here's my first try at making my own kernel sources patchset... i proudly present to you stardust-sources-2.6.7-r1! :)
this is what's in them:

- mm5-based
- staircase scheduler 7.8
- reiser4 snapshot of 01-07-2004
- vesafb-tng 0.9rc2
- bootsplash 3.1.4
- menuconfig-name 1.0

if anyone feels like giving them a go, you can get them at http://tbl.dyndns.org/stardust-moondust-sources/

patches using p1 on 2.6.7-mm5...

if there are any questions, problems, requests, whatever, just ask... :)

changed the url where you can find these and future stardust-sources, now at http://tbl.dyndns.org/stardust-moondust-sources

there you can also find my moondust-sources, a kernel patchset i made specially for my Mac as it doesn't support all the patches of stardust-sources... and it has a working bootsplash too, on ppc!! :)

http://ck.kolivas.org/patches/2.6/2.6.7/2.6.7-ck4/split-out/autoswap.diff only fails with one really easy to fix hunk for mm4.

How well did reiser4 go into mm5? Next time I roll my own I might use mm5 to avoid trouble with staircase.

will try to add that autoswap patch to next release.... let's say give me an hour :wink:

reiser4-2004.07.02-19.36-linux-2.6.7-mm4.diff applied cleanly against mm5 so that should be no hard..

UPDATE:
2.6.7-stardust3 & 2.6.7-moondust3 are ready and at the usual place... left out bootsplash from stardust cos it's hopelessly broken on mm5 anyway, so i'll wait till there's a fix to add it again... moondust still has bootsplash as it's based on vanilla...
and the autoswap patch is added to both releases....

notes-stardust3:
-------------------
2.6.7-mm5 based
+reiser4 02-07-2004
+staircase 7.8
+autoswap
+vesa-tng 0.9-rc2
+menuconfig-name 1.0

notes-moondust3:
---------------------
2.6.7-vanilla based
+staircase 7.8
+autoswap
+bootsplash 3.1.4-sp2
+menuconfig-name 1.0

and again, new versions of both patchsets, here are the notes:
Code:

2.6.7-stardust5 (x86-optimized kernel):
---------------------------------------------

2.6.7-mm5 based

+reiser4 02-07-2004     - reiser4 filesystem support
+staircase 7.8          - con kolivas' staircase scheduler
+config_hz              - configurable timer support
+vesa-tng 0.9-rc2       - next-generation vesa-framebuffer driver
+bootsplash 3.1.4-sp3   - bootsplash support
+menuconfig-name 1.0    - easy and fancy stardust naming ;)

Code:

2.6.7-moondust6 (ppc32-optimized kernel):
--------------------------------------------------

2.6.7-vanilla based

+staircase 7.8          - con kolivas' staircase scheduler
+autoswap               - autoregulates the virtual memory swappiness
+vm_autoregulate2   - extends the swappiness autoregulation to page inactivation
+bootsplash 3.1.4-sp3   - bootsplash support
+menuconfig-name 1.0    - easy and fancy moondust naming ;)


so mostly updates of patches and some new stuff like con kolivas' vm_autoregulate2 patch...
i also tried to patch in autoswap & vm_autoregulate2 into stardust-sources (of course they don't apply cleanly against mm5, but fixed that), but i was having weird problems, so i left them out to be sure.. does anyone know if there are problems between mm5 and these patches.?

oh and there's also working bootsplash support in both sources again!! :D
if you get a black screen using bootsplash (like me..) then do this to fix it -> comment out the initrd line in grub or lilo config and then add bootsplash to your default runlevel and it should boot ok and the bootsplash image should come up at the end..

if there's any trouble, let me know!

2.6.7-moondust7 is out, being the first sources that work on ppc32 architectures and supports reiser4!! :)
didn't actually try to make a reiser4 partition on my mac yet, so i can't confirm that it works yet, but will later... :)

UPDATE: ahhh, too bad, reiser4 on ppc seems to be not working after all.. :cry: compilation succeeds, but mounting a reiser4 partition fails... there seems to be something still really broken with reiser4 on ppc.. is there any place where i can get more info about reiser4 on ppc maybe that someone knows??

