Regarding labels, I am bringing up 2 systems, each with a 5-bay hot swap sata backplane. The idea is to use 3 drives for a raid, 1 to boot from, and 1 as a scratch/temp/work drive slot. All drives will have the ability to support lvm and crypto. I have wanted to look into labels so I would not have to be careful about slot renaming due to random pulling and insertion order. I could always use /dev/disk/by-path/* to identify a particular slot in the backplane, but labels seem so much cleaner. Obviously, I still have to worry about which slot before I pull a drive out, but the computer can tell me which slot to pull after it has made the drive quiescent. I am running mostly xfs, but some ext2/3 and some old reiserfs (not 4). Do all these formats support labels?

Thanks! :D

Don't know if it'll help you but on one system with a SAN, which provides several LUN for virtualization, I've created a directory tree, e.g. under /vm/volumes/. I've created a subdirectory for each disk UUID and a symlink using each filesystem's volume name to point to the directory with the disk's UUID. In fstab I mount filesystems with their UUID rather than their label.

Otherwise, yes, each of these filesystems supports labels. At least ext2/3, which I'm sure. XFS should. At least I see no reason it wouldn't.

I've just uploaded the .configs for 2.6.27.28, 2.6.30.3, 2.6.30-gentoo-r3, and 2.6.30-gentoo-r4 in both x86 and x86_64 flavors. Enjoy!

Blessed be!

When it rains, it pours tuxonice sources. I have just uploaded the .configs for 2.6.29-tuxonice-r4 and 2.6.30-tuxonice-r4 in both x86 and x86_64 flavors. Enjoy!

Also, with my seemingly unstoppable agricultural prowess, at least on Facebook, there is a fresh crop of settings being planted as I type. As soon as those flowers bloom, I'll post that here.

Blessed be!
Pappy

Just dropping by to spam with a kind word - the seeds rock, thanks for your efforts and keep up the good work!

Once I've rid myself of this headache, and have the time, I'm going to throw up a page documenting specific pre-fab machines I've gotten to work, as well the .config I used. Expect a plug :)

Hi Pappy,

Our friend needs some help https://forums.gentoo.org/viewtopic-p-5905577.html#5905577

I'm wondering if you could squeeze him in?

Before it hits the tree, the .configs are already uploaded. Once again, I've beaten portage and have my seeds ready before portage has the source. I love that...I don't know why, but I do.

I digress...

The .configs for 2.6.27.29 and 2.6.30.4 have just been uploaded in both x86 and x86_64 flavors. Enjoy!

BB!

bought a new lappy yesterday, built from the 2.6.30-r4 seed (gentoo-sources, amd64)
acer aspire 4736z (cheapo lappy for testing ath9k driver)
no issues, works brilliantly, booted the first time**, all hardware working
lean, quick, in a mere half dozen tick boxes. Posting on it as we speak!

**(well, i screwed up the first boot - left notail on ext4, as id copied over fstab from a system with / on reiser! Didnt take but two secs to find, fixed that [removed the bogus mount opt] and it booted, not the kernel's fault though!)

Another happy piece of hardware, courtesy of pappy's seeds

EDIT:

I did finally get around to starting doc for the hardware I'm using the seed kernels on
http://whitehathouston.com/hardware
Lack a home-built, and the D610.

Thanks pappy. I just got a new system and used your 2.6.30-gentoo-r4 seed.

A couple things, I noticed it was general in what was selected, so since you had the intel device drivers selected. My board is an Intel P45 based (828801JI), it uses a JMicrron pata/AHCI controller. You might want to make that one pre-selected as well.

I de-selected a few that weren't needed and it worked first try. :)

Thanks for the seeds pappy!
I've used one to recompile my kernel (2.6.29-gentoo-r5). I'm now at the 26th recompile ;)
I still have an Alsa issue, but that's not related to the kernel (support for my device is only in alsa development builds so I can't use the kernel's alsa).
I did a diff between my current config and yours and it has provided me with a much better one :)
Things I've learned after booting the new kernel:
-Nvidia-drivers does NOT like framebuffer support
-Nvidia-drivers NEEDS hot-pluggable CPU (for some reason...)

System seems a bit more responsive but I'm not completely sure yet.

Again, THANKS!

The intel driver selected is a mistake, actually. I've been meaning to correct that, but since I've gotten side-tracked with other issues, I haven't had a chance to redo the settings yet. I will be doing so soon, like before my birthday, so keep an eye out for the announcement.

Blessed be!

Actually, if you set for the VESA VGA *not uvesa* framebuffer, it works like a charm. Never set the nvidia framebuffer. That is only if you have to use xf86-video-nv. No one uses that...well, only those with dinosaur nvidia cards.

I have two machines running with nvidia cards, and they are both set for no hot-swappable anything. Which card are you using?

You're most welcome. I'm glad that my seeds have you up and running. It is sweet music to my ears...err, eyes. hehehe

So, I don't upgrade my kernel very often... but where did the iwl4965 module go in the new kernel? Is there a replacement?
Code:
$ grep -i iwl /usr/src/linux-2.6.24-gentoo-r8/.config

CONFIG_IWLWIFI=y
# CONFIG_IWLWIFI_DEBUG is not set
CONFIG_IWLWIFI_SENSITIVITY=y
CONFIG_IWLWIFI_SPECTRUM_MEASUREMENT=y
CONFIG_IWLWIFI_QOS=y
CONFIG_IWL4965=m
CONFIG_IWL3945=m

Code:
$ grep -i iwl /usr/src/linux-2.6.30-gentoo-r4/.config

CONFIG_IWLWIFI=m
# CONFIG_IWLWIFI_LEDS is not set
# CONFIG_IWLWIFI_RFKILL is not set
CONFIG_IWLWIFI_SPECTRUM_MEASUREMENT=y
# CONFIG_IWLWIFI_DEBUG is not set
# CONFIG_IWLAGN is not set

Hmm... Why'd they stick it under:
Code:
<M>     Intel Wireless WiFi Next Gen AGN (iwlagn)
[*]       Intel Wireless WiFi 4965AGN
[ ]       Intel Wireless WiFi 5000AGN; Intel WiFi Link 1000, 6000│


I didn't think to look under that. Thanks

Hi Pappy,

Is there one of your "shut up" settings to quiet those LVM boot/shutdown CDROM errors?

I know they can safely be ignored, but it would be nice if they would indeed shut up - if it's even possible.

Thanks. :)

I don't have anything set up with LVM, so I don't know the error of which you speak. I believe I've set up at least one LVM user. If this is the case, can that user please answer this question.

Blessed be!
Pappy

Found it. Not a kernel issue but an lvm config issue.

Edit /etc/lvm/lvm.conf

Adding a filter to reject the cdrom device before the accept all filter stops lvm from trying to open/close the cdrom, resulting in no more noise.
Code:
# By default we accept every block device:
    # Gentoo: we exclude /dev/nbd by default, because it makes a lot of kernel
    # noise when you probed while not available.
    filter = [ "r|/dev/nbd.*|", "r|/dev/cdrom|", "a/.*/" ]


All is well. :)

Awesome. I think for this issue, you ought to make a thread so it gets to a wider audience, or folks who don't visit this thread.

Blessed be!

I knew that LVM fix to not probe a certain device was in there somewhere. I looked for it for a few minutes, but could not find it quickly, so I had to get back to work. I was looking during a build...

Anyway, glad you found it! :D

BTW Does anybody here know anything about openvpn? I have a big problem since my last update. :cry:
see https://forums.gentoo.org/viewtopic-t-787648-highlight-.html

Thanks!
