REISER4 PEOPLE: TURN OFF 4K STACKS!
Code:
2.6.11-rc1 #newest kernel version
-ac4/7 #alan cox's patchset
reiser4 #newest snapshot with extra patches
vesafb-tng #still works
-fbsplash #broken
chmp #usb mouse polling patch
-sk98lin driver #sk98lin network driver
inotify #newer version
-swsusp2
-mm1
config-nr-tty-devices
cflags-selection-for-nitro #change cflags for kernel
-hostap #included in main
-ckdev #latest ck patch
-alsa 1.0.8-rc2
swsusp2+win4lin #see note
-orinoco  #included in main
================================
+ck1
+alsa 1.0.8
+bootsplash #crazy kernel devs...
+mm1
+genetic scheduling #you don't even want to know how long it took
+16k stacks
+lufs


Alright, I know I said that I wasn't going to do this, but I lied. The reason I numbered it nitro0 is because it's not really a full release. rc1 just came out, and things are a bit sketchy. The reason I named it "Back To The Basics" is because I had to run it in console mode for a while.

EDIT: NVIDIA DRIVERS WORK!!! Big thanks to tycurise and fallow for pointing out that you need to use kernel agpgart, not nvagp for this kernel. Works perfectly now!

As for other functionality, everything works in this kernel. Reiser4, swsusp2+win4lin, 16k stacks (I hacked the menuconfig a bit, so it might get weird if you're playing with the option for it and 4k stacks).

Bootsplash is back! Remember that other method of displaying a picture on your framebuffer (or as I refer to it, "the method that actually WORKS")? Those crazy kernel devs have put it into this release. That's good and bad. Good for me, because it finally lets me have a nice splash screen when I boot up. Bad for some, because it broke fbsplash horribly and I couldn't get it in. In order to use bootsplash, you have to use vesafb (NOT vesafb-tng).

I updated the alsa version in this to 1.0.8. Very minor update since the base version for rc1 is 1.0.8_rc2. All audio problems should now be fixed since there's about 6 new versions of staircase in this one compared to 2.6.10-nitro4.

hostap/sk98lin/orinoco patches are out for the time being since they seem to be actively integrating them into main. Couldn't test it since I don't have the hardware, but it seemed to compile alright.

I changed the USE flag. Now if you want the "e" version (it will even say it when you boot into it now), you need to use the "want-experimental" flag. I did this because there might come a time when the e version of nitro won't contain mm patches. want-experimental is disabled by default.

I put the genetic scheduling algorithm into the experimental version. If you want it, you gotta go for that version. New stuff will almost always go there first. To enable it, you need to enable the genetic library in library functions, then the scheduler itself in block devices->io schedulers. It will be used instead of the regular as scheduler if it's enabled.

Lufs patches are in as well.

I think that about covers everything regarding this release...

Hopefully someone out there will enjoy it!

EDIT: Install directions courtesy of BlinkEye:
Quote:

1. download the ebuild
2. mkdir -p /usr/local/portage/sys-kernel/nitro-sources
3. mv the ebuild to /usr/local/portage/sys-kernel/nitro-sources (or wherever your PORTDIR_OVERLAY points to)
4. open /etc/portage/package.keywords (if it doesn't exist create it)
5. add "sys-kernel/nitro-sources ~x86" without the quotes and with the appropriate architecture (for me its ~x86")
6. ebuild nitro-sources-2.6.10-r4.ebuild digest
7. emerge nitro-sources
8. cd /usr/src/ and behold your nitro-sources

Hehe,

You have been busy - just a quick one though, the ebuild link is wrong:

it needs a _ not a - in the kernel name.

Good work :D

Edit: You fixed it so all is well with the world.

The reason for this is that nvidia drivers will not work with this release as of right now. They'll compile fine, they'll load fine, but then X will hang when you try to start it.

Nope, they'll compile fine, they'll load fine, and they'll work fine! At least for me.
Im running nitro0e and Nvidia 6629 on Slackware 10. Im using reiser4 so im sticking to 8k-stacks.
It rocks for me :) besides i have to switch to bootsplash :evil:

word of warning in the fast moving world of nitro.

I seem to be having R4 issues with 2.6.10 n2 adn n4.

Some ebuilds failing the work on 2.6.9-nitro1 and just had one R4 partition go to bits. Got _most_ but not all of it back with rebuilding sb adn fs .

I will be more specific when I can post concret info , but thought I should flag a warning so others can be on their guard.

