Exciting to see the latest kernel already available in slh spin.

I'll wait a bit and let others bite the bullet but I was wondering: where oh where are the release notes again? (I cleaned out my bookmarks a bit too rigorously it seems.)

Feels like the new kernel is speeding up the boot even more than before. My not so new x60, tested with auto log-in is ready to use 24 seconds from pressing the start-button or 14 seconds from grub start Smile I have no idea what the difference between the 2.xx and the 3.xx kernels are but I trust the the excellent aptosid team and did not wait for others to bite the bullet.

I assume that releases are safer than du.

Upstream changes are: http://kernelnewbies.org/Linux_3.0

Please don't try partial upgrades (= install only kernel), but do a full dist-upgrade as usual. There are a few packages in the archive which needed to be fixed to be usable with a 3.0 so it's not a good idea to miss out those fixes if you depend on - lets say - that your computer boots. Wink

(Hadn't any problem with it so far btw.)

No doubt at all, very fast. Add firefox 8 and it kicks ass !

firefox 8 is very fast and stable here, It is now my default browser, reminds me of the phoenix days Wink
