You don`t need to patch anything, just get the ebuild, emerge it and you`ll have everything done.

Working great here too. Even bootsplash, weird :?

A question: do I need to pass some kernel option on boot to use nick's sched or is it default?

The love-source is build so
Base : 2.6.6
increment patch : 26.7.-rc1
then 2.6.7-mm1
than love

if you download the full 2.6.7-rc1 vanilla it wont work there are diffs between incremntal and full..shouldn't be but they are:-)

@LAsk
Nicksched is on by default.
times before there was the elv-select patch where you could chose at boot time.
Maybe it works now without elv-select and you only net the image script:-)

This one is rock solid, bootsplash works excellent and the whole pc feels much more stable. Thanks for maintaining the love-sources!

No no no no no!
elv-select was for switching I/O schedulers (CFQ, AS, etc) at run-time. Without it, you had to specify which you wanted at boot. Nicksched is a CPU scheduler, controlling the allocation of processor time to processes. It is always on, since it overwrites the standard 2.6 scheduler.

Thanks for sorting things out. :D

This one is working really well :)

I'm using it on a NF7-s r2.0 (nforce2) with APIC, IO-APIC and ACPI without any hassle :)

I'm wondering about one thing though... Can we expect version 1.0.5 of Alsa in the next release? :wink:

Hello,

I've a problem with kernel parameters on grub. The 2.6.7-rc1-love1 kernel
don't see both "idebus=66" and "idebus=33". Why?

Thank you.

Love the love sources! havn't had much problem with them at all, but I have got a somewhat newb question here. With all these l33t patches and hacks, I'm not certain I'm turning on all the features that'd give me the best speed. Is there anywhere that outlines the best options to compile into the kernel? so I can get even more speed out of the love sources?

I been experincing some odd problems with 2.6.7 and KDE and nVidia.
fonts not right. unable to shut down KDE right. UT2004Demo will crash the entire computer on quit. things like that.
going back to 2.6.6-rc3-love1 fixed it all immediatly.

I do not specify an I/O scheduler at when loading the kernel. Is a scheduler used by default? If not, how do I enable one? Thanks.

If you didn't have an I/O scheduler running, you wouldn't be able to access any disks. The default in 2.6 is AS (anticipatory); if you append 'elevator=cfq' to your kernel command line (in grub.conf), it'll use the CFQ (Complete Fair Queueing) scheduler. Some say CFQ is far better for a desktop, some prefer AS. Take your pick; I'm pretty much undecided.

Sometimes people search and don't find what they want, or aren't sure. Other times they don't have the time to sit and sort through the results for what they want. Don't be so sarcastic towards the guy for asking a simple question, especially one such as that. :roll: Nothing wrong with asking questions :wink:

Looks like I'll have to wait for my next love hit. I have portage on reiser4. (So far it seems perfect.)

It would be nice to have a bit more consistancy in feature support

I hung back a while before setting up R4 partition because there were reliability doubts. Finally the last couple of love kernels seemed to have it working properly and cooperating with other stuff, so I went for it and committed my portage tree to R4.

Now it's out again. Annoying.


Looking forward to the next offering.
