I try to patch this love with software-suspend-2.0.0.105-for-2.6.9-rc1 without luck...
A lot of rejected hunks... and a bzImage compile error :(

One of one: that's not a bug, it's a feature :P

Something like "extra verbose debug messages" in the USB section

Nope it's a bug. OneofOne do a bk pull of the latest usb driver that should fix it.

Hi OneOfOne,
I have a request: Please include the ALPS Glidepoint patch from the Synaptics package. It applies cleanly to all kernels I have tried but it is frustrating to have to apply it manually each time I try a new kernel.

This patch is required to get the ALPS touchpad on several laptops going.

You can get the Synaptics package here - the patch is included in the archive.

Hi! :D

OneOfOne applied the configurable-hid-mouse-polling-patch for 2.6.8, instead of the 2.6.9 one, so apply this patch if you want it to actually work:

On the usb front, my mouse works, but my flash drive doesn't ("mount: I could not determine the filesystem type, and none was specified") and neither does my external (usb) hard drive ("mount: wrong fs type, bad option, bad superblock on /dev/sda1, or too many mounted filesystems")

They both work with 2.6.7-rc1-love1, but not 2.6.7-rc1-love[1|2] (and with windows ;))

grepping for fat and usb in in the diff of the 2.6.7 and 2.6.9 configs doesn't show anything that I think could cause this

What love should I try so that I can use these drives and resier4?

@metal leper:
thats weird... no one else reported any problems related to fat.
would you run cfdisk on the drive and see if it reports it right or not? (dont delete or modify anything, just see if it lists the stuff right).

This is interesting, cfdisk /dev/sda gives:

FATAL ERROR: Bad primary partition 0: Partition begins after end-of-disk
Press any key to exit cfdisk

For both of them

But, fdisk -l correctly reports their size (120GB and 256MB), but then lists partitions (/dev/sda1p1 /dev/sda1p2 etc), that all look roughtly like this:

Code:
/dev/sda1p1  ?   3749905   4813258   272218546+   20   Unknown
Partition 1 has differenct physical/logical beginnings (non-Linux?):
phys=(356, 97, 46) logical=(3749905, 3, 15)
Partition 1 has differenct physical/logical endings:
phys=(357, 116, 40) logical=(4813257, 14, 19)
Partition 1 does not end on cylinder boundary


(both disks ony have 1 partition on them)

I assumed that the problem was due to something USB related rather than fat related. I have a spare partition that I could convert to fat if I knew how though

update: just compiled 2.6.8-rc4-love2, and I have the same problem

Ok, rocks nicely, also I don't understand, what this CacheFS exactly does, but it kills reiser4 (kernel panic), so better to let it disabled.

BTW No idea, what this nforce2-*.diff was all about. I have a nforce2 mobo here, but everthing seems to be working normally. If if was indeed something performance enhancing, why not leave it in the love patch-set? (lots's of people have nforce2 motherboards)

I also have an nforce2 mobo, and almost everything is working fine. The ati-drivers ebuild doesnt' seem to play nicely. The build comepletes, but with a nice string of errors and the module fails to load. When I get back later toight I'll do the proocess again and post some text. Also, the radeon drm in-kernel module is broken too it seems. When the fglrx module wouldn't work I tried the inkernel one, and the comp wouldn't boot into entrance. I had to change my /usr/src/linux symlink and rebuild the fglrx module with gentoo-dev-sources and laod it to get back into my gui. Did I miss something in the release notes that says this stuff shouldn't work?

It's a problem with all the kernels based on 2.6.9 mm-sources I believe - there are newer ebuilds floating around these forums somewhere (I'm using the NVIDIA one) 8)

Hi OneOfOne,
I have a request: Please include the ALPS Glidepoint patch from the Synaptics package. It applies cleanly to all kernels I have tried but it is frustrating to have to apply it manually each time I try a new kernel.

This patch is required to get the ALPS touchpad on several laptops going.

You can get the Synaptics package here - the patch is included in the archive.


H�an

sure, sorry for the delay, didn't notice your post before.

@mfkr79 sorry again, didnt notice the post, that sounds like usb/hotplug issue, i'll look into it and if i find anything i'll release an update patch.

@krejler thanks for the patch.

@snekiepete this a known issue with unknown fix, it works fine for a lot of people and doesnt work for others.

@Master One good point, gonna include them back.

@Genn :
ebuild /usr/portage/media-video/ati-drivers/ati-drivers-3.11.1.ebuild unpack
go to /var/tmp/portage/ati-drivers*/work/ati-drivers*/ (could be different name under work but you get the idea)
run : sed -i 's:pci_find_class:pci_get_class:g' *
ebuild /usr/portage/media-video/ati-drivers/ati-drivers-3.11.1.ebuild merge
like Isaiah said, this is a problem with mm-* (or actually problem with closed source drivers).

if i find a fix for any of these problems i'll post asap.

join us in #love-sources if you need more direct help or other needed patches.

peace
