    Default Linux 2.6.36-rc5 Kernel Released; Fixes 14 Year Old Bug

    Phoronix: Linux 2.6.36-rc5 Kernel Released; Fixes 14 Year Old Bug

    The Linux 2.6.36-rc5 kernel is now available after Linus Torvalds has got back on track with the weekly release candidates after being at LinuxCon in Brazil. Of course, this later release candidate just targets correcting bugs and other issues, including a fix for a 14 year old kernel bug...

    Can't imagine there's too much 14 year old code left in there

    Just yesterday I saw a nasty old alpha on a datacenter

    Btw, I can find them, but it would have been nice to have a link to the release notes.

    In *bsd, os x is 25+ years old code.

    That's why Apple should have used Linux.


    Also, this new -rc5 still gives me the "IO-APIC + Timer doesn't work" KP as -rc4.

    the link for "improved desktop responsiveness" links to the wrong article:

    it's not the patches sponsored by Nokia (Mathieu Desnoyers and Peter Zijlstra) - it's the one with the headline: "Fixed: The Linux Desktop Responsiveness Problem?" (http://www.phoronix.com/scan.php?pag...item&px=ODQ3Mw)

    Just 'Alpha', capslock not required.

    It's only nasty because it's been in a datacenter for this long.

    Alpha is about the nicest instruction set ever designed. Check it out if that sentence means anything to you.

    What's wrong with old code?
