Can you put 2.2 at least in potato ? I am using here 2.1.131 but didn't
try to upgrade to 2.2.preX as I have understood that there were some
problems. Are the problems solved ? Can I safely grab the kernel, build
it with kernel-package and install the result ?
Are there many system configuration changes to be done to get 2.2.pre
kernels working ?
