Debian and its clones What a lovely holiday to release the latest and greatest creation brought to us by yours truly, Debian.

Works fine here. You can always get a newer kernel from Or you can start tracking Squeeze or Sid and wait for an updated Debian-packaged kernel. Or you can try the experimental Debian kernel builds:
