more info here :


Lulzactive Governor v2
Author: Tegrak

Based on "interactive" governor
Inspired by erasmux's "smartass" governor (included in Flykernel)

EDIT: V2 with SIO

Edit 2: v2.1 incoming to fix copybit errors => better performance than original

Edit 3 : v2.1 up, libcopybit errors fixed, goody

WooohooO nice to see another kernel dev!

Just a thing, the archive I've dowloaded seems to be corrupted, could you repost it so I can test it?
