Description Mike Pagano gentoo-dev 2012-10-18 14:37:40 UTC
Arch teams, please consider stabilization of gentoo-sources-3.5.7 and vanilla-sources-3.5.7
Comment 1 mike 2012-10-19 22:10:42 UTC
x86 ok (repoman ok, compiles ok, usage test ok: runs for several days now, no warnings/errors in dmesg-output)
Comment 2 Agostino Sarubbo gentoo-dev 2012-10-20 18:40:51 UTC
amd64 stable
Comment 3 Tomasz Chilinski 2012-10-21 08:38:18 UTC

What is your point?
Comment 5 Tomasz Chilinski 2012-10-21 19:44:00 UTC
3.5 line is officially EOLed. That's my all point ;-)
Comment 6 Tomasz Chilinski 2012-10-21 19:45:26 UTC
Why isn't 3.4.x being stabilized? Maybe I missed something... If I did then sorry!
Comment 7 Agostino Sarubbo gentoo-dev 2012-10-22 10:43:16 UTC
x86 stable
Comment 8 Jeroen Roovers (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2012-10-22 23:08:55 UTC
Stable for HPPA.
Comment 9 Raymond Jennings 2012-10-24 11:12:45 UTC
I'd like to make a general suggestion.

If the latest stable version in the portage tree is also EOL'ed upstream, fix it as soon as possible.

3.3.8 's swapping bug wrecked a LOT of hard work.

Please excuse the off-topic question, but do you have a link for this bug or the commit which remedied it?
Comment 11 Mike Pagano gentoo-dev 2012-10-24 23:49:49 UTC
ext4 bug in this version warrants stopping stabilization.
Comment 12 Mike Pagano gentoo-dev 2012-10-29 12:19:21 UTC
Please continue stabilization, as the ext4 affects a specific set of circumstances and non standard settings

There might be another bug wrt ext4 and Kernel 3.5.7. A cvs up for gentoo-x86 on an ext4 partition trashed the file systems (fsck reported thousands of errors afterwards).

The disk in question is an OCZ Vertex 4 ( firmware version 1.5 ) and is directly connected to one of the south bridges sata 3 ports. The chipset is one of AMDs FX990/SB950. AHCI mode is used and the mount options are 'defaults,noatime,discard'.

Personally I don't trust this kernel and stick to an older version. If I had to guess I'd blame it on very fast deletion of many files. So uninstalling a kernel might trigger this as well.
Comment 17 Raymond Jennings 2012-12-08 03:28:06 UTC
I'd rather we just ditch 3.5 and go to 3.6

I've been using it for awhile and haven't had any problems at all.
Comment 18 Agostino Sarubbo gentoo-dev 2012-12-09 12:49:01 UTC
ppc64 stable. Last arch, closing
