Kernel Version Numbering Scheme - Question
Just when I thought I was knowledgable enough in Linux to graduate from being a newbee, I am having to ask a newbee question once more.
I am attempting to get ivtv to work in Red Hat Enterprise 4 (RHEL4) but after looking at the ivtv documentation, it appears that I am running a linux kernel that hasn't even been released yet.
According to "uname -r", I am running kernel version 2.6.9-55.ELsmp. But according to the ivtv documentation, the latest kernel for ivtv is version 188.8.131.52, which is also the latest release of the Linux kernel as of this writting.
It seems to me that 2.6.9-55 is greater than 184.108.40.206.
Would someone mind shedding some light my way?
