Sorry for replying this late, been really busy with studies... and completely forgot to work on the project. Work has been done this afternoon sticking to the suggested solution (which is the only reasonable anyway :)), CDs uploaded to the test restricted area. I've included all of the USB host controllers, usbhid and all the "special HID devices" quirks + kernel update to 2.6.29.2. kernelOfTruth, Jupiter1TX, could you please verify that this time your keyboards do work? Thanks a lot

Cheers,
Neo2


no prob Neo2 study has highest priority :)

I'll test it this evening (or earlier if time permits)

thanks for updating the discs

I just tested the amd64 disc and both worked (mouse and keyboard)

there was no need to load any modules manually compared to the previous ones

good job :)

(is there any difference in the x86 livecd so that I'll need to test it too ? I'll most probably will first be able to test that this evening or tomorrow if study allows)

now it can gold :D

No, there are no differences between the two. They share identical configuration except when needed (that is: naming, and some kernel features which are available only in a particular arch).

Given the amd64 works, I'll make them available by this evening (forgot to add the copyright/licensing phrase about truecrypt in this test one).

Cheers,
Neo2

ps: sorry for late response, didn't get the usual mail...

*bump*
No new liveCD version, but some updates available.
I'll be on holidays from 30th of July to 11th of August, without laptop/connection (need some rest xD). You will certainly get no support or answers during that period. Anyway, if you need something, just write on the forum or by email, I'll read when I'm back :wink:

Hi all guys!
I'm compiling installcd-stage2 right now, so stay tuned for the new release :wink:
Major features include 2.6.31 kernel & GCC 4.4.1.
Unfortunately, I had to drop acx (and consequently acx-firmare, since it would be useless). As of now, there is no updated driver available both for the old networking stack and the newer one, and development seems to have stagnated at around August 2008 even in the devel repositories. I tried bumping to 0.3.38 and hope that it would compile with only some minor problems (which I may have been able to fix), but unfortunately getting it to compile would mean getting knowledge of data structures and functions, thus probably rewriting a lot of code. For people still using acx, here is a list of cards that are known to work with it and for which support is not guaranteed (unless trying ndiswrapper).
Madwifi has seen a snapshot marked 20090529, which doesn't compile with 2.6.31, that's why is being left out again until proper fixes show up.
Assuming the amd64 target will build fine, I should be able to test them and upload them both by this evening.

Cheers,
Neo2

Done, the new release is out. At the homepage you'll find all of the news.
Please note that there are no available stages shipped with them, you'll have to wait a day or two for the automatic rebuild to complete.

Cheers,
Neo2

Can you load this into ram instead of having to keep the disk in the tray?

You mean the "docache" boot option?
It's been a while since I last used those CDs and I recall them working correctly. So yes, it should be possible. Once you have booted with the "docache" option and you are at the shell prompt, simply do:
Code:
umount /mnt/cdrom
eject /dev/sr0


Some info about the next release: the reiser4 kernel patch for 2.6.32 hasn't been released yet (the "official" one that can be found at this link). I'm waiting for it to be released or to correctly diff it from the zen-sources kernel (I tried doing so but I get non-trivial errors when compiling). Anyway in both cases if I'm unable to patch it I'll just stick with 2.6.31 kernel.
For those of you speculating, no, zen-sources is not a choice since I already had it failing with reiser4 yesterday on a simple umount. I'm hoping it's only the BFS scheduler that's messing up things.
One thing I love about 2.6.32 is indipendent block-device queueing (instead of the old pdflush method) and it would be a great performance boost for the disk operations usually done from a liveCD. I'm sure I would regret to leave it behind.
If anybody can provide a working reiser4 patch for 2.6.32 kernel I would be very grateful.

Cheers,
Neo2

Thanks kernelOfTruth, I was just about to begin the rebuild since the stages are ready :)
I noticed there's also the 2.6.33 patch out. I'll take that instead :P

Cheers,

nice 8)

so I assume it's going to be a 2.6.33 release ? :D

could you also please add sys-fs/btrfs-9999 (just unmask it and emerge), hopefully that emerges and works fine ...

there have been so many changes from 0.19 meanwhile ...


thanks !

Yep, you can count on that. 2.6.33's out, 2.6.33 gets used.

Apart from that, I have some problems with the damn glibc-2.11-r1. Somehow, somewhy, it stops building. I try to build installcd-stage1 and x86 crashes with sandbox errors. There's something *very* weird going on. I'm actually thinking of:
a) using stable stages to start from
b) trying to downgrade gcc only for liveCD build
c) trying to force ~arch on catalyst and build with latest unstable
If the current "tweaked" build fails, I'll begin with c), then try with b) and then a).

kernelOfTruth, do you know if virtual/linux-sources (eg. installed kernel sources) is required to build btrfs? Thank you very much.

Cheers,
Neo2

Hi Neo2,

not that I know of:

Quote:
DEPEND="debug-utils? ( dev-python/matplotlib )
acl? (
sys-apps/acl
sys-fs/e2fsprogs
)"
RDEPEND="${DEPEND}"


(that's from sys-fs/btrfs-progs-9999)


I couldn't get latest glibc to work as well, try downgrading the gentoo patchset of current glibc to 3:

http://omploader.org/iM3Q5dA <-- link to my glibc overlay, use it if needed


if you haven't already - could you please add pbzip2 ?

that would be really useful when using dual-, quad- or poly-core boxes

from my experience p7zip doesn't scale / work that well

Thanks :)

@kernelOfTruth:
always very helpful, thanks *A LOT* for the information on glibc. I'll apply instantly and let you know ASAP :wink:
pbzip2 will be added on the fly =)

Cheers,
Neo2

Ok, this is extremely weird. This one is at the top of weirdness I think.
I made an image file and formatted it with reiser4, mounted as loop, moved all catalyst working files there and.... guess what? It works!!
There must be something wrong with XFS and 2.6.33-zen0, the server rebuilt the stages perfectly on XFS and it's running 2.6.32.9 + grsec. But every my partition is on XFS and hasn't shown any problems... WTF?
Now I'm waiting for zen unstable tree to be updated to latest official kernel release and then test it.
In the meanwhile, stage rebuilding keeps going. If everything goes well, expect new information for tomorrow :wink:

Cheers,
Neo2

Installcd-stage1 running towards completion, I really hope I'll be able to setup the kernel and do the testing by this evening.

Hi Neo2,

I'm not a btrfs-expert in any way, so could you please post your question again in the btrfs thread:
New filesystem: Btrfs!

Thanks ! :)

Done :wink: Now waiting for a response.
Progress: installcd-stage1 ready (and waiting for "approval" :P). Since the installcd-stage2 requires a bit of effort (kernel messes&co.) I'll wait until Wednesday (busy schedules @ university).

Cheers,
Neo2

Hi Neo2,

before it's too late:

is sys-fs/cryptsetup at version 1.1.0 ?

if not could you please update it ? (I just saw while looking through system files)

it includes lots of stability and security enhancing fixes which is helpful also at creation of encrypted partitions and/or drives :idea:

thanks !

cryptsetup is part of the installcd-stage2, so it'll wait until tomorrow =)
If I recall correctly, it is already added to the unmasked package list (I had problems in previous builds). Will check for that anyway :wink:
About btrfs-progs: I decided to include the live ebuild as it contains some important/functional fixes, but not to enable acl use flag (it only adds support for in-place conversion from ext4).

Cheers,
Neo2
