More info about this kernel can be found here: http://zen-sources.org
... and yes and ebuild is available in the 'zen-overlay' in layman

Yeah, reiser4 seems to work. This is the official patch, which for some reason caused havoc in 2.6.25. But works fine here.

I just realized that zen 2.6.26 uses iwl3945 and NOT ipw3945. Which explains why I have no wireless :oops: .

Do I just unmerge ipw3945d and ipw3945u and emerge iwl3945-ucode?? No daemon to run? NetworkManager will like it?

forgive my ignorance.

Thanks.

yeah iwl3945 should run well, there is no daemon, it should work with networkmanager, if you do have an issue go to #ipw2100 on freenode/irc or e-mail the wireless-testing mailing list and describe your issue, they have been helpful when I have needed help (back when the driver was new)

As I recall you have been touting iwl3945 for a while. I remember seeing some people complain about through-put but I could be wrong. I like no daemon!

Thanks for the iwl3945 help, try it when I get home.

On another note, I am getting errors on the hdapsd
Code:
May 15 12:26:27 cosmo /etc/init.d/hdapsd[3537]: Make sure your kernel is patched with the blk_freeze patch


But I know I have this is my .config:
Code:

cosmo kernel # cat .config | grep HDAPS
CONFIG_SENSORS_HDAPS=y


It worked in previous zen kernels. Any thoughts? Thanks in advance.

You should try the disk_protect patches from this page: http://thinkwiki.org/wiki/HDAPS

rmh3093 I compiled the most recent git of zen 2.6.25 and hdaps works. Let me try and remember what I did to get it working before I used zen and got lazy. :)

zen from old repo has much much more patches than the one from new repo. This is because we cleaned stuff up, and are not including stuff like concurrent pagecache anymore (which on a sidenote, i'm removing from the old repo as well).
Although this, thinkpad stuff will get into the new tree.

We also started taking care of how the code looks like and whether it's suitable for zen, and because of this won't be including sqlzma, which is just a dirty hack.
udf-2.50 will be included.

actually, the only thing from the old repo that I didnt want to include was -rt related patches since they are made of fail... :)
...if other patches are missing post a request or come on #zen-sources and ask, we started from scratch on .26-rc1 so that things were cleaner, I though I merged most things that were in the old repo but it looks like somethings got merged into master with out their own branch so its hard to keep track of what was actually in the old kernel, im trying to keep things organized better on the new repo, 1 patch/feature per branch

Nice! I know the patch was finally submitted for review, but not that it has been merged already.

dodo/rmh, thanks for cleaning it up, are things like the genetic, fingerprinting, and some of the low-latency stuff in there currently. Or will they make it in? It seems like you are making this version less of a patch dumping ground.

COnsider this a formal request for the thinkpad/HDAPS patch.

Thanks again,
M

I want to bring back genetics at some point but in the last few kernel versions there have been a lot of changes and the old patches dont apply well, I will have to take some time this summer to forward port them, with respect to the HDAPS support, I think the recent changes in the kernel relating to BKL might affect the HDAPS patch so I was waiting to see if a new version of the patch came out first

I got a 2.6.26-rc2-zen1-dirty when I pulled and I didn't see anything different. Still missing the blk_freeze patch. But I see you put the Custom Flags back in. I never did you them. Any hints?

squashfs is included. I'm not including squashfs-lzma because the patches are icky, not maintainable, and awkward; there's no crypto/lzma.c, and the squashfs modifications include new modules for the express purpose of loading unlzma.ko into squashfs.ko. Perhaps if somebody wrote a kernel-style lzma encoder/decoder, offered it as a crypto service like lzo or deflate, and modded squashfs to just drop in lzma when needed as the new codec, it would be acceptable.

Yeah, I know I could do it, but I have more important stuff on my plate right now. Maybe after we get R500 stuff stable.
