Okay, another salvo of contest

I was worried that my boot options (vga=normal in particular) weren't disabling everything as per Con's suggestions.. so I removed framebuffer, acpi, and apm from the kernel entirely and reran contest with some kernels. Things are a bit better all around and love3 is comparable to love2 again (and in most cases is a bit ahead. due to futexes? I dunno if that would apply here).

Nope, Futexes shouldn't affect contest results - I would crack it up to statistical flutuations.

Note that -love now consistently wins process_load on time and the mem_load gap is closing - and we still barely kick -mm's ass in dbench :)

I noticed that love-sources got a mention in this weeks GWN - so to all outsiders - please go easy on the server - it's my schools and I wouldn't want to get kicked out of school for misusing the network ressources. So if at all possible please avoid downloading anything from the server during the hours of 8am to 5pm GMT+1, out of respect for my fellow students, who might want to use the connection for more... educationally apropiate purposes, during the schools opening hours.

btw. kudos goes to the GWN headline, floored me completely...

Nice job on that, btw. First GWN, then the world! or something like that.

Other news. mm2's out, will throw into contest today/tonight. And an AH HA! @ this
Code:
+acpi_off-fix.patch

 Fix `acpi=off' command line handling

I guess it's good I just did away with it entirely...

mm2 doesn't have any scheduler changes (well, a couple things are dropped because they're redundant...), but I'll bench it anyway because I'm just wasting cycles otherwise. ;)

Gotta go, class

OK, for poor Love's school, I have setup a mirror, on my university sponsered 100 mbit connection. First real test my server gets, so I get to see if I screwed something up ;)

It would be really neat to see the love-sources as the ~x86 equiv. of gentoo-sources in portage. Since they seem to be not so in to cutting edge stuff these days (and I know you've got your issues with the devs :) ), it probably won't happen, but still...

If I knew python, I'd be tempted to work up an extension to emerge sync to allow a sync to a /usr/portage tree and a /usr/local/portage tree at the same time (say if SYNC_LOCAL_PORTAGE was set in make.conf or something). That would make a lot of people happy, but I guess we'd have to convince a few mirrors to provide a bmg-esque tree. Dunno. Just typing out loud. Congrats on the GWN mention.

thanks, but it's no so much the connection I'm worried about - it's more making people aware that someone might rely on the bw on the other end - so if you can, delay your download so it doesn't interfer with their work.

I think it's par of common respect.

Well, my connection doesn't interfere with any real work, so they're free to download from me.

i could host it too, but from a private webserver?
no one will be bothered by it then.. (and it would
be an honor to me to host it lol).

but perhaps two mirrors (or even the one by love-
child is enough for now eh :)

Breakmygentoo already mirrors the patchsets but I haven't got commit rights for BMG - so the ebuilds are never up to date and the tarballs aren't either.

So if I could get an account somewhere, I could upload both ebuilds and tarballs so both where up to date, on release day. Much easier for everyone.

ICC patch
everything I forgot


I just tried to compile with icc. I changed all occurences of gcc and g++ in the makefile to
icc. It dies with the following error:

Code:
  CHK     include/linux/version.h
  HOSTCC  scripts/fixdep
ld: unrecognized option '--compile_dependencies'
ld: use the --help option for usage information
make[1]: *** [scripts/fixdep] Error 1
make: *** [scripts] Error 2

when doing "make V=1"

Anybody who successfully compiled a kernel with icc?
What are the step we have to do?

Lovechild, could you tell, where you found those ICC patches?

Oh well, I think we have to wait for icc 8.0, which should be out any day now.

- thanx

I might be able to get something hooked up.

I can give you an account on my home server, but that's only got 32KB/sec upload. I've got a script to sync a directory on my home server to a directory on my webspace. (unlimited bandwith, 155 mbit UL, but only 50MB space. I dont use hardly any of it anyway, so it would be okay to use 25MB or so for mirroring your patches)

Anyway, if that sounds good, let me know.

This might belong somewhere else, but I was trying to use love sources on my desktop for some testing with reiser4 and I am having troubles getting it to boot. I already use it full time on my laptop, with everyting working like a charm (cpufreq, acpi, synaptics touchpad, usb, firewire, reiser4(not root),...)

It always hangs when initializing the ps2 mouse. I don't have a ps2 mouse, only a usb one used through usb hid. So I was going to try to disable ps2 mouse, however there is no option to do this in the config.

I tried unsetting CONFIG_INPUT_MOUSEDEV and CONFIG_INPUT_MOUSEDEV_PSAUX in the config file, but no luck there, it only reenabled them when I built it. The only way to disable mousedev is to disable CONFIG_INPUT which causes the dreaded vfs no root found error.

How can I fix this?

Adding "pci=noacpi" to your boot options may fix that.

Got the ICC patches from an intel engineer who posts on lkml - the patches were posted there - I assume it works, but I don't use ICC personally, so no way to be sure.

mouse error:
Try disabling everything mouse related in menuconfig and see if it hangs - we need to narrow down the problem, if it's ACPI related then you need to disable it for now still someone fixes that very broken code (hard to do right since there's the open standard by Intel and the closed enhanced one by Microsoft - guess which one the hardware is designed to use... mmmmmm *d'oh*).

I am excited to try this, but I have a quick question.

Do I emerge the love sources from BMG, then apply the patch?

Yes, I had this same problem with the MM 2.6 kernel.....try adding the above line to grub.

No, you emerge the development-sources from portage (or just download the 2.6.0-test5.tar.bz and unpack) , and _then_ apply the patch.

Ahh. Ok

Thanks.

EDIT:

Excuse my ignorance, but I cannot seem to find a download for 2.6.x kernels....only pathces. Can I get the 2.5.x kernel and patch that?

Hey, just checking in.. was busy Monday night, and yesterday I got bit by the gcc-3.3.1-r2 bug and spent the day fixing that on two systems... So in short, I just downloaded mm2 now. I might be able to get contest done before class.

? What bug? Might this explain the segfaults from stuff I compiled with it?

I think that's pretty much what the bug is - anything you compile with it segfaults when run. See https://forums.gentoo.org/viewtopic.php?t=84803

i compiled various packages with gcc-3.3.1-r2
yesterday which ran without problems.. though
this morning i tried module-init-tools which did
mess up, so i am back to gcc-3.3.1-r1 to prevent
further problems.

my love3 kernel worked when compiled with gcc-
3.3.1-r2 though :)
