Re: Compile options for standard debian kernel?

Thanks. I actually have 2.4.18-bf24 currently, and UDF isn't mentioned
at all in the config file. I thought it was included in the sources for
2.4.18, but that may be wrong. In any case the module does not appear on
my system and modconf does not list it, so I need a recompile or update
to 2.4.19.
