Hi folks.

Can somebody explain why below patch is still ( since how many years now ;) ) needed to get the fglrx compiled?

For the Ubuntu folks around here. Once above patch is applied, fglrx will be
automatically installed during boot by the dkms autoinstaller. It's never been better :D

mm-patches was reverted and then the kernel was updated to 2.6.27.7

Hi folks.

When are you planning to upgrade ALSA from rc3 to 1.0.18a?

I pushed 2.6.28-rc6-zen1 with updated reiser4 to our old git repo at repo.or.cz if anyone's interested ( the url is git://repo.or.cz/linux-2.6/zen-sources.git )

Thank you so VERY MUCH dodo! YMMD!

I had some weird problem with rc1-3 that modules were build but not installed. I could "solve" the problem by integrating everything I need into the kernel, but I was desperately waiting for an update, alas the server went offline. But your rc6 did the trick!

Its still needed because fglrx is non-gpl... you should be supporting one of the two opensource alternatives instead of the closed sources pos.

It shouldn't be to difficult to fix something like that. ;)

OFF TOPIC:

"supporting opensource"

I am supporting Opensource - believe me. I am actively pushing for Linux in the audio-community.

I honor your idealistic view on - "everything needs to be opensource".

But - That will never happen - at least at a quality level people are used to on other OSs.
It needs manufactures to get involved, otherwise it'll never work in a real competitive manner.

I am more a pragmatic guy ( AS MANY OTHER PEOPLE) . I take what's working best - I'don't care if it is closed
or open unless its free and working .

How many people using opensource only, especially in the graphics and audio area? Not very many. Guess why?
Why do I still have a dual-boot machine - Guess why?

To get away from this closed Linux community thing, people have to open up their minds. I strongly believe
if there would be more and better support from the manufactures in the driver area, because they could keep their
stuff closed, Linux would see a heavy increase on users. It for sure has the basis. The acceptance would be much
higher than today.

Look at the audio area. The "open" drivers usually come with limited functional support.
If they are available at all, they come very late. No it can't work like that! What's gonna happen with DRM
and the new HDMI cards. Linux will most probably have a hard time to get on top of that if it stays
opensource only.
I could continue with Blue-ray etc. But I leave it.

In the end the Linux "Management" has to decide what they are heading for.

1. opensource & rather limited acceptance
2. mixedsource & wide acceptence

If they intend to make Linux more successful and want it more widely spread, I see just one option - Nr. 2. ;)

An OS is just a system to manage applications and peripherals. If either one - applications or peripherals - comes with
limited/restricted support compared to others, people won't accept it.

Sorry for being off-topic - you asked for it.

Cheers

Hmmh. What a pity IMO especially the ALSA part is extremely important to be up2date.
Wasn't that different some time ago?

Patch applied and pushed to the temp git repo :P

Also, for those of you who have zen-sources cloned, you could do this to save yourself from cloning the old repo:

git remote add oldzen git://repo.or.cz/linux-2.6/zen-sources.git
git fetch oldzen
git checkout -b oldmaster oldzen/master

And compile :)

Thanks very much for 2.6.28-rc6-zen1. It is working flawlessly with fglrx *11*(although fglrx defaults to a 640x480 res - not zen's fault). Zen-Sources forever.

Hi.

1. Is there at least some documentation about the ZEN tuneables?
2. Is there a way to find out about some kind of final/stable zen-releases (e.g. the last and final on 2.6.27 kernel)

THX


Coming back to above issues. Is there an answer?

My intention with above is to get these subjects described to put them up in the net to make it available to a wider
community.
Without making documentation available you could question the whole ZEN-tunable parameters.
It remains something for a small number of super-gurus around here.

Perhaps somebody can shed some light what benchmark tools you use, to prove that something is happening when using this
or that configuration

Who is actually the guy in charge, I could talk to?

THX.

no docs on zen-tune, maybe when the website is back up we can add something

Is the git still down ?

Do we have to worry about the ZEN future? :? I mean - it's quite a long time by now.

lots of those in dmesg.. and I even got an oops when compiling the kernel. I had to build on a ext3 partition. After compiling I was able to move the tree back on the reiser4 partition without errors.
I'm not sue if my filesystem is b0rked a bit, or if the patch is buggy.

Hi there.

I have a weired problem. Probably somebody can get me hint.
I am wondering if this can have something to do with the 2.6.28 kernel.

Putting my T60P with FN F4 works just randomly under Gnome.
In the same manner the options hibernate or resume appear or don't appear
in the Gnome shutdown menu.

Runnnig an "echo mem > /sys/power/state" works flawless.

Any ideas. Where should I start looking?
