    I'll keep an eye on my processes. It tends to happen worse when it's on the touchstone so I'm thinking something tied to exhibition mode might be causing the issue. Thanks for the reply.

    I agree with the exhibition mode thinking as well especially in concert with wifi enabled.

    Unix,
    I've been running SSv3 since you released the -71 of F105.
    I'm so impressed with the performance and battery life! Seriously great work. Thanks a ton.

    Configuration is as follows:
    Governor: screenstate-v3
    Scheduler: deadline
    Congestion: westwood
    min freq: 500 MHz
    max freq: 1.005 GHz
    vdemand factor: 2
    vdemand enable: true
    charger override: false
    charger poll rate: 60
    vdemand poll rate: 100
    ondemand enable: true
    CPU Voltage: 65 67 65 45 36
    System Voltage: 47
    temp limit: 50 C
    temp reset: 45 C
    temp scaleback: 500 MHz
    batt low thresh: 20 %
    batt low speed: 500 MHz
    compcache enabled: false
    compcache memlimit: 16 MB

    (yes, I know my top and bottom voltages are super low. They're also quite stable for my hardware)

    As long as it works for you, then that's cool. That's why the options are there for .

    I run even lower voltages than you but I keep vdemand off. In my testing I haven't seen a need to increase voltage based on load. My lowest stable voltage seems to work well no matter what the load is.

    BTW, I found that the Statusbar Weather Widget I was using would not uninstall (and it has an ongoing periodic 'check' for updates). So I ran an EPR and then reinstalled the patches I wanted.

    So far so good re: swap

    Does anybody know how it compares to UberKernal at the same clock speeds? Also are there any benchmarking tools for the Pre 2 like the one seen for TouchPad's? Cheers

    It's very likely the standard Palm Backup procedure that's taking up all the memory and swap on your device. That is what I discovered via this thread ->

    Sporadic 100% memory/swap usage then becoming unresponsive.

    You will need to increase the swap space on your device and disable compcache per this URL ->

    WebOS 2 Upgrade Pre Minus

    That's what fixed it for me! Works great!

    EDIT: I had forgotten to upload the Govnah file.

    I have been running F102A on a Verizon Pre Plus (1.4.5.1) for a long time with good results. I recently saw that AV8B Harrier II was in the stable feeds and thought it might be interesting to try it.

    Based on past issues I felt like installing the recovery kernel was the first step. I did not "uninstall" F102A - I simply selected the recovery kernel (1.4.5-10 is what Preware seems to say is the version) and installed it. After the phone rebooted I went to enable wifi and it failed. I then dug into the logs using lumberjack and it showed it was unable to load the wifi driver.

    Thinking this was goofy and weird I figured something didn't uninstall quite right and I tried to reinstall F102A (1.4.5-184) however this failed to complete erroring out with messages that the files were not stock. Files included in the error messages were things like the ramzswap files which seem compcache related. I had thought all of this would be restored by the recovery kernel.

    Govnah shows compressed swap is still enabled - which is really spooky since this is the recovery kernel. The F102A setup was using Screenstate2 500/800 (Default F102A). I had not made changes to any settings other than VDEMAND level which was changed from MED to HIGH. This was checked before I installed the recovery kernel. Govnah is version 1.0.5 and I have attached the "generate email" file to this post.

    I have not tried disabling compcache since I wasn't sure if that was the right next step.

    I have no issues with doctoring - it's on my list of potential solutions.
    If anyone has suggestions on how to get a good list of homebrew apps installed and automate the reinstall I'd love to hear about it but that's offtopic for here so please PM me.

    just looks like some files got left behind. that govnah script will try to load them if they exist.

    You dont have to Doctor if you know where to delete those compcache modules. or you can install F102 or AV8B and then uninstall and let it remove them gracefully.

