INFO about the SRPM build possibilities and rpm availability:
For ROSA Marathon we'll build Kernels LTS: 3.0, 3.2, 3.4, all the latest kernels up to the 3.11 series.
For ROSA Fresh we are building all Kernel versions starting only from the 3.6 to the most recent series
For "Cooker" we are building all Kernel versions starting only from the 3.8 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

Kernel 3.11.10 by MIB
This is prepared like the official one used for ROSA Desktop.Fresh 2012
this version is the prepared by MIB for Mandriva and ROSA development

Since October you could find some differences and news also in this mainline serie,
the reason it that we are in full development mode for ROSA 2012.1:
from version 3.5.6 we will release two new flavours and also their 32bit pae versions
  • kernel-nrj-laptop > It's optimized for laptop PCs, with a particular attention for cpu cooling and the battery lasting
  • kernel-nrj-realtime > It's optimized to have the lowest latency and so it's better for realtime apps like jackd, ecc...
