kernel 3.6 feedback
 
kernel 3.6-1 testing report:

I am running 3.6 from testing on 3 machines. 1 laptop and 2 desktops.
All are fully updated from testing repo.


1 of the desktop didn't come up right - seemed to have trouble with
root filesystem (initiscripts still not systemd). On second reboot it
came up fine. No logs obviously - will report if any further issues
arise. Could be a coincidental hardware problem I suppose.


Other desktop and laptop are both totally fine. laptop has intel on
board graphics and sandy bridge i7 with intel 6300 wifi (lenovo w520).

What hardware (processor/graphics/architecture) was the machine that
had the boot problem with 3.6? Maybe anyone else with the same
hardware might be able to confirm if a similar problem has been seen?
Might just help.

I'm suffering from this regression:

https://lkml.org/lkml/2012/9/26/53
https://bugzilla.kernel.org/show_bug.cgi?id=47961

which causes my HDA intel sound to be distorted and cracky. Reverting
the change mentioned in the LKML thread fixes it. I already mailed the
Arch linux kernel maintainer about it. I'm fairly sure that this fix
should land in 3.6.1, but because I didn't want to wait I patched my
kernel myself...

Booting fine and overall system OK.

I have not been hit by this - but there is some buzz around the
symlink security addition - see this thread for more details:

There is also some noise around udev as well and firmware loading:

(it's a bit of a long thread)

For those not following the entire thread - there seems to be some
debate about firmware loading in udev vs in kernel space and some recent
changes leading to some problems. Best I can tell, while there may be
issues in specific drivers, one symptom is a delayed boot (10-30 secs).


It seems likely this issue is only effecting a subset of systems.
Work is being done and it looks like this will be quickly improved quite
soon and presumably find its way quickly to in 3.6.1.

Arch is not affected as we revert the udev commit.

Great to know - thanks Tom.