Hey,

I tried your stardust5 to try and solve my SMP trouble, but now it crashed and burned on local APIC instead. Gonna try a bit later on, and post the results here.

And even if it doesn't work, at least you got my interest in making my own patch set ;)

ah, thanks for giving my sources a run :) about the apic problem, what exactly goes wrong? is it compilation or during boot..? i'm using apic support too, and have no problems with it :/ what chipset is your mainboard.?
will look into it anyway! :)

elvelind: thanks for the ebuild, copied it and put it on the site with the patches..

about mm6 -> i have made an mm6 based stardust-sources but haven't tested it yet, only fixed all failing patches (i hope.. :) ) and am compiling it now...

update: boots fine, reiser4 works, vesafb works, bootsplash works so i guess it's safe to try it for the latest in mm6 newness :)

notes:
Code:

2.6.7-stardust6 (x86-optimized kernel):
---------------------------------------------

2.6.7-mm6 based

+staircase 7.8          - con kolivas' staircase scheduler
+schedrange             - con kolivas' infrastructure for more policies
+schedbatch 2.1         - con kolivas' batch scheduling
+schediso 2.2           - con kolivas' isochronous scheduling
+reiser4 02-07-2004     - reiser4 filesystem support
+config_hz              - configurable timer support
+vesa-tng 0.9-rc2       - next-generation vesa-framebuffer driver
+bootsplash 3.1.4-sp3   - bootsplash support
+menuconfig-name 1.0    - easy and fancy stardust naming ;)


as you can see i added some new stuf from ck too.. for more info you can always check http://members.optusnet.com.au/ckolivas/kernel/ for more information on using these scheduler patches..

It's during boot; everything just freezes some time after APIC shows up on the screen. Can't remember exactly when and what it says, but I'll check it out tonight.

I have a i875 chipset and I've used APIC before so it might just been me being in to much of a hurry :)

I'll tinker with it later on today, and let you know the status!

Tried to run stardust7 right now and it fails right after

Code:
Checking TSC synchronization across 2 CPUs: Passed


After that everything freezes and aftyer a while I get errors that my CPU temp is over threshold.

I have no idea whats up with that, but I'll try a vanilla 2.6.7 to se if -mm is the problem. If not, I think I might just run with your patchset for a while and tinker with it, IF I can get it up and running :)

kireru: hmmm, i don't really know what's going wrong there, and i don't have an smp x86 machine, so i can't test it myself.... :?
maybe you can try a plain 2.6.7-mm6 to see if the problem's in my patching or in mm-sources... :)
if you do, let me know how it goes..!

oh and there's also a new stardust using the latest reiser4 patch (05-07-2004), but nothing else changed, so it's not really worth it i guess.. :)

Everything works fine with gentoo-dev-sources, well at least up to mounting my reiser4 partition obviously.

I'm gonna try a plain mm as you said today to see if that's the problem. Hopefully that'll work, then I'll just modify your patches a bit and see if I can get it to run properly. Anyway it's a great learning experience if I just can keep myself from bashing my computer to pieces :)

And by the way; I tried the new love6 yesterday, and it does not stop after the TSC sync-thingy. Very strange that yours does that, but let's see if it works at all with -mm, and then I'll try to sort out what it doesn't like about yours.

I'll be back :)

Well, it was the mm stuff that screwed everything up. Guess I'll have to patch gentoo-dev-sources or something with reiser4.

Wish me luck :)

If you get a July reiser4 patch working on vanilla (or gentoo-dev), please tell me what you did. I can't get it to work even though I think I've fixed the failed hunks and compile-time errors.

for without mm reiser4 support You can use this for example :

and this also

Thanks, but I know about cko. I get three hunks that are easy to fix, then three compile-time errors that I fix the same way as cko. It compiles fine but panics when the kernel tries reading a reiser4 FS. I might try cko to see if that panics too. For now I'd rather have the post-06-24 reiser4 improvemnts than the stability of vanilla.