    Actually lost in that soup of text is the fact that I did try to reinstall F102A (to see if it had any impact on Wifi problem) but when it downloaded and tried to install it failed with the errors in the IPKG log below:

    Try reinstalling the recovery kernel package, don't reboot, go into CLI and delete the 2 compcache modules:
    /lib/modules/2.6.24-palm-joplin-3430/extra/ramzswap.ko
    /lib/modules/2.6.24-palm-joplin-3430/extra/xvmalloc.ko

    Make sure you have all Govnah profiles disabled or deleted, then reboot. Verify you are running stock Palm kernel with cat /proc/version. Then see if Govnah and wifi are happy. If things are in order, try installing F102 or AV8B again.

    If that doesn't work then a Doctor may be needed.

    Thank you.

    One more thing I noticed - despite the failed install the icon for F102A was created on my system. Trying to run this (which should do nothing more than display the release notes as I recall) resulted in an app window that started to load (flashing glow behind a Penguin with a WI chip in front of him) and never successfully loaded. I had to toss the card away eventually. I'm not sure if this is important as it's not all that often the install would fail but it might be cleaner if the abort of the install cleaned this detail up.

    Trying what you suggested now. I'll post the details when I know what happened.

    Deleted files as suggested. Govnah comes up with Palm Default as before but no longer shows compressed swap in the advanced section which is good. Govnah profile was disabled before reboot as suggested.
    Cat /proc/version output:

    Linux version 2.6.24-palm-joplin-3430 (na@na) (gcc version 4.3.3 (Sourcery G++ 4.3-234) ) #1 359

    Is that correct?

    Checked WiFi - after a minute I gave up. Doesn't turn on - just gets hung in the spinning wheel indicator on the drop down menu. Checked logs with lumberjack - tried to send a copy of the log with lumberjack but this made the phone crawl (I've seen large emails cause this before with webOS)

    I rebooted and got a partial log but no mention of the wifi failure was included. I did see a number of errors of this type:

    Is that correct?

    Checked WiFi - after a minute I gave up. Doesn't turn on - just gets hung in the spinning wheel indicator on the drop down menu. Checked logs with lumberjack - tried to send a copy of the log with lumberjack but this made the phone crawl (I've seen large emails cause this before with webOS)

    I rebooted and got a partial log but no mention of the wifi failure was included. I did see a number of errors of this type:

    No - I hadn't thought of that.
    I assume full shutdown and then pull for a minute or so?

    I just tried reinstalling the F102A and it barfed again with the following error:

    Code:
    postinst

    Device kernel is not in factory condition, refusing to install replacement
    I suspect I need to reinstall the recovery kernel again but is there anything else I can do about these failed verification files?
  18. #1438  
    While we are on this topic - is it better to UNINSTALL the current modified Kernel or install the recovery Kernel when you are trying to remove the current modified kernel?

    Is either process required before installing a different modified Kernel?

    Battery pulled - So far no luck. I'm starting to hear the notes of a famous Jackson Browne song in my ears...

    But in the meantime I noticed several threads that include this same symptom. There are even some in the touchpad forums that seem similar - some of the problems persist across doctoring.

    http://forums.precentral.net/palm-pr...nt-turn-2.html
    (Not much useful info here other than these folks are having problems that sound similar and involve modified non-stock kernel install/removals)

    I have wifi working again...

    As I read through the threads about wifi one thing was standing out. In some cases people had installed testing kernels when reinstalling the stable kernel had failed. I figured I had nothing left to lose so I tried several - all failed. Then I recalled that Unixpsycho had some directly installable kernels outside of Preware. I remembered that I had previously (a long time ago prior to the last doctor in March of 2011) installed a copy of F100 SuperSabre and had it on an older laptop with Novacom and webOSQuickInstall - I tried it - and guess what - it worked!

    Now do I dare try to go back to preware and reinstall the stock kernel and see if I can get this working right?

    I assume the reason F100 installed is that webOSQuickInstall wasn't as careful as Preware and didn't verify "original" status before installing. Since I was up against a doctor - I didn't really worry too much over the potential downside.
