It took some time, but now:
mcon@server:~$ uname -a
Linux server 126.96.36.199-mc.1-arch #1 SMP Fri Jul 23 09:58:16 CEST 2010 x86_64 GNU/Linux
.. and I'm typing in google chrome :D
If deemed useful I can help You backport people understand why the backport kernel fails for me.
I can do kernel compilations and such, even if I dropped the habit long ago ;)
Right now I reverted to the stock kernel + this self-compiled.
Then I'll need to convince my WiFi to work, but that's another story.
Again: many Many MANY THANKS
