Re: kernel-source : end of tg3 NIC support (because of firmware) ?
Philip Miller a écrit :
using packaged kernels and using vanilla kernels are
not mutually exclusive. apt-get install kernel-package
Thanks. I've used kernel-package, but never with vanilla kernels.
I will try it, if tg3.c is removed from Debian kernel-source-2.4.x
The Debian team apparently does quite a lot of work on kernel sources.
For 2.4.26, a diff -r against vanilla kernel gives about 17,000 lines!
