Decided to take full advantage of the lax 2.5.xx Linux kernel development (since Linus Torvalds is allegedly on holiday... at the LCA Linux conference in Australia) to work on the ARM 2.4 Linux kernel. I have to goals here - to release a 2.4.19-rmk5 kernel, and then a 2.4.20-rmk1 kernel to the community.

Well, today I released the 2.4.19-rmk5 kernel to the community for their indulgence, but I'm expecting some bug reports to come back in (preferably with patches) mainly due to the interrupt handling changes. I'd rather not put these into 2.4, but they seem to be required for some ARM machines.

Tracking two kernel series is not the most fun thing to do, especially when there are differences and you haven't looked at one series for months. Personally, I'd rather have only the one kernel series to concentrate on. (Unfortunately, I tend to let the 2.4 kernel series drift, which isn't a particularly good thing to do.)

ARM Linux managed to appear in the news today at IDG in an article about CVS, claiming that CVS was a key tool to ARM Linux. It is?

Not a good couple of days. Swansea (UK) was the scene of some interesting developments into the effect of a JCB (a digger for those who don't know) cutting fibre on the Internet.

Unfortunately, this had the effect of disconnecting Alan Cox's linux.org.uk and uk.linux.org DNS servers, which then meant that my arm.linux.org.uk and arm.uk.linux.org domains eventually became unresolvable.

It also had the unfortunate effect of decimating the University of Swansea's Internet connectivity, as well as their phone lines. I guess they were complaining more than anyone else.

Unresolvable domains means that the web site, ftp site, mailing lists are all unavailable, and I am unable to send or receive any mail. (Some people might think that this is a good thing.)

About 30 hours after the incident, the fibre has been repaired, and email is starting to move again. Hurray!

Well, it's been a long day. Technically, it is again the start of a new day, but that's old news.

ARM Linux is coming along of course, as it always does. After trying to get pre7 going, I discover that pre8 is already out, and includes the patches I sent to Linus.

No rest for the wicked, is there? Oh well, back to work.

Thanks to Bryce for pointing out this site, I'm now here. This also means that I now have two diaries to update when I find time. Oh well.

I guess you should check the ARM Linux project website for later diary updates...

Meanwhile, I'll resume my ARM Linux development.
