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!

EDITED:

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

2.6.34.13 dated 20 august 2012 is a minimal, real "active" response...
