Re: Debian/Woody and kernel 2.4.6
apt-get dist-upgraded the other night, at first it had some problems. Just
reran it a few times, and then eventually no errors reported. Downloaded
kernel 2.4.6, and compiled. Installed iptables, had some issues, needed to
load netfilter modules.. so I loaded them manually.. just to confirm system
works. Sure enough it does :)
All is sweet... debian wins out again..
Just the same, you could check Documentation/Changes in the source
tree, which lists what versions of some tools are required for the
that kernel. Specifically, what gcc/make is needed to compile, what
versions of filesystem utilites and PPP-type stuff. Testing should
have all these by now, probably. Or you can always try unstable. :)
