Subject description: 3.1.0 with 64/32 bit support, bfs, hi-mem, lowlatency, etc.
 

This kernel was intended to be kind of an "ideal kernel" for all versions of Puppy Linux.

Similar to this, except now everything works, including live CD booting.

Compiled for x64 with 32-bit emulation, it should work with any modern Puppy. It comes with the BFS patch for improved performance and responsiveness, and is a full-fledged lowlatency PREEMPT kernel.

Edit - this kernel is no longer available.

Just to clarify: is this exclusively for 64 bit processors? Or will it run on a 32 bit machine, too?

Many thanks for these offerings, Announcer.

It'll be interesting to try on my Mac, being the only 64-bit machine i have....(it seems i've pretty much murdered the poor thing by running Puppies on it, because it no longer behaves well, booting OSX, but i'm posting now from Fatdog 64 Shocked )

Thanks, l0wt3ch/Announcer or whatever name else you use Wink

Does it have SCSI support as well as PAE?

Would you be willing to share for those who don't have your gift, how to make use of it?

Anyone else?

Or, "A shame about the FBI stealing everyone's files.
Hopefully that class action lawsuit there was talk of goes ahead...

Does this sound familiar?

Given that everybody who uploads files without violating copyright isn't doing anything illegal, it seems to me impossible that the US government has taken their property with due process of law.

Pretty sure it's for 64 bit cpu's only but the ability to use regular 32 bit apps out of the box is really handy.Much bigger package selection.

Code:
-Version-
Kernel      : Linux 3.1.0 (x86_64)
Compiled      : #1 SMP PREEMPT Mon Jan 2 06:19:35 MST 2012
C Library      : GNU C Library version 2.13 (stable)
Default C Compiler      : Unknown
Distribution      : Unknown distribution

Not my kernel build but I've been testing this quite a bit. Smile Not sure about SCSI support but since it's 64 bit it does access all of my ram....8 Gb on this box.

I mainly have been running the Slacko 531 live cd from the first post.Works fine. The Pet package for hard drive installs is,I'm fairly certain, only for full installs.http://www.getstudio4.com/full_install-3.1.0.pet

Believe all I had to do was install the pet and then edit the menu.lst to point to the new kernel.Too much testing to remember. Laughing
HTH.

How well does the 32bit emulation work?

I have in the past encouraged the use of PAE kernel over 64bit as it keeps compatibility with the many already compiled 32bit applications for puppy, 64bit's downfall ATM.

If this kernel is good with both 32 and 64bit applications, it's gotta be the best option for puppies on new PCs right?

I've installed several of the regular 32 bit packages both from Slickpet and the PPM..... everything has worked fine so far.

Just tried slacko with this kernel.

It would not create a save file on shutdown.

How many pages of bugs do we have now?

Regards Tony.

I just grabbed shinobar's pupsaveconfig-2.0.1.pet from http://www.murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?p=457081#457081
Solved it for me.

I can confirm it is for 64 bit processors only, but does see multiples, i.e. dual, quad, etc
What it does, is enable use of 32 bit software, via emulation, if I understand correctly, as other 64 bit puppy kernels required 64 bit software to be compiled, so it seems very useful, in that respect
It did not work on my dual Xeon 3.2ghz/5gb ram rig, which uses slacko scsi-pae kernel 2.6.39.4 OK
