Hi all

Apologies for the OT post..

PathScale needs some packaging help (immediately or asap)

1) kernel-trace, kernel-default, kernel-sources , kernel-trace-sources (if they differ) , kernel-trace-sysm (if this needs to be different from, kernel-sysm)
I've started a package [1] derived from Kernel:HEAD which gets close to doing what we need, but not quite. The kernel-trace package builds and boots, but I can't manage to get the corresponding kernel-trace-sources to correctly match.

2) pscnv (Built against the kernel-default and kernel-trace from above)
http://github.com/pathscale/pscnv
(There's existing nouveau packages which could possibly be a good base start..
https://build.opensuse.org/project/repositories?project=home%3Ajobermayr )

3) valgrind-mmt
http://kadu.net/~joi/valgrind-mmt.git/ <http://kadu.net/%7Ejoi/valgrind-mmt.git/>

4) envytools

Q - Why the hassle and why Kernel:HEAD?
A - We're not currently able to backport and test our compiler on the loads of different kernels so want a 2.6.35 kernel that we can get packaged everywhere. (Vanilla would be 2nd choice)

Q - What's the benefit?
A - The end result once these packages are done will be open source NVIDIA drivers across all the distributions that we can get this kernel package to build for. The kernel-trace packages will allow us to also have an officially supported developer kernel to make it easier for people to get us mmiotraces. Overall we hope it'll allow greater testing and developer interest.

Q - What's pscnv?
A - http://wiki.github.com/pathscale/pscnv/

Q - How much is the bounty?
A - Contact me off list

#pathscale - freenode (I'm codestr0m)

Best,

Christopher
