Kernel 2.6.5 Mandrake rpm

Recommended Posts

Is there a kernel 2.6.5 kernel mandrake rpm yet (for 10 CE)? And where can I download? If there isn't a proper 2.6.5 mandrake rpm what's the latest version?

 

Thanks

Yes and no

 

The latest "MandrakeLinux Official Version" is kernel-2.6.3.7mdk

 

However, there is a kernel-tmb-2.6.5 kernel rpm available from cooker.

Thanks, I don't suppose you've got a mirror for that official version have you? Has the mirror got any other updates for 10 CE seen as my mandrake update still isn't working?

There is a kernel 2.6.5 for Mandrake 10.0 CE , here:

 

ftp://ftp.pcds.ch/pub/people/rapsys/

 

- it's not an official kernel

- it might work - or not ;-)

- I am using this phoenix-kernel on MDK 10. CE (with all fixes, newer versions installed, but still CE) on a test installation. I had no problems so far.

- if I remember well I've seen a person complaining that a phoenix kernel messed up a system completely ;-)

 

Good luck!

 

(would like to hear your result after installing, and if this kernel is a bit 'obscure' ...)

What does the 2.6.5 kernel offer more then the kernel that is installed by default by 10.0 CE? Does it make sense to install the newest kernel?

 

Ciao,
