I'm starting a new thread since we have a new git repo and new website

Website: http://zen-sources.org

PLEASE post bug reports on the issue tracking on zen-sources.org

Git-Kernel: git clone git://zen-sources.org/zen/kernel.git
Portage-Overlay:git clone git://zen-sources.org/zen/portage-overlay.git
^^ the portage overlay will not only include kernel ebuilds but also ebuilds for kernel related apps that are not in portage like phctools, btrfsprogs and the latest e2fsprogs

Now that thats out of the way, here is the whats included in 2.6.26-rc1-zen0 so far:

origin/bfq
origin/btrfs
origin/cko
origin/expose-vmsplit
origin/ext4
origin/fbcondecor
origin/hz-kconfig
origin/l7filter
origin/march-native
origin/master
origin/phc-acpi-cpufreq
origin/strip-debug
origin/swap_prefetch
origin/tp_smapi
origin/zen-logo

Well depends on what you mean by "stable". If you go by the official lkml, then anything based on 2.6.25-1 should be stableish right now. On the other hand, your hardware and kernel configuration might make 2.6.26-rc1 (and derivatives) "stable" for you. That may or may not be true for others... In my experience, either go for the patchsets based on stable releases of kernels (i.e. starting with zen1), otherwise, things up from -rc5 usually seem stable.

no i do not plan on only tagging stable versions, that was dodo1122's methodology, but -zen0's are basically used to denote a work in progress, its there for people test if they cant wait :).... once we get all the features that people want into the kernel I will tag a -zen1, and then from there on every successive tag should be "more stable" as people start reporting bugs or requesting additional patches. The versions, -zen2, -zen3 etc will get bumped when there are changes so you know something has changed

stable is just something you users have to decide on, im gonna keep bumping the zen version as changes come out, if you think a particular release kicks ass speak up, but in general as the zen revision increases the more stable the kernel should get

first e-build will come with 26-rc1-zen1, which will either be today or tomorrow, there will be snapshot ebuilds only, there is no point really to that git ebuild, if you want a live kernel just pull the repo manually with git, however I might make a stub e-build for git users so that portage does always try to install other kernels

the new ebuilds will also be in a new overlay which will sit on the new repo, there will be a zen overlay for the kernel and kernel related things, like filesystem utils that dont exist in portage yet, like the btrfs progs, etc.

Tagging stable versions was not my methodology, but waninkoko's. I just followed it :P.
As always, if you want some feature included, tell us. Also, if you want something fixed, well, you need to report it. We can't test every single hardware compatibility.

tagging the "stable" releases is so arbitrary and meaning less, just cause no one reports a bug doesnt make it stable

I have seen some posts on the forums and around the nets about patches for ati-drivers to work on 2.6.25 kernels. Have they been requested or put into zen yet, rmh3093? Hate to pester about it but I am addicted to zen sources but ati hates anything newer then 2.6.24.

Thanks!

hacks worked for the .25 kernel because the functions were not removed comepletly, in .26 they are gone, we are not going to revert those patches either, fglrx is going to need to be patched for .26

my suggestion is give up 3d support for a few weeks and use radeonhd, 3d support is right around the corner, my bet is that radeonhd supports 3d before .26 is out of the rc stage

An ebuild is ready for 2.6.26-rc1-zen0, which is also tagged in the git repo. The ebuild is in the our new overlay, NOT custom-kernels overlay. To fetch the new overlay do the following:

git clone git://zen-sources.org/zen/portage-overlay.git

Is there any quick and easy way (or plan) to integrate this (once again) into a layman overlay? I like to keep my updates all in one place, not having to look at everything I ever installed from a third party to make sure it's up-to-date.

I know this might come across as being just lazy, but I always liked the layman and custom-kernels approach...until the ebuilds stopped. :)
