Lucid Release Status: Milestoned Features

Milestoned Features - https://edge.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+milestone/ubuntu-10.04

Blueprints: kernel-lucid-bug-handling (ogasawara)

Spec was Approved. Noted updates on action items since last week: bug days -- look for bugs with interesting features, pictures/videos etc:INPROGRESS

  • starting with bugs with patches attached

bug days -- look at improving advertising:INPROGRESS

  • sent to kernel-team, ubuntu-qa, ubuntu-bugcontrol, ubuntu-bugsquad, and blogged at planet.ubuntu.com

Blueprints: kernel-lucid-sru-policy-review (smb, ogasawara)

Done, can be removed from agenda.

Blueprints: kernel-lucid-review-of-ubuntu-delta (apw)

Work is still ongoing, next batch of updates after the a-1 freeze.

Blueprints: kernel-lucid-kernel-config-review (apw)

Nothing to report

Blueprints: kernel-lucid-kms (sconklin)

Moblin patch Karmic test kernel is now in a PPA:

An announcement has been sent to ubuntu-x mailing list. Patches can be viewed here:

Blueprints: kernel-lucid-suspend-resume (manjo)

Nothing major to report there

Blueprints: kernel-lucid-apparmor-development (jjohansen)

Had a couple kitten killers, that prevented it going into alpha1. I have a good tree now that I need to send a pull request out on.

Blueprints: kernel-lucid-boot-performance (apw, csurbhi)

Sent a patch for async rootfs population on kernel-team@lists.ubuntu.com apw, observed a performance improvement on Dell Mini 10v.

apw has got some testing writen up and about to send those out. We're down from about 1.54s to about 0.9s with the stack I (apw) have, the populate_roofs is worth about .3s. We hope to have the patches in for the first upload post a-1.

Other Release Tasks: Lucid Audio Support (bjf)

Still working on c-o-d, getting closer

Other Release Tasks: Lucid Better Power Mgt (amitk)

Got powertop-related kernel patches merged into Lucid and just finished creating a new powertop package that needs signing before upload. Have started looking at Scott's automated boot testing scripts. We might be able to leverage that for power measurements

OOI from a power measurement POV, I guess you're thinking of an external box that measures the power they're drawing? Thats right, which is why laptops are bad since they have a battery that won't allow us to measure true current drawn Are there boxes like that you can get the numbers automatically? Yes, you can get boxes which have serial/usb outputs that can continuously output the current measurements so it is easy to rig it up to a desktop/server assuming we can get some standards tests defined (e.g. idle after boot). We can then measure what wakes us up, whether our HW is sleeping, etc. We can also repeat the same after a resume since some drivers don't go back to sleep after a resume.

Other Release Tasks: EC2 Lucid Kernel Status (jjohansen)

apw rebased and I need to test today. I still need to go through the configs and get them closer to virtual We proabally need to spread the knowledge of how one tests these kerenls.

Status: Lucid (apw)

Lucid kernel is currently frozen for the Alpha-1 release. Following the freeze we intend to make a number of changes as requested by other teams. Of interest we will be re-enabling KMS for ATI radeon to enable userspace fixing. We will be enabling a number of new options, KSM, DEVTMPFS, and enabling parallel flavour building. We will also start updating the ubuntu drivers.
