Hello, I'm back to home :-))
Sorry for the very late reply.  I just discovered your email among a lot of
others (>1000).

2.2.5 was built by Steve Dunham.  Don't know which config file he used exactly.

My development system is still full slink (2.1r2).

Ok, did you ever published new bootdisks since your post ?

I'm in the middle of updating my debian mirror.  Mine is really out of date
(I need to download about 1GB of binary packages & sources !).
I will then try to build bootdisks & kernel next week if you want.

btw, is there a list of packages that will be updated in 2.1.r3 ?
