Hi!

Thank you guys for the kernels and the download area.
No problem occured yet, but I'm still testing it before the installation on my main LS.

I quickly tried my sound card (plugged it... ;) ) with the oabi kernel, but it's not recognized ('aplay -l' finds no card).

Has something happened in the latest kernel with the network/disk stack?

I've gotten much higher performance from it than I did before. I have 2 NAS boxes and I was doing dd if=/dev/zero of=/mnt/server/test bs=1048576 count=8192, using an cifs mount

it wrote at approximately 22MB/sec.


It read the file back at 53MB/sec.

That's megabytes not bits.

That's a lot faster than it used to be.

dd side: LinkStation Pro, dest end: DNS-323.

----- Update -----

I went back to the old image to make sure I wasn't seeing things.

uImage_2.6.16.16-teralive110gpl4LSPro-mb_v6

Same commands above:

write:12.9MB/sec.
Read:6.1MB/sec.

I've repeated the tests a couple of times. Making sure there's a clean reboot between.... results:

uImage-2.6.16.57-lsp_oabi-dh_v6

Write: 24.5MB/sec
Read: 50.7MB/sec.


---- 2nd update

Bah!

cifs/smbfs module is not compiled in!!! Bah! It was writing to the same fs with the new image.

Any chance of getting cifs/smbfs? Never had much luck with NFS.

--- 3rd update

I read the readme and got the right one....... *sad face* Performance is back where it was when the cifs mounts actuall mounted :(

I was so excited.......

Hello,

as you can see in this thread
I've got problems with the truecrypt kernel module.

As I don't know how to get any further with this topic I'd appreciate to get some help from some kernel
experienced guys:

crosscompilation
there's a build.sh delivered with the truecrypt src that compiles the kernel module and the truecrypt binary.
I set up crosscompilation environment with mindbender's script on my ubuntu 7.10.
I know how to compile a kernel with that but how can tell build.sh to use the crosscompiler and not the one
that's delivered with ubuntu?

native compilation
I compiled the module natively with gcc-4.1.1
The gcc-3.4.4 compiled kernel doesn't really like that so I'll have to compile the module with gcc-3.4.4 too.
Does anyone have a gcc-3.4.4 toolchain for the LSPro(couldn't find one in the download area)?

Another idea is to compile the kernel natively with gcc-4.1.1 but I don't know if this is a good idea because I
maybe the old modules won't work with the new kernel and with no serial access this is pretty risky to try...

Maybe someone has already compiled the module in a proper format and can offer it in the download area?
Maybe someone uses the proper toolchain and can compile the module to offer it in the download area?

No matter how, I appreciate any help because this is driving me crazy(and my girlfriend already hates my Linkstation :cry: )

Regards,
ares

I'm a litte confused by all this xfs eabi/oabi trouble. Just to clarify:

When using kernel-2.6.16.57-lsp_eabi-dh_v3 I won't need to change rootfs from xfs to ext3 - correct?

No, an eabi (cross-compiled armel) kernel works fine with xfs root file systems.

(The oabi (native arm) kernels seem to have bad problems with xfs rootfs (but
other partions can be xfs). Change the rootfs to ext3 (this is really easy, using
EM mode) before using an oabi kernel,)

Finally, I found some time to test your last OABI build here (v6). It didn't work out-of-the-box again and I had to convert the rootfs partition to ext3 first as suggested above. After that, I could successfully boot the v6 kernel but I found out that I cannot access the main partition (sda6) which is also xfs. Everything I get when doing ls /mnt/disk1 is garbage like that:
Code:
o■CаЧG┴р ╟

Remounting /dev/sda6 in r/o and running xfs_check gave a huge log of errors like that:
Code:
dir 128 bad size in entry at 8
root directory 128 has .. 8389632
dir 131 size is 6, should be 8
dir 131 entry .. bad inode number 2538872576
dir 132 bad size in entry at 8
dir 143 bad size in entry at 8
dir 152 bad size in entry at 8
dir 154 bad size in entry at 8
dir 160 bad size in entry at 8
dir 161 bad size in entry at 8
dir 172 bad size in entry at 8
dir 173 size is 6, should be 8
dir 177 bad size in entry at 8
dir 179 bad size in entry at 8
dir 181 bad size in entry at 8
dir 182 bad size in entry at 8
dir 5474 bad size in entry at 8
dir 5475 bad size in entry at 8
dir 5475 entry .. bad inode number 2129791744
dir 5476 size is 6, should be 8
dir 5477 entry                                                  bad inode number 3590848656
... and so on

Looks like the xfs module is totally broken so no surprise that OABI builds don't even boot when the rootfs is xfs.

Any ideas what could it be? Wrong structure packing? Wrong alignment?

if we would know what exactly is the problem we would have released a kernel before and packaged it up with FreeLink/Openlink/foonas.

guys, i would start testing the 2.6.25-rc1 kernel. by testing this kernel we would help getting better support in the mainline kernel. the new kernel is the one where we can change things for the future.

I can use iptables on eabi kernel.

upgrade gcc version.

get iptabls source.
$wget http://www.netfilter.org/projects/iptab ... .8.tar.bz2

add this sentence to the first line in 'Makefile'.
# eabi compile option
CC = gcc -mabi=aapcs-linux

$make install

reboot system.
check iptales command.

$iptables -L


I am not good at English, sorry.

iptables modules need kernel modules include netfilter option.
edit config using menuconfing before comple kernel.

>network>netfilter(enable)>all option(<M>modules)

save kernel config and kernel compile.

install kernel image and kernel modules.

I only add 'CC = gcc -mabi=aapcs-linux' to the first line.

Code:

# uncomment this to disable IPv6 support

I am using duncan_h ~ kernel-2.6.16.57-lsp_eabi-dh_v3. I am not sure this version has netfilter option or not.
What kernel are you using now?

@duncan_h
I checked dmik ftp site. It has a new V4 eabi kernel.
Any news in this Kernel?
