Yes, I spotted that. I installed a 2.2.18 kernel two weeks ago (with
ext3 patched in - although I am not using it yet) provided by Steve
McIntyre) and last week I upgraded to Woody with out any problem.
XF86-4.0.2 didn't come up straight away - first I had to set the correct
driver in the config file - but I had no problems with the devices. I
can't see devfsd running.
I don't known what the problom is with XF86-4 & 2.2.18.
I am waiting to go to 2.4.x for a bit. Alan's best advice if you need
stable (and I do on my laptop) is to wait until x.x.5 or x.x.6 which is
when the kernel becomes stable on most platforms.
