Hello,

Are there plans to update the kernel on the alpine iso?

I couldn't boot it on an hp blade server. It failed at the hwdrivers part,
so I assumed it was a driver issue. But I was able to boot an ubuntu cd and
install alpine to hdd using 2.6.32 kernel from edge.

Thanks,
Cameron

yes, well...

The idea is to have alpine-2.0 out by april or something with NPTL. I
think we do need something that works before that. So I'm thinking of
maybe makeing an alpine-1.10 release with 2.6.32 kernel, and all the
stuff in current edge. And then start break stuff in edge with NPTL.

there was a driver for HP watchdog that have cause issues for us. I have
disabled the driver.

you could probably have created a small apkvol with a
file /etc/modprobe.d/hpwdt containing: "blacklist hpwdt"
