Andrew Morton: Linux 2.6.19-rc4-mm1

Oct 31, 2006, 16:45 (0 Talkback[s])
(Other stories by Andrew Morton)

It should be here:

ftp://ftp.kernel.org/pub/linux/kernel/people/akpm/patches/2.6/2.6.19-rc4/2.6.19-rc4-mm1/

but mirroring has broken, so I've temporarily put a copy here:

http://userweb.kernel.org/~akpm/2.6.19-rc4-mm1/

Please check ftp ftp.kernel.org (or www.kernel.org) first.

  • 2.6.19-rc3-mm1 was rather a mess. This is mainly an attempt to repair it.
  • The ACPI tree has been dropped due to Rafael's testing failures.
  • The driver tree has been dropped due to various problems. Consequently a string of patches which are destined for the driver tree have also been temporarily removed. Various other patches have been set aside, rejects have been fixed up, etc. Dropping trees is a pain.
  • None of the other quilt trees (gregkh-*, jdelvare-*, x86_64-mm-*) have been repulled since 2.6.19-rc3-mm1. But the git trees were repulled a few hours ago.

Boilerplate:

  • See the `hot-fixes' directory for any important updates to this patchset.
  • To fetch an -mm tree using git, use (for example)

    git fetch git://git.kernel.org/pub/scm/linux/kernel/git/smurf/linux-trees.git v2.6.16-rc2-mm1

  • -mm kernel commit activity can be reviewed by subscribing to the mm-commits mailing list.

    echo "subscribe mm-commits" | mail majordomo@vger.kernel.org

  • If you hit a bug in -mm and it is not obvious which patch caused it, it is most valuable if you can perform a bisection search to identify which patch introduced the bug. Instructions for this process are at

    http://www.zip.com.au/~akpm/linux/patches/stuff/bisecting-mm-trees.txt

    But beware that this process takes some time (around ten rebuilds and reboots), so consider reporting the bug first and if we cannot immediately identify the faulty patch, then perform the bisection search.

  • When reporting bugs, please try to Cc: the relevant maintainer and mailing list on any email.
  • When reporting bugs in this kernel via email, please also rewrite the email Subject: in some manner to reflect the nature of the bug. Some developers filter by Subject: when looking for messages to read.
  • Semi-daily snapshots of the -mm lineup are uploaded to ftp://ftp.kernel.org/pub/linux/kernel/people/akpm/mm/ and are announced on the mm-commits list.
