That's fstat64. I was wondering when I was going to start seeing the 64-bit
I've got a new kernel brewing with the SIGIO fix, some code to try to trap the
syscall 0 thing, and a few more syscalls hooked up. I'll add fstat64 and send
it to sourceforge, and let you know when it's there.

If you did dd of=filename rather than dd of=devname, then you got a normal,
not necessarily contiguous file. The kernel doesn't care.

I was originally against this, on the grounds that you don't change
environments all that often, and when you do, you might as well grab the
appropriate package, along with the latest kernel, since it doesn't add much
in terms of download time.
The idea has grown on me, though. If we get a good variety of enviromnents,
then people might switch between them more often, and this packaging makes it
clear that it's possible.
I would prefer to ship them as compressed tar files, though. People wanting
to try out a RH environment aren't necessarily going to have rpm available.
