== <s> Rename to AUR kernels </s> ==
I'd suggest to rename this page to "AUR_Kernels", updating the list (and dropping the core kernel26 entry, that anybody has installed anyway). The descriptions will need to be extended, though.
The AUR list as of 2008-04-18:
; kernel26-ice : The Linux Kernel and modules with gentoo-sources patchset and tuxonice support
; kernel26-openvz : OpenVZ enabled Linux Kernel and modules
; kernel26-xen : The Linux Kernel and modules with Xen support
; kernel26fbcondecor : The Linux Kernel and modules with fbcondecor support
; kernel26grsecurity : The Linux Kernel and modules, with the grsecurity patchset.
; kernel26rt : The Linux Kernel and modules with Ingo Molnar's Realtime Preemption patch (see [[Kernel_Patches_and_Patchsets#-rt]]). Useful (or ''needed'') when doing audio editing (esp. with jack-related apps).
; kernel26thinkpad : The Linux Kernel and modules, with IBM Thinkpad specifc patches.
; kernel26tp : Linux Kernel and modules for Thinkpad
; kernel26tp_plus : Kernel supporting all important IBM/Lenovo Thinkpad features and providing tuxonice
; kernel26tuxonice : kernel + tuxonice patchset
; kernel26vanilla : Linux Kernel and modules
; kernel26zen-git : and featureful Linux Kernel and modules based on linux-2.6 GIT tree
"Patches and Patchsets" and "Kernel compilation" is added. So this page become a more general kernel info page. [[User:Fengchao|Fengchao]] 04:48, 18 February 2012 (EST)
:I don't think the merge from [[Kernel Compilation]] can be considered complete, in fact now the article should get a new title (just [[Kernel]]??) and the introduction should be adjusted. Also [[Kernel Compilation]]'s subpages should be moved to the new title, and [[Talk:Kernel Compilation]] should be merged here.
:However I don't know if it was better having two separate articles as it was before (in this case also remember to undo [https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php?title=Linux-ck&curid=10797&diff=185168&oldid=185111&rcid=216735] and [https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php?title=Modprobed_db&curid=12881&diff=185170&oldid=178052&rcid=216737]). Please share your opinions.

== What is "Long" in the Arch world? ==
I suggest that some description of what "Long" means in the Arch world.  A user can't make an informed decision as to the usefulness of an LTS package without knowing its projected lifespan. [[User:MichaelRpdx|MichaelRpdx]] 10:32, 19 February 2012 (EST)
