Currently I'm running my own custom 2.4.18 kernel, but on
bridge.sourceforge.net I read that I need to apply the patch
Is there no patch for 2.4.18?
1) Do I need the 2.4.19 source to apply the patch, or would the patch
work on 2.4.18?
Sometimes ist works, sometimes it doesn't. It is much much better to
use the right sources.
2) If I need the 2.4.19 source "how"/"where" do I get it. Running
dselect, as I could for the 2.4.18 source, doesn't offer me anything
above 2.4.18 :( I use the ftp at ftp at de.debian.org
look at www.kernel.org, use make-kpkg to build *.deb
3) Can I still use kernel-package with a 2.4.19 kernel, as the Debian
Installation Guide suggests? Do I need to do anything special, or will
kernel-package just work with any kernel? (I'd do with by trail and
error but my box takes about 5 hours to compile the kernels.)
make-kpkg works with every kernel, which compiles well
4) While I'm asking stupid questions: dselect only offers my the
brigde-utils 0.9.5, but the current version seems to be 0.9.6. Do I need
that, and if so, how do I get/install that package with/without dselect?
Debian often uses "older" version, bcause they are more secure. Get
the source of your program an use dh_make and dpkg-buildpackage -us
-uc to build your own package. (You also can upgrade to sarge, but
woody is still more stable)
