2.6.12 out, comments in :)


Sweeeeeeeeeet!

Its finally out, /me is compiling already, lol

so far so good, but comments, anyone?

EDIT:
For anyone who wants help in installing, here's my guide. I'll update the kernel versions, but the installation is still the same
http://xushi.co.uk/guides/kernel.php

EDIT 2:

I like how export INSTALL_PATH ?= /boot is uncommented by default now.

Anybody upgrading to 2.6.12 should also update udev to v0.58 otherwise
reboot will be somewhat mystifying...

My copy of slack-current has udev at 0.54, find 0.58 at:

http://www.kernel.org/pub/linux/util...ev-058.tar.bz2
http://www.kernel.org/pub/linux/util...8.tar.bz2.sign

I don't use udev, just passing on the first 'gotcha' from LKML.

I've had 2.6.12 running on 2 slack-current boxes, a server and my desktop, with udev-054-i486-3 in use, for about 7 hours now, and have no problems at boot or otherwise. Same as it ever was.

No, I have no need for custom udev rules... fortunately, as it turns out.

That's why you didn't have the problem. I don't use udev, either,
but many of our fellow Linuxers do.

I still prefer the 2.4 series, but just today I downloaded the 2.6.11.11 from a slackware mirror
It took me 2hrs with my ISDN connection.

You may laugh at me freely. I probably deserve it.

Chinaman, I have custom udev rules and the rules are applied
at boot without any problem, these rules just set symlinks though

/etc/udev/rules.d/10_keefaz.rules :
Code:
KERNEL="hdc", SYMLINK="dvd dvdrecorder cdrom1"
KERNEL="hdd", SYMLINK="cdrom cdrecorder cdrom2"
udev package : udev-054-i486-3

Are you running 2.6.12? If so, you should write the kernel devls at
LKML and let them know that's not the problem, and help them find
out the real source.

I use 2.6.12 but as I said, my rules just set symlinks
I have not devices that require rules queries to
/sys dir, so I can't test deeper

I tried 2.6.12 just for fun, and it works fine for me. Except for VMWare5, which works well with the 2.6.10 kernel from Slack10.1.
Anybody else using VMWare5 with that kernel?
