Testing kernel

I haven't been able to get back onto debugging Wary and Woof, as sidetracked by another problem.

Awhile back I reported a show-stopper bug with the kernel:

I never bothered to get that one sorted out with the kernel developers, as I thought that was the end of the line for that series.

However, recently Paul Gortman released, as apparently Intel are still using that kernel in one of their computers. 2.6.34.x is now re-classified as a "long term" supported kernel.

So, I contacted Paul and explained the problem that I had on one of my PCs. We are going to try and sort it out. To get the ball rolling, I built Wary Puppy with, and sent a preliminary report to Paul, various log files that show the bug.

Right now I am recompiling with my "special patch" that "fixes" the bug, and I will send a report on that to Paul also.

Go 2.6.34.x !
Glad to see you are working on kernel and that 2.6.34.x is now re-classified as LTS. Wary 070 with kernel worked very well on my PC and laptop.

2.6.34.x LTS = good
Glad this is LTS - it seems to have balance between functionality & safety, unlike some later efforts.

sounds good
2.6.34 as a long term is a good choice. Any chance you could release the patched source for 2.6.37 since its the most recent stable, so I (and potentially others) can tinker around with it? The Latest Intel graphics drivers require it.
