2.3.99-pre3 Status Update

2.3.99-pre3 is up and running pretty smoothly. The merge is basically finished. Serial and romfs are working. A few bugs have been fixed. I have a little more code to merge into serial, but it only affects the power management parts. I am planning to branch arch/mips/ to be Linux VR specific soon.

Linux VR updated to 2.3.99-pre3

I've brought the Linux VR CVS up to 2.3.99-pre3. Looks good for the most part, except arch/mips/vr41xx/serial.c has been seriously wounded (mortally I think) and won't even compile, and I didn't merge in SGI's latest changes to arch/mips/ (but it seems to work fine as-is).

CVS Update Mailing List Created

A mailing list has been set up to automatically notify users of commits to the Linux VR CVS repository. To subscribe to this list, go here:

At some point in the future, the log information should be better formatted. For now, it's just passing along the CVS log as is.

Ramdisk / Initrd Repaired

Ramdisk and initrd have been in various stages of disrepair since we started this latest round of kernel updates, but the saga really goes all the way back to the dawn of this project. Mike Galbraith has now come up with what looks like the "official" fix, and Mike Klar just put it into our CVS tonight. Works fine for me so far.
