Zack’s Kernel News

Article from Issue 132/2011

Chronicler Zack Brown reports on the latest news, views, dilemmas, and developments within the Linux kernel community.

The site has been down for a long time, but it may be getting some love in the near future. Jiri Slaby first reported that the site was broken back in June and was followed by a small chorus of interested folks who were also interested. For several months, there was no news, and Alan Cox speculated that the site might simply be gone for good.

Finally in August, Arjan van de Ven invited people to help fix the code. Andi Kleen remarked that it had been a very useful service, and that it would be good to get it working again. A couple of people expressed interest, including Bastien Roucaries, Arnaud Lacombe, and Josh Hunt, but, as of this writing, the site still gives the same error Jiri initially reported – a kernel version mismatch when trying to view recent kernels.
