woody kernel security build status

dann frazier
Here's the current status of the woody builds:
  http://wiki.debian.org/DebianKernelWoodyUpdateStatus

This should put all the woody kernels on par with Joey's
kernel-source-2.4.18 (2.4.18-14.4).

Any testing you can do would be greatly appreciated; that's the biggest
hole right now.

Can anyone help out with the mips build?  I don't have a working mips
box.

BTW, for the apus woody kernel, i believe none really uses them, or maybe 3
persons or so, and i doubt you will get any tester.

Friendly,

I could install and boot the kernel from
kernel-image-2.4.18-1-686_2.4.18-13.2_i386.deb without problems. (On a
Celeron (Coppermine) running woody...)

The only problem I have encountered, that I didn't have a
kernel-image-2.4.18-1-686 package, but only a kernel-image-2.4.18-686 ?!

The wiki-page is updated.


regards,
        Holger

Thanks Holger.
>From what I understand, kernel-image-2.4.18-1-* supersedes the other
package.  In other words, kernel-image-2.4.18-1-686 is a source package
replacement for kernel-image-2.4.18-686.  At least, the latter is the
only one that was getting security patches.

Can anyone confirm this for sure?

btw, I've tested one of the ia64 flavors & it was fine too - wiki
updated to reflect this.
