Why have you downgraded mapped-watermark?
The current has only one sysctl more (enabled by default) - hard maplimit,
which should reduce swap usage after large file operations.
Of course, as it is a sysctl, it is easily turned on/off in /etc/sysctl.conf.

Because Con downgraded it for stability reasons I think. Look in the ck9 changelog.

Should be Staircase...

Trying yet again to have one rock solid release I have a back to the

http://ck.kolivas.org/patches/2.6/2.6.8.1/2.6.8.1-ck9/

I dropped back to the last preempt-stable version of staircase: v8.2,
added the hard_mw patch which prevents ram swapping on very heavy disk
write loads, and removed the suse 9000 latency patch.

The server tuning is now modified to that of a file-server specific
tuning with mapped_watermark at 0.

Sorry about the inconvenience with ck8.

Cheers,
Con

Now, I only wait for port of Staircase 8.{0,2} to 2.6.9-rc3-mm1.
That release was awesome: no bugs, high speed and so on.
After 8.3 all the hell broke loose.

PostPosted: Mon Oct 04, 2004 9:17 pm    Post subject: klak-sources ebuild Reply with quote

I created an ebuild for these sources. I think that it will be compatible with future releases by just changing the name.

Note to jefklak: If you want, you can change this ebuild or post it on your site. Also, if it would be easier for you to maintain separate files, I can add all those individual sources to the ebuild.

How to use the ebuild:
1) Make sure you have the PORTDIR_OVERLAY variable set in /etc/mak.conf. My line looks like:
Code:
PORTDIR_OVERLAY="/usr/local/portage"

2) Type as root:
# mkdir /usr/local/portage/sys-kernel
and then,
# mkdir /usr/local/portage/sys-kernel/klak-sources
3) Download this file to a temp location and then copy it to /usr/local/portage/sys-kernel/klak-sources as root.
4) Type as root:
# emerge -v klak-sources --digest
5) You will need to adjust the symlink to linux-2.6.8.1-klak6.

I have the Keywords set as stable x86 and unstable amd64. The CK sources are unstable amd64, so I added that, but I do not know if these sources will work or not.

Oh, and this was the first ebuild that I wrote, so let me know if there are any errors.

Thanks.

-Stiff

EDIT: Changed link to point to the file on jefklak's server.

Horray, I think I love you!! :lol: 8)
Going to add it RIGHT away!
Thanks a bunch!

Its good the way your ebuild is right now, the separate files are the for the experts, if you include them one by one you'll still get HUNK failures.

MOD
quick howto & ebuild added
