what is the use or function scheduler_tick in kernel??????????
I have been trying to modify some driver code to essentially setup the DMA engine that is on a PCIe card and have it DMA to another PCIe card's memory region instead of the system memory. I am using a machine that has (I think) an Intel X38 Express north-bridge or similar and I believe it is also using ICH9 south bridge.
I'm experiencing in some strange troubles. I've an IBM x series server with 4 quadcore intel processors and 22gb of RAM. I'm using RH 4 U6 with kernel 2.6.9-67.ELlargesmp.
This system serves an heavy used Oracle 10g database.
After 1 hours from boot, under have I/O maybe due to a transaction, system seems to hang. dmesg reports:
I'm veeeery new to the kernel building business, please pardon my lameness
I'm building 2.6.30-rc2 kernel from scratch, I've;
$ git clone git://git.kernel.org/pub/scm/linux/kernel/git/torvalds/linux-2.6.git linux-2.6
$ cd linux-2.6
$ make 0=../build defconfig
$ cd ../build
$ make -j4
# make modules_install
# cp arch/i386/boot/bzImage /boot/bzImage-2.6.30-rc2
Hi all, guys!
I'm now writing my thesis to degree at the university. My work is about the covert (or
subliminal) channels in network protocols. The practice part of my
work is to implement such channels and suggest the security mechanism.
I'm a Linux fan and developing it under 2.6.27 kernel.
The problem occured when I tried to use the mechanism of function
If it's made impossible for a buggy or malicious application running on one VT to mess up state or
Also, make sure you remember:
I have been burned many times by an X server that didn't save/restore font tables properly. VT 1: setfont foobar.psf. VT 8: Do stuff in X. VT 1: the font is messed up.
I have a PVR running Fedora 10 with a 250G ext4 filesystem, created when the disto was installed from DVD. The filesystem is used to store OTA HD TV, files on the order of 6-7G, created by an HD HomeRun, an ethernet-based HDTV tuner, capable of creating two files concurrently. I'm running an almost-latest 2.6.27 kernel, from the Fedora binary rpm.
I am new to linux kernel. I am trying to make an uncompressed iso kernel image for linux 2.6 so that i can load kernel on some i386 emulator like qemu. I know that make bzImage makes compressed image.
can u please tell me if there is any way for building "uncompressed" bootable iso image for linux kernel?
Thanks in advance,
