first version of 2.6.20-grml Posted by Michael Prokop in kernel at 17:48
Linux grml 2.6.20-grml #1 SMP PREEMPT Thu Feb 8 00:15:11 CET 2007 i686 GNU/Linux
Some external, extra modules are missing currently (compare with grml.org/kernel/) due to API changes. Anyway, I'd like to base grml 1.0 on kernel 2.6.20-grml so expect several updates in the next few weeks.

final version of 2.6.18-grml Posted by Michael Prokop in kernel at 12:07
A new version of 2.6.18-grml is available (take a look at the kernel repository for details). This should become the final version of 2.6.18-grml so it will be available in the grml repository soon. A last few tests will take place, some docs have to be updated and then a first release-candidate of grml 0.9 will be available to the public.

I updated the kernel 2.6.18-grml once more. Summary: inclusion of 126.96.36.199 and sync with Debian's svn kernel repository. The patch-list in detail:

1000_184.108.40.206.patch 2500_via-irq-quirk-revert.patch 4005_sky2-v1.9.patch 4010_r8169-8168.patch 4105_dm-bbr.patch 4110_promise-pdc2037x.patch 4150_iteraid.patch 4300_squashfs-3.0.patch 4400_speakup-20060814.patch 5000_grml-version.patch 5001_grml_logo.patch 5002_linux-2.6.17-commandline.patch
As you might notice reiser4 is not part of the kernel (and unless there's an official patch this won't change for the upcoming grml-release). The external modules lufs, nozomi, thinkpad and vaiostat don't compile against 2.6.18 yet, the rest of the work has been done. I'm already running grml 0.8-3d with this kernel version. A new develrelease will be available within the next few days...

2.6.18-grml: grml-kerneladdons Posted by Michael Prokop in kernel at 15:29
I wrote a buildsystem for grml-kerneladdons which allows me to build the appropriate package for every single kernel version of grml much faster now. So you can grab grml-kerneladdons for the first release of 2.6.18-grml already. Notice that the package is named grml-kerneladdons-2.6.18. This provides the possibility to install several kernelpackages at the same time without any conflicts. The package includes tpm-emulator and ipw3945 as well now.

2.6.18-grml: first version available Posted by Michael Prokop in kernel at 21:50
A first version of 2.6.18-grml is available:grml@grml ~ % uname -a
Linux grml 2.6.18-grml #1 SMP PREEMPT Fri Sep 22 20:37:07 CEST 2006 i686 GNU/Linux
Notice: the current version does not include ipw3945 and reiser4 yet. Due to API changes several external modules don't build yet, I'm working on it. Please report any problems you notice and if you have feature requests for the grml-kernel feel free to contact me!

2.6.17-grml in the grml-repository, ... Posted by Michael Prokop in kernel at 18:16
The brand new fglrx-driver version 8.27.10 is available as well, just run 'apt-get update ; apt-get install fglrx-driver fglrx-kernel-2.6.17-grml' to install it.
If you notice any problems please feel free to report them!
Tuesday, July 25. 2006
The final build of 2.6.17-grml is available. It's based on 220.127.116.11, including some more patches and supports SMP and reiser4. I could manage to build all extra modules as well. If you want to install the debian packages before they are going into the grml-repository get them from the usual place.
The kernel is integrated and running with(in) current grml-build 0.7-5f. A new develrelease will be available within the next few days. Then we'll have the big find-bugs-and-report-them-so-we-can-fix-them week before grml 0.8 is available as a new stable release.
Tuesday, June 20. 2006
Being back from Robocup 2006 I've been working on 2.6.17-grml:
% uname -a Linux grml 2.6.17-grml #1 PREEMPT Tue Jun 20 19:39:46 CEST 2006 i686 GNU/Linux
The first public build of 2.6.17-grml including some additional modules is available online now.
The current patch-list (extracted from the README):
Do you think a patch should find its way to the grml-kernel? Please let us know so we can put the patch to our review list.

Work on kernel 2.6.16-grml has been finished. It's based on 18.104.22.168 and includes support for speakup, squashfs 3.0, iteraid, sdhci and reiser4. All the external modules usually provided by grml are available as well, take a look at the kernel-devel webpage for details.
BTW: Besides some updates in configuration files I also added support for detection of resume, speakup_synth, swspeak and brltty bootoptions to grml2hd-bootparams. This means you shouldn't need to add the options manually to lilo's append-line anymore.
A new develrelease (grml 0.6-8) will be available at the weekend. grml 0.7 is coming closer...

2.6.16-grml available (update) Posted by Michael Prokop in kernel at 17:31
A first public version of kernel 2.6.16-grml is available. It includes support for speakup and the new squashfs version 3.0.
Currently nvidia-kernel, openafs, qc-usb, sl-modem, linux-wlan-ng and eagle-usb are missing from the external modules list, caused by building problems. grml-kerneladdons needs to be updated as well. I also found bugs in the exmap and nozomi source package.
BTW: Propably we still can't integrate loop-aes as we need CONFIG_BLK_DEV_LOOP=y and this seems to conflict with loop-aes requirements. :-/
The ISO-build grml 0.6-7c is running with 2.6.16-grml already. Fixing the above mentioned problems is on my todo-list now. I'll provide a new develrelease very soon...
Update: a new kernel build (grml.04) without reiser4 is available and included in new develrelease grml 0.6-7

grml@grml ~ % uname -a
See kernel-information webpage for more details. If you want to test 2.6.15-grml on your box(es), you are welcome to download them. I'm running a few more tests and finishing work on todolist before I'm releasing a preview-release of grml 0.6 for betatesters. I'll be working on grml-small with 2.6.15-grml also to be able to release grml-small 0.2 too.

2.6.13-grml working with unionfs Posted by Michael Prokop in kernel at 00:51
Good news! I just booted 2.6.13-grml with unionfs working. Thanks to Dave Quigley and the other unionfs-guys for their work! That was a very important step for current state of grml. Today (14th of september) we will have a developer meeting in Graz and a new devel-release should be available really soon now. There's only one release-stopper left, that's the new config-framework. People out there: we are coming closer to grml 0.5. :)
Thursday, September 1. 2005
I just finished main work on 2.6.13-grml including all the extra modules. Now I'll update documentation on grml.org/kernel-devel/ and will integrate the kernel in chroot of grml 0.4-3. I'm running 2.6.13-grml already on my develmachine, works very fine so far.
Testing and feedback are welcome (as usual): download .debs from kernel-repository
