Title: New Linux Kernel: The Big 5.0
Post by: VinDSL on March 14, 2019, 07:15:48 am
Interesting times we're living in.

Android 'Q' should be released in the next few days. Did you realize, there's no 'Q' on a dialer pad?  :)

Then, there's the recent release of Linux Kernel 5.0 (https://lkml.org/lkml/2019/3/3/236)...

Although Linus famously said, the reason he called it '5.0' was because he ran out of fingers and toes, 5.0 is loaded with new features (https://www.phoronix.com/scan.php?page=article&item=linux-2019-features&num=1).

I've been busy building some machines lately, and I totally ignored the Linux 5.0 RCs. However, after playing around with different kernels on my latest Peppermint 9 box, I was quite pleased with Linux 5.0, and went that route.

I might mention, with a little tweaking, I've been getting 3-second boots with Peppermint 9, on top of Linux 5.0.

Very impressive, indeed!

I thought I should start a new thread, to document the journey, in case anyone else is interested in this sort of stuff.

 :-* You know I am  :D
Been running the 5.0 series for a few weeks, currently 5.0.2  ;)

I settled on Linux 5.0.0-7-generic x86_64,UEFI w/Secure Boot

After doing the usual tweaks...

Code: [Select]
vindsl@Killerwatt ~ $ systemd-analyze time
Startup finished in 2.569s (kernel) + 1.290s (userspace) = 3.859s
graphical.target reached after 1.285s in userspace

vindsl@Killerwatt ~ $ systemd-analyze critical-chain

A couple of things...

You might have noticed, or not, that I'm using nVidia 360 drivers. I tried nVidia 390 drivers, but they were causing too many headaches, on this cowboy kernel.

Also, I have a mishmash of RAM sticks installed in this machine - 2x2 GB of HP RAM and 2x2 GB of Dell RAM. That's all I had laying around.  ::)

The mem is working fine, but I'm trying to round up 4x4 GB of matching Dell RAM, just because I don't like mismatched RAM. It's an OCD thing. LoL

IKR

Never seen a machine that consistently boots in the 3-4 second range.

This thing flies with Peppermint 9 on top of Linux 5.0  :)

Heh. You know, I was just thinking...

I haven't seen the Plymouth splash screens once, since I built this thing  ;D

Everything shuts down before I can even lift my figure off the mouse button.

So, I don't see the splash screens at either end - boot screen nor shutdown  ;D

You're not missing much, but we can always slow the boot/shutdown if you like the artwork that much ???

[EDIT]

Or we could just put pics of the startup/shutdown screens here, so you can visit them when the mood takes you ;)

There ya go then, set one of those up in the corner to display the startup screen permanently .. then when booting your PC, quickly glance over then back .. problem solved :)

Perhaps it's time to coin the Phrase

"Kernalitus" to go with "Hoppertitus"

...I stayed away from it... for nearly two weeks, but... now I'm stuck again  :'(

EDIT: ok, I won't let this be stronger than me  :)
Booted back into the default 4.4.0-143 and removed all other kernels from the system. Kept one as fall back, 4.4.0-142.

EDIT 2: It makes life easier. Now, back at some other project...

Yeah, seems necessary ..

Kernelephantiasis - A largely benign affliction characterised by the victims inability to stop voluntarily bloating their operating system with parasitic non-default kernels.

Not bad, for a 'daily driver'...

I'm currently on 5,0.10, though I am on my Elitebook 2540p with 90GB of SSD 1.8", Intel I7 dual core processor and 4GB of Ram. Now I have upgraded to kernel 5.0.10, you're right it boots in no time at all, I get to my login screen in around eight seconds, which ain't bad at all. I'm going to see which version I can put on my main rig later on today.  Here is the specs of this machine. I'm currently at work, on another night shift. Still this quiet time, enables me to go onto the Internet.  ;D
