Kernel nrjQL 3.10.1 for ROSA 2012 2012.1 & OM 2013 cooker

Kernel 3.10.1 QL (Quantum Leap) for ROSA MARATHON 2012, ROSA Desktop 2012 (2012.1) and Mandriva 2010, MDV2011.0, Cooker
Image
To check the build status from ABF (in realtime)
https://abf.rosalinux.ru/kernels_3_10x/ ... uild_lists


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 3.10 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
General INFO about the new project - Read carefully!
nrj >>> nrjQL, the Next Kernel 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 3.10.1 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

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 3.10.1 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

Solutions for Kernels 3.10 with proprietary drivers and some common apps
  • Testing proprietary drivers (ATI and NVidia) for kernel 3.10 series
    now these drivers are available only for ROSA Fresh 2012.1...
  • How to use VMWare products

ATI fglrx 13.6 drivers with the proper patches for Kernel 3.10 serie
SOURCE: http://forum.rosalab.ru/viewtopic.php?f ... 252#p18397

i586

urpmi.addmedia nvidia-latest --update http://abf-downloads.rosalinux.ru/akdengi_personal/repository/rosa2012.1/x86_64/nvidia/release/


For VMWare 9.0.2, VMPlayer 5.0.2 with Kernel 3.10
here the solution: > http://mib.pianetalinux.org/MIB/rosa201 ... -kernel310
download the two tar files fixed by us
>>> http://mib.pianetalinux.org/MIB/rosa201 ... mblock.tar
>>> http://mib.pianetalinux.org/MIB/rosa201 ... /vmnet.tar

from root replace the two existing files with the fixed ones

Code: Select all

/usr/lib/vmware/modules/source/
now vmware can rebuild its modules with all kernels 3.10!

to manually force vmware modules rebuild you can execute

Code: Select all

vmware-modconfig --install-all
or, if from a kde or gnome terminal

Code: Select all

vmware-modconfig --install-all --console

La versione realtime si installa e sembra funzionare egregiamente, anche come host VmWare (dopo opportune patch per permettere la compilazione dei moduli).
Anche il supporto di UVD nelle radeon più recenti sembra essere attivo;
dal mio dmesg:
[drm] UVD initialized successfully.
[drm] ib test on ring 0 succeeded in 0 usecs
[drm] ib test on ring 3 succeeded in 0 usecs
[drm] ib test on ring 5 succeeded

Will the proprietary drivers (ATI and NVidia) for kernel 3.10 series ever be available for cooker or OpenMandriva 2013 LX?
Thanks,

I''ll try to update my project folder with kernel drivers, so you can try and test new drivers with new kernels,
naturally if testing will be positive, then 3.10 and these new drivers might be also pushed to official cooker
Drivers for new kernels >>> http://abf.rosalinux.ru/downloads/kerne ... epository/
In this new folder, we'll store some important driver suited for new kernels

Which are the most important drivers for your needs to test? We can start from these...

For me I have a computer with nvidia GEforce 6150 onboard graphics so the 304.88 is, I believe, the latest that works with this hardware.
Thanks,
