Is 1.3.69 most recent most stable?

Post by d.e.e » Sun, 02 Jun 1996 04:00:00



I downloaded what I read was supposed to be the latest kernel,
compiler, utilities, etc... for building the new kernel.  It
seems to have blown up and, being a linux newbie, I'm not sure
why.  (Having two 300Mb+ linux partitions prevented self
inflicted disaster.)  Is 1.3.69 more stable than 1.3.100?  What
order do I rebuild a 'new' system.  I don't mind the pains of
learning one's lessons.  I *would* like more info on what
modules, gcc, etc... go together.  Do I recompile gcc.latest.
then linux.new.cool.stuff....?  Then modules, utilities, then
everything else I can't live without?...   I would appreciate any
information (even constructive sarcasm would be better that
stabbing in the dark).  Thanks....   Dale

read the "Changes" file in the "Documentation" director of the linux
source, it will explain in great detail what needs updating for the
newer kernels.

You want sarcasm??????

anyway, linux 2.0 is released. you can get it at sunsite.unc.edu
the source distribution comes with a file describing all upgrades
necessary in the directory Documentation of the distribution.

That constructive enough? ;-)
