Kernel Log: New stable and pre-release kernels, Ubuntu 8.10 with 2.6.27?

,----[ Quote ]
| The kernel developers have been busy in the last few days with several new
| Linux versions being released. Kernel versions 2.6.25.16 and 2.6.26.3 in the
| stable series have numerous fixes and minor improvements and some drivers
| such as the Highpoint hpitop driver have expanded their supported devices
| list.

Kernel space: udev rules, but whose?

,----[ Quote ]
| The management of udev policies is just one of the outstanding issues. So the
| upcoming Linux Plumbers Conference would seem to be well timed; there's a lot
| to talk about.

5 things you didn’t know about linux kernel code metrics

,----[ Quote ]
| I started with writing a small script that:
|
| * *1. downloads a 2.6.0 kernel, analyzes it using SLOCCount written by David
| * * * Wheeler
| * *2. patches to one step newer kernel and analyzes it using the same tool.
| * *3. goes to number 2 until patches run out at 2.6.26
|
| Just in case I also used a different tool called cloc to analyze the same
| code. Word of comment on tools used is at the end of this post.
|
| This script ate 477MB of disk space with tarballs and bzipped patches.
| 1. The kernel has just reached 6 millions lines with 2.6.26!

|
| Yes, indeed, with 2.6.26 we’ve reached over 6 million lines of code. You can
| see that on the chart on the right (click for a normal size version).
|
| Both SLOCCount and CLOC show similar results. What is interesting here is
| that:
|
| * * * there’s over a million of blank lines,
| * * * and a million lines of comments (which are of course important too),
| * * * the code shows a faster-than-linear growth characteristic,
| * * * if current speed is maintained I predict we might get 7 million with
| * * * 2.6.30 and 8 million with 2.6.33, just look at the forecast.
