Does this mean one could assign a PCI (express) slot with a graphics card to a virtual machine? If so it could become the easiest way to have a multi-seat box, which has always required some black magic until now.

Re:So what's new? (1)

babai101 (1964448) | more than 3 years ago | (#36843386)

Graphic cards are too complicated for that, its not possible yet.

Re:So what's new? (0)

Anonymous Coward | more than 3 years ago | (#36843646)

Really? I'm running Xen 4.1 on kernel 2.6.32 (from Debian Squeeze) with a Windows XP vm using the graphics card on the mainboard (Intel DQ67SW which supports vt-d). This was actually quite easy to setup.

But I think having multiple vm's with each its own graphics card still requires black magic (on the Xen side, not so much in the kernel).

You're wrong. It IS possible and it is very simple with xen 4.1 and Linux 3.0 as dom0.

No, I think you just have to take the PCI Express port and reroute its DIMM slot through the motherboard's PSU with a flux capacitor to achieve thermonuclear fusion for optimal performance

Also, it can create GUI interfaces in Visual Basic.

DarkOx (621550) | more than 3 years ago | (#36843876)

You can actually get this to work with VMWare's free (as in beer) ESXi. I have played with it on laptops. You can assign the memory addresses of the graphics controller to one VM. I never solved the keyboard issue directly, had to plug in a USB keyboard. You also lose all access to the console itself, (not that you need any once things are setup).

Naturally there is no way to toggle between VMs either so you will have to use the management tools from the machine you have the video assigned to create additional VMs and then interact with them over the virtual network.

I wan't to try this with Zen now that it has dom0 support. It would be slick as hell to have physical access to one VM while having as many more instances of machines I as I like.

Maybe because there is a huge difference between a kernel and an operating system?
Additionally the step from the latest release candidate to the release is so minor that it can barely count as a kernel update on its own.

Compare an update from CentOS 5 to CentOS 6 with the update of Snow Leopard to Lion, or Windows Vista to Windows 7 if you like.

Re:Feels the same as the last ones (1)

JohnnyBGod (1088549) | more than 3 years ago | (#36843426)

Can't speak for CentOS, but an Ubuntu update is certainly easier than those.

...as long as it works. Try to resolve the mess you're in after upgrade that has failed due to lack of disk space, for instance.

Re:Feels the same as the last ones (1)

fadir (522518) | more than 3 years ago | (#36843578)

Maybe you didn't have any problems - neither did I when upgrading from Snow Leopard to Lion.

There are certainly reports of people having problems on Ubuntu upgrades as well. Considering that more than 1 mio. people grabbed Lion just yesterday I'd say the reports of problems that show up account for only a very small percentage and lots of them are just minor issues, not real problems in the meaning "upgrade failed". In fact the worst I have seen are a few reports that people couldn't upgrade (usually because of some Bootcamp problems) - but that left them with a perfectly fine Snow Leopard system.

So saying that Lion is troublesome to install is greatly exaggerated.

It's the same thing (0)

Anonymous Coward | more than 3 years ago | (#36843066)

Too bad the biggest change in linux 3.0 is the fact that it's called linux 3.0

Re:It's the same thing (4, Insightful)

Elbereth (58257) | more than 3 years ago | (#36843354)

That's not entirely true. If you compare 2.6.0 to 3.0, there's a crapload of changes. However, if you're comparing 2.6.39 to 3.0, it's true that there aren't any big changes. The main reason is because there was no experimental 2.7 branch. If 2.6 had progressed to around 2.6.5 or so, then received nothing but occasional bug fixes, I'd think we'd be amazed by all the new features. Linux development has changed quite a lot since the early days, when the stable kernel branch was considered delicate and protected from any major changes. Now that we've changed the way that Linux is developed (old way: even numbered minor versions are stable, odd numbered minor versions are experimental; new way: new features are continually added to the kernel, rather than going to the experimental branch), added in crazy amounts of features, and it's getting to be a bigger pain to maintain, why not bump the major version?

Was there a compelling reason to bump the major version number? It depends on your point of view, really. I agree with Linus on this matter. It was a good a time as any, plus it was warranted. I understand that some people are disappointed that 3.0 doesn't bring substantial changes from the very last 2.6 patch, but that's not how Linux is developed any more. Is the new way better? Who knows. It seems to be working out well, though.

Actually it is a joke, and it is very funny; you just don't realize it. The changes made by M$ were very specific to one area of code related to VM support for Windows. The changes were specifically requested by the kernel developers to fix M$'s sloppy work. Also, all changes made were signed off in true Open Source fashion. There is no reason to worry that M$ has tainted anything.

They contributed code to a specific driver, used for running Linux under their own virtualisation solution. You won't even build that code unless you select that driver. It is the biggest single contribution to this release because this is the first release after they finally cleaned it up enough to get accepted in to the mainline kernel.
