Subject: kernel 2.4

after reading list archive i found:
>> Userland package not yet ready to support 2.4 kernel. Is there any
>> chance to use 2.4 kernel on Owl?

>Most things appear to work in practice.  Including insmod.  But I'm

can anyone confirm running kernel 2.4 on -current Owl?

propably ill do it very soon, but i like to know other
opinions/suggestions. Maybe someone can provide me list of
need-to-update-packages for 2.4 compatility?

I have to use 2.4 due to netfilter.

after digging in archives it was quite suprising for me that most
2.4-upgrade reasons were filesystem issues. 

For me Owl, with its security, is perfect match for firewall/router which
extremly needs flexible statefull firewalling code (netfilter) instead
old and feature lacking ipchains.
