May I be the first to say woohoo!

Let you know later how this one goes...

[edit]
No problems at all - very fast and responsive, especially under load - compiling, surfing the net, movie playing, vmware running, etc.

It's fixed. Delete /usr/portage/distfiles/2.6.4_rc2-love1.tar.bz2, redigest and try again.

that's great! :D

I need to say that a few days ago I was very bad (sorry, my english sucks, i know) because my computer was lacking 3d-accel, sound and vmware compatibility.

I don't know what more to do (spend hundreds of times with differents options and kernels) and suddenly I remembered the existence of love-sources. I installed it. Sound is working correctly, ati-drivers behaves as expectly and vmware is running win-xp happily.

So steel, i'm happy.

Thanks! ;)

Ewww supermount eww ewww eww.....Please steel, please don't do it again. Its too much temptation for me to use that instead of playig with udev and dbus to mount my stuff.

And also, whats the point of evil sources if you include supermount?

@steel300

steel, don't you run vmware? and if so did you see any problem recompiling?

I got:

yes, vmware fails to compile.

What can we do in order to know what patch is doing that?

by the way, I'm sticking with rc1-love3 that runs very well.

uhmmmm..... any of you have experience using one of those "convert filesystems" utilities?

I want to test reiser4 but I have reiser3 and I don't want to reinstall gentoo.

(yes, I know it's unstable and bla bla bla)

I heard that cryptloop has undergone big changes so it's possible that you enabled an option that is no longer compatible with it. Anyways, look up the changes to cryptloop and you'll probably find what's wrong. (I doubt the disk is really corrupted. Go back and use your previous kernels and it should still work.)

Hi, I hope someone can help me :(
Since quite a few love sources releases (around 2.6.1 I think), loading the ati-driver module (fglrx) causes a segmentation fault. I tried reversing Nick's patch and removing preempt, and changing cfg to deadline, to no avail. I can't use love-sources without 3d acceleration, but I don't know what the problem is. The module loads fine when compiled against a vanilla kernel... any help??

Strange i compiled the previous love source version from this one into my dekstop pc which has a Radeon 9700pro and had no problems emerging the ati-drivers...
Check if there are problems with your agp...

I have intel-agp compiled in the kernel, before it was a module and had no problems compiling/inserting... If I copy an fglrx module compiled against vanilla, I can't load it as It spit out an error (invalid module format). ck-sources works just fine...

Ati-drivers work here perfectly with rc1-love3 (cannot test rc2-love1 because of the vmware-problems).

Please make agpgart and intel-agp as modules and "modprobe intel-agp" at boot, so agpgart and intel-agp gets loaded automatically.

Then start X.
