My mistake, Moe, that response was to bigpaws's answer.
As far as the PAM thing is concerned, I am aware it has nothing to do with the kernel, thanks.
As far as the USB 3.0 support, I was looking for the Linux Kernal number.
Ok, to all:
The Linux Kernel 2.6.31 number is the number that first supported USB 3.0. That's the answer I was looking for.
The VectorLinux 7.0 CORE ALPHA 1 release info didn't mention which Kernel is being utilized, but that's
OK. The answer could be discreet for security reasons. As long as it support USB 3.0 for my latest AMD build,
that's fine with me.