HTH. 8)

PS using 8k stacks as I have been always . using R4 for almost a year w/o issues on this system.

I`m also using genetic anticipatory now :)
waiting for sync for new version of genetic lib by J.Moilanen

the new version might by much better.

my result`s , 2.6.11-rc1-vv_e1 (vivid)
Code:

generation_number:      809
num_children:           8
child_number:           0

Gentree i had the same happen to me with nitro3.... rebuilding the sb then the fs didnt correct the issues i was having so i nuked and started over... i had run nitro2 for a bit and it was the swithch to nitro3 that seemed to cause this... maybe it was something carried over into nitro4 that is producing this for you?

Nvidia only works with agpgart driver for now (actually not 100% sure, i might be wrong).

This could be the same issue we've seen in nitro0.
As i cant rmmod agpgart, and im too lazy to reboot :roll: , somebody please check that.
However I'm confident that "CONFIG_AGP=m" solves the problem (it might also be necessary to change the "NvAGP" option in xorg.conf though)

I think that the problem is releted to all 2.6.11-rc1 based kernels.
I tested another 2.6.11-rc1-bk* based kernel , vivid.
It`s working with nv6629 (~x86 portage) and agpgart ( static,via)
without it , nvagp doesn`t work.

however I`m using agpgart as standard ;)

cheers.

Well, lets wait for Darckness, to verify it and to update his post.
IMHO they are not less capable than any of the previous nitro-sources and work very well. So dont get irritated by the "0"; use agpgart and everything should be fine.
Only drawback is that you have to switch to bootsplash.

big thx Darckness

does the reiser4 patches include the /sys/fs/reiser4 junk so I can run repacker because I am using .10-nitro4 and I cant find the repacker

rmh3093: couldn't tell you because I don't use reiser4. This has the latest patches for it that I could find though. Give it a try and let me know.

what would be the proper way of creating a patch that will apply cleanly to your kernel... I have modified the pci/quirks.c so that my SMBus card shows up in lspci and I want to make it a patch so I dont have to cut and paste

Hello guys,

thanks for a new nitro-sources version. But I've a question, since kernel 2.6.10 there are these "CPU schedulers" options, what are they good for? Or better, what is a scheduler? Can i get perfomance improvements with them?

rmh3093: copy the linux-2.6.11-rc1-nitro0{e} directory so that there are two of them; one you'll be modifying, the other will be the base which has no changes (like you just emerged it). Change the one that you're going to modify, then run
Code:
diff -urN (old dir) (new dir) > patchfilename


Make sure (BEFORE YOU RUN DIFF) that you do 'make mrproper' in both trees and clean out any .rej/.orig files that may have cropped up. If you want (and it doesn't break anything) I'll include your patch in future nitros ;)

coin: I found a site a long time ago which gave a really good explanation of all that, but it seems to be evading me at the moment. I'll try to find it again though (I'm really bad at explaining stuff :-/)

Thanks for reporting back, it helps to know others have seen the same thing.

I've had quite a few changes brought in by updates since early Jan so it could be a whole heap of things that caused my prob and I just saw the changes included an update from rieser4tool from 1.0.1 to 1.0.3

I think I'm going to run off 2.6.9-nitro1 till I get some other issues sorted out. Cups has blown out as well and I am having the rebuild the system of a snapshot I did of my portage tree on 5th Jan.

Since Con Kolvitas does not include R4 in his kernels and I see above that Darckness isnt running an R4 partition either so it's definately uncharted waters here.

I'll have to take a step back from the bleeding edge and get my bleeding system sorted.

Thanks for your comments.

Warning! Found recursive dependency: 4KSTACKS 16KSTACKS 4KSTACKS REISER4_FS REISER4_CHECK REISER4_DEBUG_OUTPUT
Warning! Found recursive dependency: 4KSTACKS 16KSTACKS 4KSTACKS REISER4_FS REISER4_CHECK REISER4_EVENT_LOG

and I cant find the genetic io.... I enabled the genetic library but I cant find the scheduler... do I need IDE Task File enabled.... does anyone use this?

rmh3093: That's just a warning that occurs because of my makefile hacking (had to make it so people couldn't enable 4k stacks AND 16k stacks!). Genetic as is in device drivers->block devices->io schedulers. You need as sched enabled, genetic lib, and experimental. I think that's it...

I get a hardlock on boot with the experimental version if SMP is enabled (I've tried disabling SMT). Anyone else having this problem? I didn't enable the genetic algorithm or preemption.
