|@Key: DSL has chosen 2.4, so we won't be supporting both, or 2.6, at least in a while.|
Adding it would be relatively "easy", but it would mean extra work for Robert, and as DSL-N already has a 2.6 kernel..
I see and I agree.
On the other side, there will be more and more newer computers, which have problems with the 2.4.x kernel.
Maybe these problems have not been thought about before introducing the latest 2.4.x kernel version, as it has not been clearly known before, that there is a lack for support of newer hardware.
There are no news for DSL-N since almost a year now and with version 0.1 it seems that it is still in a really early status.
I would prefer exactly the same versions of DSL.
One with kernel 2.4.x (for older computers) and one with kernel 2.6.x (for newer computers), but no separation between DSL and DSL-N.
DSL is so flexible that further software can be added by the user itself afterwards.
I think there is no really need of a special DSL-N, but a need for DSL which will work on all computers.
Is there maybe an easy step by step instruction somewhere available, how the user can exchange the kernel by himself?
