FAQ wrote:

-- Love sources FAQ --
Orginally written by: Love-sources team
Revision by: predatorfreak

Q: I have a black-sreen freeze after startx
A: Please try and compile the kernel without vesa-tng support enabled (built-in/module).

Q: Why real time preempt and Ingosched are in Love-Sources now ?
A: Ingosched has the most testing because is tested by all vanilla users.
It is also defulat Linux 2.6 CPU Scheduler and it is pretty stable now.
Ingosched development also doesn't sleep, look into -mm tree for example.
real time preempt is an extension by Ingo Molnar to provide a kind of real time preemption.
Default mode is: "Low Latency Destkop Mode" and Hard/Soft IRQs threadings are disabled.
full real time mode isn't required for overall destkop usage
so we decided to make low latency destkop mode the defualt mode in love.


Q: How to use the RT rlimits patch for Linux Audio?
A: please follow this nice how-to -> http://www.steamballoon.com/wiki/Rlimits

Q: So, where did Reiser4 go?
A: Away

Q: Why?
A: A number of reasons, the love sources team strive to bring you the
best desktop experience and Reiser4 can greatly degrade interactivity and
increase cpu usage. It's illogical to have a CPU Scheduler oriented towards reduced
latencies and filesystem with high latencies.
It's also operating under several wrong assumptions on things
like page table sizes. Reiser4 also doesn't support architectures
aside from x86/x86-64 and doesn't run on the 4kb stack size.

Q: So now that love-sources isn't going to support Reiser4 what do I do?
A: Compile one of the great number of Reiser4 enabled kernels, like
Andrew Morton's mm tree, which is even in portage.

Q: Why are you pulling Reiser4, it's the base of Love-sources?
A: Actually it's not, when love-sources started it was in large part to
research how to allivate the famous music lag bug. A bug that Reiser4
ironically introduces again.

Q: Okay so I shouldn't use Reiser4, what then?
A: Ext3 with dir_index is a much better universal filesystem for a desktop since
it performs nicely and has really good latency. Aside such likable
qualities as stability , it has been developed for "ages" in comparision to Reiser4.

Q: I'm an ext3 user, but how can I check or enabled the dir_index feature?
A: Please check if you have it in the superblock by using this line:
1) my_box# tune2fs -l /dev/hdaXY
if You should receive a line like this one with dir_index enabled:
Filesystem features: has_journal dir_index filetype needs_recovery sparse_super
then you have it enabled.
if not, please use:
1) tune2fs -O dir_index /dev/hdXY
2a) updatedb
or
2b) e2fsck -D /dev/hdXY

Q: I'm a Laptop user, I want to increse my battery life-time, what should I do ?
A: Use JFS as your filesystem, It has less cpu usage (definatly better than reiserfs/reiser4)
and your battery lifetime will be increased up too 30% more then reiserfs/reiser4.
In Love-Sources there are also up too date fixes for it.

Q: Okay, I'm interested in better interactivity, I can resign from using reiser4 for this.
Now I'm using other filesystems (we recommend you use ext3+dir_index).
Which IO Scheduler should I use?
A: Please try the CFQ-TS IO scheduler (default in love-sources).
This is a Completly Fair Queuing IO Scheduler which gives you optimal destkop interactivity
even in heavy filesystem usage.

Q: What about Nvidia and Ati fixes?
A: In the current love there are no Nvidia or Ati fixes.
Please use Driver side fixes from the net (there are many fixes).
If you're an Nvidia user, Many of the good fixes are in Gentoo Portage.
minimum kernel driver required to run this release is nvidia-kernel-6629-r4.

playfool's guide to make ATI work:
1) get the ati source code GPL'ed
2) enjoy a working driver
(for the guide to make nvidia work, just replace the word

yeap is kicked out temporary.
because of problems we had with 2.6.12-rc5-love1.
I reversed new inotify fix from it ( because of oops ) .
inotify can be in releation with many other patches , so we decided to not include it in this release, becuase we dont want to have this risk now.
prioryty for this release is to kick potential buggy or untested stuff to provide stable kernel.

Works fine here, including hal (I patched the kernel with inotify-0.23-rml-2.6.12-rc4-8 :P). Thanks for your great work! :D

Could you include obsd-netrand next release? I think it's a nice and harmless (performance- and breakage-wise) patch. :)

http://kerneltrap.org/mailarchive/1/message/14407/flat wrote:
It adds support for advanced networking-related randomization, in concrete it adds support for TCP ISNs randomization, RPC XIDs randomization, IP IDs randomization and finally a sub-key under the Cryptographic options menu for Linux PRNG [2] enhancements (useful now and also for future patch submissions), which currently has an only-one option for poll sizes increasing (x2).

As it's impact is minimal (in performance and development/maintenance terms), I recommend to merge it, as it gives a basic prevention for the so-called system fingerprinting (which is used most by "kids" to know how old and insecure could be a target system, many time used as the first, even only-one, data to decide if attack or not the target host) among other things.

Hi... Here i get a kernel panic when trying to boot it... Same config as rc5-love1 (which is working here like a charm)... It seems something related to sata driver (sata_sil), but i don't know much about kernel panic messages... I don't know how to copy this error message and paste it here, hope there's a better way than writting it down in a paper...

Edit. My kernel config

maybe libata-2.6.patch helps?


hehe, pretty much running the same patchlist now, only fixes for dcache race are missing. and some more stuff from love1
and also all inotify stuff from -mm is in, including update-2
--> no problems with hal :wink:
(the one from portage, i wont install python 2.4 for gentopia's hal only because of a buggy kernel patch, no way! :))

sorry, was just a guess as fallow had that one in love1, so i added 1+1 :P

maybe try -git update from kernel.org, as it seems to have some fixes for s/ata too...
once more just an idea, but maybe worth trying...

and is not in love2

the patch is from LKML.

the patch in love1 fixes a problem in 64bit-platforms... so i don't think it might be... but i can try applying it...

After that i will try git update... (i see there's an update to sata_sil driver)

Thanks both for suggestions

Edit. Compiled... crossed fingers 8O

yeap :) I want just to say that this is only difference in libata beetwen love1 and love2 :)

will be much easier with oops text, maybe this isnt related to sata , and just one of love1 patches fixing this.

cheers :)

well added inotify patch (trying beagle) and kernel panic disappears... it's strange, but, i
have a sore throat and i'm taking medicines, so it might have been an
operator error... :P

cheers and thanks for helping

let's test this beauty


EDIT. f*ck! compiled it again without sysrq magic and kernel panic
reproduces... So i'm trying it again with sysrq... :?

EDIT2. well... with magic_sysrq it boots flawlessly... i'm disconcerted

Sorry all for yr. time...

It's not love-sources related... i am suffering it with a plain vanilla rc5 kernel...

When i've time i'll look after it to see if it's not really my fault.

cheers
