Kernel 3.8.12 vanilla for ROSA2012 2012.1, MDV2010/11 cooker

Post by NicCo »


Kernel vanilla 3.8.12 for ROSA MARATHON (2012.0), ROSA Desktop.Fresh 2012 (2012.1) and OpenMandriva Cooker
Packages not available but remains the possibility to rebuild them also for old Mandriva 2010 and Mandriva 2011.0
For those who are greedy, MIB started preparing also of the Kernel with vanilla ...
Actually, Linux kernel 3.8.12 includes mostly the same changes as Linux 3.9.1 kernel...

This kernel is vanilla: with plain configs, no MIB or other patches, no third-party drivers:
that's the first packaging for kernel 3.8 series of vanilla kernel, so it needs to be tested...

INFO about the SRPM build possibilities and rpm availability:
For ROSA Marathon we'll build Kernels LTS: 3.0, 3.2, 3.4, and all the latest kernels up to the 3.8 series
For ROSA Fresh we are building all Kernel versions starting only from the 3.6 to the most recent series

For old distros Mandriva 2010 and 2011, we are maintaining build compatibility: you can also rebuild,
but we CANNOT prepare the rpms for You, as we have no chance to build with ABF or in our own PCs

Image (*) about our Availability notice, the phrase could have different meanings
"already" means we publish Topics when ABF started building our projects, it may need few hours
"still" means the above links are still valid until the project is recent, not obsoleted / then replaced...
