Just because one posting of it here was good for a possible bit of work, I post my updated resume once again.

http://www.kernel-seeds.org/resume.html. If you know anyone who needs my services, don't hesitate to let me know.

Cheers,
Pappy

Kernel-dot-org remains out of action, but that never seems to stop the hardened-sources guys. I'm so happy that at least I get to work with those sources. I've just uploaded .configs for 2.6.32-hardened-r69 and 3.0.4-hardened-r4 in both x86 and x86_64 flavors. Enjoy!

Cheers,
Pappy

PS: Please come back soon, kernel-dot-org. I miss you!

My apologies for the up and down that the server has been doing here of late. I think I have the issue cured, but if there is anyone out there with a defunct Toshiba Satellite m35x s114 with a good AC power supply, and perhaps a gig of PC2700 RAM, I will gladly accept that as a donation.

The current cobbled together power supply is working, but it's not the proper supply for the unit. That has been the cause of the up and down issues. I have cobbled it a bit more, and that has definitely brought it back around. Still, I'd prefer to have the actual power supply for the unit. That makes things so much easier.

Cheers,
Pappy

EDIT: Check on the donation page for my email address if you wish to donate. I'll give you my snail mail address at that time. Thanks.

Still no kernel-dot-org, but the gentoo-sources folks didn't let that stop them. I've just uploaded .configs for 3.0.4-gentoo-r1 in both x86 and x86_64 flavors. Enjoy!

Cheers,
Pappy

I've just uploaded .configs for 3.0.4-gentoo-r2 in both x86 and x86_64 flavors. Enjoy!

Cheers,

Kernel-dot-org is back up, but no new sources from them yet. Even so, I have just uploaded .configs for 3.0.6 in both x86 and x86_64 flavors. Enjoy!

EDIT: At long last, I've also seriously updated the How to work with a Kernel Seed page as well. Stop by and check it out.

EDIT2: That was 3.0.6-gentoo. Somehow, I missed that part. My apologies.

Cheers,
Pappy

It's a rainy night in Texas, but a lovely time to set up some new seeds. I've just uploaded .configs for 2.6.32-hardened-r70 and 3.0.4-hardened-r05 in both x86 and x86_64 flavors. Enjoy!

Also, please note EDIT2 above. The actual seeds were 3.0.6-gentoo. My apologies. 3.0.6 vanilla isn't out, and it might be a while before it is. For more information on what's going on with kernel.org, please check out this link. Anyone visiting kernel.org will note that the links lead nowhere. The above URL is the reason why. Just keeping my users informed.

Oh, more hard rain coming down. Definitely a good night to stay in and play with your computers, Dallas.

Cheers,
Pappy

In what I can only call a lovely thing, the first bit of source has come from kernel.org. I couldn't be happier. I have just uploaded .configs for 3.0.6 in both x86 and x86_64 flavors. Enjoy!

Yes, this time, it is actually vanilla sources. No accidentally leaving off the -gentoo bit this time.

Cheers,
Pappy

Kernel-seeds.org is in transition again. The main site will be down today, as I am moving to a different place. I might have it back up later on this evening. Until then, as always, use the mirror sites.

Cheers,
Pappy

Wow. I forgot that was my last message here. The site has found another home, one where I can actually plug into the router instead of running via wireless. Now that I have all systems functioning as they should, seeds should flow as freely as the sources from which they arise. I've just uploaded .configs for 2.6.32-hardened-r71, 3.0.6-tuxonice, 3.0.7, 3.0.7-gentoo, 3.0.7-hardened, and 3.0.7-tuxonice in both x86 and x86_64 flavors. Enjoy!

Cheers,
Pappy

Another day, some more source, including some newly out of RC status. I've just uploaded .configs for 3.0.8, 3.1.0, and 3.1.0-gentoo in both x86 and x86_64 flavors. Enjoy!

Cheers,
Pappy

It's the night before Halloween, and the spirits of Hardened sources have struck again. I've just uploaded .configs for 2.6.32-hardened-r72, 2.6.32-hardened-r73, 3.0.7-hardened-r1, and 3.0.8-hardened in both x86 and x86_64 flavors. Enjoy!

Happy Halloween/Samhain to all!

Cheers,
Pappy

Hi Pappy,

First of all, a very STRONG thank for your kernel-seed : it was a great help for me to understand the zillion options available in Linux kernel and allowed me to build my own kernel.

Regarding Graphics Drivers, you said to disable KMS and to return back to VESA configuration for i915 controlers (which helped me a lot :D ) .
Gusar provided me a workaround in this topic and I got a solid as a rock X hires environment even using Intel's driver.

Bye

Laurent

1. I'm glad I could help.
2. I see I need to redo some things on the settings page, especially the part you referenced.

Cheers,
Pappy

My apologies for the down time on the main site. The internet gets flaky here when the weather does the same. I hope to have the issues cleared, but if they persist, don't hesitate to use the mirrors.

Cheers,
Pappy

I'll get to that. Sorry, had some internet issues. I'll take care of you as soon as I'm done with my emails.

Cheers, and sorry for the delay.

Posting new seeds before midnight. This is a rare occurrence. I've just uploaded .configs for 2.6.32.47 and linux-3.1.0-gentoo-r1 in both x86 and x86_64 flavors. Enjoy!

Cheers,
Pappy

there you go pappy, had to make a few adjustments as i use dm_crypt and some userspace applications to get a nice looking boot text when PC starts, don't be alarmed at the jump in time from 6 secs to about 21sec, that's probably where is it asking me for pass-phrase to unlock the drives :)

Other than that all went okay

Thanks

Thank you pappy_mcfae for you work! Yesterday I used your guide to optimize my new gentoo-3.1.1 kernel and the result is fantastic! :D
My system was never so responsive, fast and stable! :D
The information that you wrote on your site is priceless.

Do you have any plans to update the guide (It's from 2.6.31 days) ? 8)

I've had plans in the works to update for quite some time. It seems that circumstance has done its best to keep that from happening, but the plans remain. Once I get my domestic situation a bit more stable, yes. I want, nay, need to update all the pages to a newer kernel version. I just shudder at the days/weeks of work that's going to entail.

I am glad that your system likes the seeds. It's good to know that my little addition to the world of open source software was actually worthy.

Cheers,
Pappy
