Striving for greatness

Thoughts on emerging tech, open source, and life

[Gentoo] Preemption rocks.

I just upgraded the kernel on the Pegasos to 2.6.11-pegasos-r3 from 2.6.10-pegasos-r1 (Gentoo’s patched kernel sources for Pegasos) and enabled preemption on a whim.

My Xorg tinderbox checkout-and-build time rocketed down from nearly four hours to just over one hour. That’s right, a ~70% drop.

That’s sweet.
