For the moment 16bit is the only supported color depth.

Damn. I knew it had to be something obvious. That's all it was - I had been using vga=0x31B instead of vga=0x31A. Once I changed that, it started working right away. Thanks :wink:

OK, I've got an alternative method to get love3 + vmware running WITHOUT removing the reiser4 patch. As this patch doesn't unapply cleanly, this method maybe alittle bit nicer.

cd /opt/vmware/lib/modules/source
tar xvf vmmon.tar
mv vmmon.tar vmmon.tar-bak
vi vmmon-only/include/compat_mm.h

(add BEFORE LAST #endif)
#define do_mmap_pgoff(f,a,n,p,l,o) do_mmap_pgoff(current->mm, f, a, n, p, l, o)

tar cvf vmmon.tar vmmon-only
rm -rf vmmon-only

You should now be able to run bin/vmware-config.pl as before.
Thanks to Petr Vandrovec on news.vmware.com for this patch.

PS: Petr will not be able to put this into any of the vmware.any.any.XX patches unless the reiser4 patch is included in Linus's kernels.

EDIT: Oh, I'm guessing this will break vmware for any kernels that don't have this new reiser4 included - so take care!

That is certainly the case; only apply the change if using reiser4. It will likely be some time before reiser4 makes it into a kernel proper.

test9-mm4 is out. I -should- try to restrain myself from working on it until tomorrow night, but maybe I'll get tired of studying and release something.

That may be for the best... there were a number of fixes on LKML. And hey, my sound card doesn't want to work with mm4, as stated:

Alright, this is just a little update as I didn't come across any new updates to any of our feature patches.. Anyway!

http://bssteph.irtonline.org/linux/patches/2.6/2.6.0-test9/2.6.0-test9-love4/2.6.0-test9-love4.patch.bz2
http://bssteph.irtonline.org/linux/patches/2.6/2.6.0-test9/2.6.0-test9-love4/2.6.0-test9-love4_notes.txt
http://bssteph.irtonline.org/linux/patches/2.6/2.6.0-test9/2.6.0-test9-love4/love-sources-2.6.0_beta9-r4.ebuild

Only changes are the new mm, and I dropped reiser4 (again)... if anyone wants it, speak now.

Just a reminder, if anyone using love3 had the performance regressions and DIDN'T undo those patches mentioned, this is the release for you, as those problems have been fixed. Enjoy!

--

Exams went well, except for the last one which sucked hard, but oh well.

No reiser4 is fine. Im waiting on the kernel .tar.bz2 to finish downloading and then I'll be giving this a go. I'll report back asap.

I get this nice error:

Hello,
Thanks for everything in advance! I am having some trouble though. I downloaded everything and "digested" the ebuild, but when I emerge it, during the patch process, it stops and constantly asks which file to patch because it cannot find it. Again, thanks for everything!

Michael

I'm working on a bash-script that downloads, compiles, installs, and does stuff for the latest love-sources.

It only works for test-kernels because I'm lazy and don't want to add various heuristics to determine which kind of kernel. If you find any errors, tell me, because I'm no programmer.

Code:
#!/bin/bash
#lovebuild.sh-Downloads, builds, installs love-sources (valid for test kernels only).
#Takes test num. and love num. as arguments.

cd /usr/local/portage/sys-kernel/love-sources
echo 'Downloading and digesting ebuild.'
wget http://bssteph.irtonline.org/linux/patches/2.6/2.6.0-test${1}/2.6.0-test${1}-love${2}/love-sources-2.6.0_beta${1}-r${2}.ebuild || exit
ebuild love-sources-2.6.0_beta${1}-r${2}.ebuild digest || exit

echo 'Emerging ebuild.'
emerge love-sources || exit

echo 'Configuring and compiling.'
cd /usr/src/linux-2.6.0-test${1}-love${2}/
zcat /proc/config.gz > .config
make xconfig || exit
make
make modules_install
mount /boot || true
Xdialog --msgbox 'Error!' 5 15
make install || true

echo 'Relinking, emerging nvidia-kernel.'
rm /usr/src/linux
ln -s /usr/src/linux-2.6.0-test${1}-love${2}/ /usr/src/linux
emerge nvidia-kernel || exit

echo 'Done.'
Xdialog --msgbox 'All done!' 5 15


It's used like this:
lovebuild.sh 9 4 (the two numbers being the test kernel number and the love release number, respectively).

