Linux Kernel 2.6.0-test4 and patches overview
I installed the new beta kernel and it just rocks :)
There are a lot of improvements since 2.4.x as kernel latency improvements, no need to emulate scsi (ide-scsi) to burn cd's, alsa is getting integrated in the kernel, kernel compilation is easier, more usb support, better hotplug.. and so on.
When you compile the new kernel, there's no need to "make dep" as usual, and the output formatting of "make bzImage" (or simply "make") has also changed. System now goes faster!
"Famous" Patches (for 2.6.0-test4):
I usually use the mm patches, but bk are also good.. there are a lot of patches available (love, ck, ac, etc) but as for now they haven't released a 2.6.0-test4 patch.
Just try yourself and decide :P
P.D.: don't forget the usual disclaimer! (2.6.x kernel is beta and can damage your computer, we don't have any responsability, use at your own risk, and that stuff)
