out-of-tree modules for EtchAndAHalf

Conglomeration packages

linux-modules-extra-2.6

  • 2.6.18 gspca
  • 2.6.18 mol
  • 2.6.18 redhat-cluster
  • 2.6.18 squashfs
  • 2.6.18 unionfs
  • 2.6.24 atl2
    • Can be added if wanted, will require upload of new package atl2 to etchnhalf.
  • 2.6.24 aufs
    • Can be added if wanted, will require upload of new package aufs to etchnhalf. If unionfs doesn't make it with 2.6.24, aufs needs to be pulled in in order to keep functionality.
  • 2.6.24 btrfs
    • Not needed; recommended to be skipped (would require new package btrfs and btrfs-tools).
  • 2.6.24 drbd8
  • 2.6.24 gspca
  • 2.6.24 iscsitarget
  • 2.6.24 kqemu
  • 2.6.24 loop-aes
    • Unproblematic, replaces the own binary-modules built in etch by loop-aes itself.
  • 2.6.24 lzma
    • If squashfs is built with lzma, then this is needed.
  • 2.6.24 mol
    • ignoring - not working right now anyway, see #445359.
  • 2.6.24 r6040
    • Can be added if wanted, will require upload of new package r6040 to etchnhalf.
  • 2.6.24 redhat-cluster
    • ignoring - not working right now anyway. will likely be back, though, see #464117.
  • 2.6.24 squashfs
  • 2.6.24 tp-smapi
    • ignoring - not working right now anyway
  • 2.6.24 unionfs
  • 2.6.24 virtualbox-ose
    • Will be dropped from the l-m-e-2.6 etchnhalf upload, virtualbox-ose is not present in etch.
  • 2.6.24 virtualbox-ose-guest
    • Will be dropped from the l-m-e-2.6 etchnhalf upload, virtualbox-ose is not present in etch.

linux-modules-contrib-2.6

  • 2.6.18 ipw2100

  • 2.6.18 ipw3945
    • Will be dropped from the l-m-c-2.6 etchnhalf upload, ipw3945 is replaced with iwlwifi in 2.6.24.
  • 2.6.18 ivtv
    • Will be dropped from the l-m-c-2.6 etchnhalf upload, ivtv modules are included in 2.6.24 ifself.
  • 2.6.24 rt73
    • Can be added if wanted, will require upload of new package rt73 to etchnhalf.

linux-modules-contrib-2.6 can be completely ignored for etchnhalf, there is no l-m-c-2.6 upload needed.

linux-modules-nonfree-2.6

  • 2.6.18 kqemu
    • Will be dropped from the l-m-n-2.6 ethnhalf upload, kqemu is part of the new linux-modules-extra-2.6.

linux-modules-nonfree-2.6 can be completely ignored for etchnhalf, there is no l-m-n-2.6 upload needed.

Other updates

  • firmware-nonfree: iwlwifi needs firmware-iwlwifi. Updating firmware-nonfree (0.4) from etch with firmware-nonfree (0.10) from unstable is unproblematic.

  • ivtv: ivtv needs updated ivtv-utils for 2.6.24, see #448893

  • kqemu: needs update to build with both 2.6.18 and 2.6.24, but is trivial. upload pending.
