    Default Linux 2.6.25 Kernel (Finally) Released

    Phoronix: Linux 2.6.25 Kernel (Finally) Released

    It's coming a bit late but Linus Torvalds had released the Linux 2.6.25 kernel late last night. The Linux 2.6.25 kernel introduces new EXT4 file-system improvements, ACPI thermal regulation, LatencyTOP kernel support, enhanced process memory usage management, and real-time group scheduling are among the major additions...

    Hmm, fglrx 8.4 doesn't seem to want to build on it. No surprise there though.

    Finally. Will compile it after I get from Vegas this weekend. I don't expect fglrx to work, so I guess I will finally give radeonHD a try. Hopefully I can get the kernel to boot this time; so far the 2.6.24 kernel has been the only one to give me issues with my drivers and SATA controller.

    Yeah I'm sure there will be a quick fix/patch for fglrx within a day or two at most for 2.6.25. I'm running 2.6.25 now with radeonhd and it runs fine. Good luck.

    When is REISER4 going to be added to the mainstream kernel.

    ONE IS TIRED OF THE IDIOTS EXCUSES FOR NOT ADDING REISER4 TO THE KERNEL.

    ALL OF THEIR EXCUSES SUCK.

    *sigh*

    I just can't figure this thing out. Something changed with 2.6.24. All the kernels I compile end up with the same error; something about not being able to retrieve devices and it points to my drives. The 2.6.22s and 2.6.23s work just fine on the same system. Either the new kernels have problems with the SATA controller on the SB600 (which I have yet to hear about) or it has issues with my physical drives.

    Have a look at the netconsole-howto and post dmesgs and .configs!

    Will try doing that netconsole, as soon as I figure it out. Anyway, both 2.6.24 and 2.6.25 kernels do this; it gets stuck at this stage:
    Code:
    ata1.00: failed to IDENTIFY (I/O error, err_mask=0x4)
    ata2.00: failed to IDENTIFY (I/O error, err_mask=0x4)
    ... and just loops the same errors. Already tried fiddling with my SATA controller settings in BIOS from the default native IDE to AHCI to RAID, but to no avail. Trying to load Hardy produces the same errors as well. As I said, the 2.6.22 and 2.6.23 kernels work fine on this same system, and I have already tried compiling a full kernel with minimal configuration and compiling with my original .config from the Gutsy kernel.

    Found this. Seems to be the same error as mine. The user said he managed to fix it with a BIOS upgrade, but for me that is not an option due to the horrible BIOS revisions ASUS keeps dishing out.
