26 ноября 2006 Sergey Vlasov <vsu at altlinux.ru> 2.6.18-alt1

  • Version 2.6.18.
  • Renamed kernel variant from std26 to std.
  • Spec file reworked for use with gear (removed macros from Name, Version,
     Release fields, now using %name, %version, %release values to define other
     macros instead).
  • Moved to git - removed everything related to separate patch packages; now
     src.rpm contains only a single combined patch between the vanilla release and
     the packaged version.
  • Removed %set_kernel_arches and %get_kernel_config macros - config files are
     now included in the combined patch instead of separate source files.
  • Switched to gcc 4.1.
  • Updated %install for new location of internal bttv headers (some files were
     moved from drivers/media/video/ to drivers/media/video/bt8xx/).
  • Removed audio.ko and usb-midi.ko modules from kernel-modules-oss-%flavour
     (these OSS drivers were declared obsolete and removed from the kernel).
  • Removed all %__* macro abuse from spec.
  • Reworked kernel-headers-%flavour subpackage: now it contains headers
     sanitized for userspace (by "make headers_install") instead of raw kernel
     headers which were there in previous releases.
  • Moved kernel header files to /usr/src instead of symlinking include directory
     from /usr/include (should fix problems with broken build systems of
     proprietary modules).
  • Moved kernel sources to /usr/src/linux-%kversion-%flavour-%krelease
     instead of /usr/src/linux-%kversion-%flavour; old directory name is still
     available as symlink.
  • Added information about SMP alternatives to %description.
  • i586: Switched from CONFIG_HIGHMEM64G to CONFIG_HIGMMEM4G to avoid PAE
     requirement; a separate kernel variant with CONFIG_HIGHMEM64G will be made.
     Added notes about PAE and maximum addressable RAM to %description.
