Starting with the recent 6.34* and this 35* I need to pass nomodeset otherwise it brings me to a useless/nonresponsive black screen without video signal. Nvidia card.:confused:

I'm looking forward this entering Maverick, .35-rc1 is reported to improve on this long standing IO latency bug.

https://bugzilla.kernel.org/show_bug.cgi?id=12309

Also I hope it will help with the strange overheating issue I am seeing with .34, I don't want to waste time hunting it for .34 since we are aiming to use .35 anyways.

Installing it doesn't mean it's the one in use. Look at your grub menu and select the proper kernel.

My guess is that you didn't choose the new kernel in the grub menu during reboot.

Maybe acting like old kernel upgrades (years ago) where you had to choose maintainers version of a config file in order to update grub to include new kernel? this option would appear while installing new kernel.

I'm guessing this is not the problem though.

This is another good reason to use a custom menu with "symbolic" menu entries. You should try it. They just boot the latest kernel in the partition designated.

Just edit this to fit your box and put it in your 40_custom file and then when you save it save as 06 custom and it will be at the top of your menu;


echo "Adding ISO-test on sda13" >&2
cat << EOF
menuentry "ISO-test on sda13" {
set root=(hd0,13)
linux /vmlinuz root=/dev/sda13 ro quiet
initrd /initrd.img
}
EOF

would be nice but i have the older grub with menu.lst hard to change to me hours to make it work with raid 0, so is it really worth updating?

That is up to you. You do need to consider that grub-legacy is not supported by the grub folks anymore. Sometime you will have to.

All I can say is that I have all the menu generating scrips disabled and only use the custom menu and that once set up it is maintainance free. I can even install another Debian based OS on a partition and not have to do a thing to the menu for that partition.

Check the link in my sig. It is not in depth. It is written for simple minded people like me.

It gave me trouble compiling my ever painful broadcom driver, but with a bit of commenting hack, I was able to do it.

Interestingly, on a system start, on this kernel(2.6.35) I have around 168 processes running, where as on 2.6.34.5.12, on same system (everything same) at system start I have around 138 processes running. However, starting memory is same. Time to run for office, will report in evening.

When you install grub2 it asks you if you want to keep grub1 and daisy chain into grub2. Say yes and you have a fallback if it don't work out :)

Also: bios -> grub1 with a new grub2 option -> grub2 -> os

I'm in the process of checking these problems out for myself. Running benchmarks now then I'll compile .35-rc1 and bench again. Phoronix uses somewhat tricky hardware for these kernel-benchmarks so I want to see this for myself. If the problem were indeed that huge we would've seen some action/complaints on LKML by now.

On Monday night the kernel developers were informed of the problem. There is some speculation as to the root cause, which might have already been fixed.

Well, I've now compiled .35-rc1 and tested it against the drm-radeon-testing tree from the 21st of May (based on 2.6.34-rc6, it was my standard kernel the past days and not much different (except for the drm-stuff) from the .34 final).
I've used both real-world (zipping, video-playback, compiling...) as well as synthetic benchmarks (using my preferred LinuxUser Benchmark Suite 2.1.1) and have found .35-rc1 to generally be slightly ahead (2-3%) of .34-rc6 in most cases. The cases where it regressed (bonnie++) were nearly non-detectable and within the error-range of benchmarking a running machine with background-processes.

I'm not saying this'll apply for all machines but judging from my testing I can say don't let the Phoronix article put you off testing this kernel - I'm staying with it until rc2 is out :D

2.6.35-020635rc1 seemed to be missing built-in rt2x00 drivers. They did not show in lsmod and could not be modprobe'd. I tried manually modprobe-ing the old rt2860sta driver, but it has same issues as in 2.6.32/34 Lucid/Maverick kernels.

Installing compat-wireless-2010-05-31 failed during compile with tons of error messages about missing files and duplicate symbols though I suppose that's normal given all the new code.

So no wireless and no Internet for me. Maybe I'll check out rc2 when it's out.

The missing rt2x00 drivers bothers me though. Are these mainline ppa kernels configured the same way as the Maverick 2.6.35 packages will be delivered through the repos.? If not, then maybe I should skip the mainline ppa packages and wait for "the real thing."

moviemaniac
June 2nd, 2010, 01:41 PM
rt2x00 definitely is included upstream - I'd compile the kernel myself in your case (and I recommend anyone to do so anyway).

