  • Running Knoppix 3.6 on HD.

    Have build 2.6.9 kernel.
    Have downloaded r29 and debian diff files.

    How do I patch r29 for debian and then build r29.

    Need simple step by step instructions cos I cannot get patch to work properly.

    2. Anyone know why my lcd laptop screen goes blank with my own 2.6.9 build when I have vga=791 in lilo. I have tried every option I know of in .config when rebuilding 2.6.9 source.

    Thanks.

      The patch is for the debian X build.
      Check packages.debian.org.

      What laptop is this anyway.
