Adding to my confusion is the fact that there is a debian package for
FreeS/WAN which requires a kernel patch. When I look at the kernel
patch package, it doesn't specify which kernels it will work with.
Does anyone have any experience with patching kernels with make-kpkg
and this kernel patch? With which kernels is this known to work
Thanks in advance,
