laptopkernel is a patchset for the linux kernel containing several useful patches for laptop-users.
It contains acpi, software suspend, supermount and some hardware compatibility patches. Look at the latest news-announcement for a complete list of patches.

Note: We, the authors of laptopkernel, did not write those patches. We just put together a nice collection of patches useful for laptops.

Why no new laptopkernels?
     posted by hanno, Wed 29 Oct 2003 10:22:34 AM UTC

Many of you have asked if there will be updated laptop-kernels in the future.
Probably there won't. Nearly everything that was part of the laptopkernel is now part of the main kernels (in 2.4 and in 2.6).
Only things left are software suspend and supermount. As they are not really laptop specific and you can easiliy patch them yourself, we see no need for any further versions of laptopkernel.
We suggest all laptopkernel-users to upgrade to the latest 2.4-pre-versions or to 2.6-test-kernels.
