FC6 Kernel Stack size ?

Hi,

I just wondered if there was any change to the 4K stack in the FC6 (2.6.18) kernel ?

This is my one major bug bear with FC4/5 as it requires I run a custom kernel, and patch in all my extra modules.

I have no solid information, but I really doubt it. The vast majority of users get along with the 4k stack so there is little motivation to move in that direction.

There is no plans to change this. Fedora used a 4k stack even before upstream kernel did and continues to do that now. If you have proprietary modules that require more than 4k stacks they should be fixed instead.

My problem with the 4k stack is the Win32 drives I need to run my Wifi card under Ndiswrapper.

I agree completely! Fix the WiFi support!

Of course, everyone knows thats bigger than ayers-rock and aint going to happen any time soon. in the mean time, I'll still need to custom-build my own kernel.

The cow then is every time a new kernel comes out, I need to download the source, merge in the Nvidia drivers, Ndiswrapper, NTFS support and everything. It's a bit of a cow. Hopefully I wont need to change kernel too often.

Thanks anyway folks.

linuxant usually keeps pretty up-to-date with the fedora kernels and provides 16k stack rpm's:

the ntfs project also has rpm's that work with the above 16k stack kernels:

so you only have 2 rpm's to install, everyone has to do the nvidia thing, and you could use the rpm's from livna.
