Have the same problem. It is related to that version of ndiswrapper though. Bug has already been filed, but I think they arent going to do much about it cause it does work with a vanilla-kernel.
Just emerge \=net-wireless/ndiswrapper-0.10
That version works good too, at least good enough till a new version arrives :)

I have a weird problem since installing nitro3. It seems that everythink works fine but very very often if I press keys in a console or xterm I got the wrong characters. Also if I press Cursor-Up (or Down) I get 2B2B or 2A2A2A and so on!
Its annoying and I want to know if I am the only person who recognizes this problem and if there is a workaround without changing to an other kernel?

Greetings!

Happens to me, too.

First it acts like the Caps Lock is on, except for it isn't. Then, it keeps printing the same character as if the character key is stuck, not to mention that the Page Up/Down aren't working and other keys do strange things... The worst thing is that this issue isn't new at all: this has happened to other people with other nitros before.

I can't get reiserfs4 support to build. The actual code is there, in /usr/src/linux/fs/reiser4 but menuconfig gives me no option to enable it. What am I doing wrong here?

You probabyl need to change the "4k-stacks" option in the kernel hacking section of the config. Reiser4 only works with 8k stacks at the moment.

This error is, because ndiswrapper <0.12-rc1 doesn't work with software suspend 2. Since version 0.12-rc1 it works fine.

BTW. I'm glad to hear that the software suspend and win4lin from software-suspend-2.1.2-and-win4lin3-for-2.6.9-nitro2.patch works. That was difficuilt to do, so I'm verry happy now to hear that. Now I know that my job is helpfull for others. :)
Now I'm working on the patch from-software-suspend-2.1.2-to-software-suspend-2.1.5-for-2.6.9-nitro3 and I try to fix almost all bug in this patch and software-suspend-2.1.2-and-win4lin3-for-2.6.9-nitro2 patch. Tomorrow or max. day after tomorrow I'll relase that patches.

Cheers. 8)

I hope u succeed in it :) I really appreciated that patch.
Hibernate works like a charm (except for the regular fails which are caused by swsusp2 itself) And Win4Lin doesnt cause any problems either.

Thnx for ur hard work, and ofcourse, thnx to seppe too.

No! Supermount is the single most useful patch. I can only wonder why it isn't in vanilla already (or I could go and read the exact reason on LKML).

Hello guys,

dont you have any problems with this new kernel?

Since nitro-2.6.9-r2 i cant type anything on the keyboard because it seems he does power off USB at booting the kernel. As already said, i have this problem just since r2 ... i wasnt able to determine the problem so far...

hmmm
having a minor sound glitch / stutter when the number of channels used goes over a certain limit with snd-intel8x0
(ut24K on multiplayer when a lot of action is going on)
I've experianced this before on other 2.6 kernels sometimes (even with love), it's a bit pot luck as to which kernels it happens with so I don't think it's a nitro issue

I'm not sure if it's this kernel, the fact that I've set elevator to deadline or the new nvidia driver, but the graphics performance now kicks ass :D

Also I used to have Option "AutoRepeat" "500 5"
set in the xorg.conf to compensate for the keyboard repeat being too fast under X for a toshiba laptop, but I've found this is no longer required (as it has the opposite effect of making it too slow)

I was having issues with a USB mouse
a load of these messages were showing up in dmesg
Code:
/usr/src/linux-2.6.9-nitro3/drivers/usb/input/hid-core.c: input irq status -84 received
/usr/src/linux-2.6.9-nitro3/drivers/usb/input/hid-core.c: input irq status -84 received
etc


Code:
usb 1-2: USB disconnect, address 2
usb 1-2: new low speed USB device using address 3
usb 1-2: device not accepting address 3, error -71
usb 1-2: new low speed USB device using address 4
usb 1-2: device not accepting address 4, error -71
usb 1-2: new low speed USB device using address 5
midi: probe of 1-2:1.0 failed with error -5
input: USB HID v1.00 Mouse [Cypress Sem PS2/USB Browser Combo Mouse] on usb-0000:00:1d.0-2


it would seem to work for a while but then eventualy cut out and the light on the mouse would go off
however since I removed that AutoRepeat option in xorg.conf, it seems to be behaving now ...weird

EDIT
found that the USB/Mouse problem is nothing to do with the kernel, but is the dodgy lead on my mouse instead :oops:

I don't think that anyone will have that work for now, even grsecurity and PAX aren't updating for 2.6 and they had explain it on grsecurity forum.



