Kernel 3.8.12 nrjQL for ROSA 2012 2012.1 MDV2010 2011 cooker

Post by NicCo »


Kernel 3.8.12 QL (Quantum Leap) for ROSA MARATHON 2012, ROSA Desktop 2012 (2012.1) and Mandriva 2010, MDV2011.0, Cooker
Actually, Linux kernel 3.8.12 includes mostly the same changes as Linux 3.9.1 kernel...
INFO about the SRPM build possibilities and rpm availability:
For ROSA Marathon we'll build Kernels LTS: 3.0, 3.2, 3.4, and all the latest kernels up to the 3.8 series
For ROSA Fresh we are building all Kernel versions starting only from the 3.6 to the most recent series
For "Cooker" we are building all Kernel versions starting only from the 3.8 to the most recent series
For old distros Mandriva 2010 and 2011, we are maintaining build compatibility: you can also rebuild,
but we CANNOT prepare the rpms for You, as we have no chance to build with ABF or in our own PCs
Available kernel flavours are: nrjQL-desktop
other flavours will follow: nrjQl-realtime, nrjQL-laptop, nrjQL-netbook, nrjQL-server

We have tested: VMWare 9.0.2, VMPlayer 5.0.2, VirtualBox 4.2.8: are OK with 3.8

I have added 'experimental' ZSwap, please, test this new feature!
INFO : > zswap: compressed swap caching > Zswap: Compressed Swap Caching For Linux

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 3.8.12 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 3.8.12 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

    You can also get the wished SRPM and make a local rebuild for your own old Mandriva 2010 or 2011

Re: Kernel 3.8.12 nrjQL for ROSA 2012 2012.1 MDV2010 2011 co

Post by NicCo »

There were reported some issues leading to rare but nasty kernel oops,
these problems are caused mainly by new entry ZSwap, few by BFQ v6:
so we updated and fixed the kernel 3.8.12 in a newer release -2 & -69.2

ZSwap:
was removed from everywhere
- patch has been moved in /broken
- zswap removed from defconfigs



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"
