From the earlier posts in this thread, it seemed that there was at least one person interested in getting the latest & greatest (?) kernel/patches running on their Epia, so I thought I'd share this.
NB: this is a work-in-progress; I've stayed away from the absolute "bleeding-edge" source, but don't come after me with a baseball bat if this stuff does not work as intended - its working for me ATM, tho.
Patch against vanilla linux-2.6.11 (this patch will bring you up to 188.8.131.52)
My M10k machine's hostname is "atlas", in case anyone was wondering where that came from.
From "bzcat $patch | head -n 20":
All of the patches that I used can be found by googling for the file names, with the following exceptions:
- "patch_2.6.11-swsusp2-2.1.8.bz2" is a just a monolithic version of "software-suspend-2.1.8-for-2.6.11"
- "2.6.11-mm4-bk-drm.patch" is just renamed from 2.6.11-mm4's "bk-drm.patch"
- "2.6.11-mm4-bk-drm-via.patch" is just renamed from 2.6.11-mm4's "bk-drm-via.patch"
- "loop_aes-3.0c-2.6.11.diff" is just renamed from the kernel 2.6 patch in v3.0c loop-aes
I was going to use the -cko patchset for 2.6.11, but decided to go with -ck and roll my own, as it were, for the rest.
Other than the drm-via patch from 2.6.11-mm4 and the viafb patch, I haven't used any of the patches one usually associates with "-epia" - the functionality that was provided by "-epia" is pretty much in the vanilla kernel now.
The "shfs" and "loop-aes" patches aren't particularly germane to a carpc; this patch is based on my desktop kernel, and I thought shfs et al. would be neato-keen. Just ignore them.
My Epia M10k's config.
I'll update it in the near-future - promise!
PS: I was going to attach these files to this post, but there's this size restriction - plus, for whatever reason, "bz2" isn't a valid extension. <sigh>
