I just recompiled and upgraded (from 2.6.9), seems the same. I don't really do any hardcore number crunching or anything with my linux system, so I don't really know what to look for. However, so far so good.

I've got it installed on two systems without any problems. I haven't noticed any differences.

APM don't work as usual with the 2.6.x series... I'll stick with my 2.4.x series...

Installed 2.6.10 in two slack boxes yesterday, it broke the LM sensors on one; I'm just sitting down now to see what happened.
It might be my imagination, but both boxes seem to boot faster... Other than that, everything seems normal.

Upgrading from 2.4x to 2.6.10.

The boot is much faster.
And the system feels faster overall.

Thumbs up 6/10 or 7/10

Positives make the system boot faster and apps seem more responsive. Handling of swap space looks much better. Negatives, I must mount my smartcard reader msdos because vfat no longer works. LM sensors not working but it never did so no big deal. I have not tried to burn a cd yet so I can not comment about cd burning. Reiser4 would be nice, but ooooh well next mm will be out soon. I give this kernel 6/10 as is, 7/10 if non root cd burning works.

It definitely makes the computer boot faster...

That's the first thing I noticed.

I had to disable udev (once again) to get my Maxtor external hard drive up and running. Other than that, everything else is working quite well!

overall I'm very impressed.. the boot time is nice.. and programs like gaim and the gimp started noticably faster.. galeon took a while... probably not related tothe kernel and more related to the fact that I restored my last session and had over 20 tabs open...
everything seems more responsive and the nvidia drivers actually worked this time..

I'm using 2.6.9, everythign is working apart from a few apps (not the kernels fault, my fault or build errors) and the ati drivers (awful as ever)


Is it worth me upgrading to 2.6.10 at the moment?

-0- go 2.6.10 well worth your time. The more I use this kernel the more I like it.
