2011-07-11Documentation/Changes: remove some really obsolete textLinus Torvalds
That file harkens back to the days of the big 2.4 -> 2.6 version jump, and was based even then on older versions. Some of it is just obsolete, and Jesper Juhl points out that it talks about kernel versions 2.6 and should be updated to 3.0. Remove some obsolete text, and re-phrase some other to not be 2.6-specific. Reported-by: Jesper Juhl <> Signed-off-by: Linus Torvalds <>
2011-03-22Documentation/Changes: minor correctionsChristian Kujau
I noticed the 'mcelog' program had no comment and then ended up "fixing" a few more things: * reiserfsck -V does not print "reiserfsprogs" (any more?) * is "udevinfo" still shipped? udevd certainly is * grub2 doesn't have a 'grub' binary * add a "# how to get the mcelog version" comment Signed-off-by: Christian Kujau <> Signed-off-by: Andrew Morton <> Signed-off-by: Linus Torvalds <>
2010-07-11Documentation update broken web addressesJustin P. Mattock
I've found some web addresses not responding, giving the cannot connect error when trying to load them. The below patch updates the addresses that are not connecting with the best that I can find, and also fixes a couple of addresses, so people can either choose an older version of the package and/or a newer version(i.e. ppp).

2009-06-18Documentation/Changes: perl is needed to build the kernelJose Luis Perez Diez

2005-10-28[PATCH] update required version of udevGreg Kroah-Hartman
The 071 release is needed to handle the input changes. Older versions will work properly with module-based systems, but not for users that build input stuff into the kernel. Signed-off-by: Greg Kroah-Hartman <>
2005-09-28[PATCH] fuse: add required version infoMiklos Szeredi
Add information about required version of the userspace library/utilities to Documentation/Changes. Also add pointer to this and to FUSE documentation from Kconfig.

2005-06-30[PATCH] pcmcia: update DocumentationDominik Brodowski
As the information is now exported via sysfs, there's no need for an userspace tool any longer. Signed-off-by: Dominik Brodowski <> Signed-off-by: Andrew Morton <> Signed-off-by: Linus Torvalds <>
2005-06-27[PATCH] pcmcia: add some DocumentationDominik Brodowski
Add some information useful for PCMCIA device driver authors to Documentation/pcmcia/, and reference it in dmesg in case of hash mismatches. Also add a reference to pcmciautils to Documentation/Changes. With recent changes, you don't need to concern yourself with pcmcia-cs even if you have PCMCIA hardware, so the example above the list needed to be adapted as well.

2005-06-24[PATCH] oprofile: report anonymous region samplesJohn Levon
The below patch passes samples from anonymous regions to userspace instead of just dropping them. This provides the support needed for reporting anonymous-region code samples (today: basic accumulated results; later: Java and other dynamically compiled code). As this changes the format, an upgrade to the just-released 0.9 release of the userspace tools is required. This patch is based upon an earlier one by Will Cohen <> Signed-off-by: John Levon <> Signed-off-by: Andrew Morton <> Signed-off-by: Linus Torvalds <>
2005-05-01[PATCH] DocBook: Use xmlto to process the DocBook files.Martin Waitz
xmlto uses standared XSLT templates to generate manpages, (x)html pages, and XML FO files which can be processed with passivetex. This is much faster than using jadetex for everything. This patch also reduces the number of kernel-specific scripts that are needed to generate documentation.

2005-04-16Linux-2.6.12-rc2v2.6.12-rc2Linus Torvalds
Initial git repository build. I'm not bothering with the full history, even though we have it. We can create a separate "historical" git archive of that later if we want to, and in the meantime it's about 3.2GB when imported into git - space that would just make the early git days unnecessarily complicated, when we don't have a lot of good infrastructure for it. Let it rip!
