Well, I've tried several of the test kernels, but never quite ready to put it prime time on my box. I'll stick to 2.4 until about 2.6.10 i'm sure, i never fully moved to 2.4 until I actually had a need to.

I'm actually running 2.6.2-mm1 with a couple of patches and handwritten patches on my iBook G4 (otherwise the kernel won't even compile). I also use ReiserFS, and inted to try ReiserFS 4 on this Mac once I have enought time for debugging

By the way, I did'nt got any kernel panic yet... I mean not today! ;o)

I am killing time right now wile Mandrake 10 updates so I can get my 2.6 kernel all patched up for my dual monitor goodness. So I thought I would pop my head in here and let everyone know because I know you all care so much about me.

I keep thinking about putting linux on my G4 Powerbook but I have never sucked up the guts to do it. I think I will leave my OSX alone for now, what I really want to do is upgrade to 10.3 but I haven't managed to find 70 bucks laying around yet. Maybe when summer hits and I have a job again.

I have compiled the 2.6 kernel with gcc-3.2.2-5 from redhat ... but there are a lot of other things you must do to the init scripts, kudzu, the redhat-config scripts, insmod, etc. (to get all the autodetect things to fuction properly and the modules to load properly)

Basically, from a redhat 9 perspective, I broke the 2.4 compatibility when I shifted to a 2.6 kernel.

The system worked ok that way, but it was a pain to shift back to the 2,4 kernel. (in fact, since it was a test box, I deleted everything and reinstalled RH9 again rather than trying to fix it)

Well ... I am using the 2.6 kernel in Debian, Gentoo, Slackware, Fedora, Mandrake, Ubuntu and SUSE now. In fact, the only 2.4 kernel I am still running is on CentOS/WBEL.
