|Summary : Linux kernel for laptop use with i686-up/smp-4GB
|Description : |
The kernel package contains the Linux kernel (vmlinuz), the core of your
Mandriva Linux operating system. The kernel handles the basic functions
of the operating system: memory allocation, process allocation, device
input and output, etc. This kernel is compiled for laptop use, single or
multiple i686 processor(s)/core(s) and less than 4GB RAM, using HZ_300
to save battery, voluntary preempt, CFS cpu scheduler, cfq i/o scheduler
and some other laptop-specific optimizations. If you want to sacrifice
battery life for performance, you better use the kernel-tmb-desktop.
This kernel relies on in-kernel smp alternatives to switch between up & smp
mode depending on detected hardware. To force the kernel to boot in single
processor mode, use the \"nosmp\" boot parameter.
For instructions for update, see:
The tmb kernels is an experimental kernel based on the kernel.org
kernels with added patches. Some of them may/will never end up in
the main kernels due to their experimental nature. Some refer to
this kernel as a \'hackkernel\' ...
Use these kernels at your own risk !!
