I think so. I'll wait a while too before recompiling.

I'll wait a while but I'm thinking I could recompile the non-smp generic kernel with the smp option. If this is a confirmed issue will there be a reissue of the official 12.2 kernel patches?

Drop a note to Pat V, Robby Workman, or Alien Bob. My understanding is that the huge-smp and generic-smp kernels are not supposed to be the same thing!

I sent an email to security@slackware.com with a request to review the 2.6.27.31-smp kernels in the patch release and also a link to this thread just in case.

Thanks for the notice! I'll get a correct kernel up shortly... sorry about that.

The patches for net/socket.c are correct, for anyone compiling their own. This was just a .config mixup.

The updated generic-2.6.27.31-smp kernel packages are available. I used slackpkg to download and install. Ran mkinitrd and lilo without the unexpected lilo warnings from earlier. The /boot generic-2.6.27.31-smp and huge-2.6.27.31-smp file sizes seem in order.

Thanks to volkerdi and team for such a quick response!
