Steel: You forgot to change UTS_RELEASE in version.h. Still says love1.

so we need a new love with the version on Makefile :lol: and reiser4 in menuconfig. I saw that the files exist under fs/reiser4/ .

and I was asking too about Nick Piggin's patches?

OK... didn't get an answer to my last post so i'll check again... what is the correct method of building this kernel using the gentoo tools... downloaded the .ebuild file to usr/local/portage and edited my make.conf to point to that dir... tried to run
Code:
ebuild love-sources-2.6.0-r2.ebuild digest
which is saw someone said to run but that did nothing... sure i could download the 2.6.0-love2.patch.bz2 file manually and patch the gentoo-2.6 sources manually but i'd like to know how to do it the gentoo way... so pls... could someone tell me what to do up to make menuconfig or so...

Want that bootsplash... :wink:

you should have a directory index as in original portage.. you said your dir is /usr/local/portage. You have to put the ebuild in
Code:
/usr/local/portage/sys-kernel/love-sources

then the digest thing
Code:
ebuild <love-sources.ebuild> digest

after that you can do a
Code:
emerge love-sources


correct me if I'm wrong :)

I have a strange problem when I try to modprobe ppp_generic, It always failed with a message about module already in kernel, and I've found that in order to insmod ppp_generic, it need to insmod slhc first, but after slhc was loaded, kernel seem to think that is the ppp_generic module, then ppp_generic cannot be insmoded, if I compile ppp_generic into the kernel, then there is no problem. It happens to both vanilla-2.6.0 and love-sources. does anyone have the same problem? I use module-init-tools-0.9.14, gcc-3.3.2-r2. any suggestion will be appreciated :oops:

Ok. I am up and running on 2.6.0-love2. Good work, Steel300.

However, my DRI is really wacked. It's a Radeon Mobility 7500.

Anything with GL basically works, except that nothing gets erased from the screen. As objects are redrawn, the old version of the objects remains visible, thus causing a "trail" effect. This would seem to have something to do with buffering, I'm guessing. All the XScreensaver GL's screens are effected.

The glxgears program shows the same effect.

My previous kernel (2.6.0-Test11-love2) was fine, so it has to be something new here.

Anyone else noticing this?


I am. I have a Radeon 9100. I see the same problem with 2.6.0-mm1 as well so it seems to be something in the -mm tree. I did not have the problem with 2.6.0-test10-mm and I skipped over 2.6.0-test11-mm so I am not sure exactly when this problem crept in. I wonder if it is just with Radeon cards.

Is it just me, but I left my computer on overnight twice with this kernel
and in the morning both times it locked up, was rinning xscreensaver

Also on first boot it hangs sometimes Initialising Init 3, I thought it was to do with some cdrom stuff I had in my fstab, but it still does it.

I did an xfs_repair but that was ok, nothing in lost+found, I use xfs for /

I see the 'volatile' love sources patches got a mention on latest weekly gentoo newsletter. should it be in portage discussion.

Cool... Worked like a charm this time around... thanks for the help... unfortunately i wont have the time to work/install the new kernel now... jumping on a train in an hour visiting my fiancees family in southern sweden... which mean no computer and no gentoo for the next 5 days... :cry:

THE INHUMANITY OF IT ALL :wink:

One more thing...

Someone wrote that we should use elevator=cfq as kernel config. What exactly does this do? And is there any readme explaining what patches have been applied to the kernel and what they do? The bootsplash i understand, but would like to know what the mm optimizations do exactly..

Thanks again for the help...

There exists different strategies how the kernel could schedule the Input/Output. No single strategy is better than all others in every situation, therefore there exists different such strategies. With elevator= you can select a specific io-scheduler for the kernel to use.

CFG stands for Complete Fair Queuing is one such strategy. There is also the deadline and the sfq (Stochastic Fair Queuing) IO-schedulers.

CFG is optimized for the worst-case, i.e. in average or best-case it's not as good as the others but it's worst-case is better. From Andrew Morton: CFQ is made for multimedia desktop usage only, you want to be sure mplayer or xmms will never skip frames, not for parallel cp reading floods of data at max speed like a database with zillon of threads.

Thus cfq is good for your desktop but not for your database server.

I think a Google search will bring more details (especailly kerneltrap articles) if you are interestet.

Andrew Morton's announce text
lists all patches which are in mm1. There is no description of every single patch, but it's a start, and the names of the patches are often a good indication. To get to know what each single patch does exactly, it is recommended to follow the linux kernel mailing list (some patches are discussed there) and to read of course the source.


BTW, isn't CFQ the default with love-sources?

EDIT: To answer my question: nope default is of course Nick Piggin's anticipatory io scheduler, not cfq! IIRC love-sources started as a testbed for reiserfs4 and Nick Piggin's as-scheduler.

I mailed steel300 a htpc patch, which gives support for dxr3/hp+ card and lirc.

@asimon

Nope, you have to differentate between's Nicks as io scheduler and his CPU scheduler.The latter one was "core" of love sources (not yet inside this release) replacing Con's scheduler, but his as scheduler became default of mainline 2.6.

BTW, the htpc patch is rather for a client, not a server...

Ahh ... thanks for making this clear, I did think of those as one and the same. Guess, I have to do some more reading on these things... :-)

Can't wait for supermount-ng to be implemented.. incredibly useful if you have a USB mass storage device of some kind, particularly jukeboxes.

Yeah, Steel300 forgot to update EXTRAVERSION (again :roll:).

Edit the toplevel Makefile and 4th line down you'll see it. Change to love2, recompile, and boot to new kernel and it'll be updated.

I'm going to test 2.6.0-love2. - never tryed any of the patches in love-sources.

should i disable the other schedulers before the kernel uses the CFG scheduler ?

My sound card has some problem with Love2' alsa.
How could just reverse alsa from love2 to love1?

Thanks!

Anyone knows how to make the volume controls not resetting on every reboot? I have the love2 source and i compiled also drivers into the kernel.
