Milestone Targeted Work Items

If your name is in the above table, please review your Alpha-1 work items and either get them closed or push them out to the next milestone. Remember, Alpha-1 is Thurs Dec 1.

   apw    hardware-p-kernel-boot    3 work items   
      hardware-p-kernel-delta-review    1 work item   
      foundations-p-ipv6    1 work item   
   cking    hardware-p-kernel-delta-review    1 work item   
   ogasawara    hardware-p-kernel-version-and-flavors    1 work item   
   tgardner    hardware-p-kernel-version-and-flavors    1 work item   
      hardware-p-kernel-delta-review    1 work item   


Blueprint: hardware-p-kernel-power-management

Power Management:

  • i386 vs i386-pae vs amd64 power measurements; various user space scenarios
  • instrument ACPI battery information against different scenarios
  • use ACPI battery analysis to improve powerstat, push out V0.00.04
  • instrument unity 2D vs 3D in a limited set of tests
  • started instrumenting powertop tunables on sandybridge H/W, compare to Win7


Status: Precise Development Kernel

We have uploaded the 3.2.0-2.5 Ubuntu kernel which was based on the latest upstream v3.2-rc3 kernel. Please install and test on any kit you have. Feedback is appreciated. We are in a soft freeze for Alpha-1, we do not intend any uploads until after the milestone.

Important Upcoming Dates:

  • Thurs Dec 1 – Alpha 1 (2 days)
  • Thurs Feb 2 – Alpha 2 (~ 9 weeks)

Open Discussion or Questions? Raise your hand to be recognized

* Discussion about uploading non-pae kernels and fixing the Apple MAC installs as well as the crda stuff.

* Is the installer ready for us to use generic ?

* Hesitation about removing the non-pae kernel so close to the milestone without giving more of a heads up.

  • Goal is prior to Alpha 2.

    * A work item will be listed for for the installer work.

    * The crda bits are not critical for alpha1? I could see an upload for the apple mac installs, or just release noting it for now.

  • Wireless-crda converted to a meta package and uploaded
  • Apple can be release noted.
