d-i + kernel 2.6.10D-i team and RMs already decided to use 2.6.8 for Sarge. Well, it may be bad news for someone who has newest hardware. But seriously d-i has been damaged by new kernel many times... I remember how terrible was it.
Today, I tried to make x86 2.6.10 d-i image just for test. Yes, that was not straightforward.
- I arranged kernel-wedge files and create kernel udeb file from kernel-image-2.6.10-1-386. DELETE: ds ADD: pcmcia, ahci, sata_uli
- 2.6.10 vesafb driver looks broken or its interface is changed. modprobe vesafb won't return error even if it couldn't install...(installed, but can't use by "probe of vesafb0 failed with error -6") I needed to modify rootskel to force load vga16fb.
Because I didn't modify discover, I suspect ahci and sata_uli won't be detected automatically. (I haven't a machine with these SATA interfaces)
Separated.After considering, I separated off-topics (unrelated with Debian) from my blog. Someone may like off-topic, but other one may dislike it.
Now I feed only Debian topics for Planet Debian (http://kmuto.jp/b.cgi/debian/index.rss). You can still see all topics from http://kmuto.jp/b.cgi/index.rss. If your interest is only cooking, please take http://kmuto.jp/b.cgi/cook/index.rss.
BTW, I ate Sushi yesterday :-)
