More on installing Etch beta 2 on Sunfire V240

A couple of things I forgot to mention last night:

Also, I had to open the V240 and install a 3Com 3C905C-TX to get the
machine on the network - neither the onboard Broadcom nor the
Qfe/HappyMeal interfaces would work (the latter still send frames with a
MAC address which is offset from their actual burned-in address!)

I've now downloaded the Silo 1.4.11 sources and am trying to compile
them, but when I run 'make' I encounter the below problem.  Two of
Silo's dependencies come from the kernel sources, so I had to install
the 2.6.15 sources and copy include/linux/ext2_fs.h to the Silo source
tree's include/ext2fs subdir.

I suspect the kernel sources have changed substantially and that Silo
development hasn't kept pace for whatever reason.

Is anyone running Etch on Sparc and able to compile Silo 1.4.11?
