New Version

Posted by pete on 24th December 2005

Volker Braun has put out a new version of his FC4 kernel. Here’s my version, which is just his, but with IBM ACPI modularized and IPv6 enabled (and modularized).

Binary RPMs…

Linux Laptop Magic

Posted by pete on 9th December 2005

Volker Braun has been working on a series of Linux kernels for T4x Thinkpads. They enable ACPI, software suspend to disk, and the IPW2100/2200 wireless devices and — bonus! — they work. (At least, they work on a T40 Thinkpad with FC4 and the IPW fireware installed. YMMV) I’ve been very happy with them, but have to recompile to make a minor configuration tweak. I like to have the ibm_acpi module compiled as a module so that I can enable the experimental options. (In Volker’s version, it’s compiled into the kernel.)

Today, I discovered another tweak I needed to make. I was suffering /sitting through my Nth IPv6 conference, when I decided to see if I could set up IPv6 connectivity over the wireless offered in the conference room. I had done it a while ago, got the dancing turtle, then decided I wanted to connect to other sites and went back to IPv4. When I tried to insert the IPv6 module into the kernel, I found that Volker doesn’t configure in IPv6.

Since this was a little more complex than just changing a configuration option that’s already there, I now present Voker’s kernel with IPv6 and ibm_acpi compiled as a module. Here are the pre-compiled i686 binaries…

…and here’s the SRPM for your own RPM-compiling fun.

Thanks to Volker for putting this all together.
