klive is a project launched around one year ago by Andrea Arcangeli, a Linux kernel hacker. Quoting him:
During the 2005 Linux Kernel Developers Summit somebody raised the point that it’s not clear how much testing each git/rc/pre kernel gets before the final release, so this project aims to provide kernel live feedback about the usage of every different Linux Kernel version.
So klive is an easy way to get back kernel usage statistics from volunteers. And the project needs more volunteers. If you want to participate by sending data to the project, you will need:
After installing Python and Twisted, just run:
sh klive.sh --install
to put the command into your crontab, or read the tac file if you want a more flexible way. You’ll get more informations on the klive wiki.
Or you can just look at klive statistics.
