diff link: http://prdownloads.sourceforge.net/darkpatches/patch-2.6.11.5-dark1.diff.bz2?download

To those of you who want reiser4: http://prdownloads.sourceforge.net/darkpatches/reiser4.diff?download

Keep in mind I can't test reiser4 or verify that it works, so its an untested addon patch.

Wow, it looks like a great patchset. The only thing missing there is reiser4 support. Unfortunately, there isn't a single patch for reiser4 in mm-broken-out, there are several of them and I don't know the which is the order for applying them. Could you help me? Thanks in advance.

Meqif, I recommend waiting a few days so I can finish 2.6.11.5-darkfs1, which will have reiser4 aswell as most of whats in this release.

IIRC fallow posted a single reiser4 patch in his 2.6.11-love2 thread :)

if you want to go with the mm-patches. There is a file called series in the broken-out dir which tells you the order in which the patches have to applied.

Mind giving me a link to this patch?

Edit: nevermind, I got reiser4 done already.
Edit 2: I'm going to release the reiser4 patch as seperate patch for now.

Thanks for the quick replies!
I tried to patch the kernel with fallow's patch (which was successful except for linux/include/linux/init_task.h, which I edited myself) but it fails compiling (in the file I edited, lol). But since you say you got reiser4 done, I'm not worried, I can wait. Thanks for your great work. :)

EDIT: Oh, you already released it. I'm going to apply it.

Man, this is a great patchset, very fast, even faster than genetic stuff, the only thing lacking for me is an ebuild.
Congrats and thank you for making this great patchset :lol:

Thanks for the complaments, on the ebuild side, I can't test an ebuild on slackware so I can't verify that it would even work.

I seriously couldn't tell you, because I don't have any WiFi stuff.

Edit: If you want to try it and report back on how it goes I'd be very happy :)

Well, for users expecting a 2.6.12-rc1 release, don't hold your breath. Until 2.6.12 calms down, I won't release any patches upon it.

Having problems patching the kernel. Just to make sure I'm doing this correctly:

tar -xvjf linux-2.6.11.5.tar.bz2
put 2.6.11.5-dark1.diff.bz2 in /usr/src/linux-2.6.11.5
bzcat 2.6.11.5-dark1.diff.bz2 | patch -p1 ?
when I did that, there were numerous patches that wouldn't work, am i doing something wrong?

Thanks

you should use 2.6.11, not 2.6.11.5 - as the .5 patches are already included. read the contents of this patch...

This release is called 2.6.11.5-dark1 for a reason, it includes 2.6.11.5.


Edit: superstoned, this patchset isn't even tested on gentoo, its tested on slackware linux, so you can run this on any distro you like.
Edit: err, superstoned already pointed this out, its nice to have someone else helping out on the support end :).

well I promised my girlfriend not to fiddle with my stable suse install (I already sinned, installed KDE 3.4 etc...) as I almost weekly fully broke my debian system before, sometimes when she had to use it for schoolwork :D thank god / err, klaus knopper / for knoppix...

anyway, I won't try it until gentoo is on, and is ready for me playing with it :D

Well, I didn't mean to give support, but if people ask questions I can answer, its tempting for me 8)
that's why mandrakeclub.nl still has me as a moderator, altough mandrake is already some time ago :twisted:

Well, its good to know that I'm not the only one answearing questions :) (gets tiring after awhile you know). Also, this is why I don't have a girlfriend, too much work for me...... I mean...... fiddling with kernels is my life!

2.6.11.6-dark1 due out in a few hours, it will be a maintaince update, which will only have the 2.6.11.6 patch (which fixes security holes).

Edit: Currently, I have no plans for any major updates. I'm also backing off from inotify and will not be including it in any 2.6.11.X-dark releases because for now, what I have here is working perfectly fine and does everything I need it too, so I see no need to update.
