Linux 2.2 Released

CmdrTaco posted more than 15 years ago | from the celebrate-good-times dept.

Linux 285

Ladies and Gentleman its that time again. Grab the shot glasses, or the champagne or a beer or a can of jolt and drink to Linux v2.2. Take that drink when you type 'make zImage' (or bzImage if you are so moved) and remember all the hackers that made it happen.

Software Updates? (0)

Anonymous Coward | more than 15 years ago | (#2032641)

Will distros like Redhat and Slackware come out
with software updates to update packages that are required to be updated for the 2.2 kernels? I know i'm too fucking lazy to upgrade it all myself. I'll download the kernel and compile it myself, but I need someone else to do the dirty work of finding the other stuff and compiling it for me.

Uh, someone want to walk me through installing it? (0)

Congratulations to Linus, Alan Cox, and all the other people who helped put this together. I'd help hack the kernel or code if I didn't have to take classes. I take Operating Systems next semester. Grrrr...

goto kernel.org and download the kernel.
put it in your tree somewhere like
/usr/src/linux

cd /usr/src/linux

make config
or
make xconfig
make
make install
make modules
make modules_install
make zImage

copy the new kernel to somewhere like /boot or /

don't forget to update you Lilo settings ;)

hey,
Actually I had a small email conversation with him and he was pretty nice. I asked about glibc2 and he was very nice about it and explained the reasons why (mainly.. there are a few bugs left in glibc2 that should be resolved shortly.. I agree Ive actually come across a few of these and Its understandable) (dont flame me unless you have experiance with glibc2, and I dont mean from the user standpoint... like most people come from, I wont take the time to respond) Ive used slackware for many years, and I must say.. one of the reasons I continue to use it was how nice the author was to my emails. Heck before he started posting the changelogs he emailed me some of them (I asked).. nice big file... but ehh he didnt mind :) anyhow Im sure you get my point by now (grin)

Anonymous Coward | more than 15 years ago | (#2032664)

WTF is wrong with you people? So he released another kernel version. Just because it is a "release" doesn't make it much different than any of the pre-2.2 kernels or even most of the later 2.1.x kernels! This isn't going to solve world hunger, you're still going to have to pay taxes, YES you are still impotent, and you're going to die. Linux 2.2.0 is NO BIG F'ING DEAL! If you really NEEDED any of the stuff that's in 2.2.0 you would've been running the 2.1.x kernels anyway. What's next now? Shall we begin whining and asking Linus when 2.4 is coming out!?

check on validity (0)

Anonymous Coward | more than 15 years ago | (#2032665)

Is there a way to check easily if the kernel I downloaded is the real one and not one someone modified? I admit what I did was download two versions from two places and diff them (sorry!) but I couldn't think of a better way.. call me paranoid. I was thinking maybe if someone put a CRC-type thing up somewhere that was secure, I don't know where that would be though, and we could check it against that..

Anonymous Coward | more than 15 years ago | (#2032667)

I have used just about every 2.1 kernel (including the 2.2pre kernels.. same thing..) yah 2.2 isnt that big of a change from the last pre kernel.. actually Im not even sure if there actually WAS any change.. the point is... the final product is DONE... a year of hard work has been put into 2.2, and the name it self stands for a lot of this. Its not whats in 2.2, but the fact that developers now have a time to look back on all there hard work and reflect on what has changed... Review everything and start up a new devel series...
Its just the (sorta) end to the development cycle... many alpha, beta, pre versions... then FINALLY the actuall product. Even if a beta version was about the SAME as the final product... The fact remains... its time to start developing the next big version... (2.4) And blah... if you dont get what Im saying by now you must be blind :)

So many mirror sites (1)

Anonymous Coward | more than 15 years ago | (#2032785)

With so many mirror sites, I pray none of the
trojan tcp-wrapper type of stuff happens with
the Linux kernel. All that would be needed is
one insecure ftp server. I'm glad that there is
atleast a pgp signature with the new kernel.

Documentation (1)

Anonymous Coward | more than 15 years ago | (#2032786)

All of us with any ability to read code and write English (or the humaniod language of your choice, no discrimination here) need to start writing documentation. Nothing but praise for the LDP and everybody else who is working on it; it's just that we need more and better, and always will.

I do not claim the ability to read code nor write any language, myself.

Can't you use only "make bzImage" (1)

I heard somewhere that the kernel got large enough that you can't use "make zImage" anymore, only "make bzImage". Can anyone confirm this?

Compiling it now... (1)

palpatine (94) | more than 15 years ago | (#2032789)

Hey everyone! I got Linux 2.2.0 from ftp.linuxberg.com--really fast site IMHO. make xconfig works great, which is good because I heard that it didn't work so well in 2.1 and 2.2-pre. Got the ipchains, PnP support (is that working?), joystick drivers, AWE32 synth, the whole works. The compiling is doing great so far.

I'll be writing a quick article on the release of Linux 2.2, along with some of the new features, and my experiences on 32 Bits Online (www.32bitsonline.com). I hope people will be able to get some useful information out of that. 32BO will also be hosting the kernel, although it'll probably be slow like most of the other servers. C'est la vie!

Anyway, I'd like to thank everyone in Linux development for taking their time (especially the volunteers) to work on Linux 2.2.

Seriously, there are a few of us out here who don't have time to keep up with kernel development and can't afford the effort involved keeping up with all the versions. We trust the stable version.

I need the fixes to the st driver's handling of EOD/EOT (hopefully it's fixed) so I can get some tape code working right.

Glibc 2.0 comes with Slackware (1)

Jordy (440) | more than 15 years ago | (#2032798)

Yes, Slackware 3.6 does have a package included in the distribution for glibc. I know this because I have a clean installation of it and it has glibc installed right on it. The only difference is that everything is still compiled against libc5, it's done as a compatibility measure (sort of like including libc4.. it's there in case anyone needs it).

