finally got off my butt and built new
LTSP kernel packages based on the 2.4.18 Linux kernel sources.
This kernel should work fine with 486's also. Most of you have
probably seen the many messages about problems with initrd and
memory detection with the -6 kernel that I released some time
Well, I used the latest mknbi-linux, and it works nicely now.
I should have released the fixed kernel a long time ago, but
I kept thinking I'd be ready with LTSP v3.1 soon enough.
I'm still hard at work on v3.1.
I'll be travelling over the next 2 weeks, and I hope to
have some quiet time to work on v3.1 while i'm gone.
For anyone interested, I'll be at Ottawa Linux Symposium
next week, in Ottawa, Canada. I'm just attending that show,
not giving a talk.
Then, the following week (July 3rd - 8th), i'll be in Bristol,
England, to give a tutorial on LTSP for the UKUUG conference.
The tutorial is on the 4th of July, then I'll be hanging around
the conference for a few days before heading back to London,
then on the plane headed back to Detroit on the 8th.
Anyway, back to the kernel. It's on the download page
now, and i've placed both the RPM and the TGZ packages there.
Also, a new wireless_ltsp package is available with the new
kernel. Don't forget that the wireless package contains
support for ALL pcmcia network adapters, not just the wireless
kind, so if you have a laptop, you may be able to get it to
work with LTSP.
One more note, I did NOT build kernels with the LPP patch this
time, because there isn't an LPP patch for the 2.4.18 kernels
Anyway, have fun with the new kernel.
