      grab the latest kernel package offered by your distro and try again. Or better yet, compile and test the
      latest git sources ;-)
      OK... I am relatively new to Linux (about 9-10 months now. Are there any issues with grabbing the latest kernel and then still using repositories from the 'base' install. I have been reading the Debian forums, but not managed to find an answer to that.

      If not then I guess I could go to the Kernel that 'Lenny' is using and still use 'Etch' repositories.

      I am starting to think I am 'anal' about control and just need to bite the bullet and go with Gentoo... which seems like a royal pain in the arse.

        Its also based on the unstable branch of Debian. Not sure I want to go there, but I will do some reading on it. I am more of a 'stabilty' guy than a 'bleeding edge' guy. I just have newer hardware that is pushing me towards the bleeding edge or apparently a custom kernel.

            Cool.

            The reviews I had read on it said it was based on SID. Do you have a link to the site?

              Of course latest one is always on the left side - look below preview release. Same URL + .md5 will be the checksum.
