Re: Initramfs problem

Yes, the problem showed up sometime around when the 4.4.x kernels came out and I've been patching my initramfs since then.

The 4.3.x kernel had different issues (mostly skylake related, oopses every now and then) but the bundled initramfs was fine.

Re: Initramfs problem

I don't think that's a fix. The files are actually present in the proper location on the root filesystem. The problem is that the files are missing inside /boot/initramfs-genkernel-x86_64-4.5.0-sabayon, as they were missing in /boot/initramfs-genkernel-x86_64-4.4.0-sabayon too. For what concerns me ...

Initramfs problem

Hello, I'm not sure this is the proper place or this is the proper way to report a problem but initramfs has been broken for weeks. I just installed the 4.5 kernel and the corresponding initramfs seems to be still broken because it's lacking the i915 firmware files. In fact, /lib/firmware/i915 conta...

Intel IMSM

I have a laptop (Dell Inspiron 15r) with some sort of fakeraid (intel IMSM). This couples a 1TB disk with a 32 GB SSD. I can't manage to make it work properly under Linux but I'd like to keep it since I dual boot (albeit not very often) with windows. The error I get is: mdadm -As mdadm: Container /d...

Re: Radeon 7500M/7600M Series

Could you please post your Xorg.0.log ? In any case, I forgot to say that I also added Section "ServerFlags" Option "AccelMethod" "UXA" EndSection to my /etc/x11/xorg.conf Could you please try that too? In the end, my xorg.conf looks like this: Section "ServerLayout" Identifier "Main Layout" Screen ...

Re: Radeon 7500M/7600M Series

Ok, I found a solution which works quite well for me. I couldn't test it thoroughly yet but it seems to be stable and working. I am using kernel 3.8.10 with amd-drivers-13.4, x11-drivers/xf86-video-intel-2.21.6 and my GPU is a Radeon HD 7730M The key seems to lie in the xf86-video-intel driver not h...
