Anyone checked out the 2.6.12.3 kernel yet?


I just downloaded it and I'm going to upgrade from 2.4.26 today. Just wondering if anyone had anything to say about this kernel. Yes, it is 3 days old. I liked my current one, until yesterday that is, when I found out that my ioctl won't load crypto modules (very easily anyway) with that kernel. Sad reason to upgrade, but I just wrote my own module and want to test it out (and of course start using it). Any opinions on 2.6.12 in general for that matter?

Im using 2.6.12.1 I dont update to 2.6.12.3 because everyweek they release a new modification and there is no need to upgrade every release, but I think the 2.6.12 is all the same with a feel details, and I think your upgrade is more then on time, I have no bad things to say about this kernel... much better them 2.4.x

Works fine for me. No particular problems with it.

Of course, you'll be upgrading from 2.4, I upgraded from 2.6.11... a slightly smaller step

Well, it seems fine with the exception of udev taking around 5 minutes to initialize each time I start up. Do you know how to fix that? Thanks.

Works fine here, udev is fine too ..

I guess people are going to blame swaret again for their system's instability due to udev

I do like how you can link kernel modules now. I haven't messed with it, but I noticed that when you compile a module feeding off of the kernel Makefile it will place 3 .files in your folder giving the command lines used. For the .ko file it used ld. Hopefully that means we can now link external libs into our modules.
