Hi William.

So what I posted isn't a patch. It is a binary build of the linux
kernel with Max's patch applied. You can install it simply by
downloading it and doing:

dpkg -i linux-image-2.6.26murat-custom_murat001_sparc.deb

If you want to use my build that's all you have to do, besides reboot.

To build your own kernel.. is a bit complicated to go over in email. I
recommend installing kernel-package and reading the documentation in
/usr/share/doc/kernel-package/. Some of that is a bit outdated (the
stuff about mod utils in the woody howto doesn't apply anymore), but
it's a pretty comprehensive overview of how to build a kernel using

Feel free to do whatever you want with that deb file.
