A while back there was an announcement that debian would be
"updating" to kernel 2.6.24, however I've not heard anything since!


I have read that there will be an "etch and a half" release that will include the 2.6.24 kernel (if it proves reliable). It is planned for etch r4, we are at r2 now so it looks to me that it will be some time yet before it is ready. My guess is 8 months or so, the key word there being guess.. :)

We are at r3 already. See




Package: linux-image-2.6.24-1-486 (2.6.24-4):

Running it with ck patched to it: very stable.
