Since I updated kernel to .23-r2 fbsplash doesn't work any more...

In the last version of kernel config menu:

Code:
<*>   VESA VGA graphics support
                      VESA driver type (vesafb-tng)  --->
                      (1024x768@75) VESA default mode


Now I've got:

Code:
[*]   VESA VGA graphics support


Is it possible to turn back old option?


fbsplash is not in lastest genpatches and vesafb-tng has been replaced by uvesafb.


Fbsplash has been replaced by fbcondecor and is included in kamikaze2.

What is the status of reiser4 in this kernel.

If i install it from custom-kernels repository, is it (reiser4) stable(functional) or are there any other patches needed? Does it break, or any bugs?

Thanks

I did read the thread, but i didn't know if any patches were added to custom-kernels and how much was fixed in custom-kernels from the time kamikaze2 came out.

I'll wait for kamikaze3 then probably (i might test kamikaze2, too)

custom-kernels is updated to kamikaze2, the latest available. kamikaze3, according to what waninkoko says, will be out as soon as namesys releases the official new patch for 2.6.23. therefore, very soon :D btw, kamikaze2 is already a great kernel, I had a big big performance (also in battery life, +15%) improvement from 2.6.22

looks like gentoo devs & upstream are already aware of these problems.

Is this only me, or did the kernel become more sluggish on .23?

Using the same config, on .22 i could scan forward and backward in amarok with no stuttering. meanwhile on .23 there is always a skip of one second or so.
Could this be CFS related? Or where should i start looking?

kernel-config, if needed.


apart form that, kamikaze is a great patchset. And I think I scared some people from the ck-ML by mentioning that ck-patchset is continue to live for a little longer...

cheers

I guess I have to wait for kamikaze3, and stick to 22-r9 in meantime.

Everything runs great here on my dual core setup, even under load.

Good release :)

vacula: No I'm using a SVN checkout:

svn co http://svn.madwifi.org/madwifi/trunk

then a:

KERNELPATH=/usr/src/linux-2.6.23-kamikaze2 make
KERNELPATH=/usr/src/linux-2.6.23-kamikaze2 make install

Hope this helps (hopefully it won't be to long till ath5k is in a usable state)

The only way i was ever able to get any version of madwifi from svn to work was to actually cd into the mad-wifi version direcory as root while booted to the kernel I wanted to use, and then run make and make install. Even so, with many many versions over the last 2 years it worked less than half the time with many different kernels, and wasn't reliable even when it did compile. I must have tried 20 different svn versions during this time, not to mention those in portage, which almost never worked.

I finally got fed up and went with ndiswrapper, and the windows driver that came on the cd that came with my D-link atheros based card. Never have any problems now, and the signal received from my router on the same hardware is ALWAYS at least 50-75% stonger than I ever got with mad-wifi. Ndiswrapper has been completely reliable, whereas mad-wifi has always been a roll of the dice, and the sgnal was always borderline when it did work.

I've never had any issues with it (except when it deliberately stopped automatically making the ath0 interface)

I have a little script called svn-update which updates portage, layman and all my other overlays whilst pulling the latest code for madwifi and uvc webcam driver building them and installing them all automatically before emerging any updates and prelinking

Comes in v handy

Just wondering if any of the reported problems are due to not having the wireless stack enabled in the kernel

Do you know what this fix comprehends? I am experiencing severe sluggishness since 2.6.23 on normal -gentoo kernels. My mouse and appications lag badly during any sort of disk access.

This is on nforce2 with cfq iosched now, but effect is the same using other schedulers.

Tnx!

EDIT: Ok, never mind... the problem was caused because I had also switched to the newer/experimental pata drivers. Reverting back to old IDE makes it go away.
