CFLAGS should target haswell rather than corei7. That is according to the steps on Gentoo wiki for determining the correct -march type.

Do any changes to this need to be made now that Linode has KVM nodes?

MayKiller commented on 2014-12-18 10:31

Some wrong in the menu.lst
Kernel optional config
-> console=hvc0 loglevel=4 ro rootflags=noatime,nodiratime,data=journal,barrier=0,commit=5,journal=update,errors=remount-ro kaslr

->journal=update can't working on Linode.
So, remember delete this line/words.

I'm getting this error while trying to load a module, the system is fully updated.

modprobe: ERROR: could not insert 'bridge': Cannot allocate memory

I can't find the reason for this error, is not only for the bridge module, i con't load any module.

Hello, can you please enable "CONFIG_DM_THIN_PROVISIONING" it's needed for docker devicemapper graphdriver.

Another comment about CONFIG_NR_CPUS. Linode now has variable vcpu sizes depending on your plan. So I guess that should be set to the highest possible value? The largest Linode plan has 20 vcpus.

@xyproto Thanks so much for the tips and feedback. I think containers should work now - let me know if you still have problems!

xyproto commented on 2013-12-10 11:12

See also the output from lxc-checkconfig. It would he nice to run docker containers on linode, but also understandable if you feel it is out of scope for this package. I think it will only grow in popularity, though.

xyproto commented on 2013-12-09 13:44

Please set CONFIG_BRIDGE=y so that it is possible to run docker containers. (docker is an official package in [community]). Thanks for maintaining!

Just to update you all, for the past few months I have been using and testing both i686 and x86_64 versions. Please report any problems as always.

I meant more like "does it really need GRUB1", but apparently it does.

yar commented on 2013-05-07 00:25

menu.lst is in the backup array, so it should be very easy to use your own.

Det commented on 2013-05-07 00:12

Does it have to install menu.lst?

tea commented on 2013-04-14 23:02

CONFIG_NR_CPUS has been set to 4 while Linode has 8 vcpu instances at the moment, should probably change that back to 8.

yar commented on 2013-04-10 05:27

@tea: Yes, that's normal. I opened this bug report about that message last year, but it wasn't really a priority:

If the message annoys you, you can remove autodetect from HOOKS in /etc/mkinitcpio.conf - personally I leave it in anyway.

By the way, I haven't pushed the 3.8 PKGBUILD here yet because it had some filesystem and/or block errors on one of my linodes and I'm still not certain why. But I'm working on it. Sorry for the delay!

tea commented on 2013-04-10 00:25

It is normal for mkinitcpio to tell me:

-> Running build hook: [fsck]
==> WARNING: No modules were added to the image. This is probably not what you want.
==> Creating gzip initcpio image: /boot/initramfs-linux-linode.img
==> WARNING: errors were encountered during the build. The image may not be complete.

Right? This is with the PKGBUILD straight from git (so 3.8.6).

I am not able to test 3.7 on i686 right now. While it is a good guess that if 64-bit works, so does 32, I will in general not be able to test or guarantee i686 in the future. Feedback, testing and pull requests always welcome!

yar commented on 2012-12-07 04:24

Now supports 32-bit, thanks to Xreaper's configging and testing!

yar commented on 2012-11-05 20:52

I don't have any 32-bit linodes to test on atm. Working on making it happen, though! Thanks for your patience. :)

tea commented on 2012-11-05 11:35

Yeah I'd be interested in getting this on 32bit. I'm not quite adventurous enough to against Linode's recommendation for a 32bit distribution just yet.

ChrisW commented on 2012-10-11 05:28

Linode recommends 32 bit distributions for the smaller 512 MB Linodes. What changes would you recommend to adapt this package to i686?
