About Marcin Juszkiewicz

Now, when Linus Torvalds released Linux 3.0-rc many people are trying to update to this version. I did it recently on one of my machines and decided to share instructions with others. Not best option but easy do to and does not require lot of work - just need to grab three packages: Linux 3.0 kernel image - select newest version and required flavour (generic/server/virtual) module-init-tools - version 3.13 is required to get modules working, 3.16 is now available in oneiric Then install resulting debs and reboot computer. This method requires editing system configuration but is nicer. You need to create file ('30-pinning' for example) in /etc/apt/preferences.d/ directory with this contents: apt-get install -t oneiric linux-image-3.0-1-generic module-init-tools apt-get install -t oneiric procps funny note Building Poky Linux under commercial GNU/Linux distributions How to install additional software into your OE generated rootfs Tagged with linaro , linux , ubuntu . By Marcin Juszkiewicz - June 20, 2011 thanks marcin - works maybe add apt-get -t oneiric June 20, 2011, 14:38 Reply June 20, 2011, 15:10 Reply It would be not funny if the fans would stop spinning. I think that previous behaviour ( 4700rpm) was better, fans shouldn't be managed by software unless you explicitly configure software to do so. It's dangerous because it's not clear if the behaviour is intended by kernel developers. June 20, 2011, 22:37 Reply June 21, 2011, 10:53 Reply Merci pour ce tutoriel. Je sens que je vais le tester dans la journée. Cordialement June 21, 2011, 06:46 Reply June 21, 2011, 23:21 Reply June 21, 2011, 23:25 Reply Mainline kernels built by Ubuntu kernel team are not supported by them for normal use. And you forgot module-init-tools and procps. June 22, 2011, 09:02 Reply Hello, thanks for info, and a question I have no file natty.list in /etc/apt/sources.list.d/ directory Any suggestion? June 22, 2011, 09:43 Reply Then edit /etc/apt/sources.list file and duplicate entries. You can also move this file to /etc/apt/sources.list.d/natty.list and then follow my instructions. For APT it does not matter. June 22, 2011, 10:20 Reply June 25, 2011, 12:02 Reply I have blanks and it works fine for me: June 25, 2011, 15:22 Reply Great howto! Done on multiple systems with no problem, much better than manual .deb installs. Thanks :) July 5, 2011, 02:44 Reply With the latest Alpha 3 release of Oneiric, this appears to be correct: $ cat /etc/apt/preferences.d/30-oneiric Fans are typically controlled by BIOS bot directly by OS, although you can do that also. There was something really bad happening in the previous releases causing CPU voltages and the number of interrupts to step up kicking in the fans at high RPM. Something was corrected later on in the OS, reducing the CPU load and hence the cooling requirement from the fans.
