Don't get your hopes up though. This will be even more experimental than the normal nitro-sources.


I think that is a good idea, but perhaps you could call it something else as it isn't a nitro sources? Possibly start a new thread, explain what has happned and call it Darckness-sources, or something. And if Seppe agrees to it later on, possibly change the thread title?

Just IMHO, but I would be uncomfortable posting a patchset and calling it someone elses... :?

Dunno, just a thought?

Sorry for not responding, but I have a lot of work lately. My school is killing me with a lot of tasks and I have exams in 3 weeks. So I can't really test your patch set, but if everything works for you .. then release it! :)
And don't forget to post a patchlist as well. Thanks for your work :)

If you really want some patch is that isn't in anymore (like orinocco, acx, iteraid, ...), please let me know.


I would like to use iteraid. It would save me time to just have it in the source. I have been manually patching to get support for my simple raid1 array on /home for months now.

I have a quick question about USB flashdisks with Nitro4.

When I first compiled a Nitro4 kernel, I couldn't get my usb flashdisk to work, so I recompiled a kernel with all of the usb debugging support turned on.

Inserting the memory stick into the usb port then produced copious output to the syslog file, the last line of which was

Code:

/dev/ub/a: p1


After a quick look in /dev/ub/a I tried mounting /dev/ub/a/part1 and it worked, much to my satisfaction.

However, in all of my previous kernels I have mounted my flashdisk by mounting /dev/sda1 (or sometimes /dev/sda2)

Since everything now works, I am not too worried, but I would really love to know what is going on. I would also like to check that I am doing the right thing by mounting /dev/ub/a/part1.

Thanks.

Check your config. I remember hearing about a new usb storage driver without scsi emulation, but I think the old one is still there, however it might disable it if you use the new one.

This has been mentioned already, but I had problems with this kernel (2.6.9-nitro4) locking up. It usually would lock up shortly after boot. One boot out of 5 it stayed up for about 45 minutes, until I started doing some hdparm tests.

This is using Reiser4, Pentium 4 Hyper Threading, SMP, ACPI, preemption, all that good stuff enabled. I really just want a -mm kernel, but that won't work with the Nvidia drivers. I'm going to try 2.6.9-cko3 and 2.6.10-rc3-no2 next...

Hopefully a Reiser4 patch for 2.6.10 comes out soon.

Update (20041225): Yep, as some other people have reported, the cko3 kernel is stable with all the stuff I mentioned above.
