T H A N K S !!

It took some time, but now:

mcon@server:~$ uname -a
Linux server #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
