Description Johannes Segitz 2016-09-13 09:43:04 UTC
Can we enable CONFIG_RANDOMIZE_BASE in our openSUSE kernels? It conflicted with hibernation, but that seemed to be solved. Any other known issues that prevents us from enabling this?
Comment 1 Takashi Iwai 2016-09-13 13:59:03 UTC
For openSUSE-42.1, it's no-go.  For openSUSE-42.2, please go via FATE.
Comment 2 Takashi Iwai 2016-09-14 08:28:16 UTC
BTW, it's also not enabled on SLE12-SP2, either.

How about starting from TW at first?  I'm not quite sure whether this option is safe with 4.4.x code base for hibernation.  And it's fairly late in the game for SP2 / 42.2...
Comment 3 Marcus Meissner 2016-09-14 08:43:23 UTC
I would also suggest sztarting with Tumbleweed.

for sles12 sp2 this is too late I think
Comment 4 Johannes Segitz 2016-09-14 13:22:48 UTC
Agreed. Do we still need a FATE then or is this not necessary for Tumbleweed?
Comment 5 Takashi Iwai 2016-09-14 13:27:47 UTC
I guess it can go without FATE for TW.  Jeff, Jiri, what do you guys think?
Comment 6 Jeff Mahoney 2016-09-14 13:55:17 UTC
I've enabled it in Tumbleweed using this bsc as the reference.
