Subject: [gentoo-announce] linux-sources-2.4.17-r4 released
Date: Wed, 13 Feb 2002 23:04:03
Hi All,

linux-sources-2.4.17-r4 is here, and includes the following changes from

* xfs was updated from "26 Jan 2002" to "13 Feb 2002"

* ide patch updated from "01192002" to "02072002"

* preempt patch was updated from 2.4.17-1 to 2.4.17-3

* irqrate-a1 was removed (closing bug #396 and possibly others)

* acpi-20020208-2.4.17 was added but then removed.  It conflicts with
  stock aic7xxx SCSI driver and a bunch of other stuff; bug report sent
  "upstream" to their bug tracker at and also recorded in our bug
   tracker at .  We will add 
   this patch back once these various issues have been resolved.

Generally, everyone should upgrade but those who have had no problems
with -r3 and need the updated ACPI functionality in -r3 should probably
stay where they are.

Best Regards,

Daniel Robbins                                  <drobbins@g.o>
