  • LinuxICE 2.0.1.0 preview [with Video]

    A couple weeks after the 2.0 release and we've pushed over 400Gigs of data! Thanks to everyone who is seeding the torrent. There have been many reports of some issues in the 2.0 image. Some are fixable via update, but some aren't as automatic. For this reason, I will push out a bugfix version of 2.0 that contains all the updates and bug fixes that have gone over the past month. This will be called 2.0.1. What'll be new:

    * New kernel: linux-image-linuxice2

    If you've updated since installing 2.0, your awesome tuxonice enabled kernel was likely replaced with ubuntu's non-awesome kernel. This breaks hibernation and sleep functionality. To fix this, we will release a new *-linuxice2 kernel. This new kernel has the latest tuxonice with LZO compression enabled by default for super fast resume times. It should just work.

    * No more iceinstall

    We will be adding several linuxice2 specific versions of ubuntu packages to the repo to replace iceinstall. You will still have to login once, but after you have successfully done that, it'll autologin from then onward. You don't have to run any post-install app to "make things work" anymore.

    * Smarter shutdown.

    LinuxICE, if it can't hibernate, will just shutdown. Simple as that. This all happens automatically when it traps the powerbutton signal from your smart powersupply.

    For existing users:

    All of these updates will be available to you before we produce any images. The worst you'll have to do is install the linuxice2 kernel by hand -which is trivial.

    This will be a new installation image (DVD) for everyone else.

    The LinuxICE2 kernel is now available in the "unstable" repo. You can install this with:

    Code:
    sudo apt-get install linux-image-2.6.28-17-linuxice2
    Let me know if you have any missing drivers. Thanks!

      KEV,
      I cant get the kernel from unstable. I do see it in the testing folder with an update of 7 Jan. Not a big deal as I can wait till Monday to mess around with it, but I will be watching a lot of football this weekend so I will have my laptop with my VM in front of me to play.

        The mirrors may not be all sync'd :-/.

        you can always add "deb http://archive.openice.org/archive anino main", which is a secret repo for LinuxICE3 stuff .

          So, just to be sure this update goes as painless as possible, I should do an ICEUpdate, then get the LinuxICE2 kernal?

            yes. but there should be no harm in not doing an iceupdate before you try to install the linuxice2 kernel. You will at least have to run an apt-get update (which iceupdate will take care of).

              Kev000,
              I'm still not able to get the updated kernal, and I don't know how to use the secret repo. Is the kernal going to be available at some point?

                Sorry Kev if I'm stealing this response.

                @Greenhorn

                Open a terminal, root terminal works fine. Type "vi /etc/apt/sources.list" at the # prompt and hit enter (nano editor works also if you prefer). Hit the letter 'i' to enter 'insert mode'. Add "deb http://archive.openice.org/archive anino main" to the lists. Now to save hit 'esc', followed by ":wq" (thats colon+w+q...wq being write and quit. Thats all:-) Now at the # prompt type "apt-get update", hit enter.

                  I'm reposting the same version of the kernel (the last packages were missing the tuxonice patch, oops). So if you've installed it, uninstall it, apt-get update and reinstall it again.

                  cheers,

                    I just installed the new kernel. I then used mousepad to edit the /boot/grub/menu.1st file to remove the old kernel entries(and to add rootdelay=60 at the end of the kernel line so my system will boot all the way up without me having to type "exit" to resume booting when it hangs).

                    Quick question...Does the new kernel have grub2?

                      No, the bootloader is an independant program from the kernel. I wouldn't recommend grub2 if you are multi-booting. But that's only because I have no idea how to configure it.

                        you don't need to remove the old kernel entry. All you need to do is change the "default" value. Leaving the old will provide a failback in grub menu in case something goes wrong with the current one.

                          New kernel is in stable now (along with a bunch of other updates). The update to upstart will break autologin the first reboot. But after that, you won't have to worry about it anymore.

                            I rebooted a few times to make sure everything was all good before deleting the old kernel. Don't want a grub bootloader with a thousand entries. Tested the recovery of the new kernel too...all was good. Out with the old...in with the new. Only issue is my usplash drops back down to a shell again after few seconds into the boot up. How do I get the kernel to stop looking for "splashy" in sbin to prevent this from happening??

                              try that ^^.

                              Also, if you install usplash-theme-ubuntu, does the splash last until X starts or does it drop to text early as well?
