I get kernel source from kernel.org because I can get *patches*
instead of whole kernels... alsa, I'm still behind a 33.6/56K, so size
If there were patches between the various kernel source .debs, I'd
possibly use those... though patches from stock kernel to Debian
kernel would also be good.
PS: I've seen later Herbert's mail, and I wonder... what are the
patches between stock kernel and Deb kernel? I just checked with
apt-cache search kernel, but I can't find a package that looks like it
could have them... And no, I don't have a stock kernel-image.deb
installed here, so I don't know what it says.
