Description Tobias Klausmann gentoo-dev 2008-04-11 18:36:35 UTC
When I compile recent g-s (or a vanilla kernel with the UAC patch added) on alpha, I get multiple sysctl/uac related messages (see attached dmesgt.txt).

This happens on the following kernels:

It doesn't happen on these:

Note that the *functionality* added by the UAC patch is working just fine in all cases.

updated alpha uac patch

Here's a updated alpha uac patch I created from dsd's instructions. It's untested. 

Can you apply it against vanilla- and let me know the results?
Comment 3 Tobias Klausmann gentoo-dev 2008-04-12 09:31:03 UTC
Vanilla with the patch applied doesn't compile:

New updated patch 

Thank-you, Tobias, for the alpha access. This one actually compiles.

boot messages for patch #3

It now compiles, but there still are similar error messages (yet slightly different ones) as initially.

Please test when you have a chance.
Comment 9 Tobias Klausmann gentoo-dev 2008-04-14 17:49:07 UTC
That seems to have done it. No more strange messages and the sysctl works as advertised. Thanks a bunch!
Comment 10 Daniel Drake (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2008-04-19 21:20:01 UTC
fixed in gentoo-sources-2.6.24-r6 / genpatches-2.6.24-7, thanks for the testing
