keenblade,

I took a look, and there were some issues. I'm going to take another look tomorrow, as I'm a bit tired, and I'd rather save it for tomorrow than to send you something with more issues than you have now.

Cheers,
Pappy

Pappy, thanks. I can wait, don't tire yourself out much. The only issue I have, it does not hibernate. But I guess, this a kernel problem not much a .config problem. It suspends fine, btw.

keenblade,

I took a look, and did some updating, and fixing. A few things to note: don't install devices that don't exist on your machine. For instance, you have only an AHCI SATA interface. No need for the intel driver, since it's not declared in lspci -n. You don't have an Atheros wireless adapter, you have a broadcom with drivers stuck in the staging driver section. You might also need firmware to make it work. You can find that here. If you were going for the broadcom-sta, then you were ok, although I personally use the intel wireless adapters to get WIRELESS-EXT. The in-kernel driver is set for this device, so if you decide to go with broadcom-sta, disable the in-kernel driver.

Click here for your new .config. Compile as is.

For the best results, please do the following:

1) Move your .config file out of your kernel source directory (/usr/src/linux-2.6.38-gentoo-r5 ).
2) Issue the command make mrproper. This is a destructive step. It returns the source to pristine condition. Unmoved .config files will be deleted!
3) Copy my .config into your source directory.
4) Issue the command make && make modules_install.
5) Install the kernel as you normally would, and reboot.
6) Once it boots, please post /var/log/dmesg so I can see how things loaded.

Cheers,
Pappy

Only one bit of kernel source in portage today. I've uploaded .configs for 2.6.37-gentoo-r5 in both x86 and x86_64 flavors. Enjoy!

Cheers,
Pappy

Here is the /var/log/dmesg
Here are the problems I see from dmesg:
    1) r600_cp: Failed to load firmware "radeon/CEDAR_pfp.bin"
    If radeon driver is built-in, like your config, firmware can't be loaded and hw acceleration fails.
    Code:

    ls -l /lib/firmware/radeon/CEDAR_pfp.bin
    -rw-r--r-- 1 root root 4480 May  8 20:56 /lib/firmware/radeon/CEDAR_pfp.bin

    If I set, this does not work too: CONFIG_EXTRA_FIRMWARE="radeon/CEDAR_pfp.bin"
    So, do I need another option in kernel?
    2) "ns_cgroup deprecated: consider using the 'clone_children' flag without the ns_cgroup."
    This is easy. I will remove CONFIG_CGROUP_NS.
    3) Some acpi related things:
    [Firmware Bug]: ACPI: No _BQC method, cannot determine initial brightness
    ACPI: Deprecated procfs I/F for battery is loaded, please retry with CONFIG_ACPI_PROCFS_POWER cleared
    ACPI: If an ACPI driver is available for this device, you should use it instead of the native driver
    4) No idea what this means:
    intel ips 0000:00:1f.6: CPU TDP doesn't match expected value (found 25, expected 29)

Thanks

I'd recommend looking up the error with Google. Since your machine is so new, its issues might be a little new as well.

Quote:

First and foremost, I do NOT recommend using any of the cgroup settings. That was one thing I was going to say to you, and thanks for reminding me. My experience with the cgroup settings is that they are unneeded for basic Linux operation.

None of those things are needed. I don't use them on my machines, and I don't recommend them to anyone. If you have a package, or are planning on using a package that requires those settings, then and only then should you turn any of them on.

On the above, refer to this URL: http://us.generation-nt.com/answer/intel-ips-cpu-tdp-doesnt-match-expected-value-help-200012501.html

According to what I read, it's nothing of any import.

Since you are showing a BIOS bug, I would have to put all those things off to it. Because of the curve of driver availability in Linux, you can rest assured that full support, including perhaps fixes that fix said bug, will be coming soon...but is probably not here now.

I had to deal with it when this machine was new. There were some things that weren't supported. Now, everything is supported, and I even have three choices of wireless drivers. Strangely, I still use ndiswrapper, the first wireless driver I got to work...but I digress.

