Experimental Kernel with BFQ

Post by dasty » Fri Feb 10, 2017 22:47

Hi Guys!

I want to test the BFQ scheduler on sabayon, but I do not have any idea how to do so.

Currently I'm running Sabayon 16.11 kernel-version 4.8.0-sabayon.

I searched the wiki but the only thing I got were some Press releases https://wiki.sabayon.org/index.php?title=En:Wiki_News and this Gentoo Wiki entry https://wiki.gentoo.org/wiki/Project:Ke ... perimental.

Are you able to give me some ressources and steps I need to follow?
Is it necessary to compile the kernel on my own and patch the BFQ patches manually?

Thx in advance
