    Smile Next Linux Kernel Version could be 3.0 (or 2.8) and could be out by this July 2011!



    Well, if you have not seen this, it seems that there is a chance the next kernel number might jump to 2.8 or even 3.0. Here some articles you might want to read:

    Yep,

    it seems the change is already done on the GIT of Linus. So we're heading for a 3.0 release.

    Wow, what a change. I never thought I might see such a thing, but there it is (Kernel 3.0-rc1), http://www.kernel.org/pub/linux/kern....0-rc1.tar.bz2 for everyone to download. Thanks for the heads up dale14846. I do wonder what such a radical kernel version change will do for the many things that might check for the actual kernel version? I guess that we will see.

    Well I downloaded and compiled kernel 3.0, but the most recent nVIDIA driver (and even latest beta) complained that it was not version 2.6, so here we go. I have no idea what else may need an upgrade to use kernel 3.0, just due to the imbedded kernel version. It will kind of be like the year 2000 all over again.

    Thank You,
    Kernel 3.0, Gnome 3 .... and a certain amount of synchronicity! There will be more "kernel version" hiccups, and it makes we wonder if the first 3.0 (-rc1?) might be a "rabbit" (or ... a "bogey" or "buffalo") to help flush out these little things waiting in the field.

    Smile Kernel 3.0 Source Code now Missing in Action!

    Well I noticed just today that the mainline at kernel.org is alleged to be kernel 3.0-rc2 yet, no full source code exists for you to download for rc1 or rc2. I did get the source for rc1 when it was online, but now it is all gone. Still no nVIDIA driver I can find that claims to load with kernel 3.0-rc1 either.

    So does anyone know what is going on with the lack of source being posted online for kernel 3.0 at kernel.org?

    Dale that is the source code to rc1 which I did already download and I know how to install the nVIDIA driver the hard way, but even the latest beta does not like the kernel 3.0 revision number and will not install.