On the good side of things, they just released 2.6.39, which may have some fixes already integrated for your system. If you wish to move up to that version and see if some fixes are integrated, just move the current .config to, assuming here, linux-2.6.39-gentoo, after you emerge it, and run make oldconfig. That will update your current .config to that latest version. Compile and see of some of the errors go away. They may not, but I'm betting you'll only have to wait six months or less for full support.

Well, I have to dash off to make new seeds for a new kernel family!

Cheers,
Pappy

Pappy, thanks for all the suggestions and time you spare for this. Without your seeds, I'd be lost in config.
Best wishes.

keenblade,

You're most welcome. I admit to being a bit out of practice with doing seeds for others. I've been working on my musical projects, which can become quite time demanding. However, I do still love to keep myself in practice. With new systems and new source coming out all the time, there is nothing as exciting as keeping up with the nearly bleeding edge of kernel source and its interaction with hardware systems.

Everyone,

Speaking of the bleeding edge for kernel source, the .39 family has gone out of release candidate status and into stable. It was about that time. In response to this wonder of computer science (Just kidding :lol: ), I have just uploaded .configs for 2.6.39 and 2.6.39-gentoo in both x86 and x86_64 flavors. Enjoy!

I have one machine running 2.6.39 already. So far, so good.

Cheers,
Pappy

Another day, another few sources. I just uploaded .configs for 2.6.32-hardened-r48 and 2.6.38-hardened-r5 in both x86 and x86_64 flavors. Enjoy!

Cheers,
Pappy

Hi.
As you can see, I am a n00b. ;)
I have working Gentoo installation, which amazes me. Yet, it was done the noob way - it is bloated and with unnecessary options. Lately, on the other half of my disk I am carefully polishing a perfect installation, taking time to study each option I don't understand. Moments ago I have finished my first conscious kernel configuration; thank you very much for your 13-page guide, Pappy.
During the process, I had changed my mind regarding the modules. I started by selecting each possible option as module, but after reading the paragraph about security risk of multiple modules, I decided to build monolithic kernel. So I had to recheck every branch of menuconfig. Could you check my resulting config, please? I suppose it is correct, not counting some overlooked modules, which should be in-kernel.
I want to note, that I deliberately disabled the frequency scaling. The Arch Wiki states, that the feature is broken on my CPU, and I believe them. Just in case you want to have a look at my hardware, I paste the info:
Code:
# cat /etc/make.conf
# These settings were set by the catalyst build script that automatically
# built this stage.
# Please consult /usr/share/portage/config/make.conf.example for a more
# detailed example.
CFLAGS="-march=native -mtune=native -O2 -pipe"
CXXFLAGS="${CFLAGS}"
# WARNING: Changing your CHOST is not something that should be done lightly.
# Please consult http://www.gentoo.org/doc/en/change-chost.xml before changing.
CHOST="x86_64-pc-linux-gnu"
# These are the USE flags that were used in addition to what is provided by the
# profile used for building.

Thanks for your work on the kernel configs they working quite good.
One think i missed is AUDITSYSCALL which is needed by sys-apps/consolekit if using pam or kernel_linux.
I know AUDITSYSCALL makes the kernel slower but ...
Well day from Vienna

AUDITSYSCALL is not necessary for proper basic Linux operation, which is why it's not turned on in the seeds.

For those that are using consolekit, it's a simple matter of turning that setting on for the package. And yes, the reason it's not in there is because it does slow things down. While, for reasons unknown, consolekit has found its way into my computers, I do not use it. Also, consolekit will finish compilation without the presence of AUDITSYSCALL. It will simply inform you to turn on that option in the kernel.

Cheers,
Pappy

Hirager,

I'll be checking your .config as soon as I'm done with my email check for the day.

Cheers,

It is a dependency of sys-auth/pambase and few other packages (http://gentoo-portage.com/Search?search=&use=consolekit). It seems to be enabled by default.

I figured as much. For me, it's no big deal, because absolutely no one else uses my computers, except for the folks who use the seeds site. I've gotten used to strange dependencies at this point. :)

Cheers,

Hirager,

Over all, I give you high marks on your setup. I changed only the things I saw that needed to be set as modules. ALSA, for instance, is really supposed to be set as modules, as are the CPU temp sensors. Other than that, things looked pretty good.

