and since I'm too lazy to set it up properly, I'm going to do a "make allyesconfig"

Recompiling the kernel is relatively easy, dude :).

The kernel isn't a very big download, and most distros won't come out with a 2.6 version until their next cycle. Gentoo will probably come out with one soon, but they'll probably be the first for a while.

Just download the kernel, compile it, move it to /boot, and stop ..........ing :)

Oh, right, I forgot this new kernel is xbox-heug. Yeah, it's big. At 56k you can get it in 45 minutes, though...:). Kernel.org has fast servers.



PS: It hurts so good, baby ;)

Not sure I'll upgrade for a while. Using fedora and the last kernal upgrade I did was through up2date. I have never upgraded a kernel on my own. I heard there where issues with rpm's and kernels, but yum updated fedora fine last time so I may just wait for it to be released for fedora by the people at redhat.

Good news, although I'm not gonna upgrade till they have full NTFS support.
Maybe if I have a lot of time to kill.

Is that it? I just downloaded 2.6 ( 56k only to 1hr 15 and i was doing other stuff ), do i need to get modules as well?. Couldnt find anything on making kernel at LDP.

are there any new kernel tools (like modprobe) that need to be upgraded for 2.6 like there was back from 2.2 to 2.4?
