It's the new CFQ. I'm thinking of getting rid of that for now.

I was also thinking the same. It might also win us some friends from x86_64, I think it's breaking their compiles (although it looks like just missing syscalls and shouldn't be a big deal to fix).

Is there anyone that actually cares about the extra IO features?

I'd say it's up to the end user to decide which kernel he wants, either he wants a stable one or tries the bleeding edge at his own risk

love-sources ARE bleeding edge (for the most part). That is the original purpose of them. If you don't want it, use something else. That's what choice is for.

Hello Everyone,

I decided to test drive the love sources to see by myself why are they so praised on the forums. So far I've managed to compile and boot without problems, but I wanted to take advantage of the High Refresh Rate patch for frame buffer, but it doesn't seem to work.

I want to use Bootsplash plus vesafb at resolution of 1024x768@85Hz. So far Bootsplash works at the resolution I want, but only at 60 Hz.

Any ideas were is the problem coming from?

Below I include the result of the the script to set the refresh rates and my grub conf:

Code:

# The contents of this file were generated automatically.
# Please do not modify them, unless you are sure what you're doing.

# Format:     HorizontalSyncTotal, HorizontalSyncStart, HorizontalSyncEnd
#             VerticalSyncTotal, VerticalSyncStart, VerticalSyndEnd
#             Flags (0 = hsync+, vsync+; 12 = hsync-, vsync-; 8 = hsync-, vsync+, 4 = hsync+, vsync-)
#             Pixel Clock Rate (Hz)
#             Vertical Refresh Rate (in units of 0.01 Hz)

#define VIDEO_VESAFB_CRTC_DATA

# 320x200 @ 85Hz
        .word   456, 344, 424
        .word   240, 214, 214
        .byte   0
        .long   9302400
        .word   8500
        .space  40

# 640x400 @ 85Hz
        .word   904, 680, 840
        .word   440, 414, 414
        .byte   4
        .long   33809600
        .word   8500
        .space  40

# 640x480 @ 85Hz
        .word   904, 680, 840
        .word   520, 494, 494
        .byte   12
        .long   39956800
        .word   8500
        .space  40

# 800x600 @ 85Hz
        .word   1128, 848, 1048
        .word   640, 614, 614
        .byte   0
        .long   61363200
        .word   8500
        .space  40

# 1024x768 @ 85Hz
        .word   1416, 1080, 1320
        .word   808, 782, 782
        .byte   0
        .long   97250880
        .word   8500
        .space  40

# 1280x1024 @ 59.55Hz
        .word   1736, 1344, 1624
        .word   1064, 1038, 1038
        .byte   0
        .long   110000000
        .word   5955
        .space  40


This is my grub.conf:

Code:

default 0
timeout 30
fallback 1
splashimage=(hd0,0)/grub/splash.xpm.gz

title=Linux Bootsplash (2.6.4 love-sources)
root (hd0,0)
kernel (hd0,0)/kernel-2.6.4-love1 root=/dev/hda2 vga=0x517 splash=silent video=vesa:ywrap,mtrr
initrd (hd0,0)/initrd-lintoo-1024x768

title=Linux (Old Kernel)
root (hd0,0)
kernel (hd0,0)/kernel.backup root=/dev/hda2

you need to chmod +x scripts/vesa_modeline_gen.pl

anwere the questions, then recompile ;)

I am currently running with bootsplash enabled on my 1280x1024@85 vesa frambuffer

hope this helps

I thought about trying the love-sources ebuilds. I can't get the Win4Lin patches to work with either the love-sources nor the mm-sources. I can get the patches to apply manually to ck-sources. When I try to manually apply to the love-sources, there are errors when making the modules. Looks like I'm stuck with either the development-sources for which it applies without errors or the ck-sources.

evil-sources has the win4lin patch included and i have a tracker bug on http://bugzilla.andrewnelson.org (bug #2) because i don't own win4lin, all i know is that the win4lin code compiles cleanly.

Win4lin did not work neither did my bootsplash. I used the same configuration that I use for the ck sources with which win4lin and bootsplash work.

ok, might want to file a bug report with the wolk project (http://sourceforge.net/projects/wolk) because they are the people behind the patch.
