Kernel 3.4rc1 is out, and appears to be the new ‘mainline’ version, according to the website at www.kernel.org.. 3.3 is not even mentioned, any more..!
I just updated two of my systems (x86_64) to 3.4rc1, and everything seemed to be working just fine (see Update below..).. There are already fixes available for VMware and NVIDIA to work with this kernel version, thanks to excellent work (again..) by Stefano Angeleri (weltall.heliohost.org)
I had problems with DVB (HVR4000) with all the 3.3rc versions, and 3.3 final, but 3.4rc1 seems to have fixed them….
Next job is to update my Dreamplug (ARM5) to this version..
Update: Dreamplug updated:$ uname -a Linux rgdreamplug 3.4.0-rc1 #1 Sun Apr 1 18:49:57 BST 2012 armv5tel armv5tel armv5tel GNU/Linux
