Fasten your seatbelts, because here is the new nitro-sources for your 2.6.8-rc3 engine! ;)

applied patches:
Code:

2.6.8-rc3-win4lin.patch.bz2
from_2.6.8-rc3_to_staircase7.E
schedrange.diff
schedbatch2.4.diff

9000_SuSE-117-writeback-lat.patch
BadRAM-2.6.8-rc3.patch.bz2
akpm_latency_rollup.patch
preempt-timing-2.6.8-rc2
vesafb-tng-0.9-rc3-r3-2.6.8-rc3.patch.bz2
lirc-2.6.5-20040404

gcloop-2.6-20040527.patch
kernel-events-rml-2.6.8-rc3-6.patch
acpi-20040715-2.6.8.diff.bz2


Ebuild at http://www.sepi.be/nitro/2.6.8-rc3-nitro1/nitro-sources-2.6.8_rc3-r1.ebuild

nitro-sources is a new kernel patchset which uses the latest CK patches to keep latency as low as possible + other popular patches like lirc, win4lin, reiser4, supermount, vesafb-tng, bootsplash, acpi, swsusp2, squashfs, ... to give you the most complete and fastest GNU/Linux desktop experience.

Please note that a few things were left out and will probably be back in the next release: bootsplash, write-barriers and lufs
And I'll try to add swsusp2 as well.

I wanted to wait first and fix the failed hunks, but I don't have much time these days .. so that's why I release it anyway (but without bootsplash, write-barriers, lufs and swsusp2 :()

But other usual stuff (all latest ck's patches (except write-barriers), win4lin, reiser4, lirc, vesafb-tng, acpi, squasfs, ...) are still in, so don't panic ;)

Enjoy :)

Oh, and helping me out with failed hunks is welcome! :)

#mkdir -p /usr/local/portage/sys-kernel/nitro-sources
#cp nitro-sources-2.6.8_rc3-r1.ebuild /usr/local/portage/sys-kernel/nitro-sources
uncoment the PORTDIR_OVERLAY line ( take out the # ) from your /etc/make.conf
change it to: PORTDIR_OVERLAY=/usr/local/portage
#env-update
#ACCEPT_KEYWORDS="~x86" emerge --digest nitro-sources

I've been using love-sources but I'm thinking about trying yours. I'm going to wait for barriers to be put back in though.

I've been trying to get my VIA KT266 to work with athcool on. I'm sort of suspecting some kind of timing issue. The reason why I prefer to have barriers on is with athcool on it triggers hard locks. Only occassionally can I ssh into my box otherwise I have to hard reset which makes me nervous. So far barriers has eased this pain for me greatly.

Thanks for your hard work.

seppe,

Another good job. Quick question (I haven't tried it yet), is reiser4 definitely in it? It's not in the patch list that's why I ask.

Also, what rejects do you get and with what patches?

[edit]

forget my first qusetion - I had a look at the patch :D

[/edit]

Call me stupid, but if I wanted to manually apply this patch (I do that, so I don't have to pull a whole kernel emerge everythime), what would I apply this on top of? Vanilla? -ckX?

what's the difference between this and love-sources? is it newer or has love-sources been discontinued or what?

@ MighMoS: As the first post says, it is for the 2.6.8-rc3 kernel, just apply it to the that or use the ebuild. An ebuild doesn't get a full kernel each time: once you have emerged a 2.6.7 kernel (or put one in distfiles), then the emerge command would only need to find the kernel patch (such as the 2.6.8-rc3 patch) and then the nitro patch. Just as if you re-emerged a prog already on your system - it wouldn't fetch it again, or you would have distfiles full of exactly the same tarballs!

@ PovMan: best thing is to look at the patch lists and see the difference. However, the easy answer is that love is based on the np sched whilst this is based on con's staircase. Also, love has a recent odd habit of making a base patch and leaving any changes (such as win4lin, etc) as sperate 'add-on' patches. This is ok if you only want one 'add-on' patch but, of course, makes it nearly impossible to add more than 1 or 2 as each time a patch is added the code changes the so the next one won't apply cleanly.

I'm also not sure what is happening with love, since oneofone stopped doing them, they have slowed considerably and as I say, have this odd format. Possibly another one out soon though.

I'd give this one a go - it is good and snappy :D

any possibility to switch to kernel 2.6.x without loosing a lot of graphics performance for games?

i would prefer kernel 2.6 (alsa included, better hardware-support etc.) but im afraid of switch, cause there is no 3D acceleration available.

Um, not sure if this the right thread for a generic kernel question like that, but if it is, you'll have to provide a lot more information than that. Also, I'm not sure what you mean by no 3d acceleration? There is full, and better 3D in the 2.6 kernels than the 2.4 due to improved drivers, better hardware support and so on.

It might be better to start a new thread so people can help you with your specific problem.

seppe, can you apply gensplash instead of bootsplash?

i've heard that gensplash is a next generation bootsplash made by spock (author of vesafb-tng)

link to gensplash is here
(there is a patch for kernel, usermode software and how-to)

Hey, we're not slowing down - we just laid down some new release rules which effectively open up development to everyone. You want a new patch and no staff member has made one? Sure - make one yourself and send it over to one of us (ops in #love-sources) and we'll test it.

If it's fine with us, we'll release it and credit you for making it.

Raku, here is the updated gensplash patch for nitro1. I haven't tested it other than making sure the patch applied clean and doing a kernel compile with it enabled. I am going to test it out in a couple of hours, so feel free to try it before then. Please let me know the results.

Thanks dryre, I will add that in the next nitro release to replace bootsplash. If someone can fix the swsusp2 patch, that would be nice :D

Could you provide a link to the patch for swsusp2 patches? I will give it a shot. I tried bootsplash, but that turned into a nightmare for me :D.

Is VESA framebuffer broken on it? It does not recognize my vga=0x33b line. When I try another mode, it makes a very small window on the top right of my lcd and put some garbage on the rest of the screen.

Maybe the next nitro will be released today or tomorrow. I updated ck's patches and added fbsplash. I had to fix some failed hunks, but I'm not I did it all correct .. it's still compiling, so I think everything is ok :)

edit: darn, it failed :(
