    Phoronix: Linux 2.6.33 Kernel Released, Woohoo!

    Now that Linus Torvalds is done rewiring part of his house, he has put out the Linux 2.6.33 kernel release. This update to the Linux kernel that's coming three months after the release of Linux 2.6.32 delivers the Nouveau DRM GPU code in the staging area, many Radeon KMS improvements and it has left the staging area, the new VMware DRM, and much more.Well, that's mostly inside the GPU/DRM area...

    Quoting Linus:

    ?git is not an SCM. it's a filesystem designed to _host_ an SCM?

    ?In many ways you can just see git as a filesystem — it's content-addressable, and it has a notion of versioning, but I really really designed it coming at the problem from the viewpoint of a filesystem person (hey, kernels is what I do), and I actually have absolutely zero interest in creating a traditional SCM system.?

    Stupid 1-minute-to-edit.

    I think that large files with slightly changed segments between versions could share portions in the .git objects storage.

    Woohoo, It is working for me. No more Machine Exception Code. It starts automatically in DRI2 mode too. Great.

    Has anyone tried this kernel version already with Xen as dom0 or domU?
