So, does anyone know about any cpu scaling governors that reduce overhead but are still responsive to sudden load requirements?  I'm seeing this nice evolution on Android where the stakes are higher: battery life, responsiveness, smoothness. 

Would you guys be interested in some cpufreq governor ports?  The ondemand governor already is tuned to get out of the way during high load, but I think there's room for more power savings too that ondemand can't satisfy without introducing more latency.

I am not really fluent in such topics, but I believe the mobile phone setting is a totally different one than our classic desktops, where you tend to have just 1 or 2 active applications, put 1 to sleep and switch to another, etc. Something like Chromium OS would be the closest to a classic desktop. But for mysterious reasons they go with the mainline schedulers.

Ugh, HostGator blocked apt-get traffic to my site thinking I was getting DOS'd.  No, Liquorix grew.

Switched to IntoVPS for an unmanaged server where the sys admins don't treat you like dirt.

The 32 bit kernel was switched to highmem 64gb some time ago, have you tried installing it?

I'm so happy I learned about pbuilder-dist.  Now I can build about 20 packages of Liquorix, multi-threaded per package, at a time on a remote host with powerful raw processing power.  I'm getting goosebumps thinking of all the possibilities.

Beginning with the 3.7, the 32-bit kernel requires PAE.

I wish the Debian wine packages just worked. They don't, and I don't have time to dick around. Better wines packages are now in Liquorix repos.

For wine 1.15 there is a strange thing:
Conflicts: winetricks

Why would that be?

For anyone that doesn't know already, Zen-Kernel is temporarily available at http://github.com/damentz/zen-kernel.  Here, Jan and I have been providing regular updates like before with the added benefit of github's reliability.  And if you really want to, github lets you submit pull requests to streamline your patch inclusion.

Just remember to choose the right branch in the pull request, or send an email to our Zen-Kernel google groups to add a new feature.

Happy Fall everyone!

Also, the online version is just like actual driving - move along and then get told to wait.
