Description

The addition of Con Kolivas' brain fuck scheduler to LH's kernel will benefit users who transcode on their LH boxes. I have been been running it on my own systems for months. See the PKGBUILD I adapted for it in the AUR:

Do you know when it's scheduled to go into the mainline kernel?

Updated by graysky about 13 years ago

It will likely never get mainlined... and that's how CK likes it :)

@jams - See the most recent entry blog entry on CK's website. Very interesting video that explains queuing theory and why bfs will be faster than mainline's scheduler.

I would be glad to help with the packaging of it since I already maintain the kernel26-ck package in the AUR. http://aur.archlinux.org/packages.php?ID=32877