Click here for your new .config. Compile as is.

For the best results, please do the following:

1) Move your .config file out of your kernel source directory (/usr/src/linux-2.6.37-gentoo-r4).
2) Issue the command make mrproper. This is a destructive step. It returns the source to pristine condition. Unmoved .config files will be deleted!
3) Copy my .config into your source directory.
4) Issue the command make && make modules_install.
5) Install the kernel as you normally would, and reboot.
6) Once it boots, please post /var/log/dmesg so I can see how things loaded.

Cheers,
Pappy

Thank you. :)
The quality of my config reflects quality of your guide. This was my first seriously approached to kernel configuration.

That's the coolest thing! I've had guys who've been in the game for a while come up with a whole lot worse. I'm so glad that I am helpful, even when I remain in the background.

I'm having trouble finding the right prompt to configure my kernel for wifi. I am using Pappy's Seed 2.6.37-gentoo-r4-x86_64-08.config and the lspci -n output from the Debian page is:
Code:

80864237   Yes   Intel Corporation   PRO/Wireless 5100 AGN [Shiloh] Network Connection   iwlagn   v2.6.27-

When I am in the make menuconfig screen and use "/iwlagn", it returns:
Code:

This is a kernel update to the laptop I built from a seed over a year ago. It has been running:
Code:

Linux gehazi 2.6.31-gentoo-r6 #44 SMP PREEMPT Sun Feb 28 20:35:58 EST 2010 x86_64 Intel(R) Core(TM)2 Duo CPU T9400 @ 2.53GHz GenuineIntel GNU/Linux

all that time, but last February I had a problem doing a routine upgrade, and it clobbered my X while I was staying in a motel. I had to restore it from an image dated 01-15-2011. I am home for a while, so I wanted to get everything up to date. Updating the kernel on my laptop needs to be done before I update my X-driver.

Can anybody help me navigate to the correct place to set my wifi driver? :)

NEVER MIND :oops:

I think I tracked it down by following which flags were keeping it from getting set. This business of making things invisible can become annoying! :evil:

Moriah,

Yes, it can. One of the most annoying things about working with kernels is the seeming need to reorganize with every major family update (.37 to .38, etc.). Thankfully, they do provide the search. It makes finding some of those more hidden settings just a bit easier.

Everyone, lots and lots of seeds today. I've uploaded .configs for 2.6.32-gentoo-r30, 2.6.32-gentoo-r31, 2.6.32.41, 2.6.33.14, 2.6.37-tuxonice-r2, 2.6.38-gentoo-r6, and 2.6.38-tuxonice-r1 in both x86 and x86_64 flavors. Enjoy!

Cheers,
Pappy

Moriah,

If you have qt or gtx+ try make gconfig or make xconfig for your kernel setup.
You can set them to show all the hidden flags.

Pappy,

You might want to make devtmpfs part of your seeds. I ran into this problem, too.

Neddy: I have been able to work thru all the grief on my laptop easily now that I am home and can plug a cat5 cable into it and ssh into it from another box. I have built the 2.6.37-gentoo-r4 kernel with my fancy initramfs and fully encrypted SSD and lvm and booting from my usb boot stick so it works just like the old 2.6.31 kernel did from a year and a half ago. I upgraded to openrc and the new base layout. I am currently doing the final bit of updating with emerge --update --deep --newuse world, and its at 95 of 97 updates. After that, I will take care of any revdep-rebuilds that need to be done, any python-updater, etc. and reboot. I will post again after that is working.

Thanks for all your help trying to get me thru this when I was stuck on wifi in the motel room, but its so much easier this way. 8)

Audiodef,

I looked at the info, and turned it on to make sure nothing really bad happens. So far, so good, but I just rebooted, so we'll know in a day or so. If this system gets along with that setting, I'll definitely add it to the seeds. I want to change the timer frequency anyway.

Cheers,
Pappy

A new day, some new sources. I've just uploaded .configs for 2.6.32-hardened-r49 and 2.6.38-hardened-r6 in both x86 and x86_64 flavors. Enjoy!

Cheers,
Pappy
