Steel has said in the previous love sources thread that GRSec is something he wants to add, but can't because the mm patchset causes problems with it. Steel loves grsecurity, though, and is working on it for now.

I download 2.6.4-rc2 from kernel.org and try to patch it, but I get messages of previous patch has been applied. What am I doing wrong?

err, nevermind, didn't know it was against the 2.6.3

No problem. Thanks for making a great kernel. My New Orleans offer is still open, whenever you want to take it up.

The fixes for the 2.6 swapping performance sound very promissing. The last couple of kernels were very bad in this regard.

Hey Steel, I remember you said that EVMS was picked up by mm, but I don't see all the different options under MD that those patches provided. Do you know if they're in there?

swapping is still a looking-forward-to-be-fixed issue here. 2.6.* is swapping to (kind a) death! eclipse (java + much memory) plus mozilla + kde are producing swapstorms with 256 MB. are there some swap related fixes in 2.6.4? does bootsplash work?

Have a look at the notes.txt
mm-sources plus extra patches.

advantage over 2.6 gentoo sources: This ones might blow up your system ;)
differences: different patches

Tony has made an updated 2.6.4 patch for AMD76x Power Management for SMP systems and needs testing.
If you have such a board, check it out, it's good for your power bill.
Patch is here.

A search of the forum, even reading this thread would have ansered your question.

The love-sources patch adds thinks into the kernel, that are not in main-line development because the propper devs havn't got round to testing them. These include but are not limited to, Reiser4 support, some funky swap stuff, and various hardware drivers. Read the changelog posted in the first post on any love sources thread, if you don't undertand what the changes mean, google for them. and a description of how to use love is here

It's a bit like a nicotine patch but for people addicted to sex.

You put a love patch on your root and then you stay up all night rebuilding your system and forget your partner.

Simple but effective.

I once read about one for people addicted to computing but with a neglected sex life but I cant remember what it was called.

HTH

LOL...very good description, but I think that was a byproduct rather than the main intention of Dr's Lovechild and Steel. You reccon we could sue them for loss of partner?

I am having some problems getting love sources to compile:

I have setup all the config options using menuconfig , but when I do 'make' it compiles OK but then gives the following msg:

Code:
bash-2.05b# make
make[1]: `arch/i386/kernel/asm-offsets.s' is up to date.
  CHK     include/linux/compile.h
Kernel: arch/i386/boot/bzImage is ready
  Building modules, stage 2.
  MODPOST
/bin/sh: line 1: scripts/modpost: cannot execute binary file
make[1]: *** [__modpost] Error 126
make: *** [modules] Error 2
bash-2.05b#




What is this error indicating?

Thanks for any help.

Sorry dumb Qu.

make
make modules
make modules_install

There just seems to be a lack clear instructions for any of the 2.6 change over. I have been trawling forums , newsgroups , google, www and all I seem to get are snippets of "this works for me" kind of stuff and then some simply inaccurate crap.

Am I missing some important resources?

Anyway I have got a bootable 2.6.4 but a chunk of stuff does not work any more.

adsl-start fails to connect.
no sound
still no lm-sensors
DMA not coming up on my 80G Baracuda

plus it locks up every 10 minutes.

Looks promising but I'm not out of the woods yet.

Where can I look to fix the pppoe connection? It was more by luck than by design that I got it running under 2.4.22 so I'm a bit stumped.

Thanks for any words of wisdom.
Gentree.

:lol:
hehe, promising to give you some more hours of enjoyment =)
your problems seem to be related to missing modules in your kernel config.
don't forget to update the /etc/modules.autoload.d/kernel-2.6 and add the modules you had in your kernel-2.4 file. run menuconfig and recheck the settings for alsa, network protocolls and devices, ide controller and udma setting . seems that your problems are covered in other threads descibing moving from 2.4 to 2.6
good luck =)

Thanks for the reply d-fens,

I think I have pulled all the help I can out of that thread already.

Yeah, I;ve been through all that a dozen times before posting and I cant find anything that seems to be missing.

You mention UDMA but I dont see anything that related to that , do you?

My disk comes up fine under 2.4 now I have an 80 conductor cable:
hda UDMA(33)
hdc UDMA(100)

but 2.6 is udma not active.

Can you see what I have missed?

Thx, Gentree
