Oh, ... thought so.

You need to get the linux-m68k diffs (from sunsite.auc.dk/pub/os/linux/680x0
for example). Then you need to apply the apus diffs (linux-m68-... from
sunsite.auc.dk/pub/os/linux/apus) and then you can compile the stuff.

All this info is one :

alternatively, you can also apply the pm2fb patch and bppc_scsi_detect
patches as i do for debian. the pm2fb patch is on the pm2fb web page, and is
just a tarball of the atcual files, and the bppc_scsi patch is on the sunsite
ftp site. (together with a new bootstrap program needed to boot the new

I am also the linux-apus 2.2.x kenrel maintainer, so if you have any problems,
please contact me. I will try to make a new official 2.2.10 kernel release
nextly, maybe this week end, so you will not need to get all the patches, just
the m68k and apus ones.

Alternatively, you could try to port the m68k patches to a newer stable
kernel, and thus run your 2.2.15 kernel on apus also. If you do so, both Jes
sorensen (the m68k kernel maintainer ), doing 2.3.x only this days) and me and
Jesper Skov will be delighted indeed. If you have time, that is, since the
m68k patches are quite big. I would do it, but i don't trully have the time
for it.

And good luck for you
