If so, how many packages build / don't build? Actually while typing this email I've noticed that I tried to build world with old headers. I'll post about results tomorrow after full i686 and x86_64 worlds rebuilds. Sorry :( > > 1.

So it'd be 042stab056.11 now. OK. 1) I've enabled IPv6 for now -- we will enable it anyway and disabling it would force us to #ifdef many places. 2) Do we need a "/dev/cdrom" patch in init/do_mounts.c? I guess we should move the decision of real device identification from a raw device path to a label or smth. 3) We had no USB support in 2.6.18. I guess we need it now. 4) I'd vote for compiling wireless drivers as modules. Thanks, -- Vasily