Personally, I've mailed Volkerding myself a few times, and he seemed quite nice. But I wasn't complaining about glibc2 (personally, I don't understand the attraction, and if I want glibc2, I can add it myself).

*Shrug*

Even if Slackware dies at 3.6, I'll continue using it because I like it. But this thread shouldn't turn into a distrib war (which it isn't yet, but I KNOW someone will go that route), but rather a celebration for a new era of sorts.

And there was much rejoycing in the world... (1)

Rendus (2430) | more than 15 years ago | (#2032828)

Ok, bigot was the wrong word... I guess evangelist or something... You get the idea..

I'm not a developer or anything, and using Slack3.5, I have yet to run into a package I can't compile against libc5... I admit I don't compile much, and never have I tried anything blatantly glibc2 specific.

I don't get it I guess. Is there any real technical flaws in libc5 that makes glibc2 a better choice, other than libc5 has been abandoned? Or is glibc2 just "Better, Faster, More"?

Oh well... Maybe someday I will switch over to Debian, RedHat, Caldera, or one of the other glibc2-based distribs.

And there was much rejoycing in the world... (2)

Rendus (2430) | more than 15 years ago | (#2032829)

For Linux 2.2.0 hits the streets.

I can't wait for a Slacware upgrade based around it (It's time for Slack4.0, featuring glibc2 [I'd like to see it, just to shut the glibc2 bigots up]).

/me types make bzImage, hits enter, and takes a long drink from his Mountain Dew.

Millennium (2451) | more than 15 years ago | (#2032830)

All the same, I think I'll wait a day or two for the inevitable 2.2.1. Even if it doesn't come out, it'll take that long just to get into one of the servers; even the Slashdot Effect pales in comparison to what this is likely to be :)

?glibc2 bigots? (was: "...much rejoycing...") (1)

Robert Bowles (2733) | more than 15 years ago | (#2032834)

Erm.
Bigotry has got nothing to do with it.
Simply, libc5 was a library chain with a non-portable structure that was abandoned by its developers (a long time ago). Slackware, (my first distro), unwisely continued to build against this obsolete library long after its effective demise.

BTW, I still keep my first Slackware CD's and my old Atari800 as momentos. I just don't use them.

sflory (2747) | more than 15 years ago | (#2032836)

It really depend on how much you put in it. I haven't gotten a 2.0.x kernel to compile as a zImage for 6 months. The SMP support generally kills you. It's default in 2.2.0 .

I tend to compile in to many filesystems and everything I might ever use as a module.

PGP sig? Don't be sure... (1)

pbowen (9912) | more than 15 years ago | (#2032873)

The PGP signature info is available from
http://www.kernel.org/signature.html

All the .sign files are from this signature.
Any mirror's .sign file will work, so if you don't trust your good ol' local mirror, just grab a reliable .sign from another mirror.

NUTTYX-2.2.0 (1)

Mooset (9986) | more than 15 years ago | (#2032875)

I know I will probally sound like a complete fool, but what the heck is NUTTYX-2.2.0 and which 2.2pre whatever was it derived from? Other than changes to the documentation and some measures to fool uname, it would seem to be the linux kernel version 2.2 or so. If you have no idea what I'm talking about, information (well, very little) is at http://www.yellow5.com/nuttyx/ [yellow5.com] . And yes, it does seem to have something to do with the ever popular Pokey the Penguin.

It compiles and runs just fine, BTW...

Glibc2 + Slackware = Harmony (1)

Man In Black (11263) | more than 15 years ago | (#2032879)

Installing Glibc2 on Slackware is actually a lot easier than it sounds... as long as you follow the documentation and HOWTO's, and don't try anything funny (remember, the guys who wrote the documentation know a hell of a lot more about it than you do, so if you disagree with them, chances are they're right), it should work without any problems. The only strange thing that happens to me is that I get messages from ldconfig about libraries linked against multiple libc's (though when I run ldd, it only mentions libc6...), anyone know what that's all about?

Fix for sound card problems (1)

BJH (11355) | more than 15 years ago | (#2032880)

In driver/sound/sb_ess.c, change the "extern int esstype" to "int esstype" and it should make OK.


Well here it is... (2)

It was a long time coming, but what we have now is perhaps one of the single greatest human achievements since walking on the moon :) Seriously, lets not bring the mirrors to their knees yet :)

When Redhat 6.0 (Along with all the other distros) come out with 2.2.x, Gnome 1.x, E15 or better( KDE included), and the whole bag of tricks, we'll be ready for the desktop

2.2.0 compile crashed (1)

Ween (13381) | more than 15 years ago | (#2032891)

I got some undefined references in an ess file

so if any of you use ESS sound cards dont expect it to compile in. I hope this isnt indicative of the new kernel


talking windows users is where I draw the line ..

Can't you use only "make bzImage" (1)

Your own stupidity (14554) | more than 15 years ago | (#2032895)

You can still use zImage. bzImage is recommended, though. You generally get better compression, anyway. Makes no difference to lilo.

So am I the first to get a compile error? (1)

netgod (15645) | more than 15 years ago | (#2032904)

Source and binaries at netgod.net/linux/ [netgod.net] , summed and signed by a Debian [debian.org] developer.
The 2.2.x kernel seems to work fine on both 2.0 (hamm) and 2.1 (slink), though we're not ready to officially declare them "2.2 ready."

The bzImage on this one is 666kB, which is kind of eerie....

Only a MINOR change? (1)

PDG (100516) | more than 15 years ago | (#2032920)

Ok, from where I sit, going from 2.0 to 2.2 is categorized as a minor change. When do we get hit with 3.0? Lets shake this place up!!
