Simon (S2) (600188) writes "Dave Jones writes on his blog: "Working on an update kernel for Fedora 15, rebasing from 2.6.38 to 3.0.
As we know a bunch of userspace packages need updating to deal with the 2.6 -> 3.x transition, we made a decision to ship 3.0, but call it 2.6.40 rather than ship a ton of updates, and risk breaking other code that we don't ship.""

  • ul
  • li
