Does that imply that there is no kernel release within one stable life cycle? If so, why are there 2.6.30 packages in lenny? What I'm currently hoping for is that the package gspca-modules will be released for kernel 2.6.30 (and that it will indeed contain the commit I desire) - should I? I don't think my issue (support for a particular webcam) qualifies as an RC bug. The package I'm looking for (gspca-modules) is not yet in testing or unstable. However, the source package it apparently originates from (linux-modules-extra), _is_ in testing, at version 2.6.30. Although Stan posted a lovely guide, I'd prefer to not build my own kernel if I can avoid it - this is not for my own PC. What I could imagine is installing the linux-2.6.30 binary kernel and building my own linux-modules-extra. Would anything (besides gspca) be missing if I'm using linux-2.6.30 in lenny?
