Pegasos: Linux kernel 2.6.4 available
Sven Luther has created a version of the Linux kernel 2.6.4 which supports the Pegasos. He writes:

"Hello, I have made available a 2.6.4 linux kernel for the Pegasos I & II. It will need some wider testing still, and is missing the SFS support found in the 2.4.x kernels, but has been running stable on my box since the last week or so.

The config used in the prebuilt kernel is rather limited to what I have on my box though, so if you need more, write me about it, or build your own kernel.

The patch does apply cleanly to either the 2.6.4 kernel from, or the kernel-source-2.6.4 Debian package.

Also is now builtin the kernel, so I don't provide separate module package anymore, only the MOL modules. The stuff can be downloaded from here." (snx)
