Subject: [gentoo-mips] 2.6.9-r4 marked unstable (~mips)
Date: Sat, 27 Nov 2004 12:42:31
1 For those users running unstable (ACCEPT_KEYWORDS="~mips"), I've marked
2 mips-sources-2.6.9-r4 as unstable. Those running Indy/Indigo2-class systems,
3 be wary, as this specific kernel version didn't stay up too long for me on my
4 Indy, but that was a bootcd kernel, and it probably had bugs. If IP22 users
5 get it to run for several days, then it's probably just my end.
7 IP32, IP30, and Cobalt users should have no problems running this kernel.
8 IP30 (Octane) users need to include "ip30" in their USE flags in order for the
9 ebuild to apply the Octane patch. Cobalt users will need to include "cobalt"
10 in their USE as well, but the Cobalt profiles should do this already. When in
11 doubt, check your `emerge info` output and see what USE flags are set.
13 This specific revision also includes several security fixes, including the new
14 CAN-2004-0883 (smbfs bug) fix, and a fix for a mips-specific ptrace vuln.
16 Users running stable setups probably don't want to play with this kernel
17 unless they know what they are doing. </disclaimer>
