2.6.32-zen6 works fine for me.
i have tried 2.6.33-rc5-zen1 and 2.6.33-rc7-zen1 but i cannot compile
nvidia-drivers on these versions. anyone else tried?

Here, I unmasked nvidia-drivers-195.36.03 and it compiled fine with 2.6.33-rc7-zen1.


worked. thanks!

just wondering if a zen version of 2.6.32.9 is coming (it appears
to have quite a few i915 changes, hopefully improvements)?

Yeah, it's just that i've (probably all of us, but im not sure) have been extremely busy. I've barely had time to get on the computer for any extended period of time.

Come tomorrow or so i'll be able to get everything updated and have a new release available for 2.6.32

Upgrading to 2.6.33 was the biggest improvement in a long time, maybe they backported some of that stuff, but it ought to be just bugfixes then.

using current unstable zen I get
Code:
symbol value 'X86_L1_CACHE_BYTES' invalid for X86_INTERNODE_CACHE_BYTES

directly after entering make ("make oldconfig" executed before).

don't know if this causes any problems. at least the build starts without any problems.

I am successfully tempted, especially to see how i915 performs now.

/me adds -stable

Can always revert if it causes problems.

Working on 2.6.33 rebase, it'll be a big one.

Also have a little something extra i'm working on that will be backported to 2.6.32 and 2.6.31 as well.

thanks

I couldn't wait, and applied the 314 bfs patch to 2.6.33 final. Worked fine, with no problems. :)

I just renamed the patch, and did a find/replace 2.6.33 for all instances of 2.6.33-rc8 in the patch itself.

Then I saw that Con is out with his ck patch again- glad to see that- I had used them from the beginning and was disappointed when he quit them a while back.
Will try ck soon.

hrmm...so zen.git was solid for a while, but croaked on me twice, so moved back to zen-stable.git

I doubt this one was specific to zen.git, however I couldn't rmmod ath9k once it hit - somewhat troubling.
The other a hard lockup during a reasonably large scp, one that left me with zero useful information to offer (and therefore, honestly, my post in here is probably completely useless). This lockup didnt even leave me with the usual blinking/pulsing HDD activity light, just a wholly unresponsive system.

When it was running, it was running brilliantly. Just reporting it's not been totally smooth sailing really - I will try again with the next release and see how I go :)

The config is here if anyone is curious. Again, probably totally meaningless at this stage, and my post is therefore probably totally meaningless...but hey, i guess count this one as "mostly works"

I had some strangeness with my latest machine and 2.6.33...at least that's what I think/hope it was. While I have other hard drives sitting around collecting dust, the drive in that machine is 120 gigs. I'd hate to give up that much real estate, even if I'll never fill the drive. >:(

I'm reemerging the system, then I'm going to reemerge the world again. Boy howdy, I hope that fixes things. I'm redoing everything with 2.6.31-zen-12. If things crash with that kernel version, I know it's a hardware issue. If not, I just found a new and exciting reiserfs regression. Woohoo!

Cheers,
Pappy

Checking out 2.6.33-zen1 on the zen-stable.git. And the only I/O schedulers present are Deadline, CFQ and Simple. What happened to BFQ and the others?

BFQ is history - for now ;)

I think dodo or cheater wrote that waninkoko is currently working on a port to 2.6.33 for it or at least it's hard to maintain since it doesn't contain recent changes made to upstream and will be left out for now

Deadline it is for now then.

And can anybody tell me what this warning means.

Code:

include/config/auto.conf:345:warning: symbol value 'X86_L1_CACHE_BYTES' invalid for X86_INTERNODE_CACHE_BYTES

Zen has included all of the -ck patches since 2.6.32, not just BFS.

There is newer bfq that is being worked and and currently being tested by the new bfq maintainer, it will be posted on the zen Ml when it's finished - then we can work on 2.6.33 port.
anticipatory wasn't implemented too, for whatever reason - between cfq/deadline/no-op nearly every situation is satisfied, it just so happens that with bfq some situations are satisfied better :D

Deadline is not a viable replacement for bfq since it's totally different, cfq is a good consideration ;) the io-controller in 2.6.33 uses ideas from bfq anyway in it's implementation.

Also i know of the rcu problems, i've been working on the classic rcu port for awhile now (there were a lot of problems with the zen.git one, i've been fixing) - i think it's all fixed now.

sorry to reply to myself but commenting out the
offending line in internal.h appears to solve this
problem and permits continued compilation

needless to say, I am uncomfortable sticking my hand
into the machine like this :)

but hold it - I later get the message that the file
logo_skunk_clut224.ppm is not a PNM file - and sure
enough it has 0 file size. copying a random ppm file
into the skunk file lets compilation continue

and it boots!

I see this thing is held together with baling wire :?

Incorrect fixes on both cases :P, both of your problems and more are fixed in git
