YAY! I'm the first to release a 2.6.11 patchset :}, standard stuff follows.

Release info link: http://sourceforge.net/project/shownotes.php?group_id=129597&release_id=309610
bzip2 diff link: http://prdownloads.sourceforge.net/darkpatches/patch-2.6.11-dark1.diff.bz2?download
2.6.11 bzip2 diff link: http://prdownloads.sourceforge.net/darkpatches/patch-2.6.11.diff.bz2?download

Edit: PARTY TIME!!!!!!!
Edit: Uploaded the REAL dark1
Edit: Fixed even more mistakes....... next time I won't rush stuff
Edit: I had some compliants about openbsd-netrand.diff from a fellow kernel hacker on IRC, the complaints were that the kernel already has good enough randomization, I'd like to say that although the kernel default ISN randomization is quite good, this patch adds an extra level of security. It prevents TCP/IP OS fingerprinting, which renders nmap's -O option useless when scanning a host with the patch applied.
Edit: Hah, I just learned I didn't have the first dark-sources patchset :)

Because I rushed dark1 out I didn't get to put in mapped watermark 3 (which is a great step forward) or the semi-new schediso (con went back to schediso2, which means i'm moving back). Expect dark2 is the normal 2-day time frame, so that I can stress test and such (unixbenching it right now).

While I was waiting for 2.6.11-nitro0 to be ready I decided to try something new. So I patched the 2.6.11 kernel with dark1, compiled it but all I got was some errors and a kernel panic.

Here are some of them:
Code:

UDF-fs: No partitions found (1)
no UART detected on 0x1
MTVAP port 0x378 is busy
Kernel panic - not syncing: VFS: Unable to mount root fs on unknown-block (3,5)


The patch looks full of goodies and I would use it if it worked on Reiser4.

Note that i DIDN'T include Reiser4 and i have no plans too, this is due to my policy of maintaining stablity and reiser4 isn't what I'd consider stable yet. I may create a branch off called darkrr with reiser4 for reiser4 people, but as of now I do not have any reiser4 patches or branches.

So what are these dark-sources? I'm currently trying out different kernels, could you please describe this one for me?

Sure thing, dark-sources is targetted towards being stable, secure and scalable without introducing "fluff" into the kernel. It adds patches I find practical use in vs stuff like vesa-tng which adds fluff to the kernel. I run and test every release to its fullest, trying to ensure as much things work as possible.

I'd like to make an announcement to all the reiser4 people hoping to use dark-sources, I have decided to create a darkfs branch, which will include the normal dark-sources stuff aswell as extra file-systems (from this point on SquashFS will be in the darkfs branch). I realise that I am taking a user hit by not having reiser4 support, but my preference is reiser3.6/ext3, so keep in mind, the darkfs branch will only be compile tested (I will not give the normal insurance that comes with dark-sources).

hey predatorfreak, I'm playing with your patchest with SMP.
How do you feel about the latest libata-dev bk patch in your patchset? I'm one of the unfortunate people who have a promise tx2/tx4 SATA/PATA controller but using a PATA interface hard drive. I was hoping (after reading the changelog) for 2.6.11 that I wouldn't have to patch the kernel to get my hard drive to show up, but I still do.

If you're interested in using the patch, and don't feel like pulling it from bk, I have it on my site: http://skof.org/linux/libata-dev-2.6_03-03-2005.patch

Guys with my setup can't even boot without it. In case you are wondering this is an issue with brand new hardware; it's not legacy or anything :)

Np, I'll add it in 2.6.11-dark2 and get that released in a few hours.

Edit: also, thanks for the link, that should save me alot of time.
Edit: Fixed stupid typo's :\
Edit: ledskof, THANK YOU FOR PROVIDING THAT PATCH. It finally solved the "hdparm hates SATA" problem's I've been having ever since my move to 2.6. I can actually use hdparm on my SATA disk now without it spitting errors!!

great! glad to be of help.

Are you having any ata related problems? I'm trying to figure out why operations on my DVD drive are failing now.
unpatching libata-dev isn't really an option for me since I can't boot without it... So I'm going to try dropping smp first.

just doing a
Code:
dd if=/dev/hda of=/tmp/whatever
fails at erratic spots and I can't kill the process.

/dev/hda is my DVDRW-CDRW

EDIT:
Everything is cool when I turned off SMP.

EDIT:
Problem gone in 2.6.11-dark2

Hmm, I'll look into this and see if I can hunt this down, please give dark2 a try and see if it still happens :\. Also, whats are/is processor(s)

Edit: Try reversing bk-driver-core.patch and bk-scsi.patch (You can get both from the 2.6.11-rc5-mm1 release broken-out dir)

Oh just a single Pentium4 HT. I should have just said SMT.
I know it's flakey.

I'll ask con if he knows of any conflicts between staircase and SMT enviroments. In the mean time try my above recommendation of reversing bk-driver-core.patch and bk-scsi.patch.

Edit: If that doesn't work http://kernel.org/pub/linux/kernel/people/akpm/patches/2.6/2.6.11-rc5/2.6.11-rc5-mm1/broken-out/bk-ide-dev.patch might fix the problem aswell. If it does, please tell me :)

hey freak, nice patchset you have here. I miss a few small things (ehm... fbsplash? can't find it in the patchlist on your site...) and I'd like to know if the full -ck patchset is in there?

maybe you can write out your sources easilly eg {con kolivas' patchset -ck3 (without blabla)} or something like that.

I'd like to know, as I follow -ck mailinglist and like to be able to test the latest with this patch - eg I patch -R your version and just add con's or jens' latest (fixes). So I don't have to add all these other minor things myself :D

it also makes it easier to compare to other patchsets (as I'm always looking for a nice one - maybe until I stumbled acros your's :D)
