Isn't the 2.6.28.8 basically just 2.6.28.7 with 2.6.29rc5 backports?

No mate, the ubuntu kernel team git web is last tagged from upstream as .6. You can look on their git web. Ubuntu is missing the latest .7 change from Feb 20th.

Wow. If that's the case, then Ubuntu Kernel Team's naming scheme is absolutely horrid.

Well, first you should have a 2.6-28-8 kernel

The EXT4 changes should already be within -8 kernel


"The master bug" for EXT4 data losses.

This issue should be fixed with 2.6.28-7.18. I cherry picked a number of patches that Ted Tso is submitting for stable kernel updates which he says fixes this data loss problem. Please confirm.

But maybe there are more fixes coming ?


I cannot see any diff between RC5 and the -8 kernel

What mainline does 2.6.28-8 correspond to?

What mainline does 2.6.28-8 correspond to?

Vanilla-2.6.28.6 was imported 3 days ago.

http://kernel.ubuntu.com/git?p=ubuntu/ubuntu-jaunty.git;a=shortlog

But after that several patches and changes.

Nullack, you are confusing the hell out of me.

According to you: 2.6.28-7 = 2.6.28.7

Is this the case?

No. The "-7" means only the ABI-Version of the Ubuntu-kernel. It does not correspond to the minor-version (e.g. 2.6.28.7) of the vanilla-kernel.

Ubuntu-kernel 2.8.28-8 = vanilla-kernel 2.8.28.6 + Ubuntu specific patches

I must reiterate. That labelling is stupid as hell.

You guys are all confused. Look at this:

http://kernel.ubuntu.com/git?p=ubuntu/ubuntu-jaunty.git;a=shortlog

Note the tagging:

3 days ago
Greg Kroah ...
Linux 2.6.28.6

So 3 days ago they did upstreams 2.6.28.6, and now on Feb 20 upstream is at 2.6.28.7, which we need, in particular lots of ext4 fixes.

Looking at the log all of those ext4 changes in 2.6.28.7 are already in Ubuntu's sauce (backported from 2.6.29). But dont worry anything else missed will be merged soon enough.
