can i make a few suggestions for inclusion in zen ?

- adbsyn patch - synaptic features for non-synaptic-capable adb hardware ( intended for older macs like my powerbook).
- bzip2/lzma kernel compression

cheers

tried latest pull, not yet rebooted (compiling new kde 4.2 :) )
Code:
$ make CONFIG_DEBUG_SECTION_MISMATCH=y
...
MODPOST vmlinux.o
WARNING: vmlinux.o(.cpuinit.data+0x0): Section mismatch in reference from the variable initial_code to the function .init.text:i386_start_kernel()
The variable __cpuinitdata initial_code references
a function __init i386_start_kernel().
If i386_start_kernel is only used by initial_code then
annotate i386_start_kernel with a matching annotation.

don't even know what that means :lol: maybe it useful for you :)

btw tnx also from me for including compressions :D
this will help developing also squashfs-lzma, and I like it cause I hack a lot with slax.

nvidia-drivers freaking out didn't happen with rc2-zen1;


Depending on where and how the kernel sources (or the
kernel headers) were installed, you may need to specify
their location with the SYSSRC environment variable or
the equivalent nvidia-installer command line option.

I don't maintain the nvidia driver, so there is nothing i can do.

It needs to be reported to nvidia forums or something so a fix can be found.

We decided to do master-2.6.xy branches, so now we have master-2.6.28. so for the latest zen 2.6.28 you would check that out.

Also, 2.6.28-zen7 and 2.6.29-rc2-zen2 are dun

it is related to zen.
I do not have problems with the latest vanilla 2.6.29-rc3 and nvidia driver installation.
so some changes to zen are causing the problem. Because some users do not have this issue, I believe that some got "infected" :) during one of the pulls which now may not be really fixable.
I am going to try new pull see if this will help

My wireless drivers (rt61pci) weren't working after upgrade from 2.6.27-zen3 to 2.6.29-rc2-zen1 (installed with portage)
After some googling, I found the solution.
Can you include that patch?

I created an issue at zen-sources.org

I think it should be included upstream (lkml).

I have to agree that there are really no big changes in .29, seemed like the Biggies happened in .28. That being said:
Code:
cosmo2 ~ # uname -a
Linux cosmo2 2.6.29-rc3-zen1 #34 SMP PREEMPT Fri Jan 30 07:45:14 EST 2009 x86_64 Intel(R) Core(TM)2 Duo CPU T9400 @ 2.53GHz GenuineIntel GNU/Linux


Compiles and runs nicely. Thanks guys.

one thing added i noted is under "kernel hacking"
Code:
[ ] Compile the kernel with frame pointers

in my speed-freak paranoia obviously I omitted the frigging pointers :lol: (ready to enable again for debugging :wink: )

Hi,
Actually, even if I am not a Gentoo user, I experienced the same problem under Ubuntu Intrepid with the nvidia drivers. I don't know if it can help you, but it also concerns the version 96.43.09 provided with Intrepid. I'm still using .28 (2.6.28-zen7), not .29. It worked fine with 2.6.28-zen5.
(sorry for my bad english)

Strange, I can not find LZF compression in 2.6.28-zen7. I am pretty sure it was there back in 2.6.27-zen2 or something.
I presume if LZF is not in the kernel there should be some problem with it. Can someone shed some light about this, please?

Thanks.

well i think lzf compression gets added by ToI.... there was lzma compression for squashfs but that was a big hack and ugly code, i dont think we have applied the new lzma patches yet since nothing uses them, when someone add proper lzma support to squashfs then you will see lzma in the kernel again

Yes, exactly. LZF is a part of TOI, but there is no CONFIG_CRYPTO_LZF option in v2.6.28-zen7. On the other hand I have just found out that CONFIG_CRYPTO_LZF is available in v2.6.28-zen6.

git diff v2.6.28-zen6 v2.6.28-zen7 > ../v2.6.28-zen6-7.patch

The content of the patch file clearly shows the lack of LZF in the zen7 compared to zen6.
It is not a big issue actually. I just wanted to try it out and could not find it.
