cfq io scheduler is disabled in tinycore kernel?

<< < (2/3) > >>

curaga:
Very curious, as the config hardly changed.

You could try to see if you can isolate the change that broke things between 3.0.3 and 3.0.21. Alternatively, you can run newer TC versions using the older kernel, by remastering the 3.0.3 modules to the 4.4 initrd for example.

Hi AbNoRMiS
You haven't mentioned things like processor speed, RAM, or which applications are loaded and running.
Is it possible the machine was at or near the limit of its capabilities to begin with?

AbNoRMiS:

previously i used lxde but now i use jwm
mostly i use the following software
opera-11, seamonkey, firefox with flash11 and netsurf
pidgin and skype
gnome-mplayer, vlc, minitube with mplayer phonon backend
abiword and gnumeric
aria2, fatrat, transmission, mldonkey
sometimes i also use gimp2 and inkscape
agree that for these purposes my computer is suitable

Rich:
Hi AbNoRMiS
Next time your computer slows down during a copy operation, enter the following:

--- Code: ---free > free.txt
top -n 1 > top.txt
--- End code ---
Attach or paste the contents of those files to your next post.
When the copy operation completes, enter:

--- Code: ---sudo cache-clear
--- End code ---
Then do another copy operation and see if it is faster.

thanks for good advice
not immediately understand how to do that
but then i made this script using remastering guide
http://wiki.tinycorelinux.net/wiki:remastering

TMPDIR=/tmp/extract
DIR431=/tmp/extract.431

sudo rm -rf $DIR431
mkdir -p $DIR431
cd $DIR431
zcat /mnt/sda1/tc/4.3.1/core.gz | sudo cpio -i -H newc -d

sudo rm -rf $TMPDIR
mkdir -p $TMPDIR
cd $TMPDIR
zcat /mnt/sda1/tc/core.gz | sudo cpio -i -H newc -d

sudo rm -rf lib/modules/3.0.21-tinycore
sudo mv $DIR431/lib/modules/3.0.3-tinycore lib/modules

rm -f /tmp/core+remastering.gz
sudo find | sudo cpio -o -H newc | gzip -9 > /tmp/core+remastering.gz
advdef -z4 /tmp/core+remastering.gz
