Linux A new version of the real-time Linux scheduler called SCHED_DEADLINE has been released on the Linux Kernel Mailing List. For people who missed previous submissions, it consists of a new deadline-based CPU scheduler for the Linux kernel with bandwidth isolation (resource reservation) capabilities. It supports global/clustered multiprocessor scheduling through dynamic task migrations. This new version takes into account previous comments/suggestions and is aligned to the latest mainline kernel. A video about SCHED_DEADLINE is also available on YouTube.

RE[5]: lie-nux at it again.

Member since:

what happened to the unix method of copy some program to a directory and just use it ??

That method never existed. Even in the old days programs had to be compiled for each Unix variant and architecture, and these days UNIX dependencies are almost as bad as Linux.

Even on Windows, so called "stand alone" applications have pre-requisites, be that a specific version of the .NET framework, the latest DirectX drivers or even just Win32 libraries.

i have 512 megabyte in my desktop ( mint linux ). i have to restart most days. it just hangs.

Have you never considered that your problem might be running one of the most resource heavy distributions of Linux on a 10 year old PC?

You'd be better off with Puppy than Mint.

i know about computing... i built the first control program ( os ) of south asia, in 2002. it was based on microkernel architecture but ran in x86 "real mode". just a demonstrator. had message passing and unix-like "signals".

Please don't insult our intelligence with such blatant lies. If you want to appear to understand this subject, then you're much better off learning the subject (and keeping quiet on the subject until you do) rather than pretending to then covering your tracks with fictitious boasts because everyone has voted you down for posting nonsense.
