I'm going to move the toolchain out of testing, so need a short news
item about the minimum kernel version.
Minimum required kernel version increase
The update to glibc-2.12.2-1 increases the minimum required kernel
version to 2.6.27. This kernel version was chosen as it is currently
the oldest kernel with longterm support upstream. Users of the Arch
"kernel26" and "kerne26-lts" packages are unaffected by this change.
Those wanting to continue use an older kernel version will be required
to rebuild the glibc package with the appropriate adjustment made to the
"--enable-kernel" configuration option.
