Written by Michael Larabel in Linux Kernel on 3 April 2006 at 01:00 AM EDT. Add A Comment
With two weeks since the 2.6.16 kernel was released, the first release candidate has come out for 2.6.17. Both the short and long change-logs are quite huge. Among the many changes is merged support for Sun Microsystem's Niagara architecture, and according to Linus Torvalds there is also a lot of other stuff going on with DVB re-organizations, nfs/knfsd updates, x86_64/parisc/mips/powerpc updates, ALSA, SCSI, and Infiniband. More clean-ups are also done under the hood. As always, these tarballs and other patches are available from the Linux Kernel Archives.
