    The patch applies to 2.6.31 kernel. If the kernel is already patched, you need to merge patches yourself... It seems you are one step forward on 2.6.31.1

      You can ignore that error. It just tries to append an "-bfs240" to your kernel name. You can that yourself.

        So the kernel is patched now? I just compile and the new kernel image will use the BFS scheduler automatically?

          Assuming you know how to install the resulting kernel and editing /boot/grub/grub.conf to boot it :P

            I'll do my best
            I mean there isn't any option in the kernel config which permits you to choose what scheduler you use?

              Nope. The BFS patch completely removes CFS from the kernel.

                  Well, is there any way to check that indeed the BFS scheduler has been applied?
                  I don't see any difference in my system in comparison with the previous kernel.
                  No boosts, no slowdowns, no hangs, nothing... while I expected serious problems since I use reiserfs which causes problems with BFS according to Kolivas.

                    No, more like a pissing match between Con and the LKML bunch.

                    Think something along the lines of what you end up seeing from Theo & the OpenBSD crowd and our bunch and you'd have it a lot closer. Happens from to time with egos in play.

                      From time to time?
