Linux Kernel 3.2 RCX has Been Released To Test - Post Your Comments Here!

As far as i read in here things look fine, can wait to see it in the stable kernel repo :slight_smile:

The 3.2rc6 kernel is in factory (openSUSE 12.2 milestone0

kernel-desktop-3.2.rc6-1.1.x86_64.rpm 25-Dec-2011 20:42 38M Details

Kernel 3.2 rc6 is available in the Kernel/HEAD repostories (Index of /repositories/Kernel:/HEAD/standard).

I have been running 3.2 rc? for some time, and currently run 3.2rc6-3 on 12.1, 11.4 and 11.3. -rc6-3 is quite stable and performs well. Prior -rc’s, particularly -rc4-9 and the relatively short-lived -rc5 were somewhat dicey.

As for /factory kernels, I generally avoid these. I prefer to test the newer kernels via the -vanilla versions, and compiling new versions (via SAKC) if needed. (Note to self: remember to cleanout prior SAKC-compiled kernels).

The prior preload/preload-kmp-<version> packages seem to have finally gone by the wayside in the Kernel/HEAD repositories.

Kernel.org is at 3.2rc7. I am using SAKC to compile it and will report later. when the compile finishes

Well I have installed kernel-3.2-rc7 without any issues and it is working just fine for me. I think I loaded it on Monday 12-26-11 as I recall. There is yet another H Open Source Artricle for kernel 3.2 …

Kernel Log: Coming in 3.2 (Part 5) - Drivers - Update - The H Open Source: News and Features

Thank You,

That`s good news :smiley:

okay, under factory since 3.2x (also valid for the version in Kernel:Head) none of the 3.2x version is working here.
There’s 2 main troubles, the first one is that there’s no external usb keyboard available when the system has started ( the keyboard is working on the grub line) but not when I need to enter my passphrase to unlock the the crypted /

Then building the nivida 290.10 works, loading the module seems to be okay, but trying to run xorg give plenty of errors

ssh access is still okay, or push the power off button works too.

btw, if someone nows how we can access to this forum by nntp would be cool (I didn’t find that thread in nntp)

I read all the oS newsgroups via NNTP with Thunderbird. The newsgroup URL is

HaHa thanks Larry, I was looking at

I use forums.opensuse.org just fine, and I have this “group”.

Kernel 3.2-rc7-1.1 installed from Kernel/HEAD/Standard without incident. After using the -rc7-vanilla incarnations for several days, the /HEAD kernel is definitely worth the effort. As noted earlier, the 3.2-rc’s have had a few rough spots (that is what -rc’s are for!), and the latest is quite sound. Noted improvements in boot time, proc usage and power consumption, although I am investigating a few bumps in power management/CPU frequency management.

-rc7-1.1 installed on 12.1 and 11.4, 64-bit, and installed on 11.3 (32-bit). Remaining to be tested on 11.4 32-bit. (Sooner or later, I really must create a 12.1 32-bit !)

Kernel 3.2.0 Downloaded, Compiled and installed using SAKC is up and running

Well, as of today, kernel 3.2 has been released bringing to an end our beta testing of kernel 3.2. I did have one rc release that would not compile, but otherwise for me, it was pretty normal stuff culminating with a solid final release. As before, I am using the nVIDIA 64 bit proprietary video driver version 290.10 with success. I did compile the kernel using the sakc bash script. We will still accept any final remarks of course, but kernel 3.2 is no longer beta. Thanks to everyone who has made comments in this thread.

Thank You,

kernel 3.2.01 is now in the factory repos
