-stable: Linux 2.6.17.8

Aug 08, 2006, 21:00 (0 Talkback[s])
(Other stories by Greg Kroah-Hartman)

We (the -stable team) are announcing the release of the 2.6.17.8 kernel.

I'll also be replying to this message with a copy of the patch between 2.6.17.7 and 2.6.17.8, as it is small enough to do so.

The updated 2.6.17.y git tree can be found at:
      git://git.kernel.org/pub/scm/linux/kernel/git/stable/linux-2.6.17.y.git and can be browsed at the normal kernel.org git web browser:
      www.kernel.org/git/

thanks,

greg k-h
