SubjectRe: Linux-1.3.88 - Code Freeze

Hello Linuxers,
I think this code freeze is good, but please, try to look at the serial
drivers in the present kernel.
I installed linux 1.3.87 and 1.3.88 and could not connect to my school
machine not by slip, ppp or evn kermit. Earlier kernels worked for me.
Please, Help !!! I going crazy not been able to surf the net.
