Subject: [openwall-announce] Linux 2.4.35-ow1

Hi,

I've just put out the Linux 2.4.35-ow1 patch.  This is merely an update
to Linux 2.4.35.

The patch is available at the usual location:

	http://www.openwall.com/linux/

The single known security-relevant change added with Linux 2.4.35 is
correction of the randomness pool update bug discovered by the PaX Team.
Other than that, Linux 2.4.35 includes several driver updates that add
support for newer hardware (e.g., for new revisions of Intel's Gigabit
Ethernet controller as found on many recent motherboards).

Chances are that I will release another update of the patch soon.  This
is also the reason why I am not yet updating Owl to use this new kernel.
No promises, though.
