Kernel-vanilla-nrj? > let's try ASAP next kernels with NRJ!

Post by NicCo »

immagine ridotta %
yet another experiment... :) 8-)


Project name: kernel-vanilla-nrj?
Flavours nr.: there would be two > 'kernel-vanilla-nrj-desktop' and then also 'kernel-vanilla-nrj-laptop'

Devel Status: it's complete at about 100%

Availability: Complete! From ROSA Marathon to ROSA Fresh R1 and naturally also for OM cooker...

Expandibility:
we can prepare a lot of different kernels with the same engine, for example one dedicated to laptops

Goals: having the chance to try ASAP new kernels, also with full Preemption enabled "NRJ v4 mode",
in this way we can start trying the NRJ kernels much before, even up to two months earlier than usual,
we can also verify if some patch used in mainline featured kernel may cause regressions or unstability.

Kernel behaviour: like a vanilla plus a better multitasking and a better multimedia desktop experience!



ABF test: all the builds have been properly rebuilt

DOWNLOADS:

To install (add the repo for your distro / arch, then execute...)
# urpmi kernel-nrj-vanilla-devel-latest kernel-nrj-vanilla-latest


An example, to install 3.10 rc6 on a ROSA Fresh R1 i586

Code: Select all

I have installed 3.10 rc6, it installed fine, the reboot went ok, now I'm using it,
and so I have already an early NRJ flavour for the next 3.10 kernel series...

Right now, while I'm writing, here my outputs...

Post by NicCo »

^ UP ^
the main page of project has been updated: kernel name and path to install have changed...

now new kernels are two, will be find in this path
http://abf-downloads.rosalinux.ru/kerne ... epository/

build in progress... an example, to add repository for 3.10 on a ROSA Fresh R1 i586, you can use the command:

Code: Select all

urpmi.addmedia Kernels_3.10 http://abf-downloads.rosalinux.ru/kernels_3_10x_personal/repository/rosa2012.1/i586/main/release/
[/size]

to install, after having added the repo 3_10x for your distro and arch, you can use simply the proper metapackages

for kernel-vanilla-nrj-desktop

Code: Select all

# urpmi kernel-vanilla-nrj-desktop-devel-latest kernel-vanilla-nrj-desktop-latest  
for kernel-vanilla-nrj-laptop

Code: Select all

# urpmi kernel-vanilla-nrj-laptop-devel-latest kernel-vanilla-nrj-laptop-latest
