No, not tmpfs but aufs.

Subject aufs5 GIT release (v5.{8,9,10})
From J. R. OkajimaAdd
Date Today 16:21
I'm back.
Thanks for your patience and sorry for you inconvenient.
Also I appriciate PB who has made his aufs patch for v5.{8,9,10}.
I hope I can keep my development pace as I had.

o news
- As previously announced, aufs4.19--aufs5.3 has ended.
The new development base is aufs5.4.3. Not aufs5.4, because NFSv3 ACL
is broken in linux-v5.4. (aufs5.4 is still supported)
- Since v5.8, proc_mounts.patch in aufs5-standalone.git became unnecessary.
- linux-v5.10 has removed an internal function 'set_fs()' (on some
architectures), and aufs had to follow that change. Also aufs removed
its f_op->read() and ->write() functions.


J. R. Okajima

----------------------------------------
- aufs5-linux.git#aufs5.4..aufs5.7

@peebee

Great news! :)

Could you please also post a link for downloading your new aufs5 patch set for kernel 5.10.4?
Is this a fully functional patch set?

Thank you.

Apparently something has changed in the kernel source for 5.10. When booting 5.10.0-rc7, I got a black screen right after starting udev and the only recourse was a hard shutdown. This has never happened with the 5.9 series up to 5.9.12. I was able to get the screen back with "nomodeset" on the command line, but it's unusable as X won't start.

The problem turned out to be my AMD graphics card and the fix that worked for me is putting the following on the command line:

Code: Select all

amdgpu.dc=0
Hopefully this will help someone else with AMD graphics.
I am getting exactly the same behavior with my last generation Lenovo IdeaPad with AMD graphics card, with Blaze's latest kernel Porteus Kernel Builder (Post by Blaze #80754)
Thank you for your fix, roadie, which worked in my case as well! :)
cad,
I'm glad it's helped someone, though I won't claim any credit as it's an acorn this blind pig dug up on the interweb.

Great! :)
In previous posts, you mentioned you used "10.2.0-x86_64" as compiler for kernel 5.10.x.
Where can I download it? Is there a Porteus devel module (05-devel.xzm) compatible with kernel 5.10.4 that I can download?
I would like to start experimenting with kernel 5.10.4 as soon as possible, so as to fix my laptop's ELAN touchpad problem (it is not being recognized).
First, I would like to try setting CONFIG_PINCTRL_AMD=y - as suggested by beny here: Porteus 5.0 RC2 bug reports (Post by beny #80831) It is compiled as a module (CONFIG_PINCTRL_AMD=m) in your latest kernel of Jan 1.
(I tried loading manually pinctrl-amd.ko and elan-i2c.ko, but the ELAN touchpad still does not work.) Then, if that does not work, I will try other things, until I get it to work.
Once I get the Lenovo IdeaPad's touchpad to work, I'll post results in the "Porteus 5.0 RC2 bug reports" section so that changes can be made to the official Porteus kernel accordingly, if approved.
So, now that a suitable aufs5 patch set for 5.10.4 is available, I need a compatible compiler (05-devel.xzm module?) to compile it. Can you help?

Thank you.

cad,

With the AMD machines, CONFIG_PINCTRL_AMD must be set, though I set it as a module rather than builtin. The last config I looked at from a kernel that Blaze compiled had it set. There are also a few hotplug options that have to be set and might be the reason the kernel isn't working for you. There are a few posts between myself and Blaze that sum up the needed changes. I'll dig through my reminders to see what else is needed.

As I mentioned in another post, I'm surprised that Blaze's kernel isn't working, but I also remember a post in which Blaze mentioned using other config files, so probably some config settings have been changed. For compiling, I use the 05-devel.xzm that's built for the Porteus version I'm using, the 5.0-rc2 is available here:

Blaze,
What about the hotplug settings? My touchpad would not work without these:

Code: Select all

CONFIG_X86_AMD_PLATFORM_DEVICE=y
CONFIG_HOTPLUG_CPU=y

CONFIG_ARCH_ENABLE_MEMORY_HOTPLUG=y
CONFIG_ACPI_HOTPLUG_CPU=y
CONFIG_ACPI_HOTPLUG_MEMORY=y

CONFIG_HOTPLUG_PCI_CPCI=y
CONFIG_HOTPLUG_PCI_CPCI_ZT5550=m
CONFIG_HOTPLUG_PCI_CPCI_GENERIC=m
CONFIG_HOTPLUG_PCI_SHPC=y
CONFIG_HOTPLUG_SMT=y
CONFIG_MEMORY_HOTPLUG=y
CONFIG_MEMORY_HOTPLUG_SPARSE=y


CONFIG_I2C_DESIGNWARE_CORE=y
CONFIG_I2C_DESIGNWARE_SLAVE=y
CONFIG_I2C_DESIGNWARE_PLATFORM=y
I'm not sure about the designware settings, but I've seen them mentioned for the Lenova machines and they do no harm for mine.


This one is interesting as I've seen it mentioned in connection with Lenova touchpads and I see you have it set in your config.

Code: Select all

CONFIG_TOUCHSCREEN_ELAN=m

Some progress was made by using a Blaze kernel with CONFIG_PINCTRL_AMD=y (compiled into the kernel, not as a module); please see post here:
viewtopic.php?p=80842#p80842
Latest Blaze kernel has it compiled as a module.
Thank you for confirming that using the 05-devel.xzm from 5.0-rc2 is OK. So, I'm all set now for tinkering with the new kernel! :)
Please let me know if you find your relevant reminder notes...

roadie, now I compile kernel 5.10.4 with official aufs patch. I don't see you post, but I tweaked .config with options at my look :magic:

I use my config >>> https://gofile.io/d/qPUeXc or https://pastebin.ubuntu.com/p/DVNZhGvM5p/ (is the same .config)
