Kernel 3.0.42 for Mandriva 2010 2011.0 & ROSA 2012 2012.1

Post by NicCo »

Kernel 3.0.42 LTS for Mandriva 2010.2 2011.0 and ROSA 2012.0 2012.1

IMPORTANT, READ!
New path of the Kernel folders for Mandriva and ROSA

Kernel LTS 3.0.42
http://lwn.net/Articles/513634/
This is the official kernel serie used for ROSA 2012 LTS MARATHON
this version is the update prepared by MIB for Mandriva and ROSA
PLEASE, HELP US!
You are asked to test and POST your feedback mainly about three points


1> ALPS touchpad
With this version we are trying to solve, if is possible
http://helpdesk.rosalab.ru/front/ticket ... hp?id=3015&
and so we are testing a possible solution for the issues:
Added new experimental extra patches (now we need testing), you can read the full changelog with the new patches
to fix some issues relating to Alps Touchpad in notebooks, where "Standard kernel touchpad does not work correctly":
driver works as a standard mouse only with no horizzontal and/or vertical scroll, no multitap support, no 3rth button...

2> Install from "...-latest" metapackages

This example is for RM 2012 x86_64
You can add your repo with all recent kernel 3.0.xx

Code: Select all

urpmi.addmedia Kernels_30x http://abf.rosalinux.ru/downloads/kernels_30x_personal/repository/rosa2012lts/x86_64/main/release/ 
then install your preferred kernel flavours using -latest rpms (or other preferred flavours, another example kernel-nrj-desktop-pae, ecc...)

Code: Select all

urpmi kernel-nrj-desktop-devel-latest
urpmi kernel-nrj-desktop-latest
3> Install and test new cpu microcode firmwares (AMD/INTEL)
viewtopic.php?f=38&t=3424

With the proper cpu microcode enabled you can obtain a more reliability of you system, especially indespensable in server area, so when your cpu has a defect, kernel will found the best work-around to avoid slowdowns, or dangerous oops that could harm till to freeze your OS...
Availability
MDV2011, RM 2012, ROSA 2012.1

Builds
rpms for 2011 and 2012 2012.1 are clean build in ABF, rpms for 2010 are built in personal VM 2010.2

Testing status:
in Mandriva 2010.2 x64 and x32, it install, works and performs nice

Some problems could still occour in Mandriva 2011 by dracut remaining problems with installation and update
these problems if / when happen are not our fault, because aren't related to the kernel contents or packaging...
