The Liquorix Kernel Is Still Ticking, Currently Based On Linux 4.1
It's been two years since I last tested / reported on the Liquorix kernel, which advertises itself as "the better distro kernel" with optimizations for desktop, multimedia, and gaming workloads.
The Liquorix kernel has Zen interactive tuning, hard kernel preemption, utilizes Budget Fair Queue (BFQ), Vegas TCP congestion control, smaller TX net queues, AuFS support, etc.
As of writing, the latest Liquorix kernel is marked for v4.1-9 and was issued last week. While there hasn't been much coverage of Liquorix lately, the project still seems to be very much alive. Would you be interested in seeing its modern kernel compared to that of the Linux kernel in some distribution stock configurations? Let me know if interested!
