RE: Kernel 2.2.13 is available
- Normally you don't want another kernel if you are happy with the present one.
Reasons can vary, most often mentioned are more hardware supported and some
security patches or bug fixes.
There are also some painful things about Linux kernel now, eg threads and
TCP/IP performance which need to be fixed. However, not every home user really
wants these changes. Again, AFAIK, 2.2.x doesn't cope with this. Maybe 2.4.x?
Whatever they say, 2.0.35 worked great here and I updated to .38 only to see
how kernel is normally patched and to compile some modules into it and to get
rid of others that were there by default (heavy heritage of COL 1.3)

I probably won't update my 2.2 kernel until USB support is a bit better.
