My understanding is that you need to compile a new, modular kernel, to be
able to use a patched version of a certain ethernet card driver module. Ok.
But what exactly do you mean by "vanilla kernel source does not build on my
system"? Isn't there only one kernel source for any combination of
architecture and version number? You cannot compile kernels at all?

Please clarify.
