Question about updating to the latest STABLE version

Question about updating to the latest STABLE version

Post by Hanif Ladh » Wed, 31 May 2000 04:00:00

I think I have successfully updated are re-compiled the kernel to the latest
STABLE version.  I used the supfile as provided in the HANDBOOK for a stable

I recompiled and installed the kernel which is now at 3.4 (I had 3.1).

Question:  Is 3.4 the latest stable version?  I have come across posting
related to version 4 - is this the bleeding edge stuff?




1. Q: How do I get from the latest stable kernel version to the latest prepatch version ?

It just struck me odd that the latest is 2.4.2 while the prepatches were
2.4.3 so I figured there must be something I missed in between (my logic
told me that a 2.4.3 patch would be against a 2.4.3 something ;-).

BTW, I haven't seen any announcements from Linus in this mailing list
regarding new versions, just the updates on the web site and Alan's release
notes saying he's merging with 2.4.3xx. Are those announcements being posted
somewhere else now ?
