Subject[ANNOUNCE] Linux 2.5.34-ct1
It's all  about the new  IDE code, some  User Mode Linux,  and keeping
things clean. I've had to punch out my Tekram fix, since the driver
seems to have messed up further in the meanwhile.

I'm especially interested in Alpha testers these days, so please try
it if you have your Alpha around.

You can get the diff against Linux 2.5.34 at

For the sake of security our staff decided to put aside the ftp
server, so don't wonder why I'm releasing it via HTTP.
