addons: vesa-rrc patch : devfs removal : win4lin patch - thanks to PickledOnion

some informative links regarding some of the patches:

the return of write barriers

to enable the write barrier code for your partition/filesystem, add
"barrier=flush" for reiserfs, or "barrier=1" for ext3, to the options
for your partition. only reiserfs and ext3 work with it i think (feel free
to correct me if i am mistaken).

the suspend to ram fixes

further thanks to: borndbad, blutkind, socke, redeeman, Irrumator,
ejohnson and the rest of the love-sources community 8)

COOOL!
It would be nice if you could add the CDFS patch because many people use it, not just a few.

Well, for the last 5 weeks, I've been practicing the guitar, and I didn't have time for kernel downloads and recompilation etc etc..... because I'm on dialup. :D
Sorry for that. :knocking head to a wall:

decided to go to your place and listen to you playing guitar :wink:

2 simple questions:
* could u add Win4Lin as standard in the patches..? If not its ok too but I would be very happy with it
* And of course (i keep asking this :P) can u add swsusp2 as a standard patch to it? I keep getting massive errors while patching... and I am not such a kernel-whizzz that I can fix them all :(
* What is that vesa-rrc patch for?

:)

Win4Lin is broken sometimes, and sometimes not...
And theres a good patch to put it in.

Vesafb-rrc is the predecessor to vesafb-tng. Its a hack by spock (rhymes :)) to give you a higher refresh rate in the console. For some people vesafb-rrc works better (or at all) then vesafb-tng, so they use that.

Overall, vesafb-tng is a much better option.

I can't answer for neenee, but the win4lin patch is very easy to apply:
Code:
cd /path/to/love-sources
patch -p1 < /path/to/win4lin.patch
make xconfig
ensure netraverse support is compiled in
make it, copy to boot, etc.
reboot.


That's it.

Win4lin hasn't been broken for some time since I worked out the seg-fault problem so you don;t have to be concerned about it working or not anymore :D

I know that stuff :) but the last times I tried it I got all kinds of unpatchable hunks which I had to fix... thats kind of the reason I wanted it added as standard ;)

that's because you used one of my patches that wasn't made for that love - this particular patch is specifically for this love, so no failed hunks or anything - I'll try and make sure I do one for each love, but I was busy for the last couple of releases :D

but this time i have a compile error.
[ the first time, since i usr the love sources :-) ]

CHK include/linux/compile.h
GEN .version
CHK include/linux/compile.h
UPD include/linux/compile.h
CC init/version.o
LD init/built-in.o
LD .tmp_vmlinux1

make: *** [.tmp_vmlinux1] Fehler 1


does anybody have such a problem ?

(compiles clean with every other releases of love)
(only thing i did, was a make oldconfig)
(patches apply clean)

and there is something curious:
Kernel internal timer frequency
in -> Processor type and features

and Kernel internal timer frequency
in -> Main Menu

Is the plan to keep the new "love-lite" format then, or are going to creep back to the old "can we include the KitchenSink3.1 patch pls?" way of doing things.

Personally, I like love-lite. The releases come out fast, (which is important in a patchset as unstable as love), and people can releases (and are releasing) patches against the love tree for stuff they need.

Of course, there's nothing except R4 that I desperately need ATM, so I suppose I would see it like that.

Anyway, either way would be fine, but if you do decide to stick with the lightweight approach, it might be wise to get that FAQ up and running.

All this and I've not even installed version - too busy enjoying the old one :)

I think it is going to stay as the love-lite version, but it will cause problems as people add 'official' love patches to it, such as win4lin and then rrc for example.

The problems will occur as each patch changes the code and so the likelyhood of the next addon failing is increased.

However, I think neenee is planning to do a love-lite base with a single official love-addon patch with all the addons included - not sure how that will work if someone wants tng and win4lin - but we'll see. It always works out in the end :D

btw: neenee, thanks for the release - it's working fine here.

Hey i have your fix.
from neenee, to you. Pretty simple
cd /usr/src/linux
make menuconfig
General setup ---> Configure standard kernel features (for small systems) ---> Supported processor vendors ---> [*] Support Intel processors & [*] Support AMD processors (Or whichever cpu you use)But intel is a required supported processor. for your compile error to go away.

Can I officially request the delete-devfs patch in the next love? It (devfs, not the patch) really must die. ;)

devfs... Now that's something I do use, at least until I can figure out how to make udev work with ipw2100...

This release works better for me than the previous...now setting timeslice to 16 brings no mouse-lag problems at all, system responsiveness seems good as in all love series

there are no stupid questions, only stupid answers.

i linked to an article describing barriers in the first post of this thread.

but to summarize it a bit:

barriers allow filesystems to properly control the writing of data to disks,
increasing stability and preventing various problems (as i understand it).

It supports atomic transactions for ext3 and reiser3. Which means that if your system crashes, the file system crashes in a stable state. No half written blocks anywhere, or files written but the inode table not updated, or whatever else Murphy's Law may run to. If the system stops, the worst that happens is that your last write may be lost. Which given that you just crashed, is not too bad a deal. And there's none of this tedious rebuilding the filesystem at boot time.

R4 does something like this aleady, but without kernel support, it's a lot harder. This may explain why R4 is getting a rep for high CPU usage.

When this settles down a bit it's going to be way cool.

my dmesg is giving me this:
Code:
MCE: The hardware reports a non fatal, correctable incident occurred on CPU 0.
Bank 1: d400400000000152


i assume it might be related to me having to put support for intel processors when i have an amd, it doesnt seem to be causing any problems tho

Jesus, the give-each-release-a-cutesy-name joke was tired and embarassing after the first week. Get over it, already.
