2014-07-12Documentation/Changes: clean up mcelog paragraphPaul Bolle1-6/+3
The paragraph on mcelog currently describes kernel v2.6.31. In that kernel the mce code (for i386, that is) was in transition. Ever since v2.6.32 the situation is much simpler (eg, mcelog is now needed to process events on almost all x86 machines, i386 and x86-64). Since this "document is designed to provide a list of the minimum levels of software necessary to run the 3.0 kernels" let's just describe that situation.

2013-11-28remove obsolete references to powertweakDave Jones1-11/+0
This tool hasn't been maintained in over a decade, and is pretty much useless these days. Let's pretend it never happened. Also remove a long-dead email address. Signed-off-by: Dave Jones <davej@fedoraproject.org> Signed-off-by: Linus Torvalds <torvalds@linux-foundation.org>
2011-07-11Documentation/Changes: remove some really obsolete textLinus Torvalds1-25/+18
That file harkens back to the days of the big 2.4 -> 2.6 version jump, and was based even then on older versions. Some of it is just obsolete, and Jesper Juhl points out that it talks about kernel versions 2.6 and should be updated to 3.0. Remove some obsolete text, and re-phrase some other to not be 2.6-specific. Reported-by: Jesper Juhl <jj@chaosbits.net> Signed-off-by: Linus Torvalds <torvalds@linux-foundation.org>
2011-03-23Documentation/Changes: minor correctionsChristian Kujau1-4/+4
I noticed the 'mcelog' program had no comment and then ended up "fixing" a few more things: * reiserfsck -V does not print "reiserfsprogs" (any more?) * is "udevinfo" still shipped? udevd certainly is * grub2 doesn't have a 'grub' binary * add a "# how to get the mcelog version" comment Signed-off-by: Christian Kujau <lists@nerdbynature.de> Signed-off-by: Andrew Morton <akpm@linux-foundation.org> Signed-off-by: Linus Torvalds <torvalds@linux-foundation.org>
2010-07-11Documentation update broken web addressesJustin P. Mattock1-6/+6
I've found some web addresses not responding, giving the cannot connect error when trying to load them. The below patch updates the addresses that are not connecting with the best that I can find, and also fixes a couple of addresses, so people can either choose an older version of the package and/or a newer version(i.e. ppp).

2009-06-18Documentation/Changes: perl is needed to build the kernelJose Luis Perez Diez1-0/+7
Perl is used on the kernel Makefile to generate documentation, firmwares in c source form, sources, graphs, and some headers and this fact is undocumented.

2005-10-28[PATCH] update required version of udevGreg Kroah-Hartman1-1/+1
The 071 release is needed to handle the input changes. Older versions will work properly with module-based systems, but not for users that build input stuff into the kernel. Signed-off-by: Greg Kroah-Hartman <gregkh@suse.de>
2005-09-28[PATCH] fuse: add required version infoMiklos Szeredi1-0/+10

As the information is now exported via sysfs, there's no need for an userspace tool any longer. Signed-off-by: Dominik Brodowski <linux@dominikbrodowski.net> Signed-off-by: Andrew Morton <akpm@osdl.org> Signed-off-by: Linus Torvalds <torvalds@osdl.org>
2005-06-28[PATCH] pcmcia: add some DocumentationDominik Brodowski1-6/+18
Add some information useful for PCMCIA device driver authors to Documentation/pcmcia/, and reference it in dmesg in case of hash mismatches. Also add a reference to pcmciautils to Documentation/Changes. With recent changes, you don't need to concern yourself with pcmcia-cs even if you have PCMCIA hardware, so the example above the list needed to be adapted as well.

2005-06-24[PATCH] oprofile: report anonymous region samplesJohn Levon1-1/+1
The below patch passes samples from anonymous regions to userspace instead of just dropping them. This provides the support needed for reporting anonymous-region code samples (today: basic accumulated results; later: Java and other dynamically compiled code). As this changes the format, an upgrade to the just-released 0.9 release of the userspace tools is required. This patch is based upon an earlier one by Will Cohen <wcohen@redhat.com> Signed-off-by: John Levon <levon@movementarian.org> Signed-off-by: Andrew Morton <akpm@osdl.org> Signed-off-by: Linus Torvalds <torvalds@osdl.org>
2005-05-01[PATCH] DocBook: Use xmlto to process the DocBook files.Martin Waitz1-4/+4
xmlto uses standared XSLT templates to generate manpages, (x)html pages, and XML FO files which can be processed with passivetex. This is much faster than using jadetex for everything. This patch also reduces the number of kernel-specific scripts that are needed to generate documentation.

2005-04-16Linux-2.6.12-rc2Linus Torvalds1-0/+410
Initial git repository build. I'm not bothering with the full history, even though we have it. We can create a separate "historical" git archive of that later if we want to, and in the meantime it's about 3.2GB when imported into git - space that would just make the early git days unnecessarily complicated, when we don't have a lot of good infrastructure for it. Let it rip!
