Rename to AUR kernels

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. Fengchao 04:48, 18 February 2012 (EST)

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. MichaelRpdx 10:32, 19 February 2012 (EST)

It depends on upstream. thestinger 20:18, 19 February 2012 (EST)
