How to compile a Ubuntu 10.10 kernel with sched: automated per tty task groups kernel patch

Nov 27, 2010, 11:04 (0 Talkback[s])

[ Thanks to Peter for this link. ]

"Lately there has been quiet some buzz about the "sched: automated per tty task groups" kernel patch. It's supposed to dramatically improve the desktop interactivity under system strain. You can read a test at Phoronix.

"The patch is written for the 2.6.37 kernel but Ubuntu 10.10 runs the 2.6.35 kernel. This doesn't mean you can't compile your own 2.6.35 kernel for Ubuntu 10.10 with the patch included. Currently I am running this version but I haven't done any testing for speed improvements.

"Introduction

"git

"I'll be using git to get the latest kernel version. This is my favorite way to get the sources and it is in my opinion the fastest way to make changes later on when you want to update your own kernel to the latest version. I suggest adding my Launchpad repository to your system. The repository holds the latest version of git and is usually updated within a day of a new release of git, follow the instructions on the page Git Packages for Ubuntu to add my repository."
