Packages to run kernel 2.4.x on potato (version 1)
[please excuse that my English isn't perfect - I'm not a native speaker]
I have prepared the packages needed to run kernels up to 2.4.1 on a
potato system. Please read the whole mail before you install these
Please consider the following before you install these packages:
- These are packages taken from unstable recompiled on potato.
You can't expect that they are as stable as the packages in potato
and although I'll try my best I can't garuantee anything.
- When you upgrade modutils you can no longer run a modular
- Some packages you'll perhaps need aren't yet included because some
bugs need to be fixed before I'll include them:
If you still want to install these package you can do so by adding
deb http://people.debian.org/~bunk/debian potato main
deb-src http://people.debian.org/~bunk/debian potato main
to your /etc/apt/sources.list or you can download them directly from
Please tell me when you find a problem with these packages or if other
packages are needed. Don't report bugs in these packages to the Debian
bug tracking system!
Versioning of these packages
When I had to recompile a packageI have decreased the last digit of the
package version by one and added a ".bunk", e.g.
3.x.0a-2 -> 3.x.0a-1.bunk
to mark that these packages aren't the official ones but packages I've
recompiled. When you'll some time upgrade your distribution to woody
you'll get the official package installed instead.
The exception from this rule is ipmasq where I didn't decrease the last
digit before adding the ".bunk" because this is the official package
plus an important patch.
Currently, only i386 is supported. I had one request for powerpc packages
and I'm willing to add this and other architectures. But higher priority
items are for me:
- Fixing problems that occur.
- Add the packages I mentioned in "Warnings" as still missing.
- Some other both Debian (my packages, sponsoring people, QA) and
non-Debian (studies, finding a new job,...) items.
ipmasq 3.5.5 (+ patch from #85781)
pcmcia-cs 3.1.24-2 (without pcmcia-modules)
* Initial release.
