    Kernel Log: Coming in 3.3 (Part 1) - Networking - The H Open Source: News and Features

    Finally, the first article of many at the H Open Source just for the new kernel 3.3, now with Networking first up for discussion.

    Resuming Kernel 3.3 testing after a brief interruption, I have encountered a roadblock. While I have compiled kernels from the kernel.org source(s), I generally test from the Kernel/HEAD and Kernel/vanilla repositories. Apparently, Kernel/vanilla has gone missing from Index of /repositories/Kernel:. (Actually, the directory entry remains, but the repository is empty). Further, Kernel/linux-next is similarly absent.

    A quick perusal of openSUSE Kernel Resources and into the "vanilla" and "linux-next" branches reveals no new information.

    Last 3.3 kernel (3.3rc1-1) crashes and burns quite quickly on Intel graphics, and dies somewhat slower with Radeon. While I can easily compile a 3.3rc1 on the Intel platform, the much older and slower Radeon would take an unreasonable amount of time. However, it appears that kernel.org has nothing newer than the orphaned 3.3rc1-vanilla kernel available.

    Have I missed the memo ?

    Well tonight I have installed kernel 3.3-rc2 without error. Everything is working fine. I have not seen a new post at the H Online yet for rc2, but I will keep looking. http://www.kernel.org/pub/linux/kern....3-rc2.tar.bz2

    I also have installed the latest nVIDIA beta driver 295.17 and I had to make the same fix required by all to get the driver to compile:

    Code:
    cd /lib/modules/3.3.0-rc2-0.9-desktop/source/arch/x86/include ; sudo cp generated/asm/*.h ./asm
    or

    Code:
    cd /lib/modules/<kernel name>/source/arch/x86/include ; sudo cp generated/asm/*.h ./asm
    So far, 295.17 is working better than 295.09 which had a problem with KDE for some reason. You can get the latest 64 bit nVIDIA driver this way using terminal:

    Code:
    cd ~/Downloads ; wget ftp://download.nvidia.com/XFree86/Linux-x86_64/295.17/NVIDIA-Linux-x86_64-295.17.run

    I last pulled 3.3rc1 -vanilla from the now-empty Index of /repositories/Kernel:/vanilla repositories on 2012.01.20, so this brief interval may qualify as "some time".

    As for "in standard",

    Index of /repositories/Kernel:/HEAD/standard has kernel 3.2.0-7.3 (all flavors)

    Index of /repositories/Kernel:/openSUSE-12.1/standard contains kernel 3.1.9-6.1 (all flavors)

    Index of /repositories/Kernel:/stable/standard contains kernel 3.2.2-2.1 (all flavors)

    All above references current as of this writing. Is there a fourth (or further) "standard" repository that I should look for kernel 3.3 ?

    Was there any announcement, correspondence or other communications indicating such changes ? Apparently, openSUSE Kernel Resources, Branch info and Packages are no longer current.

    Well I sure do not know the answer to your question except that the start of the new year saw a couple of things dropped like our weekly news release, so not keeping up with kernels may be another dropped ball perhaps. Since you can do the same on your own, I am not sure what to say here that really matters.

    Does anyone know if the ../stable/standard/ repo has updated to gcc46? Last time I tried it nvidia had to be compiled with gcc45.

    I have not recently had an issue compiling in the nVIDIA driver due to a gcc version problem, neither in openSUSE 11.4 or in 12.1. Perhaps more information might be helpful to understand what is wrong.

    So I have installed kernel-3.3-rc3 tonight and it is working just fine. I have also installed the nVIDIA driver 295.17 which still requires the fix mentioned before for it to compile. I am now playing around with DKMS and using it to load the nVIDIA driver and I have that working under openSUSE 11.4 just fine using my new bash utility I call "S.A.N.D.I. - SuSE Automated NVIDIA Driver Installer" using "DKMS - Dynamic Kernel Module Support for the nVIDIA Video Driver". I will be releasing it shortly but I am having issues with DKMS and openSUSE 12.1 for now, but I am working to solve that problem.

    Thank You,
