I'd recommend the latest, 2.6.31, or even 2.6.32-rcX if you want to.
I'd like to get some people to test with Radeon kernel modesetting, so
at least .31 is required for that.

Excellent! Great to have you. :)
I've been working on Alpha-related stuff for about a year and a half
and have sent emails to linux-alpha@ (the kernel mailing list),
axp-list, the RH alpha mailing list, debian-alpha@, but the Gentoo
mailing lists looked unused, so I never mailed them before. Too bad.
Thanks for your help :)
