    Phoronix: Linux 2.6.34 Kernel Released! Time For 2.6.35

    Linus Torvalds has announced this Sunday the release of the Linux 2.6.34 kernel. The release announcement for the Linux 2.6.34 kernel can be read at LKML.org...

    It is odd that kernelnewbies.org did not mention the updates to compcache in their release notes. I believe that compcache support is supposed to be at the stage where using the in-kernel code is recommended by its developers now.

      To bad full proper Phenom II x 6 support wasn't included in this release.

        Does someone know if Radeon (r700) KMS can now run as cool as UMS? Also, is there an equivalent now for:

        Option "ForceLowPowerMode" "on"

        for KMS?

            the best part of this kernel is this wine bugfix: https://bugzilla.kernel.org/show_bug.cgi?id=15395#c34

              For r600/r700, pass this argument in the kernel command line:

              radeon.dynpm=1.

              And thank the developers, for it's working great.

                  Will try out as soon as 2.6.34 arrives in Gentoo.

                  Is it possible to force a constant low power mode though? (Like ForceLowPowerMode in UMS X.Org.)

                      Little steps, cowboy.
                      This power management implementation permits the r600/r700 GPUs not to burst into flames.

                      It will be, when the new radeon power management code (which implements voltage variation, too) currently in the "drm-radeon-testing" git branch will be merged in Linus' development tree for 2.6.35. A week or two. Or three.

                      The developers implemented a sysfs interface which permits enabling a dynamic power management, or a single power state for the GPU/memory.

                      And that's great.

                      But I haven't tested it all, yet. I'll report if I do, before the mainline merge.

                        The patches for full functionality were only posted on LKML on May 7. Ramzswap in .34 does have some bugfixes compared to .33, but the swap free notify is not in .34 (and lacking it makes things nearly useless).

                        Plus still in staging.

                          I've been spoiled with Arch's great community which provides AUR PKGBUILD scripts for the latest kernel and ATI code, and especially the Radeon enthusiasts over at: http://bbs.archlinux.org/viewtopic.php?id=79509&p=1

                          What is the recommended procedure to try the latest and greatest on Fedora? Are there similar user groups and repositories in the Fedora camp?

                            It was in Gentoo within a few hours of release if you count sys-kernel/vanilla-sources.

                              I know. It's just that I need the boot decor Gentoo patches :P
