zen-sources-2.6.31-r2 with tuxonice

Today I patched the  brand new zen-sources-2.6.31-r2 with tuxonice. Again it required the modified tuxonice patch of my last ebuild.

Suspend to RAM works at least on my Dell Precison M65 as well as suspend to disk does.

Download the zen-sources 2.6.31-zen2 patch here: zen-sources.org. Then apply the patch to vanilla kernel sources. Afterwards download my modified tuxonice patch from here: current-tuxonice-for-2.6.31-zen1.patch-20090911-v1.bz2 (977). Then apply it.

For Gentoo users there is a more easy way: Download my modified overlay (including the patches) from zen-sources-toi-2.6.31-r2.tar.bz2 (926) and extract it in /usr/local/portage. Be sure to include the following line in your /etc/make.conf:

PORTDIR_OVERLAY=”/usr/local/portage”

Then emerge zen-sources-toi and buld the kernel as you wish.

Tuxonice is not officially supported in zen-sources. So If you’re using the files above, don’t report any bugs to zen-sources.org. You are on your own.

For my Precision M65 I used the following kernel config: kconfig_zen-sources-toi-2.6.31-r2-precision_m65 (847)

All Information regarding the iwl3945 driver, the aha152x pcmcia scsi card and cpu undervolting in my last post on zen-sources-toi still apply to this version.

For more information on the zen-sources patchset see www.zen-sources.org.

zen-sources-2.6.31-r1 with tuxonice

Today I patched the  new zen-sources-2.6.31-r1 with tuxonice. This time it was a bit more complicated since the two patches are conflicting. So I modified the tuxonice patch to apply cleanly over the zen-kernel.

Suspend to RAM works at least on my Dell Precison M65 as well as suspend to disk does.

Download the zen-sources 2.6.31-zen1 patch here: zen-sources.org. Then apply the patch to vanilla kernel sources. Afterwards download my modified tuxonice patch from here: current-tuxonice-for-2.6.31-zen1.patch-20090911-v1.bz2 (977). Then apply it.

For Gentoo users there is a more easy way: Download my modified overlay (including the patches) from zen-sources-toi-2.6.31-r1.tar.bz2 (906) and extract it in /usr/local/portage. Be sure to include the following line in your /etc/make.conf:

PORTDIR_OVERLAY=”/usr/local/portage”

Then emerge zen-sources-toi and buld the kernel as you wish.

To work around the black screen problem with some nvidia-drivers versions occuring with 2.6.30 kernels, discussed at gentoo forums, I had to upgrade to nvidia-drivers-190.18. Most probably this problem persists with 2.6.31. Strangely the issue did only occur on my Precision M65 with a Quadro FX350M. It did not occur with the Quadro FX3400 in my Desktop PC, Nvidia-drivers-185.18.31 are running there without any problems.

Tuxonice is not officially supported in zen-sources. So If you’re using the files above, don’t report any bugs to zen-sources.org. You are on your own.

For my Precision M65 I used the following kernel config: kconfig_zen-sources-toi-2.6.31.1-precision_m64.zip (814)

If you want to use all channels with the iwl3945 driver change the line static char *ieee80211_regdom = “US”; to static char *ieee80211_regdom = “JP”; in the file net/wireless/reg.c.

If you also own of those old 16 Bit Adaptec pcmcia scsi cards using the aha152x_cs module you might want to enable it also for 64 Bit kernels. It was masked for 64 Bit kernels somewhere before 2.6.13. I was unable to find out the reason for this so I tried to compile the module. When I insert the card, the module loads properly. Since the drive I could test it with, is currently attached to another box and in use, I can´t try it out for the moment. Once I tried I´ll keep you updated.

To enable the driver remove the line

depends on !64BIT

in the config PCMCIA_AHA152X section in /usr/src/linux/drivers/scsi/pcmcia/Kconfig and select the module in menuconfig.

Addon: I tried a SCSI cdrom with this and it works perfectly. I just filed a bug on this on bugzilla.kernel.org and hope for the driver being unmasked for future  64 Bit kernels.

If you are using this kernel on a notebook with i.e. a Core2 CPU you might be interesting to undervolt your CPU to save power and to produce less heat (keeps the fan off longer). This works like a charm on my M65. Information on this topic can be found here: aldeby.org. The linux-pch patch mentioned there is already included in zen-sources, thus you only have to perform the userspace part begnning at (3).

For image compression in tuxonice include Compressor lzo in your suspend2.conf file.

