Searching the net I often find hits that say coLinux has a patch for kernel 2.6.18 but nowhere is there a link!

It sure would be great to get patches for the newer kernels. Here is my dmesg:

dmesg | head -1
Linux version 2.6.17-co-0.8.0 (root@colinux) (gcc version 4.2.0 20070501 (prerelease)) #1 PREEMPT Thu Jul 5 20:42:01 PDT 2007

I have newest coLinux but it only supports 2.6.17 and the kernel.org site has kernels three versions newer.

    Have you an URL link, or a hash from GIT for the suggested fixups?

    hups. Sorry wrong answer in last thread here ---

    Kernel 2.6.18+ has an change on the GDT in booting phase. This is the show stoper for coLinux. You can not find any patches for coLinux.

    By the while, I'm work on kernel 2.6.22. This kenel version have many changes from para-virtualization project. :-) So, it's better for coLinux patch to.
    Current state is: It's booting, have console outputs, and than it stops with an kernel oops. The basic code, the switcher from host OS to Linux and back is full working - the non working rest is typical linux kernel hacking...
