#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…

Zunächst einmal ist mir positiv aufgefallen, dass sich Ubuntu 19.04 Disco Dingo reaktionsfreudiger anfühlt. Das liegt wohl in erster Linie an GNOME 3.32. Es macht immer mehr Spaß, ein schnelleres System zu benutzen. Was man so liest, halten sich die Änderungen allerdings in Grenzen. Als Linux-Kernel kommt übrigens Version 5.0 zum Einsatz. In den Release Notes ist ein interessanter Hinweis, der den Raspberry Pi […] #Bluetooth #DiscoDingo #Distribution #GNOME #Kernel #Linux #osbn #RaspberryPi #Ubuntu #


 
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. […]"


 
Lange hat es gedauert und es geht fast Hand in Hand mit Ubuntu MATE 19.04 Beta für Desktop-Systeme. Aber ab sofort gibt es eine erste Beta-Version von Ubuntu MATE 18.04 für den Raspberry Pi! Bisher musstest Du Dich mit Version 16.04 zufrieden geben, aber die läuft ganz gut. Ich zeige Dir am Ende des Beitrags, wie Du Ubuntu MATE 18.04 für den Raspberry Pi installierst und einrichtest. Es gibt eine Besonderheit […] #32-Bit #64-Bit #ARM64 #armhf #ARMv7 #ARMv8 #Bluetooth #Ethernet #Kernel #LibreOffice #Linux #MATE #MinecraftPi #Netzwerk #osbn #RaspberryPi #Raspbian #SteamLink #Synaptic #Ubuntu #UbuntuMate #WireGuard #WLAN #


 


 
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 abrufbar sein – zumindest, wenn die mich nicht bestrafen, weil ich schamlos die schon großzügig bemesse Zeit überzogen habe… (aber nur in eine Pause)

Sonntag um 13 Uhr noch nichts vor? Dann schaut doch den Live-Stream (chemnitzer.linux-tage.de/2019/de/progra…) meines Vortrags zu aktuellen Entwicklungen beim #Linux #Kernel (chemnitzer.linux-tage.de/2019/de/progra…) vom #CLT2019. Ihr könnt vorab oder live sogar Fragen stellen (etherpad.net/p/klclt19)


 


 
The recoding of my "What's up in #Linux #Kernel land" talk I gave at this years @devconf_cz is online now. Enjoy!

#Nvidia and #Mellanox were regularly among the top 25 companies contributing to the #Linux #Kernel recently. Together (nvidianews.nvidia.com/news/nvidia-to…) they afaics might hit the top 10.

Picture: lwn.net/Articles/78027… (5.0 had 150 commits with --author=nvidia.com)

Wow. New #linux #kernel 5.0 already available.

Linux 5.0 is here.
  • Btrfs file-system support for swap files
  • Logitech high resolution scrolling support for mice
  • The Raspberry Pi touch-screen driver was finally mainlined
  • Early support work around for next-gen AMD Ryzen/EPYC processors
  • AMD FreeSync/VRR support
  • Initial support for the NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2000 "Turing" GPU's
+so much more!

As usual, the boss Finn Linus Torvalds left a message also ==> http://lkml.iu.edu/hypermail/linux/kernel/1903.0/01288.html

Here is your answer in case you wonder why after tagging in git it often takes a few hours until a new #Linux #mainline release tarball actually shows up on #kernel.org.

One of many good reasons why you want to use #git instead of tarballs and patches to get Linux kernels 😉


 
The #Linux #Kernel 5.0 is out:
lore.kernel.org/lkml/CAHk-=wju… "[…] I'd like to point out (yet again) that […] "5.0" doesn't mean anything more than that the 4.x numbers started getting big enough that I ran out of fingers and toes. […]"

Here is whats new: kernelnewbies.org/Linux_5.0
