Distributions using kernel 2.6.22


I have a problem with the suspend and hibernate functions and found that there is a fix for it in the new kernel 2.6.22.

Do you know what distributions use the new kernel?

My laptop is Compaq V2570CA. Here are the specs: I upgraded the RAM to 1.12 GB.

Ubuntu 7.10 Gutsy Gibbon does ... only a snapshot right now. Due in October.

sleep (suspend to ram) and hibernate (suspend to disk) are kind of iffy regardless... at least you know you need only wait.

2.6.22 is pretty new... recent releases have 2.6.21, but patched, see

Ubuntu tends to carry a heavily patched kernel too, so the functionality you want may become available sooner than you think. Or you can have the fun of compiling your own kernel

I ran the update script for my sidux install yesterday - I noticed the new kernel that was installed as part of the update. uname -r tells me that it's this kernel now
If you wanted to try it, then you'd have to download and burn the sidux iso, which then works as a "live" CD or you can install it directly (you'd have to then do the updates to get the latest kernel, the current ISO doesn't have it yet AFAIK). All the info you'd need can be found here.

Or if course, if you don't fancy that approach, then you can always just spend a couple of hours digging through distrowatch to see who's using what kernel wise.
