packet-cd / News: Recent posts



There's a pre-release of the next version on the site -- it fixes a small bug, the main thing here is that it applies cleanly against 2.4.7 which was released just a day or so after the last release. Find it here:

or from one of the mirror sites.

__start___kallsyms missing

Compile will fail, if kdb is enabled in the kernel. The reason is that the file arch/i386/ is included in my diff exclude-list. Manually edit that file and insert

__start___kallsyms = .; /* All kernel symbols */
__stop___kallsyms = .;

after the section that has __start___ksymtab listed.

Or, you can just omit compiling with kdb in this release.
