Kernel 3.0.69 for ROSA Marathon 2012.0 & Mandriva 2010 2011

Post by NicCo »

Monthly update for LTS Kernel 3.0 - March 2013 edition
THIS IS THE OFFICIAL MAINLINE KERNEL SERIES
Kernel 3.0.69 for ROSA MARATHON 2012, Mandriva 2010 and Mandriva 2011.0

All users of the 3.0 kernel series must upgrade.

This is prepared like the official one used mainly for ROSA Marathon 2012
this version is the prepared by MIB for Mandriva and ROSA development...

Since October 2012 you could find some differences and news also in this mainline serie,
from newer version 3.5.6 we released two new flavours and also their 32bit pae versions
  • kernel-nrj-laptop > It's optimized for laptop PCs, with a particular attention for cpu cooling and the battery lasting
  • kernel-nrj-realtime > It's optimized to have the lowest latency and so it's better for realtime apps like jackd, ecc...
This has been added with nrj model V2,
now since this 3.0.69 we have model V3, where it's easier to add some new patches placing in the patches-other folder

Builds
RPMS for MDV2011, RM2012 and ROSA 2012.1 can be built by ABF, while RPMS for MDV2010 are built in personal VM 2010.2

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

ImageIMPORTANT, READ!
  • 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 3.0.69 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 and 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

Re: Kernel 3.0.69 for ROSA Marathon 2012.0 & Mandriva 2010 2

Post by NicCo »

ROSA Marathon X1 is equipped with Kernel-nrj-desktop 3.0.69-1

There were reported some issues leading to rare but nasty kernel oops,
those were all related to BFQ I/O scheduler (v6)
so we are updating to a fixed kernel 3.0.69 in a newer release -2 & -69.2

So, we decided that's safer:

1> configure CFQ as the default I/O scheduler for all nrj kernels
leaving only kernel-nrj-realtime with BFQ enabled and defaulted

2> in the meanwhile, we updated the existing BFQ v6 to fixed v6r1
so we hope fixed kernel-nrj-realtime and all kernel-nrjQL flavours
BFQ:
now it has been updated to the fix release v6r1 (dated 11 May)

v6r1:
- Fix use-after-free of queues in __bfq_bfqq_expire(). It may happen that
a call to bfq_del_bfqq_busy() puts the last reference taken on a queue
and frees it. Subsequent accesses to that same queue would result in a
use-after-free. Make sure that a queue that has just been deleted from
busy is no more touched.
- Use the uninitialized_var() macro when needed. It may happen that a
variable is initialized in a function that is called by the function
that defined it. Use the uninitialized_var() macro in these cases.
kernel nrj flavours now they have both
BFQ present but not enabled, you can verify from:
CONFIG_DEFAULT_IOSCHED="cfq"

kernel nrjQL flavours have new v6r1
BFQ present and enabled as default, you can verify from:
CONFIG_DEFAULT_IOSCHED="bfq"
