2.6.8 is out ;D
 
Anyone try it yet? I'm still stuck with 5xxx drivers because of stability problems.. perhaps 2.6.8 addresses this issue?

2.6.8RC2 solved my stability problems with 61.xxx drivers.

Give it a try.

Just compiled & booted it. Cant enable AGP for my GeForce4 MX 440 with AGP8X. So I have to return to 2.6.7.

BTW, 2.6.8.1 is out to fix the NFS oops problem.
Don't use the vanilla 2.6.8!

Cheers,

There's a problem with 2.6.8 and NFS and the 2.6.8.1 patch adresses this issue, s'all.

If you don't use NFS, don't bother, if so just patch to 2.6.8.1 ...that simple :D
