, I really think alsa cleared that up not preempt.

It doesn't matter. Those that can benefit from preempt -- cool...

Just added to my .bashrc:
Code:
function update-love
{
    pushd /usr/local/portage/sys-kernel/love-sources
    rm *.ebuild
    for i in $(lynx -dump http://www.public.iastate.edu/~jpcox/ |grep ebuild |awk '{print $2}'); do
        wget ${i}
    done
    popd
}

Or, you could have
Code:
alias fetch-love="rm *.ebuild; for i in \$(lynx -dump http://www.public.iastate.edu/~jpcox/ |grep ebuild |awk '{print \$2}'); do wget \${i}; done"
