[Testing Update i686] 2018-12-01 - Kernels, systemd

#1

After a little break to recover from the last update we can start again.

Things to watch are the updated systemd and new kernels.

There are supposed to be “important fixes” in these kernels so this might want a quicker turnaround to x32-stable.


Available kernels

Series Version PAE
linux316 3.16.61 No
linux318 3.18.128 No
linux44 4.4.166 No
linux49 4.9.142 No
linux414 4.14.85 No
linux419 4.19.6 Yes

Current difference to x32-stable

This thread will track updates to x32-testing as they are snapped over from x32-unstable
This post has a full difference to x32-stable, updates will be posted below as they occur.

Full list is here.


Any problems?

  • No issues, everything went smoothly
  • Yes there was an issue. I was able to resolve it myself. (Please post your solution)
  • Yes I am currently experiencing an issue due to the update. (Please post about it)

Is x32-testing ready to be moved to x32-stable?

This will inform the snap process; there is no set threshold.

Please vote on the “is it ready yet?” poll but only when you feel this set is tested enough, and has a sufficient number of changes compared to x32-stable. Do keep in mind that x32-stable updates should be less frequent than x32-testing so not every testing update set should need to be moved over.

  • No or Not yet
  • Yes, x32-testing should be snapped to x32-stable at this point
  • Other (post)

That’s all I know. I read it somewhere…

300+ MB update through the GUI went OK for Cinnamon on baytrail 2-in-1. First couple of minutes after reboot were sluggish, but now all seems fine on my system, YMMV. I will leave it running over night…


#7

More kernel updates. I’m thinking a stable snap would be good sometime soon.

Looks like pamac 7.3.1-4 is still having issues. Same thing as with pamac 7.3.1-1.


#10

I think this is a known Pamac issue; there are similar reports in the 64-bit stable update thread…


#11

…running ok on Gnome for me so maybe just us 32’s now!!!


#12

Hi. Looking again at the 32 bit kernel without PAE support. I’m trying to compile it with out the PAE and I set the config file as:

CONFIG_NO_HIGHMEN=y
# CONFIG_HIGHMEN64G is not set
# CONFIG_VMSPLIT_3G is not set
CONFIG_VMSPLIT_1G=y
# CONFIG_HIGHMEN is not set
# CONFIG_X86_PAE is not set

These are the differences with the original config from source. Is that correct to config a kernel without PAE support for a 1Gb RAm device? Do I need some additional configuration on the config file to avoid the PAE support on my kernel configuration?

Thanks in advance.


#13

Look at the linux414 project as a reference. You know that 4.14 boots on your system so set the HIGHMEM parameters to match 4.14.

My version of 4.14 shows the highmem set to 4G as follows

# CONFIG_NOHIGHMEM is not set
CONFIG_HIGHMEM4G=y
# CONFIG_HIGHMEM64G is not set
CONFIG_PAGE_OFFSET=0xC0000000
CONFIG_HIGHMEM=y

You do want to disable the CONFIG_X86_PAE (is not set) as you have shown.

Of course it is dangerous to edit the config files. There could be other CONFIG_ dependencies that are not obvious. The preferred method would be to edit the HIGHMEM settings using menuconfig (or equivalent).
You can invoke menuconfig by uncommenting make menuconfig in the PKGBUILD.
To find the HIGHMEM options type ‘/HIGHMEM’ and < Enter >.
menuconfig will list the matches, scroll down and type the number corresponding to the CONFIG_ option.

To make the change permanent, you’ll need to retrieve .config from the build directory and copy it over config in the PKGBUILD directory.

@jonathon this may need it’s own topic!
