rmh3093: copy the linux-2.6.11-rc1-nitro0{e} directory so that there are two of them; one you'll be modifying, the other will be the base which has no changes (like you just emerged it). Change the one that you're going to modify, then run
Code:
diff -urN (old dir) (new dir) > patchfilename


Make sure (BEFORE YOU RUN DIFF) that you do 'make mrproper' in both trees and clean out any .rej/.orig files that may have cropped up. If you want (and it doesn't break anything) I'll include your patch in future nitros ;)


rmh3093:

Just to add a bit more that may help you:

If you put this in your .bashrc, all you need to run is 'mrproper' or whatever you want to call it and it will do a 'make mrproper' and automatically get rid of the *.rej and *.orig and the *.~ files for you - very useful when you play with kernel patching a fair bit.
Code:
alias mrproper="make mrproper; find -name '*.orig' -exec rm -v '{}' ';' ; find -name '*.rej' -exec rm -v '{}' ';' ; find -name '*~' -exec rm -v '{}' ';'"


As said, you can call it what you want, I find mrproper easy to remember.

HTH :D

up and running. i had to disable pcmcia and Intel 830M/845G/852GM/855GM/865G (EXPERIMENTAL) for framebuffer support but i don't mind at all (i actually never use it - who reboots a laptop if suspend to ram works and no new nitro sources are out? :wink:). will get back if some problems araise

[EDIT] even swsusp2 finally works! [/EDIT]
[EDIT]holy cow i MUST fasten my seatbelts! this one IS faaaast[/EDIT]

This kernel mostly works, except the nvsound module won't load. I guess I'll have to wait for Nvidia to provide their new version.

So will nitro1 have fbsplash support? :wink: Please say yes!

Also, could someone briefly explain schedulers to me? Does nitro use a special scheduler by default? Do I have to choose my scheduler in my grub config? What are the pros and cons of not using the default linux scheduler?

EDIT: Oh yeah, and what's zaphod?

I was going to ask exactly that, so I'll just say ditto :)

I don't quite get what's going on with bootsplash, isnt the point of fbsplash that bootsplash was too messy and would never get into the main kernel?

spock wrote:
Bootsplash worked fine for me. Why create a new project?

Bootsplash has been designed in a way that prevented it from being integrated into the mainstream kernel, made it difficult to add new features to it and made it very difficult to maintain. Frankly speaking, I've grown tired of having to fix the patch every time a new kernel comes out, usually spending a few hours trying to figure out what is breaking it this time. Bootsplash has its JPEG decompressor integrated into the kernel. It's not perfect (it doesn't work with some JPEG files). Fbsplash doesn't have these problems because all image decompression is done in user space and the kernel patch has been made as small as possible.


Someone please explain?

Darckness: could you put up the bootsplash patch that you used so we can reverse it and add fbsplash?

I didn't put bootsplash in. It's in rc1. I'll add fbsplash back in when I can (when it doesn't break everything).

As Tiger683 said, Zaphod is a cpu scheduler that is also known as the O(1) and Single Priority Array scheduler. Schedulers manage system resources and IO throughput. nitro-sources use the staircase cpu scheduler because of the ck base. For more info on that, check out the Con Kolivas web site.

What rc1 are you referring to? Its not in vanilla rc1 or ck.

I thought it was in rc1 now, but apparently it's included in the swsusp2+win4lin patch for some reason. Very peculiar...

Patch

Hmm... ok. Could you post the swsusp2+win4lin patch?
I dont use swsusp2 or win4lin, and i'd like to try the genetic scheduler :), but i use fbsplash.

Thanks

Hey, darcknessn i've created a patch for REALLY variable kernel-stacks, it doesn't break anything (except you really choose some strange stacks... :twisted: but thats a runtime problem and user fault... :P ). It might be something ONLY nitro has.... interested? but you would have to wait a little, I'm quite busy at the mom..... till later..


PS. I found staircase is pretty incompatible with much other cool sched stuff on the net,
so I went for zaphod + gen-zaphod, and it rocks + lets you hack some other sched stuff into this piggy ;D

EDIT: sorry for the wide-post before, just edited it....

Could you edit your Z's so we don't have to scroll the page to the right just to read someone elses post? :?

Thanks

PickledOnion: Yeah, he seems to be crafty like that ;).

Tiger683: Absolutely! I'll test it in the next nitro. Oh, and let's just say that staircase and zaphod won't be incompatible for long...

I cant unapply the swsusp2 patch, so I guess i'll wait for next release. :(

Hmm. I'm having a really strange problem: when I try and copy large amounts of stuff (when it's just a few files it works fine, but not with eg. my 10GB of music) to my iRiver (iHP-120, uses plain USB mass storage), at some point the transfer always freezes -- the disk access light keeps going constantly on the iRiver, even after I kill the transferring program, log out of KDE (which I had previously attributed the bug to, but apparently not), unmount the drive, anything, but after that point nothing seems to actually get transferred and it just corrupts the drive. So that leaves two possibilities: kernel, or hardware. I'm currently on 2.6.10-nitro2, but it's done this with every kernel I've used so far (I think they were nearly all nitros).
So my question is threefold:
1) Has anyone experienced anything similar?
2) Any config options I should look at?
3) Has there been any activity around this part of the kernel recently, eg, would it be worth it to try and upgrade? (I'd rather avoid rc versions, and would like to keep nvagp as well.)

Just an update on this - I'm now using the latest love-sources, which is based on 2.6.11_rc1-mm1 and includes Con's patches. It's working perfectly with an identical config including SMP/HT.

nevermind it works only if you compile in software suspend 2, not as modules, then ndiswrapper will compile :D

You lose that bet. Reiser3. It did the same thing with ext3.
