2.6.39.2 is now available (has been for a few days now, didn't want to mention it earlier since I've been fiddling with my boot sequence).

2.6.39.2 has been updated to be compatible with systemd.

For everything besides Dreamplugs:
sudo ./README-PLUG-UPDATE.sh 2.6.39.2 --nandkernel (installs 2.6.39.2 to nand)

For Dreamplugs:
sudo ./README-DREAM-UPDATE.sh 2.6.39.2 (installs 2.6.39.2 to disk)

Kernel and modules are available from the following locations:

http://www.plugapps.com/mirror/with-linux/
http://sheeva.with-linux.com/sheeva/

Features e-sata, dmcrypt, IPV6, CIFS, NFS4, EXT3, EXT4, JFS, XFS, FUSE(for ntfs-3g), UBIFS, usb-serial, uvcvideo, iptables, appletalk, bluetooth, v4l and ppp.

It hasn't made it to the mirror yet.

I've been tweaking systemd on the sheevaplug for the last couple of days.  It is awsome!.  Fast, reliable bootup.  I can't say enough positive things about systemd.  It's a very well thought out init process.

systemd-analyze                                                                   
Startup finished in 3431ms (kernel) + 4909ms (userspace) = 8340ms

I started my migration to systemd about a month ago (had vacation in the middle of that) on my laptop.  I gradually got the booting working great.  Now I've done the Sheeva it's working great.  I've got about 4 more computers to convert now, they should be pretty easy though.  Most of the work in conversion is to build packages with .service and .socket files.

Yeah, the mirror has some issue with rsync that I've notified the mirror maintainer about.  Hopefully it'll be worked out soon, I saw him testing it today.

Would you be willing to share your download stats?  I'm just curious how many people are running updated kernels on the different platforms.

Hi,

 I have just upgraded one of my guruplugs and installed systemd, no tweaks, just installed and I'm impressed...now boots really fast!

Thanks a lot,

PacoLM

Since the download script "prefers" to get files from the mirror, it's pretty much impossible to get a valid number.  I did see about 8 different update requests come in at the same time from the same subnet.  I did a little sleuthing and tracked it back to an ISP with a web presence.  So it looks like someone is using it in a production style manner.

It's working fine with my debian wheezy on sd card sheeva plug, faster and with better memory management.
