Linux 2.6.15 released!

Fifteen years after Linus Torvalds bought the machine which got Linux started, version 2.6.15 of his kernel has been released! :)

Added an Ubuntu Breezy image to my repository. Compiled for 686, with the default 686 ubuntu kernel configuration (thus most modules/drivers are available).

And, as I'm using an NVIDIA card here, I've added the NVIDIA kernel driver package too. It's not the current NVIDIA version, but the version included in Ubuntu Breezy (7667) recompiled for the above kernel.

Hi, i'm interested in how did you change the sources of this package. I mean, did you get the sources from kernel.org? from dapper?

Did you apply the dapper patches? It's everything going ok? suspends? hibernation?

Thankyou in advance!

Straight from kernel.org.

Did you apply the dapper patches?
Unfortunately, I do not remember anymore, as I have been neglecting this blog for a long time...

It's everything going ok? suspends? hibernation?
It worked fine for me :) But, I never use suspend nor hibernation, because they always gave me problems with NVIDIA's closed-source drivers.
