Hi guys,

Is there any chance that the .30 kernel will be backported to
openSUSE 11.1, perhaps in the OBS? In general building the factory
kernel for the current stable distribution could allow a lot of
people to give it extensive testing, so it might really help. No idea
if it would require too much work

Hm, can you try taking the current FACTORY kernel and running it on
11.1? Are there dependancies that cause this to not work right now?

I expect wireless will not work - the regdb (?) needs to be compiled for
11.1 at least,

What do you mean by this? I have been testing moblin .30 kernels just
fine on 11.1 for a while now.

Ok, I gave 2.6.31 rc4 a try - and everything works so far including my
wireless without any regdb. So, I've proved myself wrong ;)

Andreas
