I have heard love4 recommended as the most stable love. Firstly, I want to know if it is also very fast (Running a slow CPU, need speed for X) and where I can get it from (I can't find 2.6.6-love4 anywhere)

You can still get the patch from me: http://www.stijlstek.nl/os/linux/lokean-sources/2.6.6-love4.bz2

Is there an ebuild for that? And also, are the "speedy" kernels faster?

That ebuild doesn't work, as the love sources seem to have dissappeared!

U can also use this one:
http://home.concepts.nl/~wbn0109/gentoo/love-sources-2.6.6-r4.ebuild

That one will automaticall download the sources from the same site:
http://home.concepts.nl/~wbn0109/gentoo/2.6.6-love4.bz2

That works, installed it myself that way... before I jumped to 2.6.7-rc3-love1 ofcourse ;)

Ok, I have a question...

I use Love 4 and I just started using the new one (2.6.7-rc3-love) and it seems to work great...

The question I have is this. All the love sources is, is a patch, so where do you get the rest of the kernel? I have the ck-sources installed already, so does it copy the tree from there and then apply the patch?

The reason I ask, is when I emerge the love-sources, it only downloads about 2 megs worth of patches, then starts copying. The kernel source is over 30 megs i thought.

Thanks!!!

Joe

Love-sources make use of the vanilla-sources from kernel.org, and probably so do ur ck-sources :)

Oohhh.... So, when I install the CK sources, it downloads the software (kernel tree) from kernel.org. So, when I install Love, it uses the CK tree that came from, well, you get the picture...

Ok, cool, so that means whatever optimizations that come in the CK kernel are already there when I emerge the Love sources...

Does it base what software to get from what is linked off the /usr/src/linux link?

If so, then I can use any "Base" kernel I want too?

Sorry for all the questions, just cuirous :)

Stuff it yourself! I'm helping you out and then this??!

No. Both love and ck use the vanilla sources. On top of that each one applies their own patches.

Just calrifying the above anser to your question.

Most patch sets, whether they are mm-sources, ck-sources or love-sources use the basic (known as vanilla) kernel as a base. At the moment, the 2.6.6 kernel is the base they are using.

So, if you then load the latest 'vanilla' kernel, 2.6.7-rc3, (rc3 meaning release candidate #3), the ebuild, if there is one, loads the 2.6.6 kernel, then the 2.6.7-rc3 patch.

If you then emerge, for example, love sources, you will already have 2.6.6 base and the 2.6.7-rc3 in your /usr/portage/distfiles, so it only needs to download the mm-patchset and the love-patchset to work.

So, you will have nothing the same between ck-sources and love-sources, except the base of the 2.6.6 and if they share the 2.6.7-rc3 patch.

Any other similarities are coincidence as love-sources are based on the mm-patchset (Which is 2.6.6 base, + 2.6.7-rc3 patch, + 2.6.7-rc3-mm1 patch).

Make sense?

Sorry, that stuff it wan't intended to offend! Your ebuild didn't work, and I'm in the middle of exams, so I'm a bit too lazy to sort it all AND do revision

Well, don't do revision then! It's quite simple really. :P

Actually, I guess I've been pretty lucky with A levels so far, given my general lack of any revision.

Well, I don't find anywhere the patch-list for 2.6.6-love4 .
There's the list for lokean1:

http://www.stijlstek.nl/os/linux/lokean-sources/2.6.6-lokean1.patches.list

but there isn't 2.6.6-love4.notes.
where can I get it from? Thank you.
