Re: How To: smxi Install and Setup

Excellent how to!

Small typo in the title.   You have "sxmi",  but I think you intended "smxi".

Re: How To: smxi Install and Setup

another great how to v1

i know this is about smxi but...
if running sid with a towo, would it benefit any to use liquorix
or at least add it then switch between the two and compare?

are you going to get into the rest that smxi/sgfxi/svmi does/can do?
or is the scope mainly kernel/gfx

cheers


So come up to the lab...
And see what's on the slab

Re: How To: smxi Install and Setup

Thanks apprentice... I appreciate that!

I would add liquorix and test against towo... It wouldn't hurt at all.  I think I'll add towo and do the same on my end and we can compare notes.

I will add all of the smxi/sgfxi/svmi capapabilities over the next couple of days... I need to find a tty scrot tool to make it easier...

Re: How To: smxi Install and Setup

@apprentice I run towo instead of liquorix.  I seem to get  a little better scheduling in my vm (I run a Win7 guest on #! for Visual Studio development).
YMMV

Re: How To: smxi Install and Setup

@hinto Thats good info..

I use Liquorix because it seems to handle all my multimedia needs a lot better than anything I have used.

Re: How To: smxi Install and Setup

Great howto. I use smxi & am contemplating installing the ati drivers, as currently waldorf is using the i915 card in this laptop neutral I think it worth mentioning that if you add the liquorix sources & do a dist-upgrade, it might want to upgrade a few packages, in my case wireless firmware & drivers.  I really don't want that from the liquorix repo, after installing the latest liquorix kernel I coment out the repo in sources.list

Re: How To: smxi Install and Setup

as we continue to go off topic, towo is one of the developers for siduction.  The towo kernels seem to follow the debian kernel versions in the repositories.  Every once in a while I'll get a kernel that seems to pause during its scheduling.  I think it's more closely related to the debian source, rather than who compiles what.

Re: How To: smxi Install and Setup

Great how to.

However, wouldn't it be much easier for crunchbang to come with the smxi stub already installed?
I can't see any negatives only positives if this were the case.
