"Mostly a lot of small fixes since 2.6.10-rc3, with the biggest thing being probably the CIFS update and the switch-over to the new DVB frontend driver world order. Some MMC and USB work too, and ARM updates as usual."

Looks nice

I compiled it on the 25th with my 2.6.9 config file, compiled cleanly, and runs stable. I have to modprobe nvidia and unplug and plug back in my scanner to use them, but I don't know if those are kernel related bugs.

Go to kernel.org, download the latest kernel, untar it to the /usr/src/linux-2.6.10.
As a user:
make oldconfig
make menuconfig
make

As root:
make modules_install
make install

Restart, choose it in grub at boot, or edit your grub.conf file to have it as the default kernel.

The only thing you would have to change in grub is the default kernel from 1 to 0. It is usually located in /etc

this a copy of my grub.conf file:



# grub.conf generated by anaconda
#
# Note that you do not have to rerun grub after making changes to this file
# NOTICE: You do not have a /boot partition. This means that
# all kernel and initrd paths are relative to /, eg.
# root (hd0,1)
# kernel /boot/vmlinuz-version ro root=/dev/sda2
# initrd /boot/initrd-version.img
#boot=/dev/sda
default=2
timeout=5
splashimage=(hd0,1)/boot/grub/splash.xpm.gz
hiddenmenu
title Fedora Core (2.6.9-1.667smp)
root (hd0,1)
kernel /boot/vmlinuz-2.6.9-1.667smp ro root=LABEL=/ rhgb quiet
initrd /boot/initrd-2.6.9-1.667smp.img
title Fedora Core-up (2.6.9-1.667)
root (hd0,1)
kernel /boot/vmlinuz-2.6.9-1.667 ro root=LABEL=/ rhgb quiet
initrd /boot/initrd-2.6.9-1.667.img
title Windows XP
rootnoverify (hd0,0)
chainloader +1


What do u suggest to change ?
