bpo kernel ?


Is a bpo kernel simply a bigmem kernel, or something else entirely? I have failed to find a straight forward answer googling.

I did a little searching and it 'might' seem to do something with virtualization. Some of the suffixes after 'bpo' in the file name were: -'xen' and '-vserver'.

Hope that at least gets you moving in the right direction.

It has something to do with backporting.

After asking on the craigslist nix forum, I got the response that its a 'backported' kernel, probably against stable to enable new hardware/patches. If anyone find a better answer, let me know.
