    Phoronix: Linux 3.5-rc7 Kernel: Not Cool, Guys. Not Cool.

    Linus Torvalds released the Linux 3.5-rc7 kernel on Saturday afternoon and he's not too happy about it...

    I believe he'll get over it

      everyone should start releasing giant patch bombs as late as possible to troll linus and give us some epic mailing list flamewars to read.

        If our main goal is to produce that flame wars ... this should be done. Because the kernel developers really have skill at that. But actually I'd rater exploit ther programming skills more.

          I support that. Bonus points if the patches are a lot but tiny and create more breakage and mayhem.

            Up to 3.5rc6 suspend to disk worked with my netbook (atom n270, gme 945, 32 bit), 3.5rc7 broke it. Most likely too many intel gfx patches... stupid regressions.

              Micheal, where is the link the ML. If you are gonna do news articles that are just Mailing list messages at least link to the message so we can see the responses.

                Poor Linus...he's getting crapped on yet again or is he crapping on the devs for putting out huge patches?

                  nothing like spicing things up when they get rather dull and humdrum

                    I lol'ed at the discovery made in the talks of moving Microsofts hyper-v code out of staging, apparently they found the following constant:

                    #define HV_LINUX_GUEST_ID_HI 0xB16B00B5

                    I guess some guy at Microsoft hadn't been getting any for quite some time

                      But better have some patches again but then a stable and good working kernel than to release too early and things being in a flaky state.

                        I couldn't even build 3.5 yet (only a quick test and not really checked why), last I tried were 3.5-rc6. I have big hopes in it to be able to follow kernel releases again, my radeon card doesn't work properly since 3.4 release...

                        Maybe later at home

                          Linus Torvalds is complaining that the *rc7 for 3.5 kernel version is bigger than *rc6. This is a good thing because it adds fixes, improvements, and comments. I have no problem downloading a bigger kernel than before, but it better work though.

                          I rarely do kernel upgrades. If the new kernel fixes a problem that I had with my computer, I then upgrade. If it does not I do not upgrade the kernel. Following and upgrading after every kernel patch that comes out is just testing Murphy's law.

                            Linus doesn't care about the size of the kernel (much). He's complaining that people saved up all their fixes for a late rc when he would have preferred to have them come in earlier.

                              It doesn't really. With rc7 I have a good chance that the screen remains black on waking up from suspend, with rc6 it seems to work fine. Big changes = way bigger chance of breaking something.
