The source for 2.6.27-gentoo is finally in portage. The .config for that source is now up at the site, in both x86 and x86_64 flavors. I think this is the last addition for a while.

Blessed be!
Pappy

I was surprised last night. 2.6.27.1 hit portage. It was late when I did my sync, so I didn't get time to make the .configs. Fortunately, that's not a problem anymore. The new 2.6.27.1 config is now available.

Blessed be!

The .27 updates keep coming fast and furiously. The .configs for 2.6.27.2 are available now at the site in both flavors. And here I thought things would wind down a bit. :roll:

Blessed be!

The site has been updated. The .configs have been updated. New .configs for 2.6.25.19 (accidentally omitted last time around) 2.6.26.7 2.6.27.3, and 2.6.27-gentoo-r1 (new) have also been added . Come on down to Pappy's! See what fun I've been having!

Blessed be!
Pappy

Would your Seed Kernel configs work for other linux source packages, such as tuxonice, etc.? I use tuxonice on my laptop and the default gentoo sources on my desktop.

So far, I have not worked with TuxOnIce. I have concentrated on the vanilla and gentoo sources. I am sure; however, that using the settings from my seeds with a comparable TuxOnIce source would work just fine.

Let me know if it works out.

Blessed be!

Before the official ebuild can hit portage, the new seeds for 2.6.27.4 in x86 and x86_64 flavors are available! I also fixed a few mistakes in 2.6.27-2.6.27.3 for x86_64-02 version seeds. Enjoy!

Blessed be!

I have found that it works very well for TuxOnIce kernel as well, You just need to make sure that you use the same kernel version number.

i tried to install a new system with gentoo 2008.0/Desktop profile.
it got kernel-2.6.27-r1 upon updating system prior to any X install.
my config for the new kernel ended up in kernel panic.
now that i have the config from your site compiling kernel.
why last 2 links show same config
2.6.27-gentoo-r1-x86-02.config

anyway i am trying the first link content.
will post back if this comes up ok.
i have not bothered to read what it has or not
so far it has not thrown it away the compile of make and modules

You have to manually select device drivers with pappy's kernel seeds. Your kernel panic "vfs not syncing" means that kernel can't mount filesystems. Check that you have right ata/pata drivers enabled in kernel and your bootloader's config has right root partition.

Private message me with the results of lspci -n, cat /proc/cpuinfo as well as your .config and your /etc/fstab file. I'll get you going.

Blessed be!

I gave up Catholicism for Lent when I was eighteen. It's the best I've ever done giving up something for Lent.

Blessed be!

The new .configs for 2.6.27-gentoo-r2 are now currently available at the site.

Blessed be!

When using the kernel seeds I get an error when compiling the proprietary fglrx module. I tracked down the error message to have to do with fglrx being not compatible with RT patched kernels. I'm not using RT patches at all. I tried gentoo-sources and vanilla-sources. Sorry, I don't have the error message at hand.

Anybody experienced this problem too?

Is there a setting in the seeds that could have this effect? I did compare the config with my standard .config and did not find anything obvious. But I could well have overseen a setting :roll:

My first thought is it might have something to do with the preemption settings under "Processor type and features". Start with the RCU preemtion setting, then work with the main preemption settings.

Note this is guesswork. I have nothing in my family of machines that runs with ATI video.

See above. If not that, then search the forums. There are lots of posts about fglrx drivers being tempermental.

Blessed be!

I forgot to ask you to let me take a look at the .config you made. My bad.

You can do it here, or you can private message me with it.

Thanks.

Hi,

You said: "He tends to turn on CPU scheduling, and other irritants"

Could you please explain why Kernel CPU scheduling is bad?

It's not bad, per se, but fair CPU scheduling is a slowdown on systems. I don't see a need for something that, at this point in reality, does nothing but slow systems to a crawl. My .configs are built for speed...ergo anything that slows systems down isn't going into my kernels.

Blessed be!

New .configs for 2.6.27.5 in both x86 and x86_64 have been added to the site. Enjoy.

Blessed be!

Thank you pappy you kernel seeds a great guide to understanding the kernel. I used kcompare to see the differences between your seeds and my kernel config. I did not know you can get rid of the kmem device so easily. the problem with kmem is that it can by taken advantage of by rootkits. Why do you have all the cpufreq governors enabled when most people use only the default governor.



God Bless,
Kevin

Which version has that? I'll have to look into that...I've been working to get things more consistent from kernel to kernel. It's sometimes difficult though. But if I'm off that beam, I'd like to know. I only use the performance governor...and only ever will.

Blessed be!
