Thumbs up

Interesting concept. I had to read the sourceforge description to find out what the heck the purpose of the kernel was, but great idea Jeremy. A Linux kernel for the newbies. Maybe I'll try when I install Slackware soon.

The FM release is here - http://freshmeat.net/projects/linuxquestions/

As to the OS of kernel.linuxquestions.org - it will change machines soon, but it is a resource I needed to use for now.

src + lq + grsecurity

Long story short about patching +LQ +Grsecurity, adding header file and quick peek at sched.* there's too much errors -Walling by at compile time. I *will* test this, but this ain't the day for combing over a source tree...

Definetly look into adding grsecurity into the patch, it's got some nifty security features. www.grsecurity.net

OK. grsecurity merged with no problems, so it will most likely be included in -lq2.

Indeed! Thanks Jeremy
Will you be adding things such as XFS support and the pre-emptive RML kernel patch? (I know the rml patch is merged into 2.5 stock kernel, but I don't much want to run 2.5 )

No specific plans for XFS at this time. preempt and/or low latency will be considered soon though. Some ReiserFS stuff will probably also go into -lq2.

Ya, as far as the XFS support, I personally use XFS on some of my systems. While ext3 is nice, xfs provides some great stability. All my Gentoo boxes run it by default, and generally when I patch my linux kernels for other distro's i add xfs support

Please consider adding TUX patches that allow usage of TUX webserver without re-compiling kernel

yes go for it
may i request adding Andre Hedrick IDE patch "but it's for the 2.4.18 only" if possible ?
ftp://ftp.kernel.org/pub/linux/kernel/people/hedrick/
it corrects my IDE controller problems "hangs on booting any 2.4 kernel"
Thanks!

how about improving upon the ntfs file system suppot, i'd like to write to my windows drive. i know the current kernel does support this already but it's listed as experimental, i dont want to screw anything up. from what i've heard firewire support has much to be desired in linux as well. i dont know if this is what you meant by suggestions but i thought i'd through it out there anyways.

For those of you who use BitKeeper you can also get the LQ kernel from:
