Alright, here it is, love1! For those who didn't hear, steel300 is on sabbatical until next Sunday, so until then I'm the patch man. I'm a bit rusty, but I think all is well with this release.

Some notes:
- This patch is against 2.6.4-mm1. That means you need a 2.6.4-mm1 kernel tree, and you use this to patch it. There is no ebuild, if someone wants to make it, go right ahead.
- Reiser4 is NOT in this release. The changes in mm were too great to make reiser4 work out in any fashion. I may make a patch that removes parts of mm and adds reiser4. I haven't the time right now though.
- I picked up the patches from the rc2-love1 thread but didn't test as I don't have those devices. A thumbs up from people using those (lirc_i2c and au8820) would be nice.
- Supermount is in. Deal with it.

Other than this, this is pretty much an incremental update. URLs:
http://bssteph.irtonline.org/linux/patches/2.6/2.6.4/2.6.4-love1/2.6.4-love1.patch.bz2
http://bssteph.irtonline.org/linux/patches/2.6/2.6.4/2.6.4-love1/worklog.txt

EDIT #1 and #2:
Be aware that if you use the mm-sources ebuild in portage, that it seems to apply some fixes to mm that I also included. When you do the love patch it will detect this. Say 'n' to reversing and applying anyway, this is normal and should only happen a couple times. darkless points out that if you add -N to your patch command, it will ignore already applied patches. If you're patching against the mm-sources ebuild you can do this and not have to answer any irritating questions. Thanks darkless!

EDIT #3: Ebuild

Ahh, fixing patches for updated sources... if you have problems with pktcdvd or loop, apply this patch:
http://bssteph.irtonline.org/linux/patches/2.6/2.6.4/2.6.4-love1/love1-fixes.patch

lids is busted but it's not as obvious, so I'm working on that.

Any chance of a split out patch of v30.bz2? I prefer the normal scheduler.

You da man.

This is my first go with the love-sources - do I still need to add elevator=cfq in grub.conf or is it enabled by default?

The old radeonfb driver compiles fine. It's just the new one that fails.

I attempted to reverse all the love1 changes to drivers/video (except for the logo), but it didn't help. It must be something in mm1.

ecatmur: cfq is default.

teilo: register_framebuffer needs the device struct passed to it as well. I only had a chance to look at it, I'll try to fix later.
To fix the link error that mafe showed, apply the fixes patch.

For those who need Reiser4 and can possibly survive without -love for a day or two, 2.6.4-ck1 is out and includes: supermount, bootsplash, and reiser4 along with Con's usual patches ...

[edit]For those interested in breaking virtual memory, there are two interesting VM patches out currently:
Andrea Arcangeli's objrmap-core-1.patch -- This patch applies cleanly against 2.6.3, 2.6.3-ck*, 2.6.4, and 2.6.4-ck1
Nick Piggin's vm-split-active-lists.patch -- this patch applies cleanly against 2.6.3-rc2-mm1

Currently, these two patches do not like each other :twisted:

there is no need to renice X, it's just something
extra you can do to get that extra 'oomph' for
your desktop system.

Looks like the love-fixes patch is missing -- the website responds, but I get a 404 now when I try to download the fixes. :?

Luck would have it that I need the fixes patch to compile the new kernel. :)

Exactly chefakito,

I've created a new diff for the patch including mm1 and love1, but without the love1-fixes.patch, we're screwed. I'll see what i can do in the mean time and if love2 isn't released before, we'll have the patch and ebuild up for dl.

EDIT: Here's the situation. You can make this release work as is, but without loops and without dvd packet writing enabled. I'll try to get some hosting up for the patch and ebuild that I have. Its the best I can do right now. Have fun and for those who are skiddish, wait a little bit :wink:

Does this baby also has intelligent nice threading like the 2.6.4-ck1? That would be nice...
