Kernel-vanilla-nrj-desktop & -laptop 3.11.10 for ROSA & OM

Post by NicCo »

yet another experiment... :) 8-) dedicated to all those people that prefer using a "pure kernel" with none patches...

the first idea and attempt was: viewtopic.php?f=38&t=3992
Kernel-vanilla-nrj? > let's try ASAP next kernels with NRJ!

In brief: This version contains bug fix, updated drivers, many improvments, amongst other things:
a speedup for all free video drivers, better EFI compatibility, better Haswell compatibility, others...


Various Helps and Suggestions for Kernel 3.10 series >>> viewtopic.php?p=22720#p22720


Project name: kernel-vanilla-nrj? > desktop, laptop, server, a lot of different flavours are possible.

Devel Status: 100% complete, now also for kernel 3.11 series


Flavours nr.: now we have two > 'kernel-vanilla-nrj-desktop' and then also 'kernel-vanilla-nrj-laptop'

DIfferences from plain vanilla:
Ondemand governor (instead of Performance), full Preempt, RCU preempt & boost, BFQ as i/o scheduler, 300Hz for laptop

Availability: Complete! From ROSA Marathon to ROSA Fresh R1 and naturally also for OM 2013.0 and cooker...

Expandibility:
we can prepare a lot of different kernels with the same engine, for example one dedicated to laptops


Goals: having the chance to try ASAP new kernels, also with full Preemption enabled "NRJ v4 mode",
in this way we can start trying the NRJ kernels much before, even up to two months earlier than usual,
we can also verify if some patch used in mainline featured kernel may cause regressions or unstability.

Kernel behaviour: like a vanilla plus a better multitasking and a better multimedia desktop experience!

I have installed 3.11.10, it installed fine, the reboot went ok, now I'm using it,
and so I have already an early NRJ flavour for the recent 3.11.x kernel series...
