For personal use anything is game;=20
2.2, 2.4, 2.6...or 2.5, 2.7 if you like.

But for (RAC) Oracle...Oracle documentation=20
is very specific about wich kernel you *will* use.

I must say that I like their evil ways with the kernel. So far, I've had =

the driver interface, and it fails to load) so I have to use orinoco =
which doesn't support WEP. Fun with nvidia drivers and 2.6 kernel is =
very well known, an the same goes for the ALSA drivers. Staying with 2.4
is a very smart move if we want a stable OS. The latest 2.6 kernel still =
has ways to go before maturing to acceptable level. I switched from 2.2
to 2.4 when 2.4.14 appeared on the market. I don't consider SuSE's =
eagerness to start proliferating the 2.6 version as a laudable move.
