Kernel 2.6 impressions. I've just upgraded my laptop from kernel 2.4 to 2.6, and finished screwing around with various configuration files. So far, everything seems to work very nicely, including features which were hopelessly broken in 2.4. Combined with a good hardware autoprober, this could be a pretty user-friendly kernel.
The new scheduler has improved interactive responsiveness tremendously, too. I can actually use my computer while exim delivers a large mail queue through expensive procmail filters.
So far, it's a winner. Does anybody know of a decent hardware autoprober for Debian?
