Thoughts on 2.6.10?


I'm still running 2.6.9, and debating recompiling/patching to get to 2.6.10
Anybody have any thoughts on it?

I upgraded. Haven't really noticed a difference, except i did have to rewrite part of signals.c to get lufs to work.

I only upgrade when I need to. Unless your going to actually use some of the features a newer kernel offers or if its a security update, why bother is what I say. I firmly believe in the saying, "If it works, why bother it!"

The same reason I upgraded from 2.4.26 to 2.6.9 - basically to see if I could.
Now that I know I can - was wondering if it was worth it.

Check out the changelog, if nothing is going to change in your kernel configuration and there are no security updates, it would be like running your current kernel, just a newer version number.
