kernel version

Stephan Böni
Why does "make world" download the old 2.6.12 kernel and not the recent 2.6.13.4 kernel? How can i change that? (Because the 2.6.12 kernel version has some bugs.)

It will build the most recent 2.6.12.x release, even though it downloads the
2.6.12 tarball.  The Xen patch needs to be ported to 2.6.13, so there's not a
straightforward way of updating...

I believe this is supposed to be happening soon, though - I'm waiting on it
for the kexec feature.

Cheers,
Mark

The current OpenSUSE version 10.0 uses kernel 2.6.13 with a Xen
version pre-3.0. So it seams someone has done ist already.

With what it will build the most recent 2.6.12.x release, when
it downloads the 2.6.12 tarball? Magic? Or is the difference
part of the xen tarball?
