Re: hurry up already with official 2.4
-----BEGIN PGP SIGNED MESSAGE-----
I had too needed the 2.4.x kernel for installing a server. I had to download
boot-floppies, and roll my own kernel/boot floppies. This worked excellent
I don't think 2.4.x should be default kernel in Woody, but I do think one
should be able to download and use ready to go 2.4.x boot floppies, if one so
Thus why don't you help make a woody 2.4.x boot-floppy release, build
bootable iso images and so on. That would help the situation.
