Voyage Linux 0.6.5 released

By punkytse - Posted on 22 February 2010

Voyage 0.6.5, which includes 2.6.30 kernel, is released. Version number jumps from 0.6.2 to 0.6.5 to emphasize the kernel version update. Still, Voyage Linux 0.6.5 is based on Debian Lenny (r5.0)

Apart from kernel update to 2.6.30, 0.6.5 includes a number of enhancements in voyage.update and voyage-sync scripts, as well as the return of /ro directory. Perhaps there will be some updates to 0.6 prior to 0.7.0. 0.7.0 is however scheduled on 2010 summer if Debian "squeeze" is not delayed again.

[2010-02-25 Update]: For user upgrading from 0.6.2 (care should be taken in every step in the upgrade):

# remountrw
# apt-get update
# apt-get upgrade

To use the new 2.6.30-voyage kernel, first install it by:

# apt-get install linux-image-2.6.30-voyage \
    madwifi-modules-2.6.30-voyage \

For safety, add the follow entry the grub menu to /boot/grub/menu.lst such that you can fallback to 2.6.26 version:

title voyage-linux-2.6.26
root (hd0,0)
kernel /boot/vmlinuz-2.6.26-486-voyage root=LABEL=ROOT_FS console=ttyS0,38400n8
initrd /boot/initrd.img-2.6.26-486-voyage

Then reboot. If everything is OK with the new kernel, you may remove the old kernel by:

# apt-get remove --purge linux-image-2.6.26-486-voyage \
    madwifi-modules-2.6.26-486-voyage \

and the corresponding entry in /boot/grub/menu.lst.

Support or get involved in Voyage Linux!

[2010-03-23 Update]: Like 0.6.2, to avoid stuck beacon problem, you can downgrade madwifi driver manually by:

# remountrw
# wget
# dpkg -i madwifi-modules-2.6.30-voyage_0.9.4~rc2-1+7.0-1_i386.deb
