Kernel 2.6 Project

The Linkstation Wiki 2.6 series linux kernel effort is divided into three projects, one for each architecture.
PowerPC - 2.6: DONE, up2date kernel available
MIPSel - 2.6: work in progress
ARM - 2.6: stock recompiled and succesfully loaded


There are instructions on how to Upgrade to the 2.6-kernel (ppc only). This is currently working on the LS1, LS HG, LS HS, and Kurobox and Kurobox HG.
