Download of the day: Linux kernel 2.6.24

Posted on in Categories Download of the day, Linux last updated January 25, 2008

The Linux kernel version 2.6.24 has been released and available for download. From the announcement:

The release is out there (both git trees and as tarballs/patches), and for the next week many kernel developers will be at (or flying into/out of) LCA in Melbourne, so let’s hope it’s a good one. Nothing earth-shattering happened since -rc8, although the new set of ACPI blacklist entries and some network driver updates makes the diffstat show that there was more than the random sprinkling of one-liners all over the tree.

  1. You must be joking! Using a cron job to do system updates is insane, you never know when something is going to be removed against your will.

    If you update, do it knowing full well exactly what is going to be changing, FIRST.
