Where can I get 2.6.11-rc1 kernel?

Hallo,
I have red:"... the latest linux-abi patch was linux-abi-2.6.11-rc1.diff.bz2. For this patch, you need to download the 2.6.11-rc1 kernel. "

So I am looking for 2.6.11-rc1 kernel, but I only can find 2.6.11.1

What does this "rc" mean? Is there a difference between 2.6.11-rc1 and 2.6.11.1 ?
I suppose yes. But where can I get it?

Thanks for help.
Philipp

In a kernel name rc means release candidate. This is a test kernel. From www.kernel.org the latest stable 2.6 kernel is 2.6.11.6

The difference from .11-rc1 and .11.1 is the rc1 kernel is an earlier kernel than 11.1. The .11.1 is a slight fix to 2.6.11

http://www.kernel.org/pub/linux/kernel/v2.6/testing/

Look there for 2.6.11-rc1 kernel source.

I don't know about finding a premade kernel for fedora.

Hope this helps.
