OK, so I have decided on the .31, and I will work out the append= later. Right now, I just want to ge the bugger to boot, then get wifi working. This is a throw-away installation anyway...

I've emerged the kernel, now to configure it.

The current default x_64 gentoo-sources kernel is 2.6.31-gentoo-r6, but the seeds go from r5 to r7 with no r6. :x

Is there a reason for this? :?

I just synced and checked. 2.6.31-gentoo-r6 is available.

Blessed be!

Yes, I see it now. Thanks Pappy! I have been so busy with relatives and their kids and all the general chaos and confusion that goes with it that I haven't even looked until just now. I won't get a chance to work on it until tomorrow night, as the crowd is still around thru tomorrow afternoon. I'm not complaining, as we are having a great time, but my computer has been busier running Barney the Dinosaur than any of its more usual fare the past few days. :roll:

No...not the purple mind-control monster! EEEEK.

No problem. It was on the failover, but somehow didn't make it to the standard site.

Actually, according to my almost 3 yaer old great nephew, you pronounced it all wrong. It's pronounced "RAHORRR" and must be as loud as you can make it, and with you arms and hands raised in the position that Tyranosourus Rex is typically pictured holding his diminuative forelegs. You must also frown and show as many of your teeth as possible. The idea is to ellicit a response from a nearby uncle, aunt, orolder cousin, and eventually end up wrestling them to the ground on the living room carpet.

If anyone looks at the date, and the day I joined the forums, you will note that was exactly two years ago.

Happy Anniversary to me!

I am back on the AMD quad-core with the flakey ethernet today. I want to fix the ethernet dropout problem, and to see if I can use genkernel again to make an initrd that will support LVM on the root filesystem. Once I know the genkernel thing is working, I will be back on the laptop that needs LVM and LUKS on the root filesystem. Busy busy busy... :?

The advantage of working on the quad-core is it builds faster. :wink:

I knew I was an overachiever, but I didn't know I was that overachiever-ish. I imagine my novel would be done by now if all that were devoted to it. hehehehe.

Blessed be!

Hey pappy,

Thanks for your good work with these kernel seeds!

I was wondering though, do you have a seed for 2.6.32-zen3? On your site, I only see up to zen2. I really like the zen-sources and as my kernel is rather bloated now, I want to compile a kernel "from seed."

No, but I will in a few. I've been busy with holiday stuff. I haven't taken the time to set that one up yet.

Blessed be!

NeddySeagoon, thanks. It's been fun. Here's to a really wonderful year three!

Everyone, I've just posted the .configs for 2.6.32-gentoo-r1, and 2.6.32-zen3 in both x86 and x86_64 flavors. Enjoy! Also, I will be putting up a donation page later on this evening.

Blessed be!
Pappy

Oh wow! You're fast! Thanks a lot! Don't forget that donation link... I really appreciate the work that you've done and I'd be glad to give you a donation when I can afford to.

You mention some things (like network cards) that need to be installed as modules, but you did not mention anything about setting the modules to load automatically at boot. I think that unless I'm mistaken module loading has changed in baselayout-2. So, if it has... does anyone know how I can get modules to automatically load at boot?

Well, I have built a fresh system from Pappy's seed for gentoo-sources 6.31-r6 for my amd quad-core that ahd been exhibiting a flakey ethernet nic drop-out with an slightly older kernel. That kernel was not built from a seed. We shall see how this one behaves over time. I will need to see several weeks without a drop-out for me to believe it is really cured.

Once I feel I have an ethernet driver I can trust, I will be rebuilding this box with LVM on the root filesystem. Until then, I will just monitor its general behavior, especially the eth0 NIC.

Automatic module loading is hardwired into the kernel. It was selectable until the end of the .26 family. From .27 on, you cannot choose to autoload modules. If you turn on module support, all modules will autoload, unless prevented from doing so by being blacklisted.

As far as module loading in baselayout-2, I notice no difference in the way modules load. They load when needed, and that's that. How things react after their modules load, well, that's a different story altogether. If you don't take the time to set up baselayout-2 properly, it can and will bite you in the ass.

What specifically is failing?

BB!

For modules like vboxdrv you may use /etc/conf.d/modules. Everything is in the examples.

I mentioned some issues with zen-sources in zen-sources thread , but config is based on Pappy's seeds so... I got hangs while very high disk usage: e.g. extracting huge archives or installing app from cd image. Data is on XFS partition, root on R4. I'm using zen-kernel 2.6.32_p3 on Thinkpad T61p, my config http://pastebin.com/d2d8ca2f5. I'm new to kernel debugging, is there a way to check what caused the hang? Only thing I can do is hard reset. Enabling NMI watchdog can help? I disabled it because of VirtualBox...

methinks he's talking about the modules.autoload.d bits - which should have been migrated for you automatically as part of the migration assuming you did the usual openrc/bl-2 bit

if so, they're in /etc/conf.d/modules

example - mine

Code:

modules_2_6="${modules_2_6} i2c-i801"
module_i2c_i801_args_2_6=""
modules_2_6="${modules_2_6} ath9k"
module_ath9k_args_2_6=""


Now having said that, I am in agreement - more and more I've found things just seem to load themselves without my needing to add them to be autoloaded at boot.


EDIT: drat, one minute too slow!

I have never experienced module loading issues. I have, however, experienced issues with baselayout2/openrc, especially in the early days. Wireless networking would crap out repeatedly and regularly. It was a running hot topic in openrc discussion threads for a bit of time. Fixes came quickly, but my own confidence in the setup was still not there.

Now that the new network scripting has been added, I've added baselayout-2/openrc to yet another machine. Since that has happened, I have had no issues with either machine. My confidence is growing. When I get around to setting my networking script up for baselayout-2/openrc, then I'll put it on this machine.

On another topic, for those who have asked where the donations page is, and those who haven't, but still wouldn't mind donating to the kernel seed cause, I have added a donations page. It uses PayPal. If that's not your speed, and you would still like to donate, send me a private message at the forums, or email me at pappy_mcfae@yahoo.com for snail-mail information.

Blessed be!
Pappy

Happy anniversary (plus a day) Pappy!

Funny enough after years of rolling my own I just happened to try using a seed yesterday. I decided to try to the zen-sources-2.6.30_p11 as per your previous suggestions. I've been mostly using gentoo-sources (after some early "experimentation") . My current kernel is 2.6.30-gentoo-r5. I used the 2.6.30-zen11-x86_64-07.config seed to go with the zen-sources-2.6.30_p11 sources.

The biggest snag I've run into is that my keyboard does not function after I boot (into console mode) so there is not much I can do except hit the big red switch. I'm using a pretty vanilla Logitech wireless usb keyboard & mouse.

I also noticed that many of the modules needed for my firewall to work were missing but maybe this was due to the change from Gentoo to Zen.

I also noticed that "Tickless System (Dynamic Ticks)" NO_HZ was not selected by default even though you said in another thread that you always select this option for your seeds and you recommend it. If this was not pilot error on my part I was wondering if you still recommend going tickless?

I'm using an athlon x2 processor and amd_64 profile. Here is my lspci -n:
