Re: [Linux-cluster] Stable to which kernel?

HI Bob,

Thanks! We will try it out soon. Can you tell me to which kernel the
stable release is compiled against?

Best Regards,
Hi Jaap,

To be perfectly, honest, I don't know which kernel it compiles against.
The problem is, the kernels are a moving target, and so is the cluster software,
because we're always porting improvements and bug fixes.  The only
information I could find around here said "a recent kernel" but that was
written quite a while ago, and I didn't take the time to dig very deep for it. I'm guessing some flavors of 2.6.17 or 2.6.18 but I make no promises.

I'm hoping to update STABLE so that it compiles against more recent
upstream (kernel.org) kernels, but I don't know when I'll get the chance
to do that.  I'm hoping to start on it next week.  Right now I'm targeting
2.6.20-rc6.  The problem, of course, is that it may impact other people
out there using STABLE on a different kernel.