Sadly the iptables mirror target I published here does not work anymore with the 2.6.31 kernel. A newer version will be available soon on mygnu.de.

zen-sources-2.6.30-r4 with tuxonice

Today I patched the brand new zen-sources-2.6.30-r4 with tuxonice. This was necessary since I need tuxonice on my notebook for suspend modes and tuxonice has been removed permanently from zen-sources. Suspend to RAM works at least on my Dell Precison M65 as well as suspend to disk does.

I recommend using this version over using the r3-version, because it fixes the root exploit vulnerability mentioned on www.linux-magazine.com.

Download the zen-sources 2.6.30-zen4 patch here: zen-sources.org Then apply the patch to vanilla kernel sources. Afterwards download the tuxonice patch from http://www.tuxonice.net/downloads/all/current-tuxonice-for-2.6.30.patch-20090620-v1.bz2 and apply it.

For Gentoo users there is a more easy way:

Download my modified overlay (including the patches) from zen-sources-toi-2.6.30-r4 overlay (828) and extract it in /usr/local/portage. Be sure to include the following line in your /etc/make.conf:

PORTDIR_OVERLAY="/usr/local/portage"

Then emerge zen-sources-toi and buld the kernel as you wish.

To work around the black screen problem with some nvidia-drivers versions, discussed at gentoo forums, I had to upgrade to nvidia-drivers-190.18. Strangely the issue does only occur on my Precision M65 with a Quadro FX350M.

For my Precision M65 I used the following kernel config: kconfig-precision_m65-zen-sources-toi-2.6.30-r4 (815)

If you want to use all channels with the iwl3945 driver change the line

static char *ieee80211_regdom = “US”;

to

static char *ieee80211_regdom = “JP”;

in the file net/wireless/reg.c.

zen-sources-2.6.30-r3 with tuxonice

Today I managed to patch the brand new zen-sources-2.6.30-r3 with tuxonice. This was necessary since I need tuxonice on my notebook for suspend modes and tuxonice has been removed permanently from zen-sources. Suspend to RAM works at least on my Dell Precison M65 as well as suspend to disk does.

Download the zen-sources 2.6.30-zen3 patch here: zen-sources.org Then apply the patch to the vanilla kernel sources available from kernel.org. Afterwards download the tuxonice patch from http://www.tuxonice.net/downloads/all/current-tuxonice-for-2.6.30.patch-20090620-v1.bz2 and apply it to the kernel sources with the zen patchset already applied.

For Gentoo users there is a more easy way:

Download my modified overlay  (including the patches) from zen-sources-toi-2.6.30-r3 overlay (629) and extract it in /usr/local/portage. Be sure to include the following line in your /etc/make.conf:

PORTDIR_OVERLAY="/usr/local/portage"

Then emerge zen-sources-toi and continue with building the kernel as you wish.

zen-sources-2.6.29-r3 with tuxonice

Some days ago Thorsten wrote TuxOnIce is broken in 2.6.29-zen1. Well, I wanted to have a 2.6.29 kernel, because the iwl3945 driver in 2.6.29 works the first time with a useable speed for me.  So I no longer need the hack for the ipw3945 driver I published on ipw3945 unter linux-kernel 2.6.27.

Today I managed to patch the brand new zen-sources-2.6.29-r3 with tuxonice. This was necessary since I need tuxonice on my notebook and tuxonice has been removed permanently from zen-sources. Suspend to RAM works at least on my Dell Precison M65 as well as suspend to disk does.

Since 2.6.29-zen3 has not been released as patch yet, you may download the patch I created from git here: Zen-Sources 2.6.29-r3 patch (662) Then apply the patch to the vanilla kernel sources available from kernel.org. Afterwards download the tuxonice patch from http://www.tuxonice.net/downloads/all/tuxonice-3.0-for-2.6.29.patch.bz2 and apply it to the kernel sources with the zen patchset already applied.

For Gentoo users there is a more easy way:

Download my modified overlay  (including the patches) from zen-sources-toi-2.6.29-r3.tar.bz2 (768) and extract it in /usr/local/portage. Be sure to include the following line in your /etc/make.conf:

PORTDIR_OVERLAY="/usr/local/portage"

Then emerge zen-sources-toi and buld the kernel as you wish.

The files above are not from an official zen release. Tuxonice is not officially supported in zen-sources. So If you’re using the files above, don’t report any bugs to zen-sources.org.

For my Precision M65 I used the following kernel config: .config.zip (725)

If you want to use all channels with the iwl3945 driver change the line

static char *ieee80211_regdom = “US”;

to

static char *ieee80211_regdom = “JP”;

in the file net/wireless/reg.c.
