kernel 2.6.7 in debian


Hi,
I'd like to know if it'll be ok to upgrade the woody kernel to 2.6.7.I saw on the debian site that kernel 2.6.xx is still in the unstable section.Will it be fine to upgrade?

You would need to go to www.apt-get.org or www.backports.org and get a line for at least the module-init-tools package to be installed along with whatever else has changed to allow you to boot the new kernel you should add this to your /etc/fstab.

Code:
## Needed for kernel 2.6
none            /sys            sysfs   defaults                0       0
And then mkdir /sys as root to create the mount point for the new sysfs that is need for a 2.6 kernel.
