ubot2Launchpad bug 539467 in linux "SATA link power management causes disk errors and corruption" [Medium,Confirmed] https://launchpad.net/bugs/53946710:16
smbapw, To the point that upstream said likely controller and whether we can build kernels for test ind whether medium savings is ok. 10:17
smbmedium is ok but I did not get to send a reply for that10:17
fairuzhi, can i ioremap a same physical addr several times? or it it's not possible :)10:46
jjohansenfairuz: maybe it would be platform dependent, the value returned isn't guarenteed to even be virtually mapped10:55

sforsheecking, didn't you discover an msr that gives the firmware version?12:14
ckingsforshee, I didn't get around to checking it out on various platforms I have here.12:14
ckingit's on my list of things to poke at12:15
sforsheedo you happen to have the msr number handy?12:15
ckingnot off the top of my head12:16
sforsheei guess you found it in the bios bits code?12:16
ckingnope, in section 28.4 vol 3b of the IA-32 arch docs12:17
sforsheeokay, i'll take a look, thanks12:18
* cking hopes he recalled the section correctly, it was 2 days ago12:18
ckingsforshee, how come - you want to check the f/w version?12:19
ckingI mean microcode version12:19
ckinghttp://mvogt.wordpress.com/2011/03/10/apt-btrfs-snapshot/ - nice12:20
sforsheecking, wondering if a machine with a C-state hang could be due to old microcode12:22
sforsheebuggy old microcode, that is12:22
ckingwho knows, worth a try12:24
smbtgardner, Have you seen my comment about that screen corruption patch for mvl-dove? Not sure where it got pushed anyway. I did not see any update when fetching13:57
tgardnersmb, the mvl-dove branch in Lucid?13:59
tgardnersmb, ah, forgot to push14:00
smbapw, Tejun sent some patch to try out for bug 539467. Currently building natty based test kernels and then update the bug14:00
ubot2Launchpad bug 539467 in linux "SATA link power management causes disk errors and corruption" [Medium,Confirmed] https://launchpad.net/bugs/53946714:00
smbtgardner, Ok, makes sense then. Btw, then you have to apply to maverick-mvl-dove as well as that wont propagate on rebase14:00
tgardnersmb, the Maverick branch is actually copied from Lucid.14:01
=== diwic is now known as diwic_afk
smbtgardner, Hm, maybe I confure mlv with fsl then. One of them we rebased on an older release. 14:02
smbconfuse even14:02
tgardnersmb, Maverick uses debian.lucid-mvl-dove/etc/update-from-lucid-mvl-dove14:03
smbtgardner, Ah, ok. Ignore me then14:03
tgardnersmb, I ignore you only at my peril.14:03
smbtgardner, I am mostly harmless. Anyway, I think I lost track of the all those arms a bit14:05
tgardnersmb, I have trouble keeping them straight myself.14:09
smbtgardner, Ok, got the update now. Oh, and just to be a bit more verbose on that config change. I just feel it would help those of us who are not that good at remembering things and are lazy (like me) to have a bit more hinting in the description of the commit than just the buglink. That was my concern there but my reply was a bit short14:10

kristian-aalborghi all18:34
kristian-aalborgplease have a look here: http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=1703598 (about building and moving a kernel)18:34
jjohansenkristian-aalborg: https://wiki.ubuntu.com/Kernel/BuildYourOwnKernel18:37
jjohansenkristian-aalborg: that will create a .deb file you can then copy that over and install with18:38
jjohansen  sudo dpkg -i linux-imageXXXXX.deb18:38
kristian-aalborghi jjohansen - I think I tried that and failed, but I'll try again ;)18:39
jjohansenwhere XXXXX is replaced by what the file is actually named18:39
kristian-aalborgcan't remember what went wrong, might have been me being in a rush18:40

komputesMajor regression on Toshiba Satellite T215D - 2.6.32 Lucid kernel works, 2.6.35-27 Maverick only shows a blinking cursor when booting.18:54
jjohansenkomputes: can you open a bug19:00
komputesjjohansen: will do, just wondering if anyones heard about an existing issue with 2.6.35-2719:09
jjohansenkomputes: I remember their were issues during development, but I am not aware of any in maverick atm.  Thats not to say there aren't some or even that there aren't open bugs just not ones I am aware of19:11
BenCkomputes: is it the same if you boot without quiet on the kernel command line?19:24
komputesBenC: I can have them try that, any other recommendation/tips are helpful.19:25
BenCkomputes: I might have some more beyond that suggestion19:25
komputesBenC: do you need to know what the last few lines are before suggesting further actions/troubleshooting19:26
komputesk, thx19:26
BenCHopefully it wont still be an empty flashing cursor :)19:26
komputesfingers crossed19:26
