over the last 3 major SuSE Linux releases, the 2.4
kernel has become the default kernel.. for performance
reasons, i have certain services the i run on the
2.2.19 kernel because they are much faster than when i
use the 2.4 kernel....
i am running this 2.2.19 kernel on the SuSE 8.0
release, and i have no problems at all.. since the
default 2.2.19 kernel that comes with earlier versions
of the SuSE, up to SuSE Linux 7.3 i guess, has no
support for some options, i had to recompile the
kernel using the lx_sus22 RPM from the SuSE FTP server
that has the SuSE-customised 2.2.19 kernel
now, i would like to know if there are going to be any
compatibility, security or design issues if we
continue to use the 2.2.19 kernel with later versions
of SuSE Linux, including SuSE Linux 8.1, without SuSE
giving that much support on the 2.2 kernel in
general..?... an example of the problem would be where
the ReiserFS file system has a 2.2.19 "reiserfs.o"
module compiled, but SuSE Linux 8.1 has shipped with a
higher or modified version of the "mkreiserfs"
utility.. what happens then..?..
all help appreciated...
