Kernel 2.6.31.12

MIB kernel logoKernel 2.6.31.12 for Mandriva 2009.1 - 2010.0

Porting has started
all versions are incoming now!

- New stable kernel branch
- Nuovo ramo stabile del kernel

 

To install in mdv 2010.0, if you have /experts repo enabled, you don't need to add any other repo, you can use only:

as update is not enabled by default, so 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

New stable kernel branch, but not native for 2009.1, to be recommended only to those who have unsolvable HW problems with the series  2.6.29.X, or MIB 2.6.30.X

Ramo nuovo e stabile, ma non nativo in 2009.1, da consigliare solo a coloro i quali hanno dei problemi HW irrisolvibili con la serie 2.6.29.X, or MIB 2.6.30.X

 

Also tested successfull with VM software (as Host PC and Guest clients)

- Vmware Workstation 6.5.3
- Vmware Player 2.5.3

- Vmware 7.0
- VirtualBox 3.0.8

-nvidia-current  dkms drivers

It works all flawless, it's very speedy and much more responsive than mdv
It works perfectly with the current Nvidia and ATI proprietary DKMS drivers

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, e 2.6.29.x nativa di Mandriva 2009.1,  e adesso con la 2.6.31.x che cercheremo di supportare per tutte le Distro attualmente supportate dal MIB, ovvero a partire dalla 2009.1 alla 2010.0.

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
