    Re: Wayland Live CD

    I was trying the script in QQ 12.10 but now im back in RBL and was wondering if it works here, guess theres no cure for QQ kernel.
    Just wanted to try the iso inside of Quantal,
    Thanks for the help.

    Ok. I updated the test script.

    I am using unionfs-fuse that appears to be in Quantal and precise and probably older versions, but it's slower then AUFS.

    I also added a zenity gui, so all you need to do is start the script after making it executable, and the dialogs should lead you through the process.

    Wow, it works great! It doesn't seem slow to me and im using the nouveau driver, all the hint text on the icons are readable now, before they had that 45 degree slant.
    Not tested it to much, I tired, been up too long...

    Thanks a lot.

    Haha! sweet! it works! I think that's officially the easiest way to test Wayland now!
    EDIT: I'm tempted to make that script call weston instead of a shell...
    EDIT2: I just remembered... I make it call a shell so it can be used in a tty...

    Yep its pretty COOL!, is there something in the script to edit so it starts weston instead of a shell?
    I've got 3 or 4 scripts here in my DL's, maybe you should number them so I dont get lost, haha...

    Re: Wayland Live CD

    Svn Browse:

    Oh my goodness! unionfs-fuse! It's slower then dirt. Quantal users won't be able to build the ISO, but most users are not interested in building the iso. revert it to aufs

    HAHA! The new dirt seems to run as fast as the old dirt to me...

    How can I try aufs? Another OS like Fedora or what ?
    No big deal, just wondering,

    Re: Wayland Live CD

    I haven't tried the script yet, but this is what I get in Mint 13 using locate aufs.ko

    Code:
    /lib/modules/3.2.0-23-generic/kernel/ubuntu/aufs/aufs.ko
    /lib/modules/3.2.0-27-generic/kernel/ubuntu/aufs/aufs.ko
    /lib/modules/3.2.0-29-generic/kernel/ubuntu/aufs/aufs.ko
    /lib/modules/3.2.0-30-generic/kernel/ubuntu/aufs/aufs.ko
    I'll check my QQ installation in a minute and see what that has.
    Edit:
    Checked and apparently QQ has aufs support in the kernel source, but not the modules weren't built.

    Code:
    /usr/src/linux-headers-3.5.0-13/ubuntu/aufs
    /usr/src/linux-headers-3.5.0-13/ubuntu/aufs/Kconfig
    /usr/src/linux-headers-3.5.0-13/ubuntu/aufs/Makefile
    /usr/src/linux-headers-3.5.0-13-generic/include/config/aufs
    /usr/src/linux-headers-3.5.0-13-generic/include/config/aufs/bdev
    /usr/src/linux-headers-3.5.0-13-generic/include/config/aufs/br
    /usr/src/linux-headers-3.5.0-13-generic/include/config/aufs/branch
    /usr/src/linux-headers-3.5.0-13-generic/include/config/aufs/fs.h
    /usr/src/linux-headers-3.5.0-13-generic/include/config/aufs/poll.h
    /usr/src/linux-headers-3.5.0-13-generic/include/config/aufs/sbilist.h
    /usr/src/linux-headers-3.5.0-13-generic/include/config/aufs/bdev/loop.h
    /usr/src/linux-headers-3.5.0-13-generic/include/config/aufs/br/fuse.h
    /usr/src/linux-headers-3.5.0-13-generic/include/config/aufs/br/hfsplus.h
    /usr/src/linux-headers-3.5.0-13-generic/include/config/aufs/br/ramfs.h
    /usr/src/linux-headers-3.5.0-13-generic/include/config/aufs/branch/max
    /usr/src/linux-headers-3.5.0-13-generic/include/config/aufs/branch/max/127.h
    I'll try the script in a few minutes and let you know how it goes. If it doesn't work, you may have to build the kernel from source, something we rarely need to do these days.

    Edit:
    Had to comb the repo for the last script that uses aufs (614). So far, it seems to be mounting the image, nothing beyond that, but at least aufs is working.

    On the other hand, I did try the most recent version of the script and it works well on my machine, even if it is a bit slow, a bit faster when using LXDE. I have a really old machine though, and I imagine that most modern machines will have little trouble running this. Either way, once again, nice work. I just wish the Ubuntu devs would get involved and help get Wayland moving along instead of waiting for everyone else to do the work.

    Re: Wayland Live CD

    In QQ /usr/src/linux-headers-3.5.0-13/ubuntu/kconfig what does this mean ?

    menu "Ubuntu Supplied Third-Party Device Drivers"

    #
    # NOTE: to allow drivers to be added and removed without causing merge
    # collisions you should add new entries in the middle of the six lines
    # of ## at the bottom of the list. Always add three lines of ## above
    # your new entry and maintain the six lines below.
    #

    ##
    ##
    ##
    source "ubuntu/dm-raid4-5/Kconfig"
    ##
    ##
    ##
    ##
    ##

    ##
    ##
    ##
    source "ubuntu/aufs/Kconfig"
    ##
    ##
    ##
    ##
    ##
    ##

    endmenu

    Does that make the aufs.ko ?

    Re: Wayland Live CD

    Looks like that would be where third party drivers are added and then they have to be added to the config and make file. Notice that in the Makefile in the same directory, the line
    Code:
    #obj-$(CONFIG_AUFS_FS)		+= aufs/
    is commented out with a "#". So it's likely that it would get ignored at build time. But to answer your question, yes, that's where it would come from.

    I was looking for a way to build the kernel module without having to build the whole kernel, but so far I haven't found much information on this one.
