Re: 2.6.15-archck1

Cool.  8)

I'm going to port archck kernel to arch64. Is anything known not to work in x86-64 environment?

Re: 2.6.15-archck1

No, it should work fine in an x86-64 environment. There isnt any real 'porting' to do per-se, the patches included afaik all support x86-64.

So its just a matter of modifying your existing kernels pkgbuild to add this, and change the config for any extra stuff.

Re: 2.6.15-archck1

I'm up andd running on 2.6.15-archck1 now, and I have one small issue - fbsplash didn't work as normal at boot time. Specifically, it didn't pick up the theme name, so no background was set. My setup hasn't changed from previous, working kernels i.e. boot parameters

splash=verbose,theme:encelo console=tty1

and

initrd /boot/fbsplash-encelo-1024x768

If I run

/etc/rc.d/gensplash restart

after booting up, the result is still the same - unless I do

export SPLASH_THEME=encelo

first, in which case tty2-6 get the background. tty1 is still without a background.

I don't see a new version of gensplashutils from spock - maybe I should rebuild the current one?

Re: 2.6.15-archck1

Kernel compilation on arch confused me a bit since it's lot different than others (maybe am just imagining it big_smile ), anyway the guide at http://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/Cus … d_later%29 is the correct guide to follow?

Thx very much for the patch i was waiting it big_smile

Re: 2.6.15-archck1

It is sort of the latest...it doesn't have any support for initrd or initramfs yet tho, it will be a while before I can fix that too.

If anyone does want to update can they make a new page that basically does the same but adds initrd and initramfs stuff, rather than converting the original page completely, seeing as not everyone will want to use initrd and if it ain't broke it don't need fixing big_smile

Re: 2.6.15-archck1

Can anyone please update the files here:
http://cvs.archlinux.org/cgi-bin/viewcv … ag=CURRENT

Or post updated PKGBUILD, cdburing.patch, config and kernel26.intsall
I would have done it myself if I knew how.

Got few questions:

1) Isn't updating PKGBUILD a matter of replacing "2.6.14" with "2.6.15" and "archck4" with "archck1"  and updating the md5sums?

2) Can I use the old kernel26.install

3) Can I use the stock arch config for 2.6.15 from here http://cvs.archlinux.org/cgi-bin/viewcv … /kernel26/ ?

4) cdburing.patch references 2.6.8, how come it worked for 2.6.14archck4 ?

EDIT: added the md5sums part

Re: 2.6.15-archck1

You're confusing the patchset called archck with the AUR package called kernel26archck. iphitus says:

AUR Package
It's in the works, I will upload it when some of the TU stuff I'm dealing with is fixed.

You'll have to wait for that upload to see updated files in CVS.

Your questions:
1. Usually, yes.
2. Yes.
3. The stock arch config is for an initrd kernel - the kernel26archck PKGBUILD is not. You could the stock config as your starting point, but you would to change some options from M (module) to Y (in kernel).
4. cdburning.patch is no longer required.

Yes, please ignore all that crap I posted earlier about fbsplash. It's entirely my own fault. I convinced myself that, because I don't use the stock kernel, I could remove initrd support from my kernel - forgetting completely that fbsplash needs it.  roll

Re: 2.6.15-archck1

There is no package for 2.6.15-archck yet but 2.6.14-archck is in [community], just install it and update  your /boot/grub/menu.lst.

I built 2.6.15 with archck and everything is running nicely. I did get an oops with LIRC (built against this kernel) but there is every chance that was my fault. I'll try playing with that later and see if I still get an error.

so i guess you have changed the PKGBUILD to include 2.6.15-ck1 ?
can you try to paste me the PKGBUILD for 2.6.15-ck1 against 2.6.14-ck4

Gandalf, just edit the 2.6.14-archck4 PKGBUILD, replacing 2.6.14 with 2.6.15, and archck4 with archck1. Then select your config method, and run makepkg.

Gandalf;

Ran that PKGBUILD first off and it failed to accept the patch.bz2.

Tried many times and ended with the posted PKGBUILD.

No background on your makepkgproblem...sorrry.

Re: 2.6.15-archck1

As someone mentioned earlier about a problem with gensplash, i have this issue too, i just finished installing the kernel, and installing gensplash however, gensplash will only start when the daemon gensplash is called before it there is no background, plus the background is still there is no movement like on the below pic (don't mind the text issue)
[URL=http://img20.imageshack.us/my.php?image=splash2uy.png]splash2uy.th.png[/URL]

on verbose it does work though
my grub entry is

Re: 2.6.15-archck1

The kernel is not downloaded completely or it's corrupted, go to http://www.kernel.org and download 2.6.15.tar.bz2 then put it in the same folder as PKGBULD
