Release Notes: This release has 67 files changes, 3096 insertions, and 156 deletions from the previous release.
Release Notes: The build options were adjusted so that gcc stops hiding some possible bugs. Several remotely triggerable crash bugs in the R8169 driver were fixed. A few other minor fixes from various contributors were merged. Upgrading is recommended for r8169 users, if any.
Release Notes: This version contains all the fixes from 220.127.116.11, plus a few minor add-ons, such as better support for many recent SATA controllers, automatic unregistering of usb-storage devices, support for the rootdelay cmdline parameter allowing one to boot on USB devices, addition of the netfilter classify patch, support for AMD Geode's I2C, watchdog and RNG. Users of 2.4.36 are encouraged to test and upgrade, as 2.4.36 will not be maintained very long now.
Release Notes: Several SCTP fixes (including CVE-2008-2826). A fix for a missing capabilities check in sbni.c (CVE-2008-3525). A few sanity checks have been added to the PPPoE driver from 2.6. There is a conntrack fix and other minor fixes. Documentation has been added to explain how to build a compatible version of GCC on recent distributions.
Release Notes: Resynchronized with 18.104.22.168. Support for several IDE/PATA/SATA controllers. Assignment of SCSI devices with USB storage has been fixed. The "rootdelay" boot parameter and the CLASSIFY netfilter target have been added. A few other minor issues were fixed. Overall, this release should be rock solid and compatible with more hardware than 2.4.36.
Release Notes: This version fixes local security issues CVE-2008-1375 and CVE-2008-1669. Users of 2.4 are encouraged to upgrade (or to apply the fixes).
Release Notes: IDE support was added for JMicron 20363, and UDMA is supported on ICH7. A new protection against a kind of kernel bug exploitation was added (mmap_min_addr). All fixes from 22.214.171.124 are included.
Release Notes: This version contains the same fixes as 126.96.36.199, plus support for some new hardware (mostly new PCI IDs), the ability to use "notsc" on x86_64, the new e1000 driver, and a few other updates.
Release Notes: Two fixes were backported from 2.4.35-rc1: a divide by zero in the TCP Vegas code was fixed, and the random device driver did not reseed properly, possibly causing a security problem.
