The other day I was running the stock fedora kernel on my ip
forwarding setup, to see what the performance was, and the performance
wasn't very good.
system is S5520HC dual socket 2.93GHz Xeon 5570 (Nehalem) with 3 quad
port 82580 adapters (12 ports). Traffic is bidirectional 64 byte
packets being forwarded and received on each port, basically port to
port routing. I am only using 12 flows currently.
The driver is igb, and I am using an affinity script that lines up
each pair of ports that are forwarding traffic into optimal
configurations for cache locality. I am also disabling
remote_node_defrag_ratio to stop cross node traffic.
With the fedora default kernel from F14 it appears that
CONFIG_NETFILTER=y means that I cannot unload all of netfilter even if
I stop iptables service.
perf showed netfilter being prominent, and removing it gives me much
higher throughput. Is there a reason CONFIG_NETFILTER=y ? Isn't it a
good thing to be able to disable netfilter if you want to?
This patchset contains only cherry-picked patches from Linus' current
tree. Without these patches, the Genesi Smarttop does not recognize the
onboard SSD-chip. The required driver (pata_imx) is already included in
the ARM verion of the kernel, only the bindings with the board are
Instead of sending all patches in separate emails, I'm attaching them
numbered and all for easy inclusion in the F15 kernel. I have done
local testing and can happily report that the 126.96.36.199-1 kernel can use
the onboard SSD when appying these patches.
I (and other Fedora ARM owners of a Smarttop) appreciate it if these
patches can be included in a next release. Many thanks,

Ah, indeed. My apologies Bruno, I misread "install only" as
"install". Your RFE sounds good indeed.
I'm getting the $SUBJECT error when I try to
install a rawhide kernel on an updated f16 vm.

Things like the network and NFS do not come up due the fact the modules can not
be found... so things are not being installed correctly....
Google searching the error I see a number bugzillas that are being blissfully
Just curious if anybody else has seen this error and what they did about it...
Has anyone else noticed wifi problems (via iwlagn) on 3.1.5?
After a wake from sleep today my lenovo laptop could not connect to
wifi. It had connected fine on a different wifi.
It got stuck in 'authenticating' phase - if the supplicant logs are a
Booting back to 3.1.4 got it going again immediately.
I did not see any out of the ordinary messages.t
I know there been quite a bit of noise about iwlagn driver on LKML -
but I thought most of the patches had gone into 3.1.5 ...

Looks like nobody noticed when it changed from a bool to a tristate in

AppleTalk is the protocol that Apple computers can use to communicate
^1da177e (Linus Torvalds 2005-04-16 15:20:36 -0700 36) on a
network. If your Linux box is connected to such a network, and wish
^1da177e (Linus Torvalds 2005-04-16 15:20:36 -0700 37) to do
IP over it, or you have a LocalTalk card and wish to use it to
^1da177e (Linus Torvalds 2005-04-16 15:20:36 -0700 38)
connect to the AppleTalk network, say Y.
This isn't the first time this has happened...
Sorry for the broadcast, but don't see a group with networking and wireless.
Can someone please recommend a list of wireless client adapters that support fedora or linux in general? I checked a few vendor, but did not see download for them.
