That's been my impression. Christian has been working on 2.6 for Atari
lately though.

Buildds are running _on_ Atari. not for Atari :-)

IIRC 2.4.30 worked pretty much out of the box except for the serial driver
(which is crucial for networking ATM). On _my_ CT60 I had to hack a bit
more, but I guess I'm the only one with the CT60 installed on top of a 030
clock booster :-) 2.4 for stock Atari and even CT60 on stock Falcon should
work out of the box.

Right. What subsystems might be affected?