I just upgraded my Debian 'testing' -Xfce install from 2.6.32-5 amd-64 ... to the new Liquorix 2.6.34-39_amd-64 Kernel.

The download and install went smoothly.
I just had to make sure to install the 2 Images and the Header in the correct order.
Followed the directions from the OP in this thread ... no problems.

The re-boot was unremarkable ... and slightly faster.
Opened a Terminal and checked that, indeed, the new Kernel was there ... http://forums.linuxmint.com/images/smilies/icon_biggrin.gif
Internet connection works great.

Seems to be 'all systems go'

I'll let you know if I notice a marked performance upgrade.

And I also, added the 'Main and Future' Kernel repositories to my sources.list.
The 2.6.35 Kernel is on the 'horizon' :P

2.6.35-rc1 is runing on my main machine flawlessly. No regressions noticeable. Same goes for four other machines I compiled the kernel on yesterday. That's all I can say. Of course, it might be my kernel configs or Phoronix's configs or whatever, all I can say is that I can't reproduce Phoronix's findings on my machines. All I can say is: Check for yourself, if you don't like it, switch back to an oler kernel.

i think that this was a bit over the top as a response. It was most likely a misunderstanding.


I'd be interested in hearing from ATI users as to how their power saving is doing with this kernel. Especially seeing as it has new voltage regulation now included in the open driver.

A powertop example or two would be good. (i plan to test myself in the near future).

The i915 driver only cover i915 chipset, or does it cover all chipsets in xserver-xorg-video-intel (so it covers any i810, i815, i830, i845, i855, i865, i915, i945 and i965 series chips)?

i915 is the name of the intel kernel module/driver (it's called 'drm (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Direct_Rendering_Manager)'). For more proof, check 'lspci -vv' and check the 'VGA' line; it should say something like:

Kernel driver in use: i915
Kernel modules: i915

[drm] Initialized i915 1.6.0 20080730 for 0000:00:02.0 on minor 0

I'd be curious how mutter performs using the latest clutter snapshot (1.3.2), which promises some long awaited performance improvements. Anyone try this yet? It would be nice to see this in a maverick build on ppa:ricotz/testing (hint, hint...)

Testing on Maverick's mutter, and it appears snappier (and top reports it mostly idle).

However, there can never be too much of a good thing. And it seems that the window management (in unity, at least) has gone down the pot. It seems mutter wrongfully detects the edge of the screen and maximises windows in weird places. :)

:guitar:

2.6.35-1 is the first maverick repo kernel with working wireless support for my RT2860 PCI card. This is without compiling any drivers like Ralink's driver or the compat-wireless backported RT2x00 drivers. I left the rt2860sta driver module blacklisted, FWIW.

(2.6.34 and 2.6.32 could not associate with my access point.)

Only problem with the otherwise-working 2.6.35-1:


[ 22.341862] phy0 -> rt2x00pci_regbusy_read: Error - Indirect register access failed: offset=0x00007010, value=0xffffffff
[ 22.342394] phy0 -> rt2x00pci_regbusy_read: Error - Indirect register access failed: offset=0x00007010, value=0xffffffff
[ 22.342899] phy0 -> rt2x00pci_regbusy_read: Error - Indirect register access failed: offset=0x00007010, value=0xffffffff
[ 22.363072] phy0 -> rt2800pci_mcu_status: Error - MCU request failed, no response from hardware

I will have to research this one a bit.

I installed
linux-image-2.6.35-020635rc1-generic_2.6.35-020635rc1_amd64.deb
and it went fine, but when I went to install
Linux-headers-2.6.35-020635rc1-generic_2.6.35-020635rc1_amd64.deb
It gave dependency errors.

Am I doing something wrong?

Nevermind! I installed the Linux-Headers...all.deb first and then the

Linux-headers-2.6.35-020635rc1-generic_2.6.35-020635rc1_amd64.deb

and it took it.
Rebooting now...

Had some oopses and system crashes with the Ubuntu kernel (wireless networking involved) but not with my tailored/minimal -rc1. Maybe it's again a problem with FTRACE (that caused stinky problems with iwl3945 some time ago)?

I remember Linus saying in rc2 that there was a lot of DVB changes. So far I could not get 35 to play my TV tuner. Any ideas? TIA

Just installed 10.10 alpha 1 and updated everything.
Runs much faster even on my old laptop.

So happy with the working intel drivers!

My first time trying to contribute anything to an OS :D
