Thanks for the interesting info. Just to clarify. my post was not intended to complain, nor to intimate any problem per se, but instead only to inform other Manjaroos if they’d not otherwise been aware of this recent change.
The context for my interest in this is that, as i’d previously posted elsewhere in the forum, my Tower had experienced a series of nasty total freezes over months, which defied all diagnostic attempts to find root cause, until i discovered that it was using BFQ. I was going to then change it myself to CFQ but happily Phil at that time independently decided to provide CFQ as default in an update… & all my freezes immediately stopped. Hence with every 4.19.x update since then i have rechecked to see if it was still CFQ, which it was. I’ve been dreading a possible return to BFQ. Thus yesterday’s different change surprised me. That’s only in my Testing VMs, but obviously it will soon come to my Stable real Manjaroos… so i shall be a bit nervous to see if the freezes come back then or not.
It had not only been me making older posts about schedulers & concern about BFQ, so i hoped my post today might be of interest also to those Manjaroos.
