Is it worthwile to upgrade kernel to 2.6.x ??
After browsing the net and basically this forum, i ask myself if it's worthwile to upgrade the kernel to the 2.6 series.
I tryed already to do this, with a lot of warning on boot-time, specially with the modules. There's people who has no problems at all with the new kernel, and people that have a lot of probs....so:
1.- What's your advice?
2.- Which are the potencial benefits of doing it (i say potencial cause of problems that seems to have to several people)
3.- Which are the drawbacks? (if any)
4.- Is there any special procedure to upgrade? If so, which?
5.- Is the new kernel stable enough?
Thanks to all for your opinion
