I've read the UML home page and I've browsed all the information at
blaisorblade's web page, but I'm still lost... I'm using the 2.6.16 kernel and
I'd like to compile the guest UML kernel. The vanilla version of this kernel
won't work, so I read that I need to apply 'jmpbuf' patch and try again. This
allows me to compile, but do I also need to apply all the patches for 2.6.16?
If so, which one?
http://www.user-mode-linux.org/~blaisorblade/patches/guest/ shows two options,
uml-2.6.16-bb1 & uml-2.6.16-bs2
this location, http://user-mode-linux.sourceforge.net/work/current/2.6/ has
versions 2.6.16, 2.6.16-rc1 through rc5
Should I not worry about these additional patches?
somebody please point me in the right direction.

This is what I did :-
1. Patched vanilla kernel [linux-184.108.40.206.tar.bz2] with uml-2.6.15-bs2.patch.bz2
2. "make linux ARCH=um" failed in registers.c
3. Applied patch found at
4. UML kernel then compiled and ran successfully.
Though you are trying 2.6.16 kernel, the above steps should work I think.
