Just a quick heads up that the 3.9 merge window kernels are being built
in rawhide now. I've tried to at least test boot kernels on my machine
before submitting them to koji, but testers beware. Merge window
kernels can be tricky.
ARM people: the -git4 kernel build has the big ARM merge contained in
it. I've tried to go through and make a reasonable estimation of what
all the ARM related config options should be set to, but you really need
to look those over. Also... the config file setup is confusing,
particularly config-armv7. That seems to be used by only
kernel-armv7/kernel-armv7hl but not by the omap and tegra armv7 configs.
I think that is leading to some duplication of config settings. Anyway,
look it over please.
PPC/S390x people: You're set. Your architectures are apparently boring
and predictable, so there were no config file changes needed.
Please see the following link for further details:
Today's talk is on debugging vexpress (Versatile Express) kernels
running under qemu models with gdb. It will simply cover setting up a
system for tracing a kernel with gdb and is introductory in nature.
I will host another Fedora ARM technical talk this afternoon. This will
be my second, and so I am taking the opportunity to formalize this into
a series of technical talks. Each 1-2 weeks I will host a deep dive
technical session, on kernel debugging, atomic operations, and covering
gnarly issues that I have helped track down (e.g. systemd-logind issue).
This is not limited to me - drop me a line if you would like to give a
talk, or would like to help organize this series :)
