Kernel 2.6.31.5 for Mandriva 2009.1

Post by NicCo »

Updated Topic: date 2009/10/25 - time 18:55 p.m. (UTC +01:00)


Subject: Kernel

Description: Kernel 2.6.31.5 is the new stable kernel branch
The kernel package contains the Linux kernel (vmlinuz), the core of your Linux operating system.
The kernel handles the basic functions of the operating system: memory allocation, process allocation, device input and output, etc.
New stable kernel branch is not native for 2009.1, to be recommended only to those who have unsovable HW problems with the series 2.6.29.X, or MIB 2.6.30.X

Also tested successfull with VM software (as Host PC and Guest clients)
- Vmware Workstation 6.5.3
- Vmware Player 2.5.3
- Vmware 7.0 beta
- VirtualBox 3.0.8
- nvidia-current dkms drivers
- ati dkms drivers (new)

It works all flawless, it's very speedy and much more responsive than mdv
It works perfectly with the current Nvidia and ATI proprietary DKMS drivers

Kernel 2.6.31.5 for 64bit has been tested in 5 different Pcs, for 32bit in 4 Pcs:
all with positive results and none problems!

Suggestion: If you use proprietary drivers or other dkms

To make build proprietary video drivers (ati / nvidia) and some others dkms drivers, I remember you need to install also:
* dkms
* kernel-devel
