Kernel 3.7.7 for ROSA 2012.0 / 2012.1 & Mdv 2010 / 2011

Post by NicCo »


Kernel 3.7.7 for ROSA MARATHON 2012, ROSA Desktop.Fresh 2012 (2012.1) and Mandriva 2010, MDV2011.0
This is the final release of kernel 3.7.7-1, this time is prepared with a new improved source model, called NRJ V4,
for this 3.7.7 version now we have built only 3 flavours: nrj-desktop, nrj-realtime, nrj-laptop

I tested it in my Fresh 2012 x64 and for me is ok, but now you too can start your testing and send your feedback.

Kernel 3.7.7 by MIB
This is prepared like the official one used for ROSA Desktop.Fresh 2012
this version is the prepared by MIB for Mandriva and ROSA development

Since October you could find some differences and news also in this mainline serie,
the reason it that we are in full development mode for ROSA 2012.1:
from version 3.5.6 we will release 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...

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

Testing status:
in Mandriva 2010.2 and ROSA 2012.1, 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 3.7.7 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

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...
for kernel-nrj-desktop-3.7.7-1

Code: Select all

ln -s /usr/src/linux-3.7.7-nrj-desktop-1rosa/include/generated/uapi/linux/version.h /usr/src/linux-3.7.7-nrj-desktop-1rosa/include/linux/version.h
for kernel-nrj-laptop-3.7.7-1

Code: Select all

ln -s /usr/src/linux-3.7.7-nrj-laptop-1rosa/include/generated/uapi/linux/version.h /usr/src/linux-3.7.7-nrj-laptop-1rosa/include/linux/version.h
for kernel-nrj-realtime-3.7.5-1

Code: Select all

ln -s /usr/src/linux-3.7.7-nrj-realtime-1rosa/include/generated/uapi/linux/version.h /usr/src/linux-3.7.7-nrj-realtime-1rosa/include/linux/version.h
for all other kernel flavours, simply you must replace the flavour names, for example, below the command for kernel-server

Code: Select all

ln -s /usr/src/linux-3.7.7-server-1rosa/include/generated/uapi/linux/version.h /usr/src/linux-3.7.7-server-1rosa/include/linux/version.h

Installato kernel 3.7.7 e link simbolico per wmware.
Installazione senza alcun problema , ma non riesco a connettermi.
Mi risponde:

Code: Select all

 Interfaccia di rete non connessa nell'icona della barra.
Con il Kernel 3.7.6 invece tutto OK .
Mi risponde:

Code: Select all

Interfaccia di rete connesso sempre nell'icona della barra 

e la connessione funziona regolarmente
NicCo cosa succede ?

Installato su due PC,
adesso anche in uno con la scheda madre uguale alla tua:
Asus P8H77-V

a me la rete appare regolarmente, e navigo perfettamente,
il problema non è nel kernel!

Si sarà scaricato od installato male: in questi casi, meglio disinstallarlo, ed installarlo nuovamente,
anche se io ti consiglierei di installare la versione nrjQL, adesso c'è il BFQ v6, e va ancora meglio...

Rebuild in progress...
In about 4 hours since now, there should be 4 flavours:
-desktop, -realtime, -laptop, -netbook

this for mainline kernel and for nrjQL both
