Kernel 3.7.8 nrjQL for ROSA 2012.0 / 2012.1 & MDV 2010 2011

Post by NicCo »


Kernel 3.7.8 QL (Quantum Leap) for ROSA MARATHON 2012, ROSA Desktop 2012 (2012.1) and Mandriva 2010, MDV2011.0
Build in progress, the rpms would be available soon...
- all nrjQL laptop flavours since now use the full preemption

http://www.chimerarevo.com/kernel-linux ... -tcp-ipv6/

General INFO about the new project - Read carefully!
Kernel nrjX(treme?), the Next Generation... a step forward


nrjQL suffix is the new codename > http://it.wikipedia.org/wiki/Quantum_leap

Metaphorically, quantum leap also means a "quantum leap" or like a radical paradigm shift in science, technology, or in other contexts.
Metaforicamente, quantum leap indica anche un salto di qualità o un radicale mutamento di paradigma nella scienza, nella tecnologia o in altri contesti.

Starting since this kernel 3.7 series, we started using a new source NRJ model V4 (much improved)
for this 3.7.8 version now we have built only 3 flavours: nrjQL-desktop, nrjQL-realtime, nrjQL-laptop

For all kernel 3.5 and 3.6 versions, we used NRJ model v3
For Kernel from 3.0 to 3.4 series we used model v2, info here >>> viewtopic.php?f=38&t=3551

It's a very complete flavours list
  • kernel-nrjQL-desktop = mainline kernel-nrj-desktop plus the add of +CK1 +BFS +BFQ +TOI +UKSM
  • kernel-nrjQL-desktop-vm > like mainline kernel-nrj-desktop plus the add of +CK1 +BFS +BFQ +TOI +UKSM
    It's the one optimized for desktop use in combo with some Virtual Machine (for example VMWare products)
  • kernel-nrjQL-realtime > like mainline kernel-nrj-realtime plus the add of +CK1 +BFS +BFQ +TOI +UKSM
    It's the one optimized for all realtime and pro audio apps (DAW) > examples: Jackd, Ardour, Rosegarden, ecc...
  • kernel-nrjQL-laptop > like mainline kernel-nrj-laptop plus the add of +CK1 +BFS +BFQ +TOI +UKSM
    with laptop configs and lower internal frequency, ONDEMAND profile to improve battery lasting
  • kernel-nrjQL-netbook > like mainline kernel-nrj-netbook plus the add of +CK1 +BFS +BFQ +TOI +UKSM
    with netbook configs and lower internal frequency, ONDEMAND profile to improve battery lasting
  • kernel-nrjQL-server > like mainline kernel-server plus the add of +CK1 +BFS +BFQ +TOI +UKSM
    to be used in a generic server environment (like LAMP) and other server apps
  • kernel-nrjQL-server-games > like mainline kernel-server plus the add of +CK1 +BFS +BFQ +TOI +UKSM
    to be used in a game server PC for 3D FPS games, for example CounterStrike
  • kernel-nrjQL-server-computing > like mainline kernel-server plus the add of +CK1 +BFS +BFQ +TOI +UKSM
    to be used in a cumputational server when you need some less times to file encoder, converter, and build programs
Then we have all PAE flavours, and for now only one CPU oriented (new Intel) + PAE
  • kernel-nrjQL-desktop-pae
  • kernel-nrjQL-realtime-pae
  • kernel-nrjQL-laptop-pae
  • kernel-nrjQL-netbook-pae
these have been optimized for all Intel cpus greater than Pentium4 (starting from Centrino upto I3/I5/I7)
  • kernel-nrjQL-desktop-core2
  • kernel-nrjQL-desktop-core2-pae

  • New path of the Kernel folders for Mandriva and ROSA
    General INFO about the new kernel paths and also about the new proprietary kernel drivers
  • Before downloading and installing any kernel 3.7.8 flavour, you need to install the Required microcode firmware!
    Microcode firmwares for cpu AMD / INTEL updates
    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...
  • Notice for the users of MDV 2011!
    ABF build for 2011 is broken nowdays, when/if the 2011 build side will be fixed you'll find again the rpms.
    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...
    Once I succeeded to solve this ugly problem, installing the "dracut" version from RM2012 repositories into 2011

SUGGESTION for VMWare 9.0.1 or VMPlayer 5.0.1

If you are a VMWare user, you simply need to create a symlink, because now version.h has a different path.

