Hi,

now that linux 2.6.16 is released I'm wondering if development will be based on that instead on 2.6.15. I'm asking because 2.6.16 introduces some driver changes that are quite important to me.

Regards,

Mephisto

Yes, we will release a 2.6.16-based kernel Real Soon Now. I have already said that today in OpenVZ blog.

If you have problem with a particular hardware driver (not working, missing, etc.) -- do not hesitate to file a bug report. We are already supporting a lot of new hardware in our stable kernel series (by either backporting stuff and/or taking vendor drivers).

Great! I'll look into this. The problem is that I couldn't even get the 2.6.8 kernel to work on my server, yet - 2.6.15 patch was bootin with the same config, but was always crashing after the machine was running for 1-2 days. I'm about 150 miles away, to this is a bit problematic to look into.

Can you please provide the output of lspci and lspci -n?
It would help me to understand what hardware you use and which driver is responsible for it.

Thanks

Hello mephisto,

Unfortunately I cannot understand what kind of problem you have on the node.
As far as I see from your lspci, you have I2O zero-channel raid controller. It supported by our kernel and your node should work even on the 2.6.8 kernel.
To load our kernel on this hardware you should create correct initrd image. Could you please send me /etc/modprobe.conf file and
output of the following command
mkinitrd -v -v -f /boot/custom.initrd.img 2.6.8-022stab070.1

thank you,
Vasily Averin

PS could you probably give me an access to the node?

Hi Vasily,

thank you for your answer. I'm getting "-bash: mkinitrd: command not found". I'm using Gentoo and so far made no use of the initrd, because I had all the important modules compiled in. I do have a initramfs-genkernel-x86-2.6.8-022stab070-smp under /boot, I'll check if it helps to include it into my lilo.conf

I'm sorry, but I can't give you access to the server.

My /etc/modprobe.conf looks like this

Hello Mephisto,

Usually we tried to include all the required drivers int kernels, but our i2o driver did not work by this way and we should be forced to compile it as module. Therefore you should use initrd or initramfs images for our kernels.

I hope our kernel will work when you include initrd image to your lilo.conf file.

Unfortunately I'm not familiar with Gentoo. I suppose that the list of requierd modules on this distributive are stores in /etc/modules.conf file. If you will have problems with our kernel, please send me /etc/modules.conf file and your initramfs file.

Thank you,
Vasily Averin

2.6.8 never crashed, it didn't even start (could not mount root fs). It was 2.6.15. I have the feeling that it was a memory related problem because people complained that the server was getting slower and slower before beeing not available anymore - yes I'm using the node as a server even though it is not recommended.

I just realized that CONFIG_SCSI_DPT_I2O was not compiled into the openvz kernel while it was compiled into the running kernel - might have been my own stupidity all along.

hello Mephisto

We use a new driver for this hardware: i2o_block (CONFIG_I2O_BLOCK)
I would note that dpt_i2o driver also did not work inside kernel.
I've tried to build dpt_i2o driver as module and it works OK,

But dpt_i2o and i2o_block drivers have a conflicts and cannot be loaded together.

Thank you,
Vasily Averin

So i2o_block is a replacement for dpt_i2o? What is the advantage of i2o_block? In my running 2.6.14 kernel I have CONFIG_I2O_EXT_ADAPTEC=y - is that a replacement for CONFIG_I2O_BLOCK?

Hello Mephisto,

yes, i2o_block is new driver for i2o hardware, it replaced old dpt_i2o driver in 2.6-based Red Hat disributions.

CONFIG_I2O_EXT_ADAPTEC is not the same as CONFIG_I2O_BLOCK
There are 2 different suboption of new i2o layer.

to build new i2o layer you should enable at least following config options in kernel config file:
CONFIG_I2O=m
CONFIG_I2O_CONFIG=m
CONFIG_I2O_BLOCK=m
CONFIG_I2O_SCSI=m

I would note that i2o_block driver used unusual device names:
instead usual scsi-like /dev/sda it uses /dev/i2o/hda device names. If you not use LABEL's on your filesystem, you may have troubles with partition mounting.

I would note that the best solution is to use the same driver as on your linux distribution.
If Gentoo uses dpt_i2o driver -- that I would recommend you to _disable_ CONFIG_I2O option at all and enable compilation for old dpt_i2o driver:
CONFIG_SCSI_DPT_I2O=m

Thank you,
Vasily Averin

So far not. I converted my fstab to use LABELS for my reiserfs partitions, but couldn't label my root partition. I'm uncertain what to add to my "root = " line in lilo.conf as /dev/i20/hda2 was not accepted by lilo.
I recompiled my kernel to use dpt_i2o again and will try it later today.

I've been so far unable to boot the kernel with CONFIG_I2O_BLOCK. The 2.6.15 and 2.6.16 kernels boot with dpt_i2o, but get unstable after the node has been running for about a day. I've copied about 100GB of data using rsync without problems, but once the Samba fileserver on the hardware node was running and under regular use the machine got slower and slower until it wasn't usable anymore. No VPS was running at that time, just the VZ modules were loaded. I don't think it's a memory issue, because I trippled the memory from 512MB to 1,5GB and the time until it goes down is the same.
My 2.6.16 kernel config can be found here

I will investigate the problem with 2.6.8 once I get it to boot.

PS: I've been running 2.6.15-025stab014.1 without problems on another Gentoo system using the same build environment. That hardware node is running LAMP in addition to OpenVZ, so it must either be hardware related or related to Samba.

mephisto, any progress with booting 2.6.8?
can I help somehow? maybe you can provide boot messages from 2.6.8 when it doesn't boot (e.g. through serial or net console?)

Here is the output of the not booting 2.6.8-022stab072:

Both kernels have these options set. While the 2.6.16 kernel boots, the 2.6.8 kernel doesn't:

mephisto, as vaverin have already said we had faced issues that i2o_block and dpt_i2o drivers do not work properly in 2.6.8 kernel if compiled into the kernel.

Please, could you build a 2.6.8 OpenVZ kernel with _disabled_ CONFIG_I2O option and CONFIG_SCSI_DPT_I2O=m (message #2135)?

Yes, in that case you should create initrd file to boot, but it looks like this is the only possible way to make dpt_i2o driver working in 2.6.8 kernel.

I also tried that and it did not work. I'm sorry I have no error message but I'm happy the system is running now and I can't reboot it.
