Include kernel 3.2.29 in Slackware 14?


Linux 3.2.29 has been released.

I saw some bugs corrections which could be of interest for i915 or radeon users.

Well, if it's too late anyone interested will be able to make 3.2.29 with config files for 3.2.28

Great news. Good to know that config files can be re-used. Any special hint? or performance insight?

I do not have any performance insight as I didn't build that kernel (yet). Anyway I assume that YMMV depending on your hardware and settings.

If by "special hint" you meant "to reuse the config files from 3.2.28", really nothing special. As a reminder copy the "old" config file as /usr/src/linux-3.2.29/.config then run "make oldconfig", that's about it. If need be this will tell you more.

Inclusion of the the new kernel is unlikely,
I think we see it end up in /testing

I think we will see the new kernel.

Pat always adopted a new kernel when was released and I don`t think we need to test this kernel too long. It`s a LTS kernel and with every release it has fewer and fewer bugs.

http://ftp.heanet.ie/mirrors/ftp.sla.../ChangeLog.txt has the answer already.

"3.2.28 is going to be the release kernel."

I think Pat didn`t consider that it will resume the devel cycle when he said that

Isn't the /testing kernel usually one of the more recent released kernels usually?

If history repeats itself, if anything we will get config files for newer kernels in /testing/source.

Yes, but this is not another kernel branch, this is the same branch.

For the same branch, just reuse one of the config files in /boot.

Anyway there will be probably several kernel releases in the 3.2.x branch before the release of Slackware-next-after-14 and you will have to do that if you want to install one of these.

I doubt 3.2.29 will end up in /testing as it makes no sense; 3.4.x DOES belong there, however. I give it 50/50 Pat will upgrade to 3.2.29: he wrote the above quoted message back on the 24th, and I'm sure he had no idea we would still be pre-release in mid-September...

Speaking of which, perhaps a .rc5 along with 3.2.29 would be prudent, considering all the other changes?

Maybe config file(s) only in /testing/source, no more.
