    1. Thanks for reporting. 098m is ready, just wait till this sync up release is stable.

  2. Built, boot, and running both Athlon X2 4800+ MCP61 and x86-UP Celeron-M netbook right now. I'm ready for 098m... :-P Thanks Alfred

  3. Haven't built it yet as I'm eagerly waiting for 098m... :)

  4. Unfortunately, my early picked opensuse vanilla 4.16.0 doesn't even "make xconfig" properly, so I'd wait for a better one.

    Don't hesitate with your 098m -- Syncups are needed, but boring -- and now, come up with the new stuff :-))

    1. There are leasson learn that combination of sync with feature causes trouble and hard to trace the root cause. So, every first release of new kernel series will just include the syc-up commits.

    2. @Alfred:
      Of course, you're absolutely right with your "syncups before new features" approach. Sorry for my crude proposal out of just -dumb- curiosity.
      BTW as side note: I've found the reason of my failing "make xconfig". I wasn't aware of a change in one of your older patches (the raid6 related one). Only today I was able to realize the error message and this circumstance.

  5. Can I test the 098m? 098l working excellent.

  6. +1 to beta test PDS 098m. Pls share a link...
