  2. google linuxsea. go to chapter 7, manually configuring a kernel. here is pappy's last seed. i copy it to linux folder, run make old config, then make menuconfig to add my drivers. well, that didn't work. i can't upload file correctly. the link on http://www.funtoo.org/Additional_Kernel_Resources for kernel seeds is dead here is a good link http://www.elilabs.com/~pappy/

  4. after grub loads my kernel i'm at login in less than 2 seconds. i build kernels with as few drivers and modules as i can.
  5. there was a kernel paramater --slow-usb or something like that i can't find it now. there is rootwait /usr/src/linux/Documentation/kernel-parameters
  6. sandro, i think you are missing the point on pstate driver. when i use i7z, it may show frequency maxed out at 3.9GHz, but c1 state shows 97 percent of processor is in halt state. isn't that power saving? for a long time i had microcode enabled in kernel and would see in dmesg something about microcode driver. i assumed it was working but there is more too it. i use git-sources. i use method two from this page https://fitzcarraldoblog.wordpress.com/2014/11/06/updating-intel-cpu-microcode-from-gentoo-linux/
  7. i7z works good for monitoring in real time and showing c states, which i think are more relevant than frequency. just moving my mouse around can raise frequency to max level
  8. i added cpupower to default runlevel with this line in conf.d START_OPTS="--governor powersave -d 1000MHz -u 2000MHz" and it works.
  9. Every 5.0s: cat /proc/cpuinfo | grep "MHz" Fri Jul 15 18:43:12 2016 cpu MHz : 3899.902 cpu MHz : 3900.329 cpu MHz : 3899.902 cpu MHz : 3900.115 look at documentation - /usr/src/linux/Documentation/cpu-freq/ i disable acpi driver enable pstate and powersave gov and pstate works automatically. googling pstate - it gets too technical for me. i use cpupower frequency info and cpupower frequency set

  11. make sure /boot is mounted cd /usr/src/linux cp arch/x86/boot/bzImage /boot/<new-name>
  12. i have xorg-server-1.17.2-r1 try #echo "x11-base/xorg-server" >> /etc/portage/package.unmask
  13. It might be possible to break this cycle by applying any of the following changes: - dev-libs/openssl-1.0.2d (Change USE: -kerberos) - app-crypt/mit-krb5-1.13.2 (Change USE: -pkinit) do you really need kerberos use flag enabled? also i often install xorg-server from chroot with no problem
  14. i tried with and without clutter too. i can do without parole. just wonder why it never works for me.
