Has anyone made 2.6.40 packages install on F14?
successfully compiled and installed 188.8.131.52-2 on FC13. I don't
use systemd either. Obviously, I've had a few upgrades to do, but those
were compiled in from source rpms using dependencies based on what I
have in FC13. I also upgraded the entire xorg/gnome stack with what is
currently on FC14 - 2.32 if I am not mistaken (and no, I am *not* moving
to gnome 3 before anyone asks).
The same kernel was compiled for a different arch on the same machine (I
am on x86_64, the target I used was i686 - PII) and used for building a
distribution images with the help of kickstart - again, that was
completed with no issues.
I have been using the 2.6.40 branch of the kernel for quite a while now
(having been on 2.6.38 previously - all on FC13) and apart from a few
problems with nouveau, which I am pleased to report have now been
cleared - more or less - I have had no issues with this kernel at all.
