I have a note to linux-xfs developers: don't you think that it would be
a good step to provide 2.4.10 kernel rpms for 1.0.1 release ? or maybe
the testing it received is still not sufficient ?
That would mean a kernel needs to be heavily tested before it can be used
for an update disk.
Since the development is past 1.0.1 already and fitting 1.0.1 from 2.4.5 on
a newer kernel wouldn't be a really good idea either.
It is very likely that by the time a redhat 7.2 update disk comes along we
will probably have a newer version included anyways.
What you could also do is use the Mandrake 8.1 kernel since this also
supports XFS and is well tested before release.
Since the dependencies with the rpms are tricky you can download a tar.bz2
This is the contents of the kernel-source rpm but a bit easier to handle.
It will extract into a linux directory and is a 2.4.8-ac12 kernel.
Every program has two purposes one for which
it was written and another for which it wasn't
I use the last kind.
