Kernel 2.6.32.3

MIB kernel logoKernel 2.6.32.3 for Mandriva 2009.1 - 2010.0

64bit  & 32bit ready and tested!
ONLY FOR SOME BRAVE HEARTS...

- New stable kernel branch
- Nuovo ramo stabile del kernel

 

 

To install in mdv 2010.0, these are not in /experts repo, you need to add another repo:

 

Mandriva 2010.0 64bit

Folder: http://mib.pianetalinux.org/MIB/2010.0/64/projects/kernels/2.6.32.3/

so, if you wish to add the repo:

urpmi.addmedia --update kernel-26323 http://mib.pianetalinux.org/MIB/2010.0/64/projects/kernels/2.6.32.3/



Mandriva 2010.0 32bit

Folder: http://mib.pianetalinux.org/MIB/2010.0/32/projects/kernels/2.6.32.3/

so, if you wish to add the repo:

urpmi.addmedia --update kernel-26323 http://mib.pianetalinux.org/MIB/2010.0/32/projects/kernels/2.6.32.3/

 

 

if you wish to update with that kernel, from your root konsole you must write

urpmi --auto-select --auto

or i.e., if for kernel desktop

urpmi kernel-desktop-latest kernel-desktop-devel-latest

INTRO: Il MIB, come dovreste sapere, si è occupato a partire dalla Mandriva 2007.1, anche di realizzare delle versioni customizzate (mibizzate) dei vari Kernel per Mandriva Linux, cercando di sopperire alla mancanza di kernel aggiornati, ed in maniera rapida, da fonti ufficiali.

Così è avvenuto inizialmente per la serie 2.6.26.x del Mandriva 2008.1, poi per la serie 2.6.27.x del 2009.0, di seguito per la 2.6.28.x, si continuerà adesso con la serie 2.6.29.x, nativa di Mandriva 2009.1, che cercheremo di supportare per tutte le Distro attualmente suportate dal MIB, ovvero a partire dalla 2008.1, e 2009.0.

Dal momento che ci è stata richiesta, da qualcuno e anche dagli amici olandesi di MCNL, abbiamo deciso di provare a portare avanti anche la serie 2.6.31.X e adesso la 2.6.32.X

There are some known problems (to be resolved) with:
Sono conosciuti alcuni problemi (che devono essere risolti) con:

- Older ATI drivers (proprietary fglrx) don't work, newer are OK

- A few models WiFi drivers dont work, modules can't compile

Suggestion: If you use proprietary drivers or other dkms

Suggerimento: Per usare driver proprietari (Ati/Nvidia) e altri dkms

 

en18IMPORTANT: English zone
To make proprietary video drivers (ati / nvidia) and some others dkms drivers, I remember you need to install also:

  • dkms
  • kernel-devel

And precisely:
if you use kernel-desktop, you need kernel-desktop-devel-latest
if you use kernel-server, you need kernel-server-devel-latest

itIMPORTANTE: In Italiano
Per rendere funzionali i driver video proprietari (ati / nvidia) e alcuni altri driver dkms, ricordo che è indispensabile installare:

  • dkms,
  • kernel-devel

E precisamente:
Se usi il kernel-desktop occorre installare kernel-desktop-devel-latest
se usi il kernel-server occorre installare kernel-server-devel-latest
