Silly me - I must have overlooked this change when I checked that line earlier:

Code:
--- a/.git/config 2010-03-13 16:45:46.000000000 +0100
+++ b/.git/config    2010-03-13 16:36:46.000000000 +0100
@@ -5,7 +5,7 @@
        logallrefupdates = true
 [remote "origin"]
        fetch = +refs/heads/*:refs/remotes/origin/*
-       url = git://git.zen-kernel.org/kernel/zen-stable.git
+       url = git://zen-kernel.org/kernel/zen-stable.git
 [branch "master"]
        remote = origin
        merge = refs/heads/master


Apply this patch and it will work again.

slax-remix-v05 released 5 days ago, more than 100 downloads, no kernel related issues so far :)

Big thanks for great job!

Just a question, why is there no mention about the zen kernel on Wikipedia or any other "official" kernel page?
Even Linus mentioned the zen sources in one speech, AFAIR, in form of they do it their way and we do it like this.

I've just compiled the 2.6.33 kernel, rebooted without any problem, but video/graphic is very slow.
I have an ATI radeon card.
With zenkernel 2.6.32 it worked good.
Did i mis something?

Works fine here:
2.6.33-zen1 with AMD firmware x11-drivers/radeon-ucode-20091209
x11-drivers/xf86-video-ati-6.12.191 (prerelease of 6.13) - 6.12.5 didn't work for me anymore...
x11-base/xorg-server-1.7.5

We're not official at all, not supported or endorsed by linux officially.
As far as wikipedia, someone could ack that, apparently no one cares enough too 8)

I'd be interested to read that, i haven't heard of anything like that.

Are you using drm or a blob or what? If you're using drm you need to specify external firmware for some ATI so make sure you do that! (not required in 2.6.32 or below, afaik)

I'm having troubles with .33-zen1

I havn't tried with vanilla .33 sources.

1: lockup while booting: "No compatible bridge window to <mem .." : "solved" by using pci=use_crs .

2: X starting, mouse showing and moving, sound working, but the screen apart from mouse cursor still white. There is also no reaction to power button. I'm using KDE 4 and compiz fusion. I can't see any errors in Xorg.0.log

(I think there is still work in progress, but hope it helps) panic at boot with latest git pull, pre-merge of 2.6.33.1 was ok. :)

That was in the kernel summit, where Linus said the kernel becomes bloated. If you watch the whole video at some stage someone asks him about zen-sources, I cannot find a transcript :(

You wouldn't be using btrfs would you?
Besides that, the only updates were tuxonice and 2.6.33.1

That trace isnt very useful either, maybe build with frame pointers if you aren't already doing that :D (i want everybody to build w/ frame pointers)

Hi, everyone. I have been browsing through this thread some this evening, and I would like to say that I have heard so many good things about the zen kernel that I decided to emerge it and see if I could get one to boot. I've compiled and am ready to try and boot this kernel. I just would like to thank everyone here for the hard work that obviously goes into kernel development. I would also like to thank pappy for all of his hard work! All I can say there is: wow!! The seeds he provides help us out so much.

The funny thing is that I have been using Gentoo for about five years. I have been very happy with it, but it seems like it was always missing something. It wasn't until I needed to build a new box a couple of months ago that I did a lot of studying on kernels, hardware, and kernel compilation. It was at that time that I learned of Pappy and his kernel seeds, and the zen kernel.

I saw Pappy give some advice in this thread that made more sense than anything I have seen. Build your kernel, get it to boot, then tweak it until you break it, and then take away the bit that broke it. I never had the opportunity to unleash the full power of Gentoo before my new machine. Before I would just use genkernel, and limp along. I don't mean any disrespect to the devs of genkernel, but after a deep evaluation of genkernel, I have found that the more control I have over kernel options, etc, the less aggravation I am going to have and the more control I am going to have over my machine.

Well, i have rambled on in this little post. I just wanted to thank everyone here who comes to these forums and offer help to those of us that so often need it (like me) and I look forward to getting this kernel to work!

Breaking things is the only way to know the limits of the things you are breaking. Fortunately, I have yet to so completely break a computer I couldn't get it back with work. That's a good thing indeed.

Cheers,
Pappy

HOORAY!! I got my zen to boot the first time!! I only have a few minor things to deal with (I forgot to re-emerge sys-fs/fuse, things of that nature).


I already need a little help, though. I had a few other errors that I saw as the kernel was booting, but things sped by so fast that I could not see them all, is there a way to cat the errors that occur during boot so you can tweak the settings to satisfy them? I know this is probably a stupid question, but I am still fairly new to the "roll your own" kernel world!

I would like to once again thank Pappy for the work he does. I was having a little trouble with hard disk naming in the gentoo kernel. My Windows drive is "sdb" but with the previous kernel, it was being seen as "hdc" and that problem has now been resolved!! I'm sure it was some deep kernel setting that I never found, but I am well pleased that it is correct now!!

Now my job is to first find my errors, correct them and do some serious tweaking until I get the full potential of this kernel! I haven't been this excited about my computer in a long time!!

Thanks

Todd

All the errors should show up in dmesg. Which is the file /var/log/messages
I'm not sure how you would grep the errors, but you can look through it.

To make it a little easier, you could delete or backup the old /var/log/messages and then reboot. That'll give you a clean file and everything in it will be relevant.

strangely (for me), after enabling kernel debug and pointers, no more panic :o

my config (if useful, but for me it's ok like this :) )

Hi guys

I'm installing gentoo on my new laptop (dv7-3180ef, with a i7 720QM \o/). I would like to know, if you guys have any advice regarding any option in zen-kernel that I should enable for better use of i7.

Thanks in advance!

don't forget to set the correct number of your cores or HT threads :P


when starting I only had 4 so it would only use half of its potential :wink: (for an core i7 860)

Didn't see that post. The docs on the website have the wrong url's too in case you get a chance to fix them ;)
