kernel 2.6 is finally released


You can download the kernel from http://kernel.org.
It was a worthwhile wait ,it was expected to be out before october,but after all the bug-fixes finally the latest stable kernel is v2.6.
I am waiting for the distros to come out with the kernel.

I am dowloading the 2.6.0 kernel and hope I will be able to use my "Hauppage TV Tuner Card" of Conextant chipset "cx881".
Can any one tell me is the driver of Hauppage Tv tuner (chipset CX881) included in the new 2.6.0 kernel?
Otherwise I have to throw away my Tv Tuner Card(According to maker it is the prminent piece of hardware).

What I'm more interested in is, when thirdparty drivers are going to adopt.

I have one PC with an NVidia card and I use the Atmeldrivers for a USB-Wlan-Adapter. The latter one will soon be working with 2.6 (PCMCIA is already implemented).

How about NVidia?

I know there is a fourth party patch for 2.6 but I don't feel like using it.

Mandrake already has 2.6.0-test kernels in the RPMS.cooker so I would suspect it wont be long before we see Mandrake-10

News on the 2.6.0 Kernel

Got this tale from ZDNet.

Looks like good news for the datacenter (or datacentre ) type organisations.

Shame they didn't have fuller details.

Oh well.

I merged your thread with this existing one regarding the new kernel.

I've been running -test kernels since -test5; right now I'm running 2.6.0. Works great - in six months, 2.6 will be running all over the place

Everything's cool with my Abit-NF/7.
I have an nvidia video card, so I took out all the agpgart stuff and just use the nvidia drivers.

YES!!! Finally!!

I've been running test11 for about a week and works great! and now here we have 2.6.0 stable versions!!!

here is a shout out to the linux gurus, awesome job

as for heads up about the new kernel, make sure everyone gets rid of ide-scsi emulation (no need to compile into the kernel or as module)
also, remove the line in your bootloader config files for hdx=ide-scsi to ide-cd as described at the bottom of this thread:
http://www.linuxquestions.org/questi...hreadid=125595


also, nvidia's current drivers do work with the 2.6 kernel, you just need to use the patch (don't worry, it is a good patch and works well, nothing to be afraid of)
check this thread for nvidia driver installation:
http://www.linuxquestions.org/questi...hreadid=125381

everyone upgrade asap, you will be satisfied
