  • a/e2fsprogs-1.41.3-i486-1.tgz

    for sound cards).
  • a/kernel-generic-2.6.27.5-i486-1.tgz
    Note that some drives that were previously seen as /dev/hd? might now show up
    as /dev/sd?, so be prepared for that possibility. This should only happen on
    machines that could have used libata with hd?=noprobe, but did not. The
    CONFIG_PATA_LEGACY (libata, /dev/sd?) is the default now for PATA controllers
    that require a generic driver.

    Thanks to Robby Workman, Piter Punk, Eric Hameleers, and Stuart Winter for
    helping to update these packages! There are still various trivial fixes that
    need to happen in other packages, and other updates to consider as well. Now
    that we have a new kernel (with the TCP options ordering problem fixed), I hope
    there will be time soon to look at those things.
