bkor was de eerste van velen die ons naar Kernel.org stuurde voor de nieuwe development kernel van Linux. In versie 2.5.69 is de bug opgelost die voor random crashes zorgde als X-server AGP gebruikte. Volgens Linus wordt het langzamerhand tijd voor een eerste release datum voor versie 2.6.x:
I finally found the reason for why some of my machines had trouble with
restarting the X server, and it turns out that it's been around since very
early February. I bet others must have seen it too, with random crashes on
X server restart when the server used AGP (which means that it mainly hit
either hw-accelerated 3D setups or the intel integrated graphics which use
a UMA model with AGP as the backing store).
That's a big relief for me, as it was the major thing I personally worried
about for 2.6.x.
Anyway, that's fixed here, along with a lot of other updates. Much of
2.5.69 is small one-liners to drivers to handle the new IRQ semantics, but
there's a lot of other cleanups in there too (Christoph Hellwig continued
on his devfs rampage, for example).
NOTE! As of this release I think I'll want to have patches either be
_really_ obvious, or they should go through one of more people for
approval. In particular, I'm hoping that the paperwork stuff with Andrew
should be getting closer to finalized, and that we could start moving over
towards a 2.6.x release schedule..
