2.5 series kernel experiences - Debian

Anyone care to share any experiences with the 2.5 series kernels? I'm looking at moving my primary desktop and my laptop over to 2.5.75. Linus has said that 2.6 betas would be out this month, so I figure now's a good time to get a head start. Any particular things I should watch out for? I'm going to be using make-kpkg and friends to do all the work. Any issues with that? Also, how about .config? Can I just copy over my 2.4.21 .config and add new selections as necessary? -- Alex Malinovich Support Free Software, delete your Windows partition ...

    Well, currently we've
    kernel-sources-2.5.69 and friends but it seems a bit outdated.

    It's much better to create a new config for 2.5. It's very different and itcan
    lead to errors ie: some config values you don't need in 2.5 are necessary in
    2.5 and if you import a 2.4 you won't see the default value (enabled)
    Anyway read [url]http://www.codemonkey.org/post-halloween-2.5.txt[/url], some libraries
    may need a update.

    Personally i've been using 2.5 for a long time, appart of the module-init-tools
    i don't have any problem that i remember right now (well, i don't know if
    lm-sensors upstream already supports sysfs, the last time i looked at it no)

    The one thing i miss in debian for 2.5 is a libc6 with NTPL support (Christian
    Leber put a experimental one at [url]http://ijuz.uugrn.org/nptl-0.52-0/;[/url]
    *BE CAREFUL* as it only works with very recent 2.5 kernels) but i can live
    without it (it doesn't change the picture a lot in a icewm desktop).


    The 2.6 betas will start in the next kernel release, but it seems we'll have
    2.6-pre kernels some months.

    If you copy your old .config and make oldconfig, make shure you enable
    Character Devices - CONFIG_VT
    Character Devices - CONFIG_VT_CONSOLE
    Graphics support - CONFIG_VGA_CONSOLE

    They disappeared when I configured linux-2.5.7X (because of a new dependency
    or something).

    Check out "make oldconfig" in the README in the top level of the
    kernel source, under "CONFIGURING the kernel". It's a great time
    saver.

    I can't offer any words of wisdom regarding 2.5.

    HTH,

    Bob

    I had the same problem yesterday. Thankfully, one of the nice folks in
    #debian pointed out that it should be codemonkey.org.uk. The rest is
    correct.
