Hi all,

If you haven't already, could you please test out the xen/stable-2.6.32.x branch. It has been working fairly well for me, but I'd like to get some wider testing coverage before we make it the default branch.

To switch over, cd into your kernel directory, and type "git checkout xen/stable-2.6.32.x" and rebuild.

This kernel is currently based on The main missing feature from xen/master is that it doesn't have netchannel2. Is anybody using that yet?



for me it doesn't compile anymore :

make: *** [debian/stamp/build/kernel] Erreur 2

I compiled with "make-kpkg --revision=1.0 --append-to-version=-dae-dom0 kernel_image kernel_headers", and gcc version 4.4.3 (Debian 4.4.3-3).

Did I miss something ?

No, there was a silly typo in xen/stable. I committed a fix for it, but note that I'm specifically talking about xen/stable-2.6.32.x, which differs from xen/stable by having slightly experimental PAT support in it, which I'd like to shake out before saying "this is the ``official'' stable kernel".
