Re: [Project] kernel-netbook

Have you already considered use /etc/rc.local.shutdown?

If you managed to get TOI working on 2.6.39 please write me how smile

Btw, i've updated to 2.6.39.1....There isn't the arch logo, i'm waiting a tpowa's update...Changelog in google code as ever...

Well, good news over here
This is what I did:

-I had uswsusp-fbsplash so I uninstalled it.
-Installed hibernate-script from the AUR, not using pacman as the (outdated?) wiki said.
-passed the swap partition path as a kernel parameter like this "resume=/dev/sdXX" in /boot/grub/menu.lst
-changed the swap partition path in /etc/hibernate/tuxonice.conf like this "SuspendDevice swap:/dev/sdXX"
-changed the powerdown method to 5 (poweroff) because 3 (suspend-to-RAM) throwed me a Segfault before even trying to hibernate and 4 (ACPI S4 sleep) throwed a Segfault just after resuming, leaving me unable to hibernate again. hmm
-activated the FullSpeedCPU parameter (in tuxonice.conf too) to take advantage of the 2 (cores?) that my atom shows up at boot tongue
-rebooted (to apply the kernel parameter)

and voilá, TOI working in my netbook

I'm using XFCE with KDM (used KDE4 but it's a resource eater you see lol ) and it boots really fast cool

Re: [Project] kernel-netbook

just installed it and for the first time i was able to use pm-suspend on my dell inspiron mini. Also it takes a lot less boot time with this kernel. Thanks a lot for this work!

But I also got two problems:
- I get Kernel Panics when I try to boot without initrd
- when I start with initrd I get a message something like this (can't find it in the logs):
modprobe: fatal: could not insert /lib/module/2.6.39-netbook/modules.dep - no such file or dir
but I created the file with depmod and it exists.

any suggestions?

Did you create a new initrd for kernel-netbook, or are you using the old -ARCH-kernel initrd?

i was using /dev/by-label. switching to /dev/sda3 did the trick. thanks!
And I won't need a solution for the second thing but I did create a new initrd for kernel-netbook.

Re: [Project] kernel-netbook

I'm using the kernel on a MSI Wind U135 and it runs great smile only problem is the touchpad vert scroll and edge scroll are not working. It works fine with the standard kernel, just wondering if theres anything obvious I'm missing. synclient VertEdgeScroll=1 gives a 'Couldn't find synaptics properties.No synaptic driver loaded' error.

Re: [Project] kernel-netbook

It's strange because it seems that the kernel has already all the modules...Have you tried also with 2.6.39.X kernel right?

p.s. excuse me for the late response but i'm in full exams period...

Re: [Project] kernel-netbook

Long story so bear with me!

I used to run Ubuntu (since 8.10) on my netbook, and I've always had an issue with wireless where it would drop randomly, and only a full halt/shutdown would cure it. Now, I put up with this all the way up to 10.10, hoping it would get fixed, but it didn't. A few months ago, I jumped to Arch, embarking on a Gentoo-style project where every package I install onto the system is custom compiled using my CFLAGS. I've only just started to use the wireless under Arch (was relying on eth0 until a couple of nights ago), and I'm disappointed to see the same issue occurs using your kernel sad It's not exactly the same - your kernel only requires a soft reboot or 2 to restore functionality, but it's still broken.

Now, the error I get in the /var/log/errors.log file is the "kernel: ath5k phy0: failed to wakeup the MAC Chip" and "kernel: ath5k phy0: can't reset hardware (-5)" as reported previously by Ubuntu users using madwifi, but now the atk5k driver is in the kernel I guess it's a different team's problem?

I did wonder if this is a hardware fault until I see others with the same issue, which leads me to think that the driver (or at least the implementation) is bugged. Have you any experience of this, and can you help me? I can provide any information you need me to (providing you tell me where to get it, I'm still pretty noob!) If you can't help, please can you tell me who I need to be reporting this to so I can try to get this resolved (hopefully upstream, eventually!)

Edit: Forgot to add - love your kernel, even better with the BFQ patch, lightning quick big_smile

You can try unloading and reloading the module with modprobe. modprobe -r ath5k, modprobe ath5k.

Re: [Project] kernel-netbook

I'm sure I've tried rmmod ath5k && modprobe ath5k before to no avail - I'm not sure if the driver is statically compiled into this kernel though...

Anyway, I'll give it a try next time it happens, thanks smile

Re: [Project] kernel-netbook

CONFIG_ATH5K=m

Should be a module. But yeah, some other card I used required a full power cycle before it'd reset, so I guess it could be the hardware that's just buggy.

Re: [Project] kernel-netbook

Hey, just to let you know that I'm thoroughly enjoying your kernel. Keep up the good work!

I'm wondering though: I'm using your kernel on an Acer Aspire One AOA110, and use an SD-card put my /home directory on. Is there anyone else who does this, and who has been able to make suspend/hibernate work? I have put some efford in trying to make this work in the past, but it never quite worked for me - always freezing up or giving a kernel error when I tried to suspend.

Yeah, I tried this. The card reader is very finicky, especially with SDHC-cards, but with a regular SD-card, I could do this with no problem, but with SDHC, I hit a brick wall. I suppose it's possible in certain environments, but with KDE or gnome, it's close to impossible. I never managed to get it to work in openbox either.

I just set it to automatically mount somewhere else through KDE and had a script unmount it on suspend. Worked somewhat fine, but suspend was very slow (20-30 seconds to suspend machine). Otherwise, I'd run into a risk of it hanging during resume instead.

The SSD in the AOA110L is pretty much crap anyways. Writing to it is extremely slow, and it's only 8GB. Most people I've talked to about this machine ended up switching to a regular harddrive, though I suppose you could a "real" SSD too. If you really want to do this, I suggest getting a regular SD-card (Which basically never is above 4GB unfortunately) and just running /home on that, then using the other card reader as a stash for music and such in the other card slot. That should save you some writes on /, and still give you some storage space. It's not much of an appealing solution though, and I'd think it'd be quite prone to errors.

For now, I just use the machine as a small server running minecraft. Works surprisingly well, I must say.

Re: [Project] kernel-netbook

Quick question - when attempting to compile glibc, it says I need "linux-api-headers=>2.6.39", is this different from the headers shipped with this kernel? If not, do I need to mod the glibc PKGBUILD in some way, or if they are different, am I safe to download the "linux-api-headers" package?

Edit: Never mind, I've had this resolved in another post (https://bbs.archlinux.org/viewtopic.php?pid=955909)

Re: [Project] kernel-netbook

A piece of trouble, possible bug: when I attach my Samsung Galaxy S (I9000) via USB cable only internal card is mounted. I checked the same on the stock kernel, both internal and external cards are mounted. Which additional info do I need to provide?
