2.6.26 ARM and MIPS udebs on the way...

Otavio has updated kernel-wedge in SVN to 2.6.26, so I updated ARM and MIPS today. The udebs built after minor modifications and I can also build installer images after having fixed some bugs in the build process. I tested a 2.6.26 based image on the QNAP TS-409 (armel) as well as in QEMU (mipsel).

2.6.26 will bring major improvements on ARM. Orion support is much better and our 2.6.26 has a number of patches from Marvell that help with performance on Orion. Our 2.6.26 also has Riku Voipio's LED driver for Thecus N2100 which has been accepted for the 2.6.27 mainline kernel.

I haven't actually uploaded the udebs yet because I'm waiting for the go-ahead as well as for the new version of the 2.6.26 kernel package to build. But at least we're getting closer to having 2.6.26 as the kernel for lenny.
