The functioning monitor mode patches are not available for above 0.13.

You mean orinoco 1.5 don't support "monitoring mode"??. But well..we can ask fallow (if he doesn't mind), to put orinoco driver 1.3 plus monitor patch mode http://www.kismetwireless.net/code/orinoco-0.13e-dragorn3.diff if that's ok with that...or from here http://www.tzi.de/~plasmahh/orinoco.html driver for 1.3 + monitor patch

They do, but the guys from the second link say something about the support being not full.
Quote:

A: Well, the better depends on what card you have and what you want to do. Here is what I have noticed as main differences so far. 0.15 has quite a lot of changes, so it will fix bugs, add new features, be more stable, adds bugs be more unstable etc. So if it just works for your card (which should do on older ones) the 0.13e is as good as the 0.15 from what I can say. The main difference is that with the 0.15 the Monitor mode does not work properly, and attempts to add a patch for that failed, causing my card to freeze. I dont know exactly why that happens, since in 0.13e it does not happen. Also the 0.15 has removed the per-packet stats when in rfmon mode. So if you plan to use some software that needs rfmon such as kismet then you will want to use the 0.13e driver. If you just want a working card, use the 0.15 driver.

I`m reading this from some time but I`must add something .

I have a request about scheduler. I think this thread is more important than this https://forums.gentoo.org/viewtopic-p-2119119.html , so I`m writing here.

In my opinion NickScheduler is working very well and I want to use it with next release instead of also good but not my preferable Staircase.
I think that genetics for NickScheduler can be a good addition as option in menu config.

So keep up very well working NickSched. Staircase as option is not required.
Love-Sources users are used to using NickSched from long time ;) .
For me the IngoSched can be a alternative but I want to see genetics in NickSched definitly more than another scheduler as option .

that`s all.
thanks.
and pozdrowienia(greetings) from Poland ;)

Whoa. Just whoa.

Yesterday, my comp was running my games on PCSX at 30fps max. Today, after I installed love-sources (rc5): 60fps.
No skipping whatsoever. Sound quality high. Truly amazing sight. Now, I don't know what did the trick; I reniced X, and love-sources was compiled with:
Code:

CONFIG_CFLAGS_STRING="-march=pentium4 -mtune=pentium4 -O3 -pipe -fomit-frame-pointer -momit-leaf-frame-pointer -fprefetch-loop-arrays -mfpmath=sse -fbranch-target-load-optimize2 -msse2 -msse -mmmx -ftracer -falign-functions=32"

Genetic Anticipitory scheduler is new to me as well. What I found weird was that nitro-sources could not take those CFLAGS, these sources could. I'm never going back.
Keep up the good work. :D

monitor mode and scanning masically the same, monitor mode was dropped because some of the new firmware dosent support it, instead of using kismet, you can u airsnort

'iwlist eth2 scanning' will show all of the AP's around which means packet sniffing will work also

succsessfully recreated my hardlock 3 times last night. no ssh even available.

1. I was compiling something.
2. Using hal, dbus, and gnome-volume-manager to manage my device -- I plug in my USB key.
3. copied and pasted one text file onto the drive.
4. Right click the drive and unmount.
5. unplug the drive.
6. instant lockup!


not sure whose fault it is.... may test tonight by downgrading to stable hal and dbus

so it`s seems that is hard releted to the usb support. Milu has similar problem with usb I think.
so , in the further release will be no any bk`s for usb support etc. just usb from 2.6.11-vanilla.
sorry for this also :)

cheers. :)

and small btw.

maybe is here somebody who will be able and have intend to making some nice wallpapers for us :P :)

Great work!!!
Now switched from 2.6.11-rc4-nitro1 to 2.6.11-rc4-love1 with genetics :D
Everything works now faster (with genetic as).
Much faster than my first try 2.6.9 + zaphod + genetic anticipatory IO scheduler (from Jake Moilanen's patchset).
Xorg starts & works faster... etc, etc...

Unfortunately my system just locked up after about ~5 hours of uptime. It was neat while it worked though. Seems like it was too early to say it worked after all. No idea what caused it, since there's nothing in the logs. I'd quess it's related to SMP though (seems like single CPU people (or non HT p4) haven't had any problems with Nicksched) - anyone using this with SMP/SMT (p4)?


I something strange on my SMP system - after some hours of uptime I get a sort-of lock, where the screen blanks if I am in X or stops printing keyboard input if I am on a tty. However, something is still responding as I can (sometimes) switch between ttys, but I can't log out or dmesg.
I don't get the same problem with 2.6.10-gentoo-r6, my stable kernel.

Apart from that - wow, my first time with Love-sources and while the system was up I saw my Climatepredication.net avg timestep drop about 0.5%. Doesn't sound a lot but thats working against over 200 hours of CPU time with gentoo-dev-sources. Seriously had no idea a kernel patchset could make that much difference. Great stuff, I'm converted. Looking forward to the next release... Thanks fallow.

I don't think this is BK stuff's fault. I am running my own pathset, which is based on vanilla 2.6.11 and I'm getting lockups when unmouting USB devices. However, I am using genetic anticipatory I/O scheduler. I'll change I/O scheduler and report how it goes... :P