It DOES NOT work right now, because of the patching problem, but hopefully bssteph will fix that soon.

It contains some stuff specific to my machine:
The xdialog 'error' message is used because make-install doesn't detect grub on my machine and stops, asking me to make a bootdisk.
The message notifies me to press 'n'.

Nvidia-kernel, of course, only for nvidia users.

It requires Xdialog (emerge xdialog) and /proc/config.gz to be present, but it's not strictly necessary.

Change '/usr/local/portage' to your overlay directory.

Also, /boot is a separate partition for me, and if yours isn't, then remove the 'mount /boot' line.

Also, it's not fully automated/noninteractive at all.

Tell me of anything I can do to improve it.

The kernel eclass was changed and I forgot about it. Reload the URL, there is a new ebuild.
All the older ebuilds are going to be broken and I'm too lazy to fix them... if you need an old ebuild just rename the current one.

Workin' great so far. Ran into the same problems with patching as the other posters, but the new ebuild cleared all that up. I'll post if I run into any snags, but so far I haven't had that opportunity. :wink:

Oh yeah, I was wondering, are love-sources gonna still be maintained after 2.6.0 actually gets released? Or is this just to hold y'all over until 2.7 starts appearing? 8)

I get a kernel panic at boot (tried to kill init...) with love4. Using the other latest releases I've experienced what I think is poor IO scheduling, making things choppy when some, or little hd activity is present. This was using the cfq scheduler. Any chance this has any relation to the poor hdparm performance?
note: I didn't try love3.
Strangely test5-love3 has provided me with the best performance yet.

I actually am using reiser4... I've been using the mm sources because the love patches with reiser were dying on boot.

What would it take to patch love4 with reiser4?
I tried a few things but it's still dying.

It's my understanding that devfs will not be a part of the 2.7 kernels. I assume that this would mean that Gentoo users will need a special patch to run ANY post 2.6 kernel. That is, unless udev, is ready by then, which I doubt. If thats is the case then I think we'll end up with more than just Love-Sources to choose from (though love-sources rocks).

udev will be ready, hell I used ithe 005 release and it ran just fine - I have great hopes for udev as a devfs replacement,

udev has enough support on LKML as a much better implementation than devfs that it will be ready before 2.7 becomes a real consideration. That leads to the next question. I'm more interested in keeping up with 2.6 for a while than jumping straight to 2.7... I've stuck with 2.[5|6] for a while now, and I'd like to reap the benefits of it before going to 2.7, which I assume will be unfit for serious use right out of the gate.

ledskof:
There are some conflicts in patching love with reiser4, mainly that you'll have to change a couple function calls in fs/reiser4/plugin/cryptcompress.c and fs/reiser4/plugin/file/file.c:
Quote:
generic_write_checks(inode, file, off, &count, 0); becomes
generic_write_checks(file, off, &count, 0);

The patch fails are all safe to just merge manually, I think.

This kernel runs fine here, damn fast running gnome, cant wait for proper 2.6.0 final. Very good.

only slight problem is when using my camera to upload pictures using mass storage usb device , I can only do it once! , if i disconnect power to camera I cannot use it anymore until reboot, get this on dmesg
(dont know if this have been long running through other test kernels, just tried my camera out today)

Thats great about udev, I thought that it was not ready for primetime yet. Regarding tatesworld's problem. I cannot get USB mass storage to work 100% correct, but it sounds like your problem can be solved by typing

I'd like an option like --iron-man (or something like that *g*), which does an emerge -P love-sources and removes everything that emerge won't. BTW, will make install backup your old kernel?
