Hello,
Is the nforece2 apic patch included in this patchset? If not, could it be included in the future? Thanks for the great kernels!

That one slipped under my nose. I'll definitely include it in the next release. Thanks for the heads up.

Heh, I was right in the middle of compiling love2 when this thread popped up.
I'm using 2.6.1-love3 on a Dell Latitude c800, if anyone cares.

It's a problem with the ebuild. We're fixing it now. It should be up shortly.

Please, could you take kexec out of the patchset. Nforce2 users can'tpower down the system with it inside. I am not going to try this kernel, as is is the same base as love2, which locks up. Currently I am trying to find out what is common in my and asimon's config, who has the same problem.

The supermount patch that has been applied is broken with 2.6.1, it causes a kernel oops (see https://bugs.gentoo.org/show_bug.cgi?id=37807), 2.0.3a needs to be applied instead. :cry:

2.6.1-love3 up and running. This version fixed the bootsplash problem I was having with love2. Anybody try using kexec yet? I currently have kexec-tools-1.8.tar.gz is that the latest version?

Dracnor: I tried it with -love1, and it did work. AFAIK 1.8 is the latest version of kexec-tools. This is from my post in the -love1 thread:
Wedge_ wrote:
For anyone who wants to try kexec:
Once you've compiled the kernel with kexec support, you need to get kexec-tools. Extract them somewhere (I didn't make an ebuild, if anyone wants to go ahead), and cd into the directory created. Open kexec/kexec-syscall.c in an editor and look for the line that says
Code:
#define __NR_kexec_load 259

Change it to
Code:
#define __NR_kexec_load 274

then run "make" to compile the tools. This creates two files under objdir/build, sbin/kexec and bin/kexec_test. I'm not exactly sure what kexec_test is supposed to do (you need to run it with "kexec kexec_test") but all it seemed to do was cause a normal reboot. To load a new kernel using kexec, use
Code:
objdir/build/sbin/kexec --command-line="`cat /proc/cmdline`" -l -f /boot/bzImage


You should see a line saying "Starting new kernel", then the usual boot messages should start scrolling past as if you'd just left the bootloader. It doesn't seem to like the framebuffer - it prints the "Starting new kernel" message, then doesn't display anything else, but the system does actually load the new kernel. If you want to try it but have framebuffer enabled, you can just remove the vga=/video= options from your bootloader temporarily, that seems to work for me.

I'm also not sure of the best way to use it. When you run the kexec command, it loads the new kernel immediately, which can screw things up as filesystems don't get unmounted properly, and hardware isn't reset etc. The 3Com NIC on my nForce2 in particular didn't like this, and gave all sorts of errors once the new kernel had loaded. If anyone has suggestions on the best way to go through the usual pre-reboot procedure but to run kexec instead of reboot, please post them.

I believe the change to kexec-syscall.c should actually be
Code:
#define __NR_kexec_load 275
for this particular kernel.

@PrakashKC: I didn't know it was nForce2 boards that were affected by kexec. I have one myself, but didn't try to shutdown while using kexec in -love1 so I never noticed. I managed to get it working properly again, by adding some extra "#ifdef CONFIG_KEXEC"s in various places and disabling kexec support in the kernel config. If you find out what's causing your lockups and get -love3 running, try applying this patch and see if it works for you.