The issue originates from a defect into the program that lays on the script:
vmware-modconfig to make his work assumes that "version.h" should be
/usr/src/linux-%version-%release/include/linux/
otherwise starting since kernel 3.7 his position is different
/usr/src/linux-%version-%release/include/generated/uapi/linux/

Now I have sent to build only 3 flavours, so I write below the needed commands for this 3 different kernels.

The commands must be executed in a konsole or teminal with root priviledges,
you must choose only the row/s related to the flavour/s that you have installed...

Does not work either.
Googling around I found other peple that were addressing the problem to the incapability of the kernel to load the Nvidia driver. So I booted in recovery mode and then launched startx. It looks like this is the case.
Attached is the log file generated by the startx command.

I don't know whether this is a matter for kernel or Nvidia developpers, But I guess that I'll have to wait for a while before being able to update the kernel from 3.7.6.

Thank you Nicco for your help

Can you suggest me some links with these discussions?

I can see kernel 3.7.9 changelog:
http://www.spinics.net/lists/kernel/msg1484688.html

but seems it still having none nvidia fix related


if you tell me which flavour/s do you want to install/try, I can prepare it/them for you, in a specific ABF folder, the old version of kernel 3.7.6 but with all the latest general improvments

I see that somebody solved the problem patching the driver.

The flavord I use are nrjql-desktop and laptop, but up to now I did not try to innstall either kernel 3.7.7 or 3.7.8 on my laptop that in any case, as my desktop, is based on a sandy bridge board with a quadro card (a 4000 M in this case). I use Rosa 2012.1 X 64

Thank you again for your help, Nicco.

Thank you again for your help, Nicco.
I think you can try these steps:
  • install a new kernel 3.7.8 flavour, then you immediately must
  • execute the vmware suggestion, i'm copying below, creating the symlink to /linux/version.h related to your flavour
  • you can reboot now, you need wait a few minute to start, if the screen will remain black even after over 5 minutes,
  • dont' worry, simply reset and reboot again and this time it should work (it should be necessary 2 reboots, not one)
SUGGESTION for VMWare 9.0.1 or VMPlayer 5.0.1
is valid also to solve other issues
VirtualBox and all dkms-xxx drivers, that need to be rebuilt at the first reboot
If you are a VMWare user, you simply need to create a symlink, because now version.h has a different path.

The issue originates from a defect into the program that lays on the script:
vmware-modconfig to make his work assumes that "version.h" should be
/usr/src/linux-%version-%release/include/linux/
otherwise starting since kernel 3.7 his position is different
/usr/src/linux-%version-%release/include/generated/uapi/linux/

Now I have sent to build only 3 flavours, so I write below the needed commands for this 3 different kernels.

The commands must be executed in a konsole or teminal with root priviledges,
you must choose only the row/s related to the flavour/s that you have installed...
for kernel-nrjQL-desktop-3.7.8-69

Code: Select all

ln -s /usr/src/linux-3.7.8-nrjQL-desktop-69rosa/include/generated/uapi/linux/version.h /usr/src/linux-3.7.8-nrjQL-desktop-69rosa/include/linux/version.h
for kernel-nrj-laptop-3.7.8-69

Code: Select all

ln -s /usr/src/linux-3.7.8-nrjQL-laptop-69rosa/include/generated/uapi/linux/version.h /usr/src/linux-3.7.8-nrjQL-laptop-69rosa/include/linux/version.h
for kernel-nrj-realtime-3.7.8-69

Code: Select all

ln -s /usr/src/linux-3.7.8-nrjQL-realtime-69rosa/include/generated/uapi/linux/version.h /usr/src/linux-3.7.8-nrjQL-realtime-69rosa/include/linux/version.h
for all other kernel flavours, simply you must replace the flavour names, for example, below the command for nrjQL-server

Code: Select all

ln -s /usr/src/linux-3.7.8-nrjQL-server-69rosa/include/generated/uapi/linux/version.h /usr/src/linux-3.7.8-nrjQL-server-69rosa/include/linux/version.h
