G4L 0.44 Alpha 65 -2013/03/02

Getting close to release. Working on getting all updates installed.
Added new 3.8 kernels, but 3.7.10 is currently still default.
Updated a number of support programs.

Had issue with onboard SATA controller on 32bit build system, but replaced it with a PCI card.

G4L 0.44 Alpha 53 - 2013/02/11

Three new kernel updates and two corrections to 52 alpha.
Missed an update of one of kernels in syslinux.cfg, and missed one of the firmware updates to 3x7.6 kernel. Now tested all kernels, and firmware added to 3x7.7 kernel.

Added new kernels and some additional firmware that isn't in the standard kernel.org source.
Was hoping to hear back that the modification worked for the user.

Have built some newer kernels, and including the new firmware in those builds.

Then primary method has been to burn the cd, but I have had other options, but no perfect way to implement them.

One can copy the contents of the CD to an USB and use syslinux to make it a bootable USB, but that works on some hardware and not others.

I've also created a mini-version that uses grub4dos and can install directly on the ntfs partition. The was from info from an older version of RIPlinux that allowed this. Works easy with XP, by just adding a line to the boot.ini file.

I have been creating mini-versions, but just mention them now and then.
ftp://amd64gcc.dyndns.org/g4l0.44alpha/g4l-lite.7z
ftp://amd64gcc.dyndns.org/g4l0.44alpha/g4l-lite.zip
ftp://amd64gcc.dyndns.org/g4l0.44alpha/g4l-win.exe

The contain only the latest version of the default kernel and the ramdisk.lzma plus the grub4dos info and support. It also has a 40_Custom file that can be used with grub2 do add g4l as a option by copying the the bz3x7.1 and ramdisk.lzma files from the Linux directory to the /boot directory to add g4l as a grub2 boot option.

With Windows 7 and server 2008, it requires a process to make grub4dos the default bootmgr and have it call the original bootmgr to do the regular boot. Don't have direct assess to Windows 7 or any to 8. My classroom labs are still XP, and don't have legal copies of newer versions. Have setup a Windows 7 lab that another teacher had to work with a configuration of XP, 7, and a partition that kept the images for XP and 7 on it, so machines could be quickly restored to a fixed state. but she just retired in December.

Looking for suggestions on options to make this a better process, or get input that it isn't necessary to support this.

Thanks.

G4l 0.44 alpha 24

Have done 24 alpha's so far. Much of it was about a users request to have a method of disabling the automatic dhcp setup for the nic. He had a setup that didn't use dhcp, which I had not really considered, but then have some systems that I have I don't control the dhcp server. So, being able to disable it, or have a way to set a fixed IP address. Adding to the kernel line nodhcp will have it not call the script to pre setup dhcp, and nodhcp=ipaddress will set the nic to the ipaddress, but currently only does eth0.

A number of minor changes in the syslinux.cfg and isolinux.cfg as I've been doing some testing with syslinux 5.00, and the changes were recommended from there list, and improve things, but there are some issues with the just released 5.00, so still using 4.06.

Here are the changes that have been done in 0.44 from 0.43 release over 24 alphas.

Have been trying to implement the complete firmware option, but have not been able to get it work with the current build system. The manual process thou is very simple to add firmware that is not included in the kernel if identified by modifying the firmware/Makefile and placing the firmware in the directory or sub-directory.

Am thinking of adding a quick scan of dmesg to perhaps note missing firmware, so it can be added.
dmesg | grep -i -e failed -e error
This currently shows two lines with my systems that don't have missing firmware, but would have included the lines from the bnx2x firmware that I got from a user. Perhaps have it show any lines other the the two that show, if they exists, and prompt users to contact me.

Thanks.

Updates of the firmware are in the latest bz3x6.6 and bz3x6.7 kernels.

Adding /lib/firmware directory to add support for those
requiring it.
Using
git clone http://git.kernel.org/pub/scm/linux/kernel/git/dwmw2/linux-firmware.git
to get the latest files. Earlier test used Fedora17 /lib/firmware directory.
Probable some files that would not be necessary, but don't know.
Do remove the .git directory from the download.
This required increasing the size of the ramdisk from 64M to 128M, and the number
of inodes in the makecdrm script.

The 2012/11/05 kernels have a firmware option turned off to not include
in kernel firmware to hopefully resolve an issue with the new /lib/firmware
CONFIG_PREVENT_FIRMWARE_BUILD=y

CONFIG_EXTRA_FIRMWARE=""
# CONFIG_HOSTAP_FIRMWARE is not set

# CONFIG_GOOGLE_FIRMWARE is not set

Remove the /lib/firmware since it didn't work, and could not get any real
support on how to make it work from kernel list.
So, it does the the bnx2x firmware that was the exact issue added manually
to the kernel build rather than having all firmware loaded via /lib/firmware.
It appears this was an ideal, but it seems that it has been Orphaned.

Now have to copy previous .config files, and modify firmware/Makefile
and add additional firmware file to build kernels.
If anyone has other firmware that needs to be added, please let me know.
