#Linux #Kernel 5.2-rc1 is out: lore.kernel.org/lkml/CAHk-=wgx…
"[…] Nothing particularly odd going on this merge window. […] […] Size-wise things look fairly normal. 12k+ Commits (plus another ~750 merge commits) is about normal for us by now. […] Go forth and test, Linus […] "

Kernel 5.1.3 installieren...

#Linux #Kernel


 


 
Public service reminder: You can easily install the latest mainline and stable #Linux versions on #Fedora with my #Kernel #Vanilla #Repositories: fedoraproject.org/wiki/Kernel_Va…

Right now it offers 5.0.17, 5.1.3, and a mainline snapshot that's close to what 5.2-rc1 will look like.

Side note: Durch #MDS dürfte der neue #Linux-#Kernel-Parameter "mitigations=" schnell in mehr Distros auftauchen. Mit ihm kann man die Schutztechniken für alle jüngst bekannt gewordenen Prozessor-Sicherheitslücken lahmlegen und so die Performance steigern.


 
#Linux #Kernel 5.1.1 is out.

IOW: Prepare for headlines like ```5.1 Gets Its First Point Release, It's Now Ready for Mass Adoption``` or ```5.1 is stable now```, which IMHO give quite a misleading impression of how the Linux development process and its versions numbers work.

#Linux #Kernel 5.1 is out: lore.kernel.org/lkml/CAHk-=whs… "[…] On the whole, 5.1 looks very normal with just over 13k commits (plus another 1k+ if you count merges). Which is pretty much our normal size these days. […]"


 
```[…] we believe that unikernels’ advantages represent the next natural evolution for Linux […] we posit that an upstreamable unikernel target is achievable from the #Linux #kernel […] demonstrate that some simple changes can bring dramatic performance advantages. […]```


 
Puhh, so, jetzt kann der #Linux #Kernel 5.1 kommen: Ich hab das Kernel-Log zu dieser Montag früh erwarteten Version jetzt endlich fertig und gerade zum Gegenlesen ins CMS eingecheckt. Bin spät dran diesmal, daher mussten diese Woche auch 3 eigentlich freie Tage dran glauben :-/

#Linux #kernel 5.1-rc7 is out, final a week from now: lore.kernel.org/lkml/CAHk-=whv…
"[…] But it's all pretty tiny. Plus about 30% of the patches are marked for stable, so on the whole it really does feel like 5.1 is on target for a regular release next weekend. […]"


 
"[…] there’s a downside to #XDP: because it processes packets before the normal #Linux #kernel network stack sees them, packets redirected or dropped are invisible to […] #tcpdump. […] we built a tcpdump replacement for XDP, xdpcap. We are open sourcing this tool […]"


 
#lkml #qotd from Linus: lore.kernel.org/lkml/CAHk-=wiV…
"[…] I absolutely abhor even the concept of building the #kernel as root, and I think it should be actively disallowed. […] So anybody who builds the kernel as root is doing something seriously wrong, in my opinion. […]" #Linux

Remember those in the #systemd wars that said "boot speed doesn't matter on servers"?

Here is one example from #lkml why they were wrong: #Microsoft is working on a #linux #kernel feature to reboot servers in <1s with the help of persistent memory (pmen): lore.kernel.org/lkml/201904201…

#Linux #kernel 5.1-rc6 is out: lore.kernel.org/lkml/CAHk-=wii…
"[…] rc6 is actually larger than I would have liked […] I'm not going to worry about it […] but more importantly, give it a whirl and kick the tires... […]"


 
The #panfrost DRM driver, supporting #Arm #Mali Midgard & Bifrost GPUs, hit #linux next and thus is should be part of #kernel 5.2 (expected mid July): git.kernel.org/pub/scm/linux/…

The corresponding OpenGL driver is in Mesa master and thus will be part of Mesa 19.1, expected late May.


 
#Linux #kernel 5.1-rc5 is out: lore.kernel.org/lkml/201904150…
"[…]We have changes all over, but not unseasonably many of them, and most of the ones here are very small. […] Nothing in here makes me feel uncomfortable about this release cycle so far. Knock wood. […]"


 
David is totally right, it just escaped my #linux next watch script and thus I didn't mention here it was slated for #kernel 5.2.

See here for details:

The #LIMA OpenGL driver, which support #ARM #Mali 400/450 GPUs, was merged into mesa master and thus will be part of 19.1: cgit.freedesktop.org/mesa/mesa/comm…
The corresponding DRM driver was added to #linux next earlier this month and thus is slated for #kernel 5.2:





 
The rewritten and modernized cirrus #drm driver hit #linux next (git.kernel.org/pub/scm/linux/…) and thus is slated for inclusion in #kernel 5.2.
"[…] single monster patch. But given that it does some pretty fundamental changes […] also reduces the code size by roughly 70% […]"


 
#Linux #kernel 5.1-rc4 is out lore.kernel.org/lkml/CAHk-=wid…
"[…]
Another week, another rc. Smaller than rc3, I'm happy to say. Nothing particularly big in here, just a number of small things all over. […]"


 
v2 of the #Panfrost DRM driver, which supports #ARM #Mali Midgard/Bifrost GPUs, was submitted for review to #Linux #kernel and #DRM mailing lists: lore.kernel.org/lkml/201904010…


 
The LIMA DRM driver, which support the #ARM #Mali 400/450 GPUs, has hit linux-next and thus is likely to get submitted for inclusion into #Linux #kernel 5.2 in a few weeks. git.kernel.org/pub/scm/linux/…

Mesa 3D driver can be found here before upstreamed: gitlab.freedesktop.org/lima/mesa


 
#Linux #kernel 5.1-rc3 is out: lore.kernel.org/lkml/CAHk-=wiH…
"[…] Nothing particularly unusual going on here. […] The rc3 release is bigger than normal, […] it's early enough in the rc series that it's not something I really worry about. Yet. […]"


 


 
Shortly after Herbert posted hist #ZINC patchset (see last post: ) Jason A. Donenfeld submitted a new #Wireguard for review which afaics uses a different ZINC codebase. lore.kernel.org/lkml/201903220…





 
Herbert Xu, #Linux #kernel Crypto API subsystem maintainer, recently submitted a variant of the # ZINC interface in "the interest of moving forward with #Wireguard […] This should allow the wireguard code itself to proceed. […]" lore.kernel.org/lkml/201903220…


 
#Linux #kernel 5.1-rc2 is out lore.kernel.org/lkml/CAHk-=wgg…
"""[…] Things look fairly normal, but honestly, rc2 is usually too early to tell. People haven't necessarily had time to notice problems yet. Which is just another way of saying "please test harder". […]"""


 
Der gestrige Vortrag wurde übrigens aufgezeichnet und sollte innerhalb weniger Wochen über die Webseite des @clt_news abrufbar sein – zumindest, wenn die mich nicht bestrafen, weil ich schamlos die schon großzügig bemesse Zeit überzogen habe… (aber nur in eine Pause)


 
#Linux #kernel 5.1-rc1 is out: lore.kernel.org/lkml/CAHk-=wj1…
"[…] everything is normal […] A somewhat recent development is how the tools/testing/ updates have been quite noticeable lately […] he documentation subdirectory is also quite noticeable. […] really stuff all over […]"
