Hi, everyone...

I've been using a 2.4 kernel since I started with gentoo, about 2 months ago. I've been wondering about the advisability of migrating to a 2.6 kernel?

The other thing I've been wondering is whether there's a 'best' way to make the transition? I looked over the 'Gentoo Linux 2.6 migration guide', and it looks fairly straight forward. Has that been everyone's experience? Is there a better alternative?

I'm anxious to hear some opinions, before I make the change!

Thanks, in advance, for any input!


Chandra

its the easiest thing youll ever experience, and its even easier when you have a guide. 2.6 is a great kernel, i cant believe you still are using 2.4, well nm, i guess if it works, why bother changing something. Dont forget to you change your symlink.
