Nice I use nitro-sources for quite some time now.
But when doing a make menuconfig I noticed this:
Code:
.config:797: trying to assign nonexistent symbol INOTIFY

Actually I'm not sure about that but isn't inotify required for hal+dbus to work correctly?

As far as I know, inotify is indeed something related to Gnome's hal+dbus implementation, so maybe I should add it next time.

Btw, you should do 'make oldconfig' first when you've copied over your old .config file to this new kernel, then you won't get messages like these anymore because make oldconfig alters your .config to match the features of your new kernel.

You'll be happy to know that nitro4 boots just fine. I'm using reiser4 with the nvidia graphics and nforce sound module and no swsusp. It all works so far.

Compiles and boots fine, but I cannot install the ivtv drivers on it...

Danke, man :) it seems that I will try another 2.6.9 nitro after all.

Anyway, do you have somewhere that supermount-ng patch that you used before? I am using it ATM and I do not have enough time to setup the alternate method of automatic un/mounting. I will not ask you to put it on nitro tough, I only would want the patch itself, I plan to apply it on my setup.


PS: what switches do I have to apply when patching with the supermount diff? p0, p1...?

Well after messing around myself with some kernel patches, most of them are in nitro sources. So why bothering with -klak sources? Good question. I don't have time anymore to re-create the whole thing and re-apply all patches when a new kernel version is released. Conclusion: horrah for nitro :) Horrah for us Belgium linux users, gnehe
Watch my sig change!

in this thread http://forums.gentoo.org/viewtopic.php?t=251449 we found out some nice infos about the big HT with reiser4 problem. it looks like that cko3 is the only patchset which works with ht AND reiser4. You see:

Is it true that nitro4 works the same or does anybody know were the result of cko3 is or I'm (and a few others) the only person who got these freezes with ht and reiser4?

nitro is my favorite patchset, it would be a pleasure if ht works also in it.

Well, i'm using the iteraid patch, but i can surely apply it myself if no one else is using it...

Go to the /var/tmp/portage/ivtv-0.2.0_rc2/work/ivtv-0.2.0-rc2f/driver directory, than open that file (ivtv-driver.c) and change line number 427 from this :
Code:
   itv->vbi_work_queues = create_workqueue("ivtv_vbi");
to this :
Code:
   itv->vbi_work_queues = create_workqueue("ivtv_vbi", PF_SYNCTHREAD);
, than change line 432 too from this :
Code:
   itv->fw_work_queues = create_workqueue("ivtv_fw");
to this :
Code:
   itv->fw_work_queues = create_workqueue("ivtv_fw", PF_SYNCTHREAD);
and than try to compile (now you can't do emerge ..., but you have to use `ebuild /path/to/that/ebuild merge`).

Cheers. 8)

No problems here... yet! Thanks Seppe! BTW, does anyone have any luck compiling lirc with this? I am still at work, but I am looking forward to going home to the latest lirc modules if possible.

It's as stable/quick as nitro2, and doesn't have the SATA bug from nitro3!

Could you please bring back the custom DSDT patch? Nitro is useless without it on my machine... and I don't want to patch it myself every time ;)

Anyway, thanks for the work you put into this. I'm on nitro since 2.6.7 or so, and it worked usually much better than love-sources for me (where are love-sources, anyway? Long time no see...).

1. Download http://ck.kolivas.org/patches/2.6/2.6.9/2.6.9-ck3/patches/supermount-ng207.diff
2. cd /usr/src/linux (which should point to /usr/src/linux-2.6.9-nitro4)
3. patch -p1 < /path/to/supermount-ng207.diff
If you get failed hunks, let me know.. I'll fix them (and I will someday write a full tutorial on 'how to create patches and patch sets" :)

thank you, man. I'm going to apply the patch as soon as I arrive home :) I'm not a kernel hacker but I like to mess with things. If not, I would have chosen Fedora or SuSE ;)
