Re: [Linux-cluster] GFS for Linux kernel 2.6.16



Hallo,

thanks for your suggestions.

When do you decide to develop for a new kernel? Couldn't you store the code
in your releases directory and tag it before you start programming for a new
kernel version? In this case you will always have working releases for
various kernel versions.

I know and I agree :-) Unfortunately I am using a Xen kernel and standard
Xen builds only against version 2.6.16.

I will try to use this release and to build it against the 2.6.16 kernel.

I agree. This would make it much easier to find the matching sources,
especially for people who will download GFS for the first time (like me).
Since a version of GFS is build against a special kernel version I was
surprised that there is no identification of the source code (like the
tagging that Matthew mentioned above).