Just wanted to let you know that I fixed the mm-problems; my Promise-card didn't like ACPI anymore as it turned out, so pci=noacpi did the trick. Unfortunately the USB modules crashed when I rebooted, but that's another story...

Now I'm off to try your patch set to see if I can get that to work :)

yes, the usb problems are also due to mm6 so it appears andrew has some fixing to do :)
i'm gonna try and make a new stardust version based on 2.6.7-vanilla to get a stable version for now, till mm settles its probs.. will post when ready ;)
oh, no one got any special requests or something..? i'm a bit out of inspiration.. :)

maybe somethng like this http://fallow.fm.interia.pl/v1.html , with cpu shedulers and some options selectable via USE flags . there are old versions of stair,stair add ons , spa and hybrid etc. here.Maybe You do something better new.And maybe working reiser4 support without mm will become as good stuff for many users ;)

greetngs :)

your wish is my command... :wink:
here are the new stardust-sources-r9 based on vanilla 2.6.7:
Code:

2.6.7-stardust9 (x86-optimized kernel):
---------------------------------------------

2.6.7-vanilla based

+staircase 7.9          - con kolivas' staircase scheduler
+schedrange             - con kolivas' infrastructure for more policies
+schedbatch 2.2         - con kolivas' batch scheduling
+schediso 2.2           - con kolivas' isochronous scheduling
+autoswap               - con kolivas' autoregulating virtual memory swappiness
+vm_autoregulate 2      - con kolivas' swappiness autoregulation extention to page inactivation
+reiser4 07-07-2004     - reiser4 filesystem support
+posix-hrt 04.06.25     - enhanced configurable timer support
+vesa-tng 0.9-rc2       - next-generation vesa-framebuffer driver
+bootsplash 3.1.4-sp3   - bootsplash support
+cflags_select          - custom cflags support
+menuconfig-name 1.0    - easy and fancy stardust naming ;)


as you can see, reiser4 snapshot from yesterday on vanilla, thrown in some updates of ck's stuff, new hi-res timer support..

also, by moving away from mm6 there are no more problems with ACPI/APIC/USB/vesafb/bootsplash (i hope.. :) )
kernel bootsplash support is working fully again, so that fix by commenting out the initrd line in lilo/grub isn't needed anymore..

fallow: thanks a lot for that url, it's verrrrry interesting :) will take a look at it and see if i can implement the cool stuff, like that use-flag stuff, looks really nice... only hope my skills are good enough to make a working release :)) ah, we'll see how it goes...

..off to make a new moondust-sources now, there's some nice new stuff there too, like hi-res timers on ppc, don't think anyone else supports that yet...

...and here is moondust-r11 too :)

Code:

2.6.7-moondust11 (ppc32-optimized kernel):
---------------------------------------------------

2.6.7-vanilla based

+staircase 7.9          - con kolivas' staircase scheduler
+schedrange             - con kolivas' infrastructure for more policies
+schedbatch 2.2         - con kolivas' batch scheduling
+schediso 2.2           - con kolivas' isochronous scheduling
+autoswap               - autoregulates the virtual memory swappiness
+vm_autoregulate 2      - extends the swappiness autoregulation to page inactivation
+reiser4 07-07-2004     - reiser4 filesystem support
+posix-hrt 04.06.25     - enhanced configurable timer support
+bootsplash 3.1.4-sp3   - bootsplash support
+menuconfig-name 1.0    - easy and fancy moondust naming ;)


so, to sum up the new stuff -> ck's updates, reiser4 and posix hires timers..
about that reiser4 support on ppc, as it is now, it still doesn't work, but i've found out this is still a bug with the small/large keys but it isn't located in the kernel stuff, but in reiser4progs-0.5.5... so afaik the reiser4 support in this kernel is fully working on ppc, but we'll just have to wait for an updated reiser4progs.. :?
