I start this new thread because i want highlight only kaiser changes
Before posting use search button and look in this thread.

This is the kernel thread so all problem like "how to install","i can't install", "miss module", ecc ecc are not allowed. If you need to ask this probably you didn't read correctly the guide in atools.
Atools is multyplatform and need python.


2.6.32 kernel changelog
nand fixed
irq problem is now fixed

TODO:
finish battery support
rewrite camera driver
speed up gps

Latest releases are here

Maybe now kernel development will be a little easier to keep track of. I had a random freeze in the kernel before with a message i've never seen before. Didn't think about exporting the logs. I will upload if I see it again.

It was with the 11-29 .32 kernel and only happened after I just switched to it, installed my barebones build and rebooted for the 1st time. I have never seen it since so it could have been an anomaly. Like I said, it was an error I have never seen before and will catch a log if I ever see it again.

It would be helpful if someone could make a list of which types of problem are kernel related, which are build related and which could be either.

I am fairly new to android and not at all clear on what does what .

I belive it's kind of dificult to explain properly whats a kernel bug, and whats a build bug. At least with a few lines of text anyway...

We probably will have to deal with _no_kernel_related_ questions, but we must stick to the topic. If it's not kernel related, point to another thread. Or perhaps instruct to open a new one.

Also, it would be nice to have this stickied again, and if those asking questions would be so nice to inform about device ; kernel version+builddate ; type of instalation (nand VS sd img file VS sd partion VS whatever) ; radio, it would probably make it easier to understand why is the user facing issues.
IMHO of course

Ipv6 support in kernel
Hi Liquid,

Could you please include ipv6 support in kernel? It's needed by some apps, like google goggles, i compiled my own kernel with ipv6 and worked fine.
I hope there is enough kernel space to include ipv6 in the current kernel version
thanks

Question, not directly kernel related, but must start here.
If data using Yaffs is so unstable... why not another FS ?

I noticed that 2.6.25 kernel doesn't mount the partitions on relatime. Is there any chance we could do the same for 2.6.32 (which defaults to relatime). In 2.6.32, I tried to put it to atime but it doesn't work and just defaults to relatime. Could this possibly be the reason we have an unstable data partition in 2.6.32?

Could you point me where are the partitions mounted ? normaly i would search /etc/fstab, but i fearin droid they're mounted elsewhere.

One thing i found in kerneltrap is nice...

"It's also perhaps the most stupid Unix design idea of all times. Unix is really nice and well done, but think about this a bit: 'For every file that is read from the disk, lets do a ... write to the disk! And, for every file that is already cached and which we read from the cache ... do a write to the disk!'"

This is explaining why relatime is better than atime. But if we could force a write to the disk on every access...
