Took some fiddling, yes. There were typos in the header files which
meant it just wouldn't compile, for example. And today:
rgh68k:~# cat /proc/version
Linux version 2.4.0-test7 (richard@mvme177) (gcc driver
version 2.95.2 20000313 (Debian GNU/Linux) executing
gcc version 220.127.116.11) #2 Wed Aug 30 19:20:44 BST 2000
I'll publish my patches when I've got it running on 162 and 147
as well - only tried on 166 so far.

For the MVME147 see
That points you at proper install images for a 147, many thanks
to Nick Holgate. All 147 patches are in the kernel-patch.deb for
