Please do _not_ start a thread about this topic. Revising the lunar kernel
structure is being processed and we just introduced some very important
core changes to make the migration for every user (read every as in
'I'm-just-an-average-luser') go as smooth as possible.
There will be a stable, 2.6 branch kernel soon .. not today .. and not
tomorrow. Its going to be there 'when it is done'(tm). Period.



PS: I wonder why people hesitate to actually blame the GNOME developers for
requeiring the use of unstable and not well tested code (udev/2.6.x
kernels). But yet again .. thats just my two cents
