Re: [Project] kernel-netbook

the asus eeepc 701 isn't supported, is it? i know this one is based on the custom kernel for the eee pc 901, which i previously tried to use on my 701; it seemed to work okay, but it didn't support my wireless card, since the 901 uses a different brand... so does this kernel support realtek RTL8187SE cards? i might give it a try.
i can't recall if i attempted to modprobe for appropriate module, would that work?

Re: [Project] kernel-netbook

@disappoint
your model is not official supported because it hasn't an intel atom cpu...But i don't exclude that this kernel works...

I can suggest you to give a try to kernel-eee created by toofishes wink

Thanks, I tried that one too, but wireless didn't work either (I remember looking for more information and apparently toofishes said it wasn't supported yet?). Maybe I'll just try messing with his config though and compile my own custom kernel tongue

Re: [Project] kernel-netbook

@dieghen89
You are correct. I went back to the original Arch kernel and the same message is showing up. Just hadn't noticed it because I only ran the stock kernel a couple of times before installing kernel-netbook. Googling found a few references of other systems with the same message. As sound IS working on my machine, I'm not going to spend a whole lot of time trying to clear it up.

@skunktrader
Thanks, I'll give that a try and see what happens smile
Edit: No change except for an additional message saying asound.state not found. Sound and mic still work.

Re: [Project] kernel-netbook

@disappoint
give a look in your bios information because your wireless has to work with this kernel and toofishes one.....
Btw:

Re: [Project] kernel-netbook

Hello,

First of all, thanks to dieghen89 for the work wink

I've tried to install with tarball files because yaourt can't install it because one link is dead, so looking in the comments I changed the url and checksum for the new and everything downloads without problems. After about 1 hour of kernel compilation I don't see any vmlinuz-netbook in /boot/ directory. Everything looks fine, without errors during installation, so... Where is the lost file? sad

Thanks all!

Re: [Project] kernel-netbook

Have you used makepkg to build the package? In this case it doesn't install the file it only create the .pkg.tar.xz package in the dir of the PKGBUILD...You have to use pacman -U to install it...

I hope i have understood big_smile

That's interesting, I'll have to investigate... I don't think it's a BIOS issue since the stock Arch kernel detects my wifi card natively, but I'll make sure... Time to boot into toofishes' kernel once again tongue
Thanks for your help man!

Re: [Project] kernel-netbook

Oh, I gave the kernel another go today. I also tried switching uswsusp to tuxonice instead, and suspend seems to work just fine on my AAO (The first gen, the one with the crappy "SSD").

Nicely done dieghen89. smile

Thanks for your help man!

Update - I have successfully recompiled toofishes' kernel to include the rtl8187se driver. My netbook feels much more responsive this way, and it boots really fast now, too! It's a patched 2.6.35, so maybe I'll try to recompile the latest kernel soon, as well smile

Re: [Project] kernel-netbook

I've got an eeePC1000 and am using an up-to-date KDE.

I've found a reproducible bug on my machine in kernel-netbook-2.6.36.1-1-i686.pkg.tar.xz.
It is NOT present in the latest kernel-netbook-2.6.36.1-2-i686.pkg.tar.xz nor in the one previous to 1-1.

I watch videos on my netbook while on the treadmill,
I insert my usb flash drive, open it with krusader (dolphin not installed) and play a video with smplayer.
I normally exit smplayer using alt-F4, close the flash drive tab in krusader and unmount the flash drive with the Device Notifier.
All works normally to this point.
As soon as I pull the flash drive out of the machine I get a black screen with an extended error trace. I can get out of this screen but I'm not sure what is doing it. I alt-ctl-del and/or ctl-C. After about a minute I get a 'dong' sound and 5 or 10 seconds after that the screen clears to the KDE login screen. Re-logging in works and the computer responds normally from this point.
I've re-downloaded the 1-1 kernel in case of a corrupt download but this is still reproducible.

Re: [Project] kernel-netbook

Hi cylverbak, i now this bug, i am affected too using the 2.6.36.1-1...I've released the 2.6.36.1-2 to solve this problem...Also the arch kernel has it, and applying the ARCH-3 patchset all is solved (i hope)...

Re: [Project] kernel-netbook

I know BFS recommends using 1000hz for the timer, and it shouldn't matter since we use nohz, but due to some testing I found that switching to 300hz increased my batterytime with about 40-50 minutes (basically going from 4 hours to 5 hours).

What do you think, dieghen89?

Suspend to disk works flawlessly (for me, anyway) with the latest release's experimental initrd support!  Awesome!

Re: [Project] kernel-netbook

Can I use splashes like fbsplash or plymouth with this kernel? And if so, how do I do so?

I tried to use fbsplash's included splash_geninitramfs, but there was no splash screen when I used it as the initrd.

Re: [Project] kernel-netbook

@Zom
there are only benefits? Or there are some troubles...I don't know what do the frequency...

@TiZ
have you tried plymouth? With the initrd enabled  i think that it has to work...But i have other work to do to get the initramfs working..I miss the preset file...

No troubles yet, and reported battery time is increased about 30 minutes. 300hz is default in the regular arch kernel, but 1000hz is recommended by the BFS dev. However, there's no real negative impact on the performance of the netbook. The battery time however has significantly improved.

Theoretically, lowering the kernel tick could make the desktop a bit less responsive. But since the default is 300 in the regular kernel I really don't think it'll be noticeable.

But yeah, give it a spin yourself and see what you think.

Could you add uvcvideo as a module to the kernel? AAO needs it for its webcam. smile
