Sure, one could compile a newer kernel, but that way the Red Hat changes

The stated goals of Fedora are to stay as close to mainline upstream as possible. This includes the kernel.


[florin stantz florin]$ cat /etc/redhat-release
Fedora Core release 1 (Yarrow)
[florin stantz florin]$ uname -r
[florin stantz florin]$ lynx -dump
http://www.kernel.org/kdist/finger_banner | grep 2.4
The latest 2.4 version of the Linux kernel is:              2.4.26
[florin stantz florin]$

That doesn't seem to me like any kind of closeness to the alleged
"goals". ;-)

Closer to 2.6 in that case. =)

Seriously though, in 99% cases the only way you will get anything into the Fedora kernel is to convince upstream to include it. Upstream inclusion means that a LOT more users and developers will be using and supporting it than Red Hat or Fedora alone. That is a significant advantage that should not be overlooked.

Nudge upstream please.
