After a suspiciously long half hour, here is 2.6.1-love1 :P
What's included:
  • 2.6.1-mm1
  • Cons VM swappiness
  • Nicks selectable IO scheduler patch
  • Bootsplash
  • Vesa framebuffer refresh rate patch
  • orinoco monitor mode patch
  • packet writing
  • Reiser4
  • Bluetooth patches
  • for the brave, kexec() is included.. :)

No nvidia-agp, it IS back in the kernel.
No ALSA either, -mm1 includes the latest ALSA (1.0.1)
If anyone has the htpc/radeon-igp patches, send me them and I'll put them in.

Get everything here: http://odin.prohosting.com/wedge01/love-sources/2.6.1/2.6.1-love1/

I've also added a broken-out dir which has the individual patches.
Edit: all the patches should now be in there.

Edit #2:
* Removed kexec
* Added nforce2-apic-fix.patch
* Added elv-init-cleanup.patch

Important point, it won't make the digest properly otherwise.

Ebuild is fixed now, so no need to rename the patch if you download it manually.

Compiles fine, rebooting to the new one in a minute.

Nice job Wedge_. I'll patch in the radeon and htpc patches once I get back to the dorms (either later today or early tomorrow). Good idea on the kexec patch, that is one that I was playing with. The rest look good.

Excellent Job.

I didn't bother waiting earlier, so I patched 2.6.1 with -mm1, bootsplash, and cons vm swappiness. I got three hard lockups before reverting to 2.6.1-rc1-love1. (athlon xp 2800+, nforce2, geforce)

I can get a little further with packet writing using this release. The pktsetup program works instead of segfaulting, but it dies when I try to mount the drive :(

Thanks, I won't bother trying to find them then.

Nice work Wedge_ :)

Has the UDF patches changed? or are they the same as the other rc1&2 releases?

Also wondered if it still included the LIRC patches?

cheers

I'm putting the LIRC patches in either today or tomorrow. I'm hoping Wedge_ found the latest UDF Packet writing patches. They are different than the ones that I've used before.

At the moment I'm running 2.6.1-mm1 (might go love1 if I can back reiser4 out). But with this (& 2.6.1rc2-mm1), I'm seeing a big slowdown if the arts server is active. Anyone else noticed this?

Ah, you are still around :) All it says in the changelog was that it was dropped "partly deliberately" then forgotten about. Silly kernel devs :lol:

The patch file is mis-referenced in the ebuild. the cp command I listed earlier will allow you to digest and emerge. Though it patches just fine manually too :)

Ah, sorry about that, I gave it the wrong name when I uploaded it :oops: Fixed now.

It should work normally now. Do "ebuild love-sources-x.y.z digest" and it should download the patch, then emerge normally.

I just noticed we have a naming problem. As last love kernel was 2.6.1-r3 and this is 2.6.1-r1, portage thinks r3 is newer.

So maybe we should discuss a naming scheme to be obeyed. Probably rc kernels shouldn't get stable naming (as 2.6.1-r3 got).

I didn't notice, I'd already deleted most of the older ebuilds.

Sounds good to me.

For anyone who wants to try kexec:
Once you've compiled the kernel with kexec support, you need to get kexec-tools. Extract them somewhere (I didn't make an ebuild, if anyone wants to go ahead), and cd into the directory created. Open kexec/kexec-syscall.c in an editor and look for the line that says
Code:
#define __NR_kexec_load 259

Change it to
Code:
#define __NR_kexec_load 274
then run "make" to compile the tools. This creates two files under objdir/build, sbin/kexec and bin/kexec_test. I'm not exactly sure what kexec_test is supposed to do (you need to run it with "kexec kexec_test") but all it seemed to do was cause a normal reboot. To load a new kernel using kexec, use
Code:
objdir/build/sbin/kexec --command-line="`cat /proc/cmdline`" -l -f /boot/bzImage


You should see a line saying "Starting new kernel", then the usual boot messages should start scrolling past as if you'd just left the bootloader. It doesn't seem to like the framebuffer - it prints the "Starting new kernel" message, then doesn't display anything else, but the system does actually load the new kernel. If you want to try it but have framebuffer enabled, you can just remove the vga=/video= options from your bootloader temporarily, that seems to work for me.

I'm also not sure of the best way to use it. When you run the kexec command, it loads the new kernel immediately, which can screw things up as filesystems don't get unmounted properly, and hardware isn't reset etc. The 3Com NIC on my nForce2 in particular didn't like this, and gave all sorts of errors once the new kernel had loaded. If anyone has suggestions on the best way to go through the usual pre-reboot procedure but to run kexec instead of reboot, please post them.

Could you add DXR3 patch to the next love-sources?

Here they are: http://www.cs.uni-magdeburg.de/~aschultz/dxr3/
