    When using 2.5.60: "

    Is this kernel space or to do with the new modutils that have to be installed for 2.5 kernels?

    Are there plans to support 2.5 in anticipation for 2.6 or are we waiting for 2.6 before work starts?

    (It seems I've already taken for granted lufs on 2.4. When I tested 2.5 the desktop performance was so much better I can't go back)

    TIA :)

      I suppose I ought to give the output of what happens when trying to use lufs

      - on gentoo
      - with a 2.5.60 kernel

      ->
      >>> Completed installing into /var/tmp/portage/lufs-0.9.4/image/

      -- ACCESS VIOLATION SUMMARY ------
      LOG FILE = "/tmp/sandbox-lufs-0.9.4-6387.log"

      open_wr:   /lib/modules/2.5.60/modules.dep

      ( ^ this is the contents of the sandbox log file)

      What lufs version are you using? 0.9.5 should work with 2.5.65. For 2.5.60 you could try 0.9.4.

      I'm not really sure I understand your problem, could you please be more descriptive? (I assume you can't get lufs to work on 2.5.60).

        ok, onw I know 2.5 kernels are supported I know it's worthwhile trying harder.

        Might be an idea to have this info on the website somewhere?
