Upgrading Linux Kernel

Discussion in News started by Cam, Apr 26, 2007

  1. Posts
    I am about to undergo an extremely risky procedure: upgrading the linux kernel, which will allow us to change the kernel Hz to 1000. This will improve the server performance dramatically and will allow for 1000+FPS on the server, allowing us to have more players, possibly...

    This is a very risky procedure, if I make the smallest mistake, PlagueFest may be gone for a good while. I will keep you updated.

    Wish me luck.

    UPDATES

    STATUS: FAILED. Will re-attempt tonight at 1am CDT!

    Expect at least 3 hours of downtime.
