doh!

Last question, I promise :)

I tried applying the patch like so:

patch -p1 > patchname

And it did it...I guess. Am I supposed to get some output? It just gave me a new console line...I am assuming it applied, but is there a way to know?

patch -p1 -i /path/to/patch/name.patch

would work, I would happy to provide both ebuilds and patches so all this would be idiot proof.

No, you should see console output. I think you got your file pipe backwards..
Code:
# cd /usr/src/linux-x.y.z-blahblahblah && patch -p1 < patchfile


mm2 contested. Long and short of it: pretty much the same as mm1

But it's another row to everything, so hey. It looks neat (and i changed the URL again)

I forgot to ask what are the stats of this test machine - I'm mainly interested in weither it's an AMD or an Intel, and if it's an AMD if it suffers from the now famous AMD instability bug..

I would really love if someone with a broken AMD chip could try the AMD workaround in the latest -love kernels.

Oh, sure
1.6GHz P4 laptop
256 MB RAM
17 GB HD of some speed that I couldn't find but is either 5400 or 7200 rpm

I have an AMD Athlon (Thunderbird) at home, I can do a couple contests on it some time, but the problem is lately I've spent more time on campus than at home, so it might first be the weekend when I can take the time out to run tests.

What do you count as being a broken AMD chip? I'm running a 1.2ghz Duron and would be willing to test things out for you. I could also swap in a 900mhz TBird that I have laying around if the Duron isn't what you're looking for.

Any AMD CPU that suffers from the bug that requires you to pass mem=nopentium at boot, to be 100% stable will do.

I'm hoping the AMD workaround will remove the requirement for mem=nopentium.

i pass the mem-nopentium flag in grub.conf
and am using an athlon-tbird at 1400MHz,
not overclocked. i added this flag since i had
figured out it prevented some system lockups
i was experiencing.

at the time i was using slackware, and linux-
questions.org was the main board i used.
perhaps you might be interested in the
thread i started. click here to read it.

i would be glad to help where i can.

Running 2.6.0-test5-love3 now.
Trying to build reiser4progs, but the latest snapshot doesn't compile. There goes a bug report.

The system feels really responsive, no indication at all that I'm running two compiles at the same time, and have a load of 3.5 or something like that Framebuffer doesn't seem to work, but maybe I screwed up doing the configuration.
No ALSA skips at all.

Okay, I thought I understood the problem, but now maybe I don't.

My Athlon box (doing a bunch of things including a compile right now) hasn't had stability problems, although it has had a total deathlock or two when memory usage got high and the system was under enough stress. I've never booted with mem=nopentium. Some LKML posts I happened across mentioned not even getting X to start without mem=nopentium. So am I still a bug candidate (never thought I'd ask that!) or is it "all good or all bad" with the bug?

I'm still trying to undo the damage caused by the broken gcc. So far nothing has worked to fix it and I really dont want to format.

Edit: Finally fixed my stuff. I had to make a package of an older gcc from a work machine and copy it to my laptop. Currently compiling kde 3.1.4, once that is done I'll test out love3 in a gui.

Just installed test5-love3, really nice so far. It's a bit faster then mm-sources for me, seems to be nice and stable too. My system is an asus board with an amd 2200+, 1gig of ram, and an nvidia card. Everything just works ;) Thanks for the nice sources lovechild!

I'm happy that people like the kernel patch, I just wanted to give you guys an update:

Nick v16 is coming in the next few days - Nick has been battling a few AS bugs instead of coding the process scheduler.

The new Reiser4 seems fair stable from what reports I heard, I have been unable to get a reply from the Namesys guys about any near future plans to change the data format again - but I personally doubt it.

I'm also looking for patches to merge for the next release so far I've found some md fixes that needs to be included and some O_direct patches for NFS.

There has been no release of CFQ since CFQ-4 which is what we have now and it seems stable. Jens Axboe has not replied to my mails.

So for now the next Love-Sources release might take a few more days than I wanted it to, but I can't release what I don't have.

Yeah, it's no problem. I was just making sure you didn't miss it.

Anyway, now with the mirror you shouldn't have to worry so much about that, especially with the ability to put an ebuild up there.

I have been running love-sources-r3 (and tried the other two as well) with no problems, until...

I recompiled everything because I read that nvidia no longer conflicts with nptl and wanted to try it out. Everything is working fine, except...

If I try to boot into a different kernel, canna won't start. Everything else works fine. I removed canna from the default runlevel and rebooted into a different kernel and was able to use everything else with no problems.

I tried recompiling canna under a different kernel. I then recompiled glibc followed by canna under a different kernel but with no luck.

Any ideas on what I would need to recompile under a "regular" kernel to get it to compile? Any ideas which patch could be causing this strange behaviour?

[edit]
Through google, I found somebody else having the same problem with canna and nptl. :? Any ideas why it does work under love-sources?

I've been using the test5-love3 kernel here for a week now. Every day (when my system has been up for 24 - 28 hours, my network connection starts having problems.

It's like it is down for 30 seconds, and then back up for a second or two. Also when it gets weird, and I try 'ifconfig eth0 down' the ifconfig process just hangs, and doesnt complete.

When the network goes down like this, there isn't anything that I have found out that I can do other than reboot, which then hangs at "Saving Random Seed..."

Does anyone know how to fix this?

I don't have ACPI in the kernel, but I do have the same apm options I've been using for a few months now. Also I have the same network options enabled in love3 that I have in test5-mm1 (which works flawlessly).

I recently added mem=nopentium to my grub.conf to see if that would fix it. It did not. Other than that, I have no memory related things set in grub.conf, nor do I have any ACPI stuff enabled (or disabled) in grub.conf either.

Thanks for reading such a long post,
Ira

I set up a mirror (that lovechild has access to) on my home box; this sync's up with my webspace every 20 minutes, so we have a fast mirror.

http://www.csupomona.edu/~iwsnyder/gentoo/lovechild/

I'm pretty sure that lovechild hasn't put anything up there yet, but I dropped my love3 source and ebuild into the mirror.

I wanted to see what all the excitement was about so I emerged the development sources and patched it with the love-sources. That went well, as well as building the kernel. I was able to get the kernel to boot and got nvidia-kernel working correctly. Startx works and programs load very fast, (but the mouse acceleration seems off). However, when I start kdm and enter my login, everything freezes and I have to hold the power button to get it to shut off. I had a similar problem with the latest ck-sources. I'd really like to get his working. Please help! Thanks! If you need any of the output from a program please ask.

Is there any list of exactly what patches are in test5-love3?

Looking at the patch itself, I was able to extract the following:

VESAFB Refresh Rate Change Patch v0.1.5
Supermount removable media support
gcc 3.4/3.3-hammer support
Opcode checker
CFQ, or complete fairness queueing, disk scheduler
Reiser4 (EXPERIMENTAL very fast general purpose filesystem)
Reiser4 Syscall patch
Futex locks

Is this a complete list?
