@danone:
what was it with your ps/2-keyboard? how did you fix it?

Have you checked the 'input device' section, there is a 'Mouse Interface' and a 'mice' section.

May be worth looking at to confirm you have the right options selected.

Thanx for your reply.

Yes. Mice and PS/2 mouse is checked. The "Mouse Interface" section is disabled (---).
What do i have to (de)activate to use the Mouse Interface?

Hmmm I cant compile it without ACPI; get the same error like someone already noted on page 1. Since I'm on SMP, I never used ACPI. It compiles fine with, so lets see if it boots :-)

OK. I switched over to development-sources-2.6.7-rc2 and my mouse runs fine. So this PS/2-Problem has to be love-sources specific.

Hmm I have some questions about the scheduler (IO) and CPU.

dmesg | grep cfq --> Gives me nothing
dmesg | grep sched --> Using anticipatory io scheduler

So, please correct me, for me, it looks like if Im using the "default" (?) IO scheduler. How can I change that?

How can I see what CPU scheduler I'm using? I understand that I cant choose between different CPU scheduler, so I "should" be using Nick's. Is there any way to "see" this?

Sorry for that basic questions!

CFQ is a disk latacy timer..it reduces the disk latacy you change it in

General Setup
-->Configure standard kernel features (for small systems) (EMBEDDED)
---> disable NO Sched,deadline,anticip..enable only CFQ Sched

A slightly easier way is to leave all the schedulers installed in the kernel and add (in grub)
Code:
elevator=cfq

or
Code:
elevator=io


Choose whichever one you want, check it on boot by using the dmesg grep as before. Also a good way to see if there is actually a difference between them on your machine. If you use lilo, I'm not sure how to add it to the kernel parameters but I'm sure it's similar.

The anticipatory scheduler is the default. You can change it to CFQ with "elevator=cfq" on the kernel command line.

You can't change the CPU scheduler - only one is possible. The default O(1) scheduler is overwritten with nicksched here, so you don't need to do anything to use it.

They must have changed it. Of course I have been away since the 2.6.4 loves, but the default used to be cfq.

What do you mean by trouble?

If you mean that it's a bit flakey on the new kernel, then yes it is, or do you mean it doesn't patch properly? I had no problems, can you post any errors you are getting?

Unless you have fixed any of the known problems...in which case I'm sure OneofOne would love to have the patch 8O

@PickledOnion
no the patch from OneofOne applies fine. But after some time with his patch I cannot work anymore - I couldn't do anything right just a reset was the solution. So I use an day older snapshot with patches from the mailinglist - and until now - it works for me;-)

@ evermind.

Interesting. I am using the following patch:

reiser4-2004.06.02-19.39-linux-2.6.7-rc1-mm1.diff

There were two minor rejects, and one PageActive to rename, but I have had absolutely no problems at all, I'm not sure what patch OneofOne used, I do know he made a lot of corrections in it, but I had the same experience as you :(

I don't think the big changes in mm are helping matters either.

I used reiser4-2004.06.03-19.37-linux-2.6.7-rc1-mm1.diff.gz and that patch you are using is useless since the enum already starts from 0x0.
about the PS2 problems i didnt know about it, it's most likely a mm2 thing (bk-input).
the reiser4 patch actually works BUT it freezes randomly and doesn't mount reiser4 / so it's useless.
@DaFire using ext2 is a bad bad idea, specially with reiser4, newer reiser4 patches might randomaly lock the computer and ext2 HATES when that happen.
You might want to use speedy-sources (on my mirror) for a stable reiser4.
@eikke hey, you gotta give me a share of the profit you get!!:twisted: :twisted:

yes that patch is useless for the patch you used but I used reiser4-2004.06.02-19.39-linux-2.6.7-rc1-mm1.diff and on top of this I applied the posted "enum-patch"

I used this snapshot because it works better for me than reiser4-2004.06.03-19.37-linux-2.6.7-rc1-mm1.diff and I no longer get freezes/ or sth. similar

@OneOfOne

Look closely at evermind's patch. It is NOT useless. The 0x4 is missing, therefore it is not identical.

hi,
love & reiser4patch => super!
patching without fuzz, compiling flawless, all good :-)
Nice to be back again.

btw: what do you folks put into your "adding compiler-options"?
I used "-march=athlon-xp -O2 -pipe -fomit-frame-pointer -funroll-loops -msse -ftracer -fweb" with gcc-3.4, runs nice, but i don´t know if anything changed to the original options ;-)
