Hope that I post in the right place, please feel free to move this thread othervise.
I think it's great that DSL has started to be maintained again and it puts a smile on my face that it's using the 2.4 kernel since I am Freesco fan as well which uses the even older 2.0 kernel Smiley

Now, I remeber all the times I've tired DSL and it was very often I got stuck because DSL didn't have a driver for the network interface.
So my question is really if there any plans to upgrade the kernel in the near future, with the latest drivers.

Thanks in advance!


After some digging, I can se that the kernel has a never kernel , 2.4.31 instead of the older 2.4.26 - so I am guessing that it has a lot more to offer Smiley
So far, DSL runs fine on my virtual box but will check it out som more, again - great work Smiley
