I've been seeing sporadic mentions of 2.6.x kernels in development for the 6000 (Tosa).

Can anyone comment on how close we are to having a stable *modern* kernel?

Thanks,
Randall

You'll find images in the first one. Download, flash, and see for yourself! smile.gif

I'm running the latest test image on my tosa and it's rockin'. I wouldn't say it's release-ready, but definitely coming along. But like I said, see for yourself.

I would agree with vorondil28 that it is not release ready, but I have been using it on my tosa for several weeks now for my daily uses. My uses is not that great at this point consisting mostly of note taking, watching videos, calculator and irc.

I would also recommend trying it, expecially if you are using OZ already.

OZ 3.5.4.2-alpha1 for tosa/poodle with 2.6 kernel soon (not this week anyway). This will be experimental version for testing.
