Download
Ebuild
Patch file

What's new?
Well, not so much. Nitro3 uses nitro2 as a base and make the following changes:
- Update CK2 to CK3 (= Staircase update, some bugfixes and most patches of the -ac6 patch set)
- Win4Lin is included, BUT it could be broken!! it compiles cleanly but I don't think it's going to work (I don't use it myself), take a look in arch/i386/mki-adapter26/mki26.c for a possible solution.
- Software Suspend 2 is included. It isn't necessary anymore to provide this as an addon patch .. this kernel still compiles without problems if you have Software Suspend 2 not enabled.

Thank's to ..
- Apexman for most of the CK2-to-CK3 patches
- Pepek for Win4Lin and Software Suspend 2 patches
Nitro3 wouldn't made it otherwise, I don't have so much time anymore lately :(

Hmm seems to work fine here. Although I'm still getting the "CONFIG_HOTPLUG is not set for this kernel" error, despite the fact that CONFIG_HOTPLUG=y in .config. Still, it all works so I'm not complaining too much.

doh! Got an erroR:
Code:
drivers/media/video/msp3400.c:1555:69: macro "kthread_run" requires 5 arguments, but only 3 given
drivers/media/video/msp3400.c: In function `msp_attach':
drivers/media/video/msp3400.c:1555: error: `kthread_run' undeclared (first use in this function)
drivers/media/video/msp3400.c:1555: error: (Each undeclared identifier is reported only once
drivers/media/video/msp3400.c:1555: error: for each function it appears in.)
make[3]: *** [drivers/media/video/msp3400.o] Error 1
make[2]: *** [drivers/media/video] Error 2
make[1]: *** [drivers/media] Error 2
make: *** [drivers] Error 2


Same config works on past -nitro's, -ck's, and oodles of other kernels. Anybody have this as well?

drivers/char/lirc/lirc_i2c.c:170: error: structure has no member named `c'

patch it msp3400.c in 1555: kthread_run (bla,bla,bla);
add 4th parameter: i2c_client_name(c).

I have gentoo-dev-sources 2.6.9-r1. What should I do to make them nitro3?
Is there some patch for gentoo-dev-sources?

Download the ebuild from http://sepi.be/nitro.php, put it in a PORTAGE_OVERLAY dir (I use /usr/local/portage/sys-kernel/nitro-sources), then do:
Code:
ebuild /usr/local/portage/sys-kernel/nitro sources/nitro-sources-2.6.9-r3.ebuild digest
and then emerge nitro-sources.

Here's what I get:
Code:
[root@beta nitro-sources]# ebuild /usr/local/portage/sys-kernel/nitro-sources/nitro-sources-2.6.9-r3.ebuild digest
!!! aux_get(): ebuild path for 'sys-kernel/nitro-sources-2.6.9-r3' not specified:
!!!            None
!!! aux_get(): ebuild path for 'sys-kernel/nitro-sources-2.6.9-r3' not specified:
!!!            None
doebuild(): aux_get() error; aborting.
[root@beta nitro-sources]#


Any way to fix this?

I really think that some patches should be dropped (especially supermount and like that). In my opinion new nitros are too bloated :|
