@ L124RD

Many thanks for your reply, I did fix the missing 802 file situation but when i diffed the file to make the patch it wasn't picked up (no idea why but there we go)

Anyway, if people are having trouble with the ipw2100 compile then enter the follwing code for a simple fix:
Code:
cp /usr/include/linux/802_11.h /usr/src/linux-2.6.7-love5/include/linux/

This simply copies the missing file to the correct location in the kernel, then a recompile will sort it out.

Obviously L124RD has a more comprehensive fix and I'll try to make sure it is included in the next love (providing I do that patch)

HTH :D

@teutzz doubt it, but staircase doesnt work with new -mm5 anyway.
the update patch includes new nicksched.

I'm hoping that situation will change soon because i just e-mailed Con asking for a patch for staircase made against -mm5, i'm still waiting to hear back from him.

I'm curious: which bootsplash and vesafb-tng patches did you test out for love5?

Right now I'm running 2.6.7-love5 with:

bootsplash-3.1.4-sp2-2.6.7
vesafb-tng-0.9-rc2-2.6.7

Both applied cleanly and work fine for me. Then again, I usually have more luck at this than most people (lucky at kernels, unlucky at love, as the saying goes... :)).

So if anyone's itching for some adventure:

http://www.bootsplash.de/files/bootsplash-3.1.4-sp2-2.6.7.diff
http://dev.gentoo.org/~spock/projects/vesafb-tng/vesafb-tng-0.9-rc2-2.6.7.patch.bz2

My specs for reference:
Athlon TBird 1400
IWill KA266-r (ALi magik chipset)
GeForce3: Using the new 6106 nVidia drivers

PS: bootsplash-3.1.4-sp2 is "better" because it was made to be framebuffer independant, so you can run it on things besides vesafb (like rivafb or radeonfb).

hmmm, interesting, as i can't get bootsplash to work using 2.6.7-mm5 + vesafb-tng-0.9-rc2-2.6.7 + bootsplash-3.1.4-2.6.7-mm5...
so the only difference is the bootsplash version, guess i'll try that one and see how it goes....

If I start with a default .config file I can compile successfully. Does anyone know what kernel config setting would cause the reisfer4/debug.c file to fail to compile?

Frodg, are you sure you don't have gnome in your USE flags? To me, it looks like the hal-cvs ebuild has gnome enabled.

I can't see gnome there explicitly - do use a couple of gnome apps that need some gnome stuff but not much.

I use fluxbox and as many non-gnome apps as possible....

I would love to use ivman (having read all there is) but it seems to want to use all the gnome -base stuff and others..... and I want to keep this pc as lean as possible :)

It's official: I'm an idiot.

I did get vesafb-tng to work, for what it's worth. Removing the rrc patch and applying tng went fine for me, and as far as I can tell, it boots fine.

Bootsplash I applied and fixed by hand, but it still doesn't compile right off the bat. When I "fixed" the code to compile, it boots, but it automatically ignores the initrd and goes with a plain fb console. Once the bootsplash init script runs, though, my framebuffer got reset to some strange, non-standard resolution, and my attempts to use fbset to change the resolution just froze the console, and I had to use the magic sysrq button to escape.

So bootsplash needs work (there are fbcon changes in mm4 and mm5). I don't know what problems people are having with vesafb-tng, though. It seemed to work fine to me.

I apologize for getting your hopes up. :)

Just thought I'd clue anyone in who's experiencing issues not being able to access www.gentoo.org, bugs.gentoo.org, or dev.gentoo.org. Some weird bug exists in mm-sources, I'm honestly not sure if it affects everyone or not. If you want to fix it though here are the commands that fixed it for me.

Code:

   sysctl -w net.ipv4.tcp_moderate_rcvbuf=0
   sysctl -w net.ipv4.tcp_default_win_scale=0


And one other thing....

Okay so this hasn't came up yet, which really suprises me, but I'll go ahead and see if anyone else is noticing this. Me, redeeman, and possibly one other person for sure are experiencing a weird "cap" on our internet connection as a result of the kernel. I started noticing it with mm4 I believe, and mm5 actually got worse. mm4 my downloads were seemingly limited to 47KB/s downstream (normally 360KB/s), mm5 they're capped around 20KB/s.... 2.6.7-mm* seems to have been having lots of problems as of late, hopefully Andrew fixes it up soon.

ahhh ok, nevermind then... :) that seems like the same sort of problems i was having trying to get it to work... i also got a framebuffer console using vesafb-tng, but bootsplash does nothing....
but i think the problem is with the combination vesafb-tng and bootsplash... as i got them to apply cleanly to 2.6.7-mm5 but still i had the same problems..

I too have noticed a "slowdown" to the 47K rate, however I have been fortunate enought to hit one server (ftp.ndlug.nd.edu) that is currently pumping bytes to my machine at the rate of 62K. I usually get around 160K.:?

Ok my downloads have been limited to 15k, first i though it was something to do with my connection, but it works fine with the old love..

So there has to be something spooky with the new love 8O

it's a bug in -mm5, no fix so far but it works fine here so i'm not sure.
I'll try that bootsplash patch, thanks for telling me about it.
-tng is well..... I cant even boot with it on so i really dont know about including it.
frodg : use redeeman's cvs repo for hal-cvs/dbus-cvs, if you cant then edit hal-cvs's ebuild and remove gnome-python deps, it'll work perfectly.
I'm anti-gnome myself and ivman works fine with disabling gnome deps.

CaribbeanKnight: he releases them on lkml now, -np patchset.
On0w1c: only enable large key support, everything else is broken.
Raniz: not sure, but it works fine here :(

Robin79: reiser4? need more details, also if you did use reiser4 its VERY bad to go back to pre-2.6.7 reiser4 snapshots, use 2.6.7-rc3-love2 or something.
also try running fsck.reiser4.

the love5 patch seems to work ok.

I tried the update patch, and that gave me nvidia problems. Further examination revealed that register arguments had got itself turned on again. Dunno how that happened. Now all is working apart from bootsplash.

Qingy works! Hooray! :)

Boot time seems to be longer than I'd expect, and there seems to be a bit of sluggishness to X. Nothing compared to the occasional long lags with rc2-2 and rc3-1 mind. It could be purely subjective.

On a slightly different note, did anything come of the suggestion to set up a love sources archive? I know this is bleeding edge stuff, and I don't mind the occasional shaky release - mainly because with love sources, you know there'll be another one along shortly and it won't be too long before you get one that works for you.

But if we're going to get longer release times (and I appreciate that devs have lives too) the some way to get back to the last stable version would be useful.

All that being said: OneOfOne, it's nice to have you (and love) back.

OneOfOne: You can try the bootsplash patch, but I think it won't work. It looks like the fbcon changes in mm4 and mm5 killed it for now.

My problem was that I made a 2.6.7 kernel folder named 2.6.7-love5, and then got distracted, and when i came back I forgot I hadn't patched it. :)

There is an -mm5 patch for the non -sp2 bootsplash on bootsplash.de. I haven't tested them yet, though.

maybe somebody could help me with mounting my win partition,

cant mount it with this kernel :/

fstap entry:
Code:

/dev/hde5               /mnt/win        vfat            owner,uid=1000,gid=100          0 0


this is in my kernel log:
Code:

Jul  2 15:45:00 FireLinuX Unable to load NLS charset cp437
Jul  2 15:45:00 FireLinuX FAT: codepage cp437 not found


worked with 2.6.6-love5 but it seems to be broken for me now :/

Do you have codepage 437 enabled in your kernel config?

It's in Filesystems --> Native Language Support

It's usually enabled by default, but it could have gotten turned off somehow.
