Also gstreamer has problems with 1.04 shipped with kernel, so i prefer to compile alsa for the specified kernel. For me it works great that way :)

Hm using nvidias driver and vesa-tng vesafb console ... still working fine, switched a lot ... maybe it will happening, i hope not ;).

Try using vesafb instead of radeonsfb.

best regards

hmm vesavb overlaps with the radeon driver in X
hmm ... I remember .. when svgalib_helper isn't loaded it works fine :-D

so I have the choice:
bootsplash or svgalib :)

When I try to use the gentoo-dev-sources 2.6.8 (config from 2.6.7 with make oldconfig)...

Everything seems to load fine, then comes several call traces, preemt messages (????) and finally it tells me:

Code:
/sbin/rc: line 534:   5646 Segmentation fault               /sbin/ifconfig lo 127.0.0.1 up 2/dev/null


Unless anyone knows what is going on here it means back to 2.6.7 for me...

Thanks,

Gwion

I didn't get vfat to work, not even when I try to mount the partition by hand with different codepage and iocharset options.

Like this:
Code:
mount -t vfat /dev/hde1 /mnt/windows -o codepage=850,iocharset="iso8859-1"

I'm having the same problem with cdrecord also, it won't allow me to burn CDs as a user. I tried cdrtools-2.01_alpha33, but no luck either. Hopefully newer versions of cdrtools fix this, maybe the next release.

anyway, thanks :D

since the 2.6.8 k3b refuses to burn dvd's
and indeed the vfat mount thing

I will return to 2.6.7 for a while
Somewhere between vanilla 2.6.8.1, cdrecord/crdao? and k3b there is a grave memory-leak bug which I encountered two minutes ago trying to burn a cd with k3b as root. In the middle of burning an audio-cd from wav-files the kernel started swapping like crazy, and the burn failed of course. Everything went to a crawl. After killing everything and going into single user mode, 1GB of RAM was used (-buffers/cache) which no process claimed. Only way to free the memory was to reboot. Trying to use the computer after going into single user and back failed miserably as I had to rely completely on whatever was left of my swap.

Just thought I would post this from the www.k3b.org News page:

Quote:

Do not use Kernel 2.6.8

A patch that was introduced into the kernel shortly before the 2.6.8 release makes K3b and also the dvd+rw-tools unusable on Linux (unless run as root but that is not recommended). The very important GET CONFIGURATION MMC command is rejected by the kernel for reasons I cannot see and writing commands like MODE SELECT also fail (K3b cannot detect CD writers without it) even when the device is opened O_RDWR. Until this issue has been solved I strongly recommend to stick to kernel version 2.6.7.

Solved the problem for me too. Has there just been a namechange of the filesystem type or is this just avoiding a problem instead of solving it?

gentoo-dev-sources on thinkpad T42: broke ACPI - won't completely shut down unless I pull the battery. Also madwifi-driver cannot emerge because it now gets a invalid number of parameters gcc error when making a call into the kernel. Definitely sticking with 2.6.7.

(2) My Windows-filesystems (VFAT) cannot be mounted. This seems to happen only when I am booting 2.6.8; when I boot 2.6.7 everything works fine. Could this be connected with the new FAT codepage setting in 2.6.8? I just used the default.


VFAT refuses to mount at boot for me but it works just fine doing it manualy strangely enough.

With kernel 2.6.8 and as normal user the writer cd is detecded only as reader and I can't write cds. After making k3bsetup it was detected as writer and I can write cd, but after reboot the writer cd is gone and detected only as reader. :x
I don't have problems using kernel 2.6.7-gentoo-r11 and udev.

Look above, this is a known bug between 2.6.8 and k3b (or rather, between 2.6.8 and cdrtools)

Any news about this on the lkml?

FWIW, I just manually edited drivers/block/scsi_ioctl.c (deleted two lines) as per the patch below:

It's for 2.6.8.1 but the driver in question is the same in both. After killing those two lines (just did it with vi) everything is fine as a regular user:
