Thanks a bunch bssteph! Recompiling as I type!

I should of course have checked if mm2 is the problem before
complaining :?

UPDATE:

Unapplying the drm-agp-module patch solved the problem :D
Thanks again

It's okay.

Oh, I tried out the anticipatory patch and the disk is acting fine. Can't say any more than that because I never used as to begin with, but if you're concerned, it does work.

Still goofing around with bootsplash to no real avail, but I'm "busy" with a "meeting" right now so I'm not really trying much. If I get frustrated I'll post.

Reports indicate that unapplying that patch fixes any Nvidia problems too.

Hmm, again love sources don't want to power down. Am I the only one experiencing this?

Power down has been fine for me with ACPI and power management enabled here on the laptop and just ACPI at home.

A little help for the ignorant...mind giving me a clue as to how to unpatch?

Seems I was getting some Nvidia errors as well. AGP was disables, massive kernel panic once bootsplash got (sorta) working, etc :p

I've been running 2.6.x-love on my lappy for a while now, but have been dragging my feet as far as the desktop goes. So I decided to jump in with both feet and give bootsplash a go while I was making the change. There was, no doubt, some luck involved :) but I followed the How-To in the Tips and Tricks forum very carefully and it worked on my first try.

That's probably not much help for those of you who are stuck, though it should indicate that the patch is good.

Get the drm-agp-module.patch from the link that bssteph posted in this thread, then
cd into /usr/src/2.6.0-test9-love2 and then

patch -p1 -R < /path/to/drm-agp-module.patch

recompile - voila

The non-fatal kernel error/trace you get at the tail end of booting, after the bootsplash init script, is happening to everyone, I think.

But for the unpatch:
Code:
cd /usr/src/linux-2.6.0-test9-love2
cp /la/la/la/the/path/to/that/mm-patch .
patch -p1 -R < mm-patch

and then make again.

I still haven't gotten the kernel to like my initrd... anyone mind telling me the specifics, if they differ from this?
Code:
mount /boot
cp /usr/share/bootsplash/initrd-1024x768 /boot

with a grub as so:
Code:

title Gentoo Linux 2.6.0-test9-love2
root (hd0,0)
kernel (hd0,0)/boot/bzImage-2.6.0-test9-love2 root=/dev/hda3 video=vesa:ywrap,mtrr vga=0x317 elevator=cfq splash=verbose
initrd /boot/initrd-1024x768


notes: vga=0x791 doesn't boot as the kernel thinks that isn't a valid mode for me.
bootsplash works (ie /sbin/splash can change the image after the kernel is loaded), I just don't have anything during the actual boot. The kernel complains with "bootsplash 3.1.1-2003/11/02: looking for picture... no good signature found."
And i've also tried to use splash to make my own initrd with the same results.

Hello Again,
Reporting is with success on love2
No silent though :(
Try:
Code:

/sbin/splash -s -f /etc/bootsplash/default/config/bootsplash-1024x768.cfg > /boot/initrd-1024x768


I also use this:
Code:

cd /etc/bootsplash
mkdir themes
rm default
ln -s ./themes/<Your THEME> default
ln -s ./themes/<Your THEME> <Your THEME>

Then rerun that splash line.
Thanks again,
Jesse

Sry forgot,

If u have modules in there use:

Code:

/sbin/splash -s -f /etc/bootsplash/default/config/bootsplash-1024x768.cfg >> /boot/initrd-1024x768


now just plunk your themes in /etc/bootsplash/themes/

HTH,
Jesse

One more thing...
Change your /etc/conf.d/bootsplash to reflect your new theme.
Please excuse the triple post :(

I anyone has tips for silent mode and progress bar,
Please share :)

Ive got a partial progress bar working but I'd like a real solution :)

Thanks again Loyal Lovers,

Jesse

Hello,
Please accept me humble apologies.

I had the label wrong in grub.

It was the linus tree.

I've been only able to get splash working at the end of boot on love2 ie. bad initrd. :(

Once again,
Sorry.
Jesse

can happen :)

Kernel working fine, great work.

For bootsplash:
I also get " ... no good signature found" error.
Those who have this working:
How do you create your initrd file, and how do you attach the jpgs to it. Perhaps somewhere there is my error.

BSteph, Lovechild, et al:

I love love-sources, but I can't use them due to the fact that I have a SiliconImage 3112A SATA controller...any 2.5 or 2.6 kernel causes that controller to hog 100% CPU whenever doing disk activity =\ Find a way to fix that driver, and I will love you all forever as much as I love your patchset ^_^ Hehehe....

okey dokey. Well, I'm stumped for now (and my lab partners are getting cranky) so I'm giving up for a bit, and I'm going to start doing real work.

Thanks for trying though.

Hrm...most of what I see in that is for either a) the open-source RAID driver (I have only a single drive, and thus am not running RAID), or the driver that only works with RedHat and SuSE boxed-set kernels =\ Was there something I was missing on that? I appreciate the pointers, nonetheless =) Or does that "Medley" driver replace the kernel drivers for the SATA controller altogether? And in that case...is it better than what's part of the 2.6 kernel series already?

(edit: The 2.4.22-ac series of kernels seems to avoid the 100% cpu usage, and give me slightly more reasonable hdparm numbers (but still rather pathetic...~22MB/sec in buffered disk reads from an ATA150 device??), but seem to have serious interactivity issues when the disk is under heavy load...worse than 2.6.0-test9-love2 performs when the disk is causing 100% load...so I'm probably going back to love-sources(Eek...because I was copying a large video file when I typed this...it skipped a couple letters and 'love-sources' came out 'love-sores'!!), for now, and taking the hit in drive performance (down to ~13MB/sec there) in return for better interactivity...but a better working driver would be neat! =P)

Maybe there would be some sense in starting to push Love-sources patches to Gentoo-dev-sources?

Yep, me too. The thing is in mm2 I could powerdown no problem with ACPI. It works OK with APM though. But the love2 patch list doesn't mention touching ACPI so I'm a bit confused. :cry:

Perhaps we should patch the mm2 gradually to love2 to find out which one breaks power down on some boards. Nick's CPU schduler does not, as I put it into my mm2 and power down still works. I probably isn't bootsplash, as love1 had the same problem for me, so I guess it is kexes or execshield (or what patches are left?) Can someone post me links to all used patches for love2 so I could try to find out, which craps up...
