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

thanks to: the #love-sources community - thanks guys :) this was really a group-thing this time!

EDIT: change the ebuild to read
LOVEPV_SRC="http://cos.evilforums.com/love/2.6.8-rc2-love3/${KV}.bz2"
instead of
LOVEPV_SRC="http://cos.evilforums.com/bin/${KV}.bz2"
and you should be set

Nice! But what's up with those nforce2 patches? I thought everything worked OK with that chipset (at least it does for me??)? :)

neenee, so the patch damouse made for swsups didn't work? i'm not surprised if it didn't. so close! doh.


for those that needs swsups2, use this kernel http://www.darav.de/kernel_stuff.html
it seems like that is the kernel for laptops, love sources is great and all but without suspend, it's pretty hard to keep linux and laptops mobile :)

maybe i'll be able to patch love3 with swsusps patches.

thanks for the xyz-kernel to whomever posted the link when we were talking about swsusp2 (sorry i forgot your nick)

:)

This feels like a good one to me. The latency under load seems better and I'm not getting the audio glitches with heavy system use that I'd been seeing recently.

Nice work! :)

win4lin patch specifically for this release available at the usual place (although as stahlsau mentioned, the older one works as well).

HTH :D

fbsplash simply doesn't work for me. It's also an awful lot of work for something that was so simple in the past. Oh well.

well, you only have to do it once - since themes from bootsplash can be used,
and you can skip to step 4 if you use love-sources, making the guide far shorter.

bootsplash was broken in the past loves, so if you wanted to properly use it,
you'd have to run 2.6.7-love8 anyway - feel free to use that for bootsplash.

i'm sorry to hear things did not work out for you.
