run as root alsactl store

Looks good. But it would be cool if you could provide a README with the patch so that I can always check that to see what changed instead of having to read through the posts in the forum. Also it would be very nice if you could provide individual patches like andrew does so that you can choose which ones you like and which you don't. Otherwise provide a link to the lkml where the patches was originally posted.

Thanx.

Whoohoo, i finally got 2.6 working!

clean install, 2.6-love2, promise raid, framebuffer, sound, working just fine!

and it only took me 4 kernel compiles on this install :)
(and about 5 on the original install)

only bugs i found were the MCE errors that should be fixed in the final (the patch from linus is already in the files) but keep reappearing

and that uname insists it's love1 :)

Code:

Linux rowan 2.6.0-love1 #4 Fri Dec 26 21:36:23 CET 2003 i686 AMD Athlon(tm) XP 2100+ AuthenticAMD GNU/Linux


great work!

I had to apply the emu10k1 patch manually, if i turn up my speakers i get a very nasty hiss from the middle channel so i hope that will fix it
compiling now
hope i do better than my last foray into love sources (test11-love4) which had no bootsplash or sound.
here goes :P

@grzewho

lirc is not yet included. I just sent the patch to steel300. I hope he includes it in the next release.

Yes, you have to edit the Makefile to change the Extraversion...
I did, now it works fine!

@MouseJockey:
I got midi working with my SB Live and 2.6.0-love1 (will try love2 soon) by compiling sound support, alsa, oss-emulation, and emu10k1 all as modules.

Then emerge awesfx and use the sfxload command to load a sound font. You have to do this because apparently there's no built-in or default soundfont. If you have a Windows install, you should have one or two soundfonts in your windows\system32 directory (they are .SF2 files).

After that you have to make sure it's outputting to your first wavetable device instead of "rawmidi". It's in the sound system section of KDE's control center (for me it's the second in the list of midi devices).

After all that, KMid plays fine for me (except I get no midi sound from the left speaker, everything else plays in both). I couldn't get it to work any other way (for all the 2.6 kernels I've tried). All the sound stuff must be modules, and you need oss emulation. Any other configuration resulted in strange problems, like /dev/sequencer missing or inaccessable.

Oh yeah, you may also need to modprobe snd-seq-oss if it isn't already loaded at boot up.

I've got everything working, that's so nice: 2.6, ATAPI Burning, Webcam and ALSA :)
The next thing is the bootsplash :twisted:

can anyone help me to get my gentoo box running with the newest love sources ? the problem is that i can`t run any services during init, because of acces denied to /var/lib/ini.t . everything runs fine on any other kernel (ck-sources , gentoo-dev sources, and other)

to fix the weird permisions problem you need to unapply this patch :
http://kernel.org/pub/linux/kernel/people/akpm/patches/2.6/2.6.0/2.6.0-mm1/broken-out/access-vfs_permission-fix.patch
just do : patch -p1 -R < access-vfs_permission-fix.patch

peace

Nice work!
But what about making it patchable from the kerneltree? If I try running the patch manually from /usr/src/linux/, it just complains about where the files is.
It should be easy to install it whithout the need of the ebuild. :roll:

For me, patch -p2 < /root/2.6.0-love2.patch worked fine (from directory /usr/src/linux-2.6.0-love2/ containing the vanilla 2.6.0 sources of course)

PostPosted: Sun Dec 28, 2003 5:47 pm    Post subject: ALSA issues Reply with quote

I'm using es1968 driver. When it loads dmesg reports error -12. When probing. I've already upgraded alsa-lib and alsa-util to 1.0.0_rc2. I can manually rmmod snd-es1968 then modprobe es1968, but after fiddling with kernel settings it would lock the whole machine up. I then compiled in the sound drivers instead of as modules and it gets error -12 on probing. I went back to 2.6.0-mm1 and no problems.

My main computer Athlon 1800+ using a Turtle Beach santa cruz with the snd_cs46xx drivers wokrs great, that's the one I want the latest love sources to work on.

This is more of reporting an issue, may be an issue with the latest alsa patches. No big deal for this computer. I'll see with future releases.

Thanks for your contributions to linux!

In case anyone cares... I've updated my script for the new maintainer and the new stable kernel. Here:

Code:
 
#!/bin/bash
#Downloads, builds, installs love-sources.
#Takes secondary num. and love num. as arguments.

export dir=$PWD

qpkg -I -nc -v love-sources | grep beta${1}-r${2}
if [[ $? -ne '0' ]]
 then
  Xdialog --infobox 'Selected version not installed, emerging.' 0 0 5000
  cd /usr/local/portage/sys-kernel/love-sources

  Xdialog --infobox 'Downloading and digesting ebuild.' 0 0 5000
  find love-sources-2.6.${1}-r${2}.ebuild &> /dev/null
  if [[ $? -ne '0' ]]
   then
    wget http://www.public.iastate.edu/~jpcox/linux/patches/2.6/2.6.${1}/2.6.${1}-love${2}/love-sources-2.6.${1}-r${2}.ebuild || exit
  fi
  find files/digest-love-sources-${1}-r${2} &> /dev/null
  if [[ $? -ne '0' ]]
   then
    ebuild love-sources-2.6.${1}-r${2}.ebuild digest || exit
  fi
  Xdialog --infobox 'Emerging ebuild.' 0 0 5000
  emerge love-sources || exit
 else
  Xdialog --infobox 'Selected version already emerged, proceeding.' 0 0 5000
fi

Xdialog --infobox 'Configuring and compiling.' 0 0 5000
cd /usr/src/linux-2.6.${1}-love${2}/
zcat /proc/config.gz > .config || cp /usr/src/.config .

Xdialog --yesno 'Do you want to configure?' 0 0
if [[ $? -eq '0' ]]
 then
  make xconfig || exit
fi
make
make modules_install
mount /boot || true
make install || true

Xdialog --infobox 'Relinking, emerging nvidia-kernel.' 0 0 5000
rm /usr/src/linux
ln -s /usr/src/linux-2.6.${1}-love${2}/ /usr/src/linux
emerge nvidia-kernel || exit


cd $dir

Xdialog --msgbox 'All done!' 0 0



You'll want to have Xdialog and gentoolkit emerged.

Use like this: lovebuild.sh 0 2
for 2.6.0-love2. If you wanted, say, 2.6.12-love5, you would type:
lovebuild.sh 12 5.

Provided, of course, you called it "lovebuild.sh".

. Added the adaptec SCSI driver update from Justin. There's some
disagreement over whether the changes in this patch are appropriate, but we
may as well get some external testing underway.

. Included an update from the ieee1394 team. Anyone who was having
firewire problems, please retest.

. A couple of patches here should fix the CDROM-related problems which
some people saw in 2.6.0-mm1.

ROFL, oh well guess I shouldn't have waited to hit enter on that last posting, I didn't see this until I'd submitted. As far as I know Steel is still on vacation and we won't be seeing an update until the beginning of January.

Can you not try and apply the love-sources specific patches to mm2? then get the proper version when steel300 comes back
