Linus Torvalds: Linux-2.4.6-pre3

Jun 13, 2001, 01:57 (2 Talkback[s])
(Other stories by Linus Torvalds)
Date:   Tue, 12 Jun 2001 18:42:45 -0700 (PDT)
From: Linus Torvalds <torvalds@transmeta.com>
Subject: Linux-2.4.6-pre3

User-noticeable things: if you are tired of not being able to NFS-export
your reiserfs tree, this should make you happy.

VM tuning has also happened, with Rik van Riel, Mike Galbraith, Marcelo
Tosatti and Andrew Morton all doing various tweaks. Give it a whirl.

                Linus
