linux-2.4.22-ben2-stew1-xfs available

Okay, I admit that the -stew1 part is pure vanity – but hey, that’s what EXTRAVERSION is for, right?

A patch against stock 2.4.22 which gives you:
– benh fixes and features
– a fix for that annoying message on console when changing brightness (brightness down seems to generate a newline for me still, but it’s better than annoying text)
– XFS file system from SGI.

I have .debs if people are interested, can upload.


Other useful things to note:
– Firewire now works for me, I’ve even burnt a BeOS CD!
– A newer version of the HFS+ driver is out, head on over to
to grab a copy. See Roman’s recent LKML post for details.

as always, feedback welcome.

enjoy :)
