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][4], [bugtracker][5] and on the forum. Next mkinitcpio update will fix this
regression in the future. Arch Linux changes: - split kernel-headers to extra
package If you want to build external modules please install: pacman -S
kernel26-headers Please change your PKGBUILDS to makedepend on this package. -