They both seem to work for 2.6. Or do you mean their almost unmaintained state?

PostPosted: Sun Nov 14, 2004 6:08 pm    Post subject: reiser4 lockup Reply with quote

I've tried different kernel patchsets - mm, ck6, klak, redeeman, and nitro basically anything that supports reiser4. Now I am staying with nitro since no matter which patchsets I used, I get hard lockup every 2 to 3 days of use, but at least nitro gives my laptop the performance boost that I could enjoy.

I am starting to think that it might be a configuration issue that's causing the hard lockup. I have a T30 laptop which is a pentium 4 laptop with a 60G 5400 rpm harddrive. Most of my non-critical partitions are in reiser4 except for /home, /boot, and /storage. I could post my kernel .config file but basically I have reiser4 and preempt enabled, and internal timer freq. set to 1000.

Anyway, my question is whether anybody else have experienced similar lockup with reiser4? Or, is this a reiser4/preempt/new scheduler related issue?

Thanks a bunch!

yes, I have the same Problem, it does find my sata drive, so the kernel can boot. Any hints? Staying with the great working 2.6.9-nitro1

Nitro2

#1: Flooding kernel log with messages about unknown scancode 00 being received. Note: the value is 00, and it gets flooded all the time (at pretty random rate), so it is not one of those multimedia keys in my keyboard or anything. And it happens even if the keyboard cable is disconnected.

#2: When using cursor keys in X, they randomly spit out numbers instead (about 30 % of keystrokes, or repeats, are incorrect) - as if I was using the equivalent keys on NUMPAD! Of course this is not the case and I'm using those keys that are between the main part and the numpad. Turning Num Lock off is a "workaround". I'm sure it still misdetects the keys as numpad, but with Num Lock disabled they perform the function I'd expect.

#2b: #2 does not occur in console, but the keyboard sometimes seems to be dropping lots of all keystrokes there. I think this might be related to #2 so that when keystrokes aren't received normally, console misses them completely, but X manages to grab them anyway, but does that somewhat incorrectly and thus the numbers.

#3: Keyboard crash (i.e. keyboard no longer works at all, not in console nor in X, but mouse, copy&paste and programs do), sometimes followed, few hours later, by entire system crash.

#4: Sound skipping a lot, with every sound card I have tried, but that I get with other kernels too. It seems that PC is not designed for 16 HDDs (or perhaps Linux RAID-5 or Reiser4 are badly implemented, causing high latencies).

Nitro3

#5: It gets errors trying to detect some of my IDE HDDs on boot (I am not sure, but I think these are the ITE8212 disks, not the NVIDIA CK8S ones). Update: this happens with the IDE version of the driver. The SCSI/SATA one (wtf would an IDE controller do there, I have no clue) still works fine.

All the old bugs are still here as well :/

---

I do not get those keyboard or crash problems with 2.6.9-cko2, but it doesn't support ITE8212 at all.

2.6.9-nitro3 works pretty well, but it's a bit sluggish. I patched 2.6.9-ck3 with Reiser4 (from 2.6.9-mm1 broken-out) and it's noticable faster. Sad to say goodbye to nitro :| I don't need half of the patches and they just makes kernel more unstable...

Nitro3 on HP OmniBook Xe4500 - haven't found any bugs here yet :)

EDIT:
Software Suspend 2 won't resume. Hangs on "Loading old kernel (no status - this is sensitive!)" or whatever.

The kernel is registering a lot of IRQ#1, even though there really isn't any. This must be causing the messages about unknown scancodes... Another odd thing is that ERR is not zero. What causes this?

Code:

           CPU0
  0:    2184863          XT-PIC  timer
  1:    4791237          XT-PIC  i8042
  2:          0          XT-PIC  cascade
  5:          3          XT-PIC  ohci1394
  7:     498155          XT-PIC  SysKonnect SK-98xx, libata
  8:          2          XT-PIC  rtc
  9:    5110445          XT-PIC  acpi, it8212, eth1
 10:     229165          XT-PIC  libata, ehci_hcd, ohci_hcd, ohci_hcd
 11:     176569          XT-PIC  libata, ICE1712, NVidia CK8S
 12:     421414          XT-PIC  nvidia
 14:         10          XT-PIC  ide0
 15:     247393          XT-PIC  ide1
NMI:          0
LOC:    2184820
ERR:          6


Oh, and one or more of my HDDs just started making "funny" noises, as if they were reseting every few seconds or something. Argh.
