hi,
i'm sorry to ask but what to do with that "2.6.5-love3"-file?
tried
Code:
ebuild 2.6.5-love3 digest
no go. Put's s/t out like that:
Code:
root@eisenschwein love-sources # ebuild 2.6.5-love3 digest
!!! Name error in 2.6.: missing a version or name part.
!!! Error: PF is null '2.6.'; exiting.


btw, i followed the directions given in https://forums.gentoo.org/viewtopic.php?t=121966

I believe it's a silly problem, but i dunno....

you are trying to digest the patch itself.

instead, get and digest 'love-sources-2.6.5-r3.ebuild'

I've also got a problem with X: X starts but when I quit it I get a black screen with a non-blinking cursor in the upper left corner and I can't do anything more except a hard reboot (I've got a GeForce2 MX)

Also lirc_i2c still isn't working. I patched it myself so it compiles, but the devices aren't created when loading the module. Could this be because I'm running udev?

Just got compile errors with -love3 on AMD64, but thery're easy to fix:
Code:
arch/x86_64/pci/../../i386/pci/irq.c, line 1019: Change SYSCALL_VECTOR to IA32_SYSCALL_VECTOR

If CONFIG_AMD76X_PM is set, linkage fails with:
Code:
  LD      .tmp_vmlinux1

Hi,

I'm a NFORCE user. The fix for nforce motherboards seems to be included in -mm and thus, included in -love, but since a few weeks, I cannot use -love because my computer gets frezed.

Each time I boot to try a new -love, it runs well but then it locks and I LOST DATA from my home directory (not sure if only home).

I'm actually using 2.6.4-rc1-love3 without problems, but I want to upgrade.

What can I do? Some nforce guru around here? Prakash?

Thanks!

I've seen this post:

https://forums.gentoo.org/viewtopic.php?t=158370&highlight=love

but I'm afraid to test because each time I boot with a newer kernel I lost data and config files.

Any tip or confirmation of this?

and by the way, why is love3 so small compared to love1 and 2?

I'm trying to apply love3 over love2 but it rejects, so it's not the way.

No luck, so I suppose the patch is bad generated or even for -mm3 but I'm keeping from trying untils steel say something about it.

cheers.

It patches against 2.6.5-mm2, not the old love.

I have this:

│ │ [*] Local APIC support on uniprocessors
│ │ [*] IO-APIC support on uniprocessors

but in the before-mentioned post it sais I must disable this.

I'm going to try... but i'm afraid :(

Pasadena Jr. High? I don't get it. Where do you come up with these bizarre names? Pasadena is about a half hour drive from me, but I can't see any reason why you'd name a kernel release after a Jr. High there. 8O

@ktech

Try a few hdparm -t /dev/hdX (where X ist your appropriate hd device).

If it doesn't lock-up, your problem is not the infamous APIC issue. Reprot back and we'll see. In the meantime I'll give this baby a try.

@Prakash and others nforce2 users:

I've been with 2.6.5-love3 for a few hours without lookups. The only change I've made is disabling this in the kernel:

[ ] Local APIC support on uniprocessors
[ ] IO-APIC support on uniprocessors


and disabling APIC 1.4 in the BIOS.

I think CPU Disconnect is enabled. I don't know if this is good or not, but this way it runs flawlessly (by the moment).

Any coment?

I really don't know where the names come from. It's just whatever I feel it should be named. The names are wacky and very off the wall, but that's just the way it is. Pasadena Junior High is the name because it has no relevance to anything.

10 Points to whoever can guess the subtle reference in 2.6.5-love3's name. bssteph, OneOfOne, and anyone else who hangs out on #love-sources is not allowed to guess. They already know the answer. *HINT* It has to do with the Onassis part of the name.

@ktech

Yes, with APIC deactivated, your nforce2 should run without a problem. Unless you have a very loaded (with PCI cards) system, using APIC doesn't really benefit you, so leave it like this, as I do the same.

Or if you really want to use APIC, apply following patch from Ross Dickson, updated by Richard James and pass idle=C1halt as kernel parameter. Keep in mind that using this patch with APIC will make your idle temps a bit higher.

I only have a ati-radeon vga card and a TV tuner pci card.

By the moment I'll stay with no apic.

I'm so :( ...

It doesn't work for me, halts while waiting for the IP address from the DHCP server, and I have to reboot (with ctrl-alt-del, so it's not a hardlock)... I've tried the same config as with 2.6.4-love1, but with no luck.

Some details (might be useful):
1. I use USB connection to my cable modem, with the usbnet module (when I tried compiling it in, it oopsed and didn't work), using an ethernet card is not an option.
2. I've tried with and without APIC
3. The /var/log/messages file doesn't show anything useful

Please help me!

LOL, wow, they really make us work for love-sources now. I was wondering what happened to the thread in off-the-wall, so I gave up and did a search. Let's keep the thread here!

Oh, and great job! Compiling...

[edit]
Do I need to set my stacks to 4kb or can I leave it at 8kb with an nvidia card? I remember something about it...
