2.6.23-rc* adds an EDAC driver for Intel's 3000 and 3010 chipsets
Any plans to backport it to RHEL5?

can you please test one of these kernels and tell me how it goes?
I tried kernel-2.6.18-53.el5.i3000.x86_64.rpm, and it doesn't appear that any
new EDAC driver was added (?):
# ls /lib/modules/2.6.18-53.el5.i3000/kernel/drivers/edac/
e752x_edac.ko edac_mc.ko k8_edac.ko
# grep EDAC /boot/config-2.6.18-53.el5.i3000
# dmesg | grep -i edac
gah, my mistake, sorry.
I'm building a new one.
Jordan, I just uploaded the new kernel packages, same link.
The new package has the same problem. :)
just checked. it's there:
aris@john:/tmp/t/t$ grep I3000 boot/config-2.6.18-53.el5.i3000
check if you are using the right one:
oh, I see, the x86_64 version is missing the module
hm, it's not supported on 64bits, that's why:
+ depends on EDAC_MM_EDAC && PCI && X86_32
I'll investigate why
There's a patch sent to bluesmoke-devel to remove this limitation but Doug
Thompson still didn't pulled it. I'm building new packages with this issue fixed.
Excellent, that one appears to work (module loaded,
Can I expect the driver to be included in future kernel updates for RHEL 5.1, or
will I have to wait until 5.2?
Because it's not a bug fix, I think you'll have to wait for 5.2. If you need it
before, you can request a hotfix creating a ticket on Issue Tracker.
