I thought it would be worthwile to mention my experiences with
2.6.24-rc1 on my x86_64 laptop.
It seems that i386 and x86_64 get merged into only one architecture
called x86. That brings a few issues with the current PKGBUILD, such as
files not being there to copy anymore. When every x86_64 tag gets
changed into just x86 though, everything is fine. I was able to cleanly
build and use madwifi, nvidia on the other hand failed to even just
build. Pretty much to be expected, huh? Anyway, I don't know how much
changed for our i686 side.
One out of 4 boots my machine hung right after detecting its discs. At
first I though it had to do with the new "tickless kernel" option but in
the end I wasn't able to solve it. I'm using sata-nv on a all nvidia board.
Anyway, just a little heads up for all of you in case you wondered
what's so special about .24. ;)
