Re: Please test new kernel-image-2.6.10-alpha packages

With the latest upload of kernel-source-2.6.10 I was finally able to
create working (for me) kernel-image-2.6.10-alpha packages. Please
test them, especially when you're using a Qlogic ISP1020/1040 SCSI
controller, which is now supported by the qla1280 driver. You also
need to update initrd-tools if you want to use the qla1280 driver with
your ISP1020/1040 controller.

My patch for initrd-tools isn't perfect currently, you aren't able to
build a new initrd for a 2.4 kernel when running a 2.6 kernel with the
qla1280 driver. I'll provide a better patch soon.


I haven't tried these packages myself yet, but I'm wondering if anyone has tested USB with this kernel? I know it didn't work for me with 2.6.8-1-generic but it works fine with 2.4.27-1-generic. The box is a PWS600au and the USB controller is :

0000:00:07.3 USB Controller: Contaq Microsystems 82c693 (prog-if 10 [OHCI])
        Flags: bus master, medium devsel, latency 32, IRQ 10
        Memory at 0000000009a74000 (32-bit, non-prefetchable) [size=4K]
