Hi arch community, The new 2.6.32 kernel series moved to the [core] repository.
[Upstream changes][1] Arch Linux bugfixes/feature requests: [# added
CONFIG_PM_DEBUG][2] [# added CONFIG_MMIOTRACE][3] KMS changes: - changed intel
kms enabled by default - radeon kms is now disabled by default Please use the
modeset option to enable it. - Early userspace KMS support is broken at the
moment for radeon and nvidia cards. There are some workarounds posted on the ML
and on the forum. Next mkinitcpio update will fix this regression in the future.

external modules please install: pacman -S kernel26-headers Please change your
PKGBUILDS to makedepend on this package. - added xen support to 64bit kernel -
