Kernel upgrade (and autostart-setup)

I’m going to make an attempt at upgrading the kernel on the server from 2.6.22 to 2.6.27 tomorrow, 8 January 2009. I’m going to start at about 12 CET. Hopefully it won’t take too long, but I suspect there might be some problems since it’s a big upgrade (not only the kernel version, but of the vserver patches). I don’t think it will take more than a couple of hours however, so everything should be back at maybe 15 CET at the latest (if nothing goes horribly wrong).

If things does work out as planned, we will have better IPv6 support after this is completed. Currently the only thing having IPv6 support is the main website, but nothing on Titan.

I also created a little helper script to set up autostart. If you run this script and specify irssi for example, the system will always start a screened irssi for your user when it boots up. This way reboots will go much smoother for you, especially if you have set up irssi properly with autoconnect and autojoin etc. You can run the script by executing: autostart-setup in your shell.
