Default 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?

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
