Hi nous,

latest kmod from testing branch breaks linux-pf.

I am guessing that is because it is looking for modules in /usr/lib/modules instead of /lib/modules.
Could you change your config for that?
I am guessing it would still work with people using core repo only but not sure.

Thanks

WTF, why on earth would they change the modules path? It's been there since the beginning, it's got nothing to do with /usr FFS...</rant>

I'll do it with the next linux-pf release. In the meantime please either downgrade kmod or symlink /lib/modules/3.4-pf (and extramodules-3.4-pf).

Necessary step for changing /lib to a symlink (which is intended to move /lib to /usr eventually) I think. There was advance (maybe 12 hours?) warning on arch-dev-public, which [testing] users really should be subscribed to. All custom kernels and AUR modules affected, obviously

linux-ice has already been fixed, but other packages, such as oss, catalyst and virtualbox haven't. I found that:

rm -r /lib/modules && ln -s /usr/lib/modules /lib/modules

Has worked as a temporary workaround. be sure to check the contents of /lib/modules first to satisfy yourself that there's nothing in there that you need/want to keep.

Here, on 3.4.3-1 (core2) suspend-to-ram works fine!

I suspect the issue lays with the 3xxx nvidia drivers.

Re: The linux-pf thread; BFS/CK, TuxOnIce, BFQ, AUFS3

Can somebody help me with these problems:

First, when I boot the system with linux-pf, I get this error message:

resume: could not stat the resume device file '/dev/sda99'
Please type in the full path name to try again
or press ENTER to boot the system:

After pressing Enter two times, it finally boots. Then there is another problem.
The broadcom wl driver doesn't work. Is there anything I can do so that it can work?

Thanks in advance, God bless!

Use the AUR broadcom-wl-ck package. Download, replace all -ck with -pf and it should work perfectly. Then upload it back to the AUR and share your effort and knowledge.

As for the other problem with the resume device, you have to upload to a pastebin service your configuration files for more details. See which ones in the previous thread pages.

Thanks smile
Found the problem with the resume device.. (I removed uresume from hooks and it works now; will be figuring out how to use tuxonice)
As for the other problem, yes, I did that, and it worked. I will upload it back to AUR very soon. smile

Thanks again.

EDIT: Here is the package on AUR: https://aur.archlinux.org/packages.php?ID=60629

Re: The linux-pf thread; BFS/CK, TuxOnIce, BFQ, AUFS3

linux-pf 3.4 brought me only problems. No more USB automount (works on non-pf kernel), no resume form suspend2ram (probably for 3xx nvidia drivers), no vmware modules compilation.

How can I downgrade linux-pf to 3.3 and nvidia-pf to 2xx?

Shouldn't a simple rebuild do the trick? Or are nvidia modules only working with newest kernvers? I shouldn't think so…

Re: The linux-pf thread; BFS/CK, TuxOnIce, BFQ, AUFS3

No, I need to install nvidia 29x drivers, and the current nvidia-pf package comes only with 3xx, which is also what I already have installed.

I also get an error when building linux-pf with older PCKGBUILD:

  -> Found change-default-console-loglevel.patch
==> ERROR: ext4-options.patch was not found in the build directory and is not a URL.
==> ERROR: Makepkg was unable to build linux-pf.

Don't just grab the PKGBUILD of a previous version; it won't work.

Run 'makepkg' to get your 3.3.6-pf?

Re: The linux-pf thread; BFS/CK, TuxOnIce, BFQ, AUFS3

with the latest update, i was unable to build the package correctly. the exact error message was:

ERROR: could not open directory /tmp/yaourt-tmp-olli/aur-linux-pf/pkg/linux-pf/lib/modules/3.4-pf: No such file or directory
FATAL: could not search modules: No such file or directory

the message ist displayed during/after the step

DEPMOD  3.4-pf

maybe this has something to do with the upcoming changes in kmod (removing of /lib ) ?

EDIT:
found the "error". changed the depmod command in the PKGBUILD. but on install it complains about kmod=<9-2 needed. so it's definitly because the upcoming kmod change and i think it will work, when kmod 9-2 is out. Don't mind my issues above.

Not in my home system, it crashes _very_ regularly xorg when I play video.
