Linux News reports out of LinuxTag late last week have Andrew Morton, the second highest ranking Linux kernel developer, calling for a bug-fixing cycle to cut down on the growing number of bugs found in the latest kernel release. NewsForge contacted the number one man on the Linux project, Linus Torvalds, who acknowledged it might be the right time for a "bug cycle".

[i]Shoul I keep running 2.4 until Torvalds decide to fix the problem?????]/i]

Probably not - I've been running a (Gentoo) 2.6 kernel for 24 hours a day for the last 18 months. KDE (or applications running under KDE) crashed a few times, but there's been no other problems, and no problems at all that involve the kernel.

In that time there's been about 6 power failures here and my internet provider as stuffed up my 'net connection at least 4 times.

Overall the 2.6 Linux kernel is doing a lot better than everything around it... :-)

Maybe it's just the Slackware Linux 2.6 kernel that sucks?!

Just kidding, Patrick, we all love you ;-)

I might be wrong here, but AFAIK the slackware kernel sources are basicaly the official sources, without any Slackware specific patches. This is my understanding, feel free to correct me.
