I always use the stock -ARCH config and only modify the options related to your patchset. From what I see, crypt target support (dm-crypt) is there.

Right now, only the initial thread message appears on the mailing list archive, so I'm pasting below:

Hmm, I saw that mail, but I've got no systemd on my laptop. Possible real bug in 3.5.x with LVM, not related to systemd?

Anyway, Arch 3.5.3 works well for me, so I'll start preparing 3.5.3-pf.

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

Sorry to go slightly off topic, but speaking just about tuxonice, doesn't anybody have problems hibernating when the image size is particulary big?

For me, on two systems with kernel 3.4.x, it always fails when i left (say) firefox open with some tabs, so i keep clearing caches before going to hibernation and everything works, but that way my system is unresponsive at resume.
It fails in "preparing images" stage, and then complains about wacky drivers or so, but the same drivers are loaded when the memory is free, so i guess it is wrong.

The same DOES NOT happen with 3.2 (but is on other hardware too)

Define particularly big. I only have problems if image size > swap size (~1,9 GiB), which happens only when I leave my browser open so I usually exit it before hibernation…

I guess that is well-known issue with memory allocation, and it hasn't been fixed yet.

Yup, I get that too. A work-around is to have hibernate script execute "sync; echo 3 >| /proc/sys/vm/drop_caches" at the beginning of hibernation.

I also had that option in /etc/hibernate/common.conf while I used uswsusp (when TOI didn't work with the first few linux 3.0 releases) but removed it when switching back to TOI and have no lags whatsoever after resume.

However, I've got

DisableWritecacheOne /dev/sda # that's where swap resides, cf. man hibernate.conf

enabled… maybe that makes the difference?

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

Hey everybody, my first post here smile
I found some weird things on the PKGBUILD, specifically on parts concerning aufs3:

mv include/linux/Kbuild "${pkgdir}/usr/src/linux-${_kernver}/include/"

Here's a citation from aufs3's README:

Never copy $PWD/include/linux/Kbuild.

Well, something seems wrong...

Another one, from inside build():

mkdir -p "${pkgdir}/usr/src/linux-${_kernver}/include"

The problem is: _kernver is only set on package_linux-pmod(), so you end creating a linux-/ folder in ${pkgdir}/usr/include/


I'll post a patch here later if I have time.

I think aufs3-util won't compile without that, but it's been a long time since I put it to test. Any testing is welcome.

No, $_kernver is exported to all functions below the parent. You can check the directory tree of linux-pf-headers.

Thanks for your feedback, it's really appreciated.

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

I did some testing here, and this is what I see:

After

mv include/linux/Kbuild "${pkgdir}/usr/src/linux-${_kernver}/include/"

is executed, it would be later overwritten by

for i in acpi asm-generic config crypto drm generated linux math-emu \
  media mtd net pcmcia scsi sound trace video xen; do
  cp -a include/${i} "${pkgdir}/usr/src/linux-${_kernver}/include/"
done

that replaces it by the kernel's file (which BTW was patched by aufs3-kbuild.patch, adding the lines from aufs' Kbuild) so copying it is disnecessary. Considering it's contents are already added by aufs3-kbuild.patch, it doesn't make any difference but it would be less confusing to do 'rm include/linux/Kbuild' (do not just remove the 'mv include/...' part, because if you do that it would overwrite the kernel's include/linux/Kbuild).




And also about $_kernver: I did a test, and put a 'echo ${_kernver}' right before the command that uses it in build(), and it had no output. If I run a ls ${pkgdir}/usr/src/ at the moment it asks me about the kernel's config, it shows a 'linux-' directory, so I don't know why the package doesn't have it.

Excellent debugging work, I'll fix it in 3.5.3-pf. Thanks.

3.5.3-pf is up for grabs.

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

I was checking the PKGBUILD because I couldn't build aufs3-utils. It still fails, but now I found why:
When make install_headers is executed, it puts the modified headers in usr/include folder in the kernel's source tree, not in ${pkgdir}/. It isn't copied to ${pkgdir}/ later nor anything, so the aufs_type.h file that ends in ${pkgdir}/usr/src/linux.../include/linux/ is the one copied by

for i in acpi asm-generic config crypto drm generated linux math-emu \
  media mtd net pcmcia scsi sound trace video xen; do
  cp -a include/${i} "${pkgdir}/usr/src/linux-${_kernver}/include/"
done

To solve that, I removed the make headers_install from before the c/p from linux-ARCH, and put it near the end of package_linux-pf-headers(), so that it isn't overwritten by the previous code, with the argument INSTALL_HDR_PATH=${pkgdir}/usr/src/linux-${_kernver}.

A patch: http://pastebin.com/Fx27CZX6

I already tested it, and with that I am able to build aufs3-util (with some modifications to it's PKGBUILD, I still have to add 'export CPPFLAGS="${CPPFLAGS}-I/lib/modules/$(uname -r)/build/include"')

I just checked my /usr/src/linux-pf/include/linux directory against linux-ARCH's one and indeed there a couple of thousand header files missing. This shouldn't happen as I copy/paste the packaging sections from linux-ARCH into linux-pf, but I'll investigate.

I got it. It seems leodag's suggestion to relocate the 'make headers_install' directive, left a lot of header files out. I'm working on an updated PKGBUILD right now.
