The 2.4.1 kernel has just been released and reiserfs is now officially in. I will most likely be upgrading this machine to 2.4.1 in the very near future. Anyone install it yet? If you would like to download it the mirrors are ftp.two-digit-countrycode.kernel.org.

Yes, I tried to install 2.4.1, but the modules won't load. The config process, and the make dep, and make bzImage all went fine, even the make modules and make modules_install completed with out any errors.

The kernel boots, but sound and eth0 doesn't work, so I'm suck with 2.2.16 until I can figure out what happened.

When you did the configure did you make sure to include the drivers for your NIC and sound card? Do you get any errors?

You saw my other post and answered there, thanks.
I think that answered my question.

Did you compile as modules or just include them in the kernel? Also make sure you are root when you 'make modules_install'.

I'm pretty sure that I compiled them as modules, but I'll make sure to check that after I update some packages and rebuild the kernel.

There are some drivers renamed. But most of it is described in the Documentation directories. Search around a bit there.
