    The German edition of SuSE-6.0, I received some days before Christmas, is based on
    * glibc-2.0.7pre6
    * egcs-1.1.1
    * linux-2.0.36

    Most of the binary rpms are compiled against this setup (2.0.36!!).

    Many of the sources-rpms are rather recent versions - most of them are recent
    enough for 2.2.X. Some of the essential ones are too old, however (e.g SuSE still
    uses modutils-2.1.85). After upgrading to 2.2.0 requirements and fixing several
    nasty tiny bugs (6.*0* :-), I've finally been able to run kernels > 2.1.131 on top
    of SuSE-6.0 more or less stable. There still are some issues, some of them are
    SuSE-specific, some of them glibc/egcs/2.2.X related - Does that count as
    2.2-ready?

    Ralf.
