Re: [linux-tr] Difference b/w 2.2.10ac3 and 2.2.11?


    That is weird. I'm running on 2.2.11 which was made by taking kernel
2.2.7 and using patch files to get it to 2.2.11. Everything seems to be
running smooth. I did have to make sure that the CONFIG_IBMTR option was on
so that my PCMCIA card would work.. But other than that it worked fine.
