custom atom+bfs311 kernel

Postby steve walton on Sun Dec 06, 2009 12:39 am

i have a custom kernel 2.6.32 compiled for atom processors with con kolivas bfs311 patch. It is built for low latency PREEMPT, 1000Hz.
Testing on eeepc 901 with Mint 8.
Very fast and snappy although battery life may not be as good.
Anyone want to test it?. Where can i upload it ?
thanks
steve

here's the image

and the headers

i'm no expert at this so your comments are welcome

to install:-
remove nvidia-common as its causes apt to error ( i dont need this on eeepc netbook )
sudo apt-get remove nvidia-common

click the deb packages to install
reboot
hold down shift when grub begins to select kernel
enjoy
if your on a netbook like me with ext4 you should mount root with noatime,noacl,barrier=0 as phoronix.com has noted a performance regression with ext4 on 2.6.32

**** dont install missing ureadahead patch !!!! - causes boot fail
