Neither. mm6 :)

This is a good kernel, nice and snappy.

Does it contain mode-switch-in-fbcon_blank.patch? If so, I will need to reverse it as it messes with my radeon fb.

I get a kernel crash upon bootup. I get a crash upon loading vesafb. I cannot find the cause as my resolution is so huge. I made sure to change my grub settings to the ones given. No matter what I put, vesafb crashes. Anyone else?

no, it uses nick's VM patch which includes something equivalant in function to auto-swappiness.

I had a similar problem, if you have an ATI card, remove the VESA support and add radeon in the kernel fb support. You may have to reverse the
mode-switch-in-fbcon_blank patch if you have video corruption upon exiting X.

Here's an ebuild based on 2.6.7-love5.

Haven't tested the kernel yet, but I hope it solves those weird kernel panics that I experienced in love5.

compiled and working great here,

not sure of http issue, do you recommend any bandwidth test website to test connection like www.bandwidthtest.com?

Great - For the first time in ages I can now CTRL+ALT+F1 and see legible text, no more monitor switching off, or as in last love, Blocks all over the place on switching back to console.

Well as opposed to the previous -3 patch to love5, vesafb-tng works fine again for me in this kernel. :)

1600x1200-32@70 works perfectly regardless of whether I've started X or not. Thanks for the effort Mafteah!

Sorry to delay this so long, real life keeps getting in the way of coding time.

Mafteah: Bootsplash appears to be improperly adjusted to the mm sources in the patch you used. As a work around try http://ljones.com/bootsplash-3.1.4-2.6.7-love6-fix.patch on top of love6 to correct the placement of 2 hunks and let me know if that helps with your initrd problems.

vesafb-tng means you can dynamically change your fb resolution. Bootsplash as it currently exists is not designed with this posibility in mind. Do NOT attempt to change resolution to a size or color depth different from the bootsplash settings. I'm trying to work out a patch to make this safe but no luck so far with the mm frambuffer changes. :(
