    Default Liquorix 3.8 Kernel Has Some Performance Wins Over Linux

    Phoronix: Liquorix 3.8 Kernel Has Some Performance Wins Over Linux

    The Liquorix kernel is a modified version of the Linux kernel with out-of-tree patches and a kernel configuration that is highly-optimized for desktop, multimedia, and gaming workloads. It's been one year since last benchmarking the Liquorix kernel against a vanilla Linux kernel, but now we have some benchmarks of the Liquorix 3.8 kernel compared to the latest stable Linux kernel.

    So, they've just changed I/O scheduler from deadline to CFQ? Ubuntu's using deadline.

    That's BFQ, not CFQ.

    yep, BFQ (http://groups.google.com/group/bfq-iosched)... CONFIG_DEFAULT_BFQ=y

    there's also BFS in the config but apparently it's not enabled

    configs here... http://liquorix.net/sources/3.8/

    i never used liquorix, but if it shares code from zen-kernel (same author) then it also uses extra code/patches

    And impossible to take seriously, anything that has been... inappropriately renamed (since its not even a fork of Linux, it *IS* the linux kernel)... in tribute to alcohol -- WTF is wrong with him?
    Whats wrong with offering DEB-packaged Desktop-optimized kernel for Debian Testing/Sid?
    I have been using it recently due to bug in original Debian kernel, which was fixed in 3.8, but Debian is still on 3.2, and the ride is pure awesomeness.
    For example, it can hibernate properly, unlike Debian.

    Liquorix rocks!

    But Michael made misguiding title for purpose - Liquirix IS a Linux kernel, Debian-packaged, Zenwalk-inspired.

    The title was just easier/shorter writing over Liquorix 3.8 Kernel Has Some Performance Wins Over Vanilla/Mainline Linux Kernel.

    Or more like "optimized"? : ) My reply wasn´t meant as offensive at any degree anyway, this project is very worth mentioning!
