Which machine do you have? I have an XLT (Milo only machine) and it works fine with 2.6 kernels. Admittedly, I haven't upgraded in a while. I think I am running something like 2.6.14  or so.

If you want to ditch 2.4 kernal support someone will need to modify MILO to work with 2.6 series kernals.  The only reason that I am not currently using Gentoo on my Alpha is that I cannot get a working MILO for current generation kernals.  Unfortunately, I do not have the programming skills to do this myself.  If you or anyone else knows where I can get a MILO boot floppy for a 2.6 kernal, as recent a version as possible please, would you please reply to the list if appropriate or directly to me at 'right_maple_nut@...'.

Thank you in advance to all who reply.  I would really like to get my Alpha up and running.

Hi all.

2.4 kernels is generally the biggest problem when building new releases
and most, if not all should be able to use 2.6 kernels by now.
Considering that I'm currently only planning to provide 2.6 support for
the 2007.0 release and forward.

Please contact me if 2.6 kernels doesn't work on your alpha so we can
try to work out any problems in time for next release.
