I posted this in the last thread and nobody answered, so I'll try again here. In 2.6.6-love1 I can run warcraft 3 perfectly, but in any later version of kernel, the cd is not detected properly as being in the drive and I get the "no cd found" error. Are there any patches/changes known that would cause this?


I've problems too with later versions of love, the suprmount patch even when enabled seems to not work properly. I can access the drives myself fine but winex seems to have problems with it. I suggest you disable suprmount and either use submount or just manually mount/umount.

About 2.6.7-rc1 see this

That is just the announcement that Linus put out on lkml. I already linked to a reaction to that which showed the patch wasn't uploaded yet. But in the meantime it is, and it's on kernel.org now.

First, I don't use supermount. Second, my kernel config is EXACTLY the same for all kernels. So no, it's not possible that supermount is screwing me over.

I finally got Reiser4 support in to kernel. 2.6.5-cko didnt work, but 2.6.6-love5 did the trick. Test Reiser4 partiotion seems to be fastest fs at moment, but i have one problem. I haven't found any good www-site which explain Reiser4 plugins and them use simply. Those what i have found are write to fs coders, not simple people like me ;)

So if someone knows good howto pages about plugin could they post links here. And topic just for Reiser4 wouln'd be bad at all, i haven't found that either. Usually this is just google problem i know.

I've never had a problem with nvidia and the love sources. I used to have a geforce 4 ti 4200 now I have a geforce fx5200.

What I do is emerge glx-thingy and then use nvidia installer. Everytime I compile a kernel I just rerun the nvidia installer.

It's a known thing. That's why this isn't an offical release.

Awesome kernel.

Crypto loop seems to be borked, though.

I had problems like this, and I found that if when I created the fs I overrode the key format to use small keys everything worked fine.

Here's an example:

Code:

mkfs.reiser4 -o key=key_short /dev/hda4

You have an nvidia card? If so, this is a known issue. You want to fix it? Use the nvidia version 4363 located at http://www.sh.nu/download/nvidia/linux-2.6/


Cant i use the one in emerge?

Okay, as I see, there are some patches which supposedly fix most of the problems.
I installed with Reiser4 as root system, modified startup scripts to disable fsck (hence remounting).
It works fine most of the time, but I get rare MD5 failures while downloading using portage/wget... this didn't happen even once with xfs...
Similarly Firefox compilation failures - weird, although the tree is green. I'm doing a clean pull right now to see it it'll help.
That's a major showstopper for me.
[EDIT: WRONG, it's always the same failure - it seems there's a bug?
I was trying Aviary branch from CVS... will try the trunk]

I have large keys enabled.
I'll try love5 + all these patches later.

What happened to our love-sources CMS system? www.love-sources.org is dead.

I can't get the reiser4 patch to work =/

Code:
linux-2.6.6-love5 # patch -p0 < ../reiser4patchlove5
can't find file to patch at input line 19
Perhaps you used the wrong -p or --strip option?

the files to patch are fs/reiser4/debug.c and fs/reiser4/reiser4.h, or you can go to http://www.andrewnelson.org/2.6.6-evil3-r1.patch.bz2 to get evil-sources 2.6.6-evil3-r1 which is basically 2.6.6-love5, nfsacl, -supermount, cdfs (a cd file system that makes the sessions into iso images which you can copy to your hard drive, for audio cds, it shows the tracks as wav files), and the reiser4 large key patch. I can't seem to get reiser4 working as a root partition, it doesn't even get to init and it oopses out, i'll post my .config when i get to my computer.

wait... so you're saying that this patch won't support a /root/ reiser4 system? btw that cdfs thing sounds pretty cool, instant isos is always handy.

I'll try those eeeeevil sources anyway.
[EDIT]: You haven't included the fix to Packet CD Writing[/EDIT]

[EDIT]: Failure... this really doesn't support Reiser4 as root.
Dies with TONS of messages. Couldn't scroll-lock on them.
Guess I'll redo the system with multiple partitions anyway.
(2nd time this month... ehh? Maybe I'll pass on Reiser4 for now.
ReiserFS will be enough.)
I have to measure them to find expected usage - I keep PORTDIR on /var for example.[/EDIT]
