I'm using 2.4.21-rmk2. I wouldn't expect any issues with the 2.4.19
version which might be the least effort being already packaged, but I
certainly would want to use any older. I did use 2.6.0 briefly, but I
had very significant problems with filesystem corruption which no one
else seems to have had.
