Linux 2.6.32 Kernel Is Nearing An End: On Sunday marked the release of the 58th point release for the Linux 2.6.32 kernel by Greg Kroah-Hartman. The Linux 22.214.171.124 kernel now marks the passing of this kernel series into its extended-long-term maintenance window...
Linux 2.6.32 Kernel To Be Maintained Longer: With Ubuntu 10.04 basing off the Linux 2.6.32 kernel and this distribution release being a Long-Term Support (LTS) release that will be maintained longer than normal Ubuntu releases -- and other vendors using the Linux 2.6.32 kernel for their enterprise updates too -- this kernel will live on longer as well...
With Linux 2.6.32, Btrfs Gains As EXT4 Recedes: We have published articles containing EXT4 benchmarks many times now going back to our original real world benchmarks of EXT4 to when Ubuntu 9.04 received EXT4 support and when we ran a variety of file-system benchmarks on an Intel X25-E SSD. We had also thrown in EXT4 numbers when benchmarking Btrfs (and again with Btrfs 0.19) along with NILFS2 benchmarks.
Linux 2.6.32 Kernel Released: Just as planned, Linux 2.6.32-rc8 was the last test release and the final Linux 2.6.32 kernel is now available as of last night...
Linux 2.6.32 Kernel Benchmarks: With the Linux 2.6.32 kernel being released in a few days, we found it time to benchmark this newest kernel release that brings new drivers, kernel mode-setting improvements, virtualization enhancements, and more.
Jolicloud "Robby" Beta To Ship WIth Linux 2.6.32: In early September we featured an article on Jolicloud Linux, which sought to provide innovations atop Ubuntu Netbook Remix by enriching the experience for cloud computing and through their Jolicloud service to have easy access to various web-based applications.
The Linux 2.6.32 Kernel Is Near, RC8 Released: Linus Torvalds this afternoon put out the Linux 2.6.32-rc8 kernel release. The Linux 2.6.32 kernel, which brings 3D DRM and KMS support for ATI R600/700 GPUs, new wireless drivers, an improved VIA frame-buffer, and other improvements, is getting ready for release.
Linux 2.6.32-rc7 Kernel Released: While there is already work building up for the Linux 2.6.33 kernel like the just talked about KMS page-flipping ioctl, we are still in the middle of the Linux 2.6.32 development cycle. Linus Torvalds has just issued the 2.6.32-rc7 release after it was delayed by another serious -- but now fixed -- regression (this time in the resume support)...
Linux 2.6.32-rc6 Kernel Now Released: The Linux 2.6.32-rc5 kernel was released over two weeks ago, but it was not until today that 2.6.32-rc6 was tagged. This is not because of Linus's affection towards Windows 7, but rather the Linux Kernel Summit that was taking place in Tokyo and a nasty data-loss-causing EXT4 regression had to be tracked down and addressed.
Linux 2.6.32-rc5 Kernel Released: The Linux 2.6.32-rc4 kernel was released merely four days ago, but as planned, the Linux 2.6.32-rc5 kernel is now available. This release candidate that just accumulates four days worth of patches is coming due to the annual Linux kernel summit that is coming up and will take Linus Torvalds and other key kernel developers away for a few days.
Linux 2.6.32-rc4 Brings A Huge, Bloated Driver: As another Sunday release, Linus has made the Linux 2.6.32-rc4 kernel release. 60% of the patch for this release is the result of the addition of a single new SCSI FC driver. Linus refers to this SCSI driver as being "huge and bloated", but he has vowed not to merge "drivers-from-hell" anymore.
More ATI KMS Improvements For Linux 2.6.32: There's already a fair amount of DRM changes in the Linux 2.6.32 kernel including ATI R600/700 KMS and 3D support, but now nearly half-way into the Linux 2.6.32 development cycle there is a huge pull request of new ATI kernel mode-setting code...
