2.6.24 (finally)
no big step for humankind but I'm quite happy that linux 2.6.24 is finally running on my laptop (thinkpad R60e). the culprit that caused the freezes during earlier attempts was cpudyn; after deactivating it I had no more problems so far. what's not working is ath5k which seems to dislike my wifi card; but the recent madwifi packages do what they are supposed to do. JFTR:
  • I grabbed the latest kernel snapshot from the Debian kernel team's repo.
  • after reading #463353 I downloaded kel's source packages for madwifi-*, built them, installed them, & built the modules as usual with m-a.
now let's have a look at 2.6.24 on my desktop machine :)
