Romsterwhat tcp congestion algorithm you use? i'm on westwood+00:02
Romstersupposedly the best one of the pick from what i can gather.00:02
RomsterhorrorStruck, ^00:05
Romsterit's about time i update the kernel on my router.00:27
Romsterand add that patch00:27
horrorStruckRomster: funny you're talking about this, I'm using default ATM but was playing with qfq not later than today. couldnt make the stuff work properly but i didnt struggle very hard tbh00:53
horrorStruckdo you need to use tc to switch to westwood+ as well?00:53
horrorStruckisnt default (fifo_fast) still enabled?01:02
Romsternot sure how you switch it probably though echo to /proc ijsut set the default to westwood+ in my kernel config.01:02
Romsterunless you change it like i have done.01:03
Romsterwestwood+ gives me more bandwidth faster.01:03
Romsterironic that you were playing around with it too recently.01:03
Romsteri like to dabble with networking stuff.01:04
Romsterneed to see if i can still use IMQ with this new kernel.01:04
Romsteri've learned not to make so many classes for traffic you can go overboard.01:05
horrorStrucki had QoS disabled until now (so the kernel was using default), i'll play with it again later today. for now, the angry-female-because-of-computer-activity-in-house level just reached MAXIMUM ALERT01:22
Romsterheh she wants time too...01:24
Romsteri don't have that problem.01:24
RomsterhorrorStruck, how the heck did you get that patch to apply to linux-3.1.1 it has some hunks that failed for me.01:35
horrorStruckRomster: it's batched with bfs but i dont think that matters and with 3.1 patch queue from greg kh's git repo. it's a x86_64 kernel also01:36
Romsteroh you used bfs patchset?01:37
horrorStruckonly bfs, not -ck patchset01:37
Romsterhmm but bfs is it's own stuff how is that related to this;a=commitdiff;h=a262f0cdf1f2916ea918dc329492abb5323d9a6c01:38
horrorStruckyes unrelated01:38
horrorStrucklet me retry with clean source, brb01:38
Romsteri saved the text out of that url01:39
Romsteri got pf-patchset on my desktop and BFS BFQ but this is on my rotuer i only have IMQ so far and now this if i can get both to patch else i'll omit IMQ for the time being.01:41
horrorStruckhorrorStruck: works here01:43
horrorStruckRomster: works here01:43
horrorStruckRomster: same ?01:45
Romsterlol talking to yourself :D01:46
horrorStruckyep :D01:46
Romsterthat off the ML?01:47
horrorStruckfrom git01:47
Romstertesting it now01:50
Romstertakes  a bit of time to decompress on a p401:50
Romstercant' be any worse than me talking to cruxbot :D01:50
horrorStruckhehe, he's a nice guy however01:51
Romsterok that patched with a few line offsets.01:51
Romsterwonder why the other url above didn't work.01:51
Romster-2 lines on all the hunks01:51
horrorStrucksame here01:51
Romstersweet imq patched on top of that ok.01:52
horrorStruckwhat's imq again please ?01:53
RomsterIntermediate Queueing Device01:53
horrorStruckyeah found it, thanks01:53
Romsteri use it to shape downloads.01:53
Romsternot ideal but it works01:54
Romsteri'd rather use tcp window manipulation of the ACKS someone is working on some project of that sorts and i'm waiting to get my hands on it :D01:54
Romsternot much point having BFS on my router but on my desktop BFS is awesome.01:55
horrorStruckyeah i use it on most machines too01:56
horrorStruckwhat is your router running?01:56
horrorStruckoh. you use a pc, right?01:57
Romsterstock, my old setup on the p3 was running my modifyed crux hvl.01:57
horrorStruckok, nice01:57
Romsterpentium d cpu now.01:57
Romsteri've rebuit it and reinstalled from scratch like 6 months ago01:57
Romsterond hardware was getting too flakey.01:57
Romsterold board from some customers pc i pinched01:58
Romsterwhen they upgraded there pc.01:58
Romstermight be a bit power hungry but i read the pentium D is less power than a p4.01:58
Romsterit hosts my apache and maradns openntpd squid and a few others.01:59
Romsterneed to figure a way to dynamicly adjust tc rates by latency i do it manually currently..02:00
horrorStrucki use some git branch of tomatousb on a rt-n16, less sexy than your setup :P02:00
Romsteroh i found a filesystem that's similer to googlefs \o/02:00
Romsteri have yet to setup distcc again now that i got 2 quad cores and 1 dual core cpu02:01
Romstershould be interesting since i've also upgraded all my links and switch to gigabit.02:02
Romsteri got a few other things to setup too entopy gathering daemon on all 3 pc's02:02
horrorStruckwhat's the nic in the router just ooc?02:04

Romsteri keep the wifi locked down tight so it's not got full access to my LAN.02:06
Romstercall me paranoid but i like to be secure. even though everyone in this area is probably too dumb to even hack into it.02:07

horrorStruckRomster: no idea for your kernel, difficult without any error. BTW for your router, you may want to try this: code is there:
Romsterconsole switching to colour frame buffer device 80x3009:06
Romsterand just sits there09:07
Romster$ cat /sys/class/graphics/fb0/modes | sort09:07
Romsterstil perplexed and gave up on the new kernel for the time being unless you got some ideas, ahci off didn't help nor did vga=normal in lilo.conf09:08
Romsteri've never had framebuffer issues before.09:08
Romsterand i checked that i didn't have usb legacy on in bios as i read that can cause stuff to hang too.09:09
RomsterhorrorStruck, ^09:09
horrorStruckno idea sorry, never had any issue like this before. what kind of graphic chip do you have in there?09:11
Romster01:00.0 VGA compatible controller: VIA Technologies, Inc. CN700/P4M800 Pro/P4M800 CE/VN800 [S3 UniChrome Pro] (rev 01)09:12
RomsterKernel driver in use: viafb09:12
frinnstno kms with via?09:13
Romsterno idea...09:13
Romsternever looked and it's working fine on
Romsterall i did was do a make oldconfig and used default settings so i should of jsut sued silentoldconfig09:14
Romstersame result though but wont get past that "console switching to colour frame buffer device 80x30" line.09:15
Romsterafter i commented out the append="quiet" line out of lilo.conf09:15
horrorStruckcan you share your config?09:22
Romsteri can then i'm heading to bed.09:23
Romster2.6.39.4 works fine 3.1.1 is a make silentoldconfig and does not work09:28
Romsteri didn't dig too deep into the issue.09:28
Romsteri really need to sleep so g'night.09:28

RomsterhorrorStruck, thank you i'll compile it now but wont have time to test until after work. perhaps make oldconfig is not so wise with major kernel version changes.15:33
