Linux 2.6.32-rc1

,----[ Quote ]
| It's been two weeks (and then some - but with last 
| week being LinuxCon and  Plumbers conf I extended it 
| by a few days), and as usual that means that the merge 
| window is all over and done with. 2.6.32-rc1 is out, 
| so give it a whirl.


Fat or Fit? The Penguin's Bulging Waistline

,----[Quote  ]
| On the other hand, "you can still make a build of 
| Linux that will fit on a floppy," blogger Robert 
| Pogson told LinuxInsider. "The kernel running on my 
| machine is:
| du --si /boot/vmlinuz-2.6.26-2-686
| 1.6M /boot/vmlinuz-2.6.26-2-686
| "Is that bloated? I think not," Pogson asserted. "With 
| that kernel, I also have 59 MB of drivers. I only load 
| what I need."



Kernel Log - Devtmpfs in 2.6.32, more discussion about DRBD, new stable kernels

,----[ Quote ]
| The development of Linux 2.6.32 is in full swing â
| although the integration of devtmpfs into the main
| development branch has caused considerable friction.
| The integration of DRBD, which already seemed certain,
| is also being debated again. X Server 7.5 is making
| progress as the developers release the first RC and
| several new drivers.


DRM Changes For Linux 2.6.32 Kernel

,----[ Quote ]
| David Airlie has just called for the first DRM pull
| request for the Linux 2.6.32 kernel. To no surprise,
| R600/700 3D support can be found within the Direct
| Rendering Manager code as with kernel mode-setting
| support for these newer ATI Radeon graphics cards.


KVM Virtualization Performance With Linux 2.6.31

,----[Quote  ]
| These test results are designed to give just a basic
| overview of the level of KVM virtualization performance
| in different areas. Eventually we will run a larger set
| of tests across different virtualization
| infrastructures.


Linux kernel 2.6.32: virtualization, power management and more drivers

,----[ Quote ]
| Less than a week after Linux kernel 2.6.31 was released, the kernel
| developers are beginning to submit changes and improvements across
| virtualization, power management, file systems and device driver
| code for the upcoming 2.6.32 version.
| When releasing the 2.6.31 kernel, maintainer Linus Torvalds said
| the amount of device driver code has been steadily increasing since
| 2.6.27, but 2.6.32 will continue to aggressively add in bug fixes
| and performance enhancements across the entire code base.


New, Updated Drivers Coming To Linux 2.6.32

,----[ Quote ]
| Over three dozen Linux staging drivers are mentioned, but there's a few
| interesting comments in particular. For instance, Google's Android drivers
| may end up being dropped from the staging tree within the Linux 2.6.32
| cycle. While Android uses Linux and Google is quite friendly with Linux
| and different open-source projects, the developers working on the upstream
| Android drivers aren't caring whether or not this code enters the mainline
| kernel. Instead these developers are just concerning themselves with
| running the drivers on the Linux 2.6.29 kernel they currently are using.
| If this continues to occur, the Android drivers will disappear from the
| staging tree. In a similar situation, Microsoft's Hyper-V drivers may end
| up getting dropped in the Linux 2.6.33 release.


Linux 2.6.32 To Get R600 KMS Along With 3D

,----[ Quote ]
| Additionally, this code provides firmware loading support for the
| r128/mga/radeon + Radeon KMS drivers, the latest Intel drm-next code, Radeon
| R100/200 KMS command stream checking, Radeon KMS TV-Out support, merged FB
| handling for all KMS drivers, and DMT timings + better HDMI EDID decoding.


KMS Page-Flipping Ioctl Ready For Linux 2.6.32

,----[ Quote ]
| Kristian HÃgsberg has announced that the work he and Jesse Barnes, Jakob
| Bornecrantz, and Chris Wilson have been working on for the past few months is
| now ready for prime-time action. This work is the mode-setting page-flip
| ioctl for the kernel DRM. What this work basically leads to is tear-free
| updating of the screen with low-latency page-flipping.

Version: GnuPG v1.4.9 (GNU/Linux)
