    Phoronix: That Was Quick: Here's Linux 2.6.38-rc2 Kernel

    The Linux 2.6.38 kernel is shaping up to be very exciting even though it's first release candidate arrived just four days ago. Tonight, however, the Linux 2.6.38-rc1 kernel has already been superseded by the Linux 2.6.38-rc2 release...

    rear channels for 5.1 profile on Nvidia HD does not work on 2.6.38 RC. A bug report is filed. I reverted to .37 and all 5.1 channels are working fine.

    I tested nvidia 260.19.29, 260.19.36 and 270.18 with that kernel, worked without problems. Also fglrx installed with my script is compatible.

    Mhm, doesn't like nvidia-260.19.21 (via dkms) yet. Looks like the usual mess with include files..

    I've just come to compile it on a regular desktop (Gentoo).

    I've notice nothing to report till.
    Let's see.

    .38 RC1 had too many bugs.

    I got too many regression. I saw 1 kernel panic and HPLIP stopped working. So, I has to revered to .37. I need to read what was fixed and then give RC2 a try.

    How stable is this for a desktop environment? I want to try it out, maybe even stick with it. Can't wait for the stable version . Has anyone tried it? worked on it or rc-1?

    "about to leave on their annual mecca"

    That sentence makes no sense. I recommend 'pilgrimage.'
