Subject: what kernel are folks running?
Date: Mon, 27 Sep 2004 08:46:46 -0700 (PDT)
I'm just curious what kernel ebuild folks are using on
Alpha. What are some of the reasons to use one over
another? I've been using vanilla-sources (currently
2.4.25) but I'm not doing anything serious or mission
critical; just basically something to play with. Are
there any advantages to using gentoo-sources or
alpha-sources?

I've also been contemplating trying out a 2.6 kernel.
If I do that, would I be forced to upgrade anything
else (like glibc for instance) and if so, would that
preclude being able to switch back and forth?

Sorry if these seem like "n00b" questions. I've never
gotten a handle on what makes things binary
incompatible in Linux (in general, not necessarily
Alpha specifically). Are such things spelled out
anywhere?

Jeff D
