Re: linux-source 2.6.12 in sarge?

Hi Andreas,

thank you very much for the tip. Following, as you suggested, the
instructions in the section 3.8 of the apt-howto I was able to install
linux-source-2.6.12 in may sarge system. The next step is to compile a
fresh custom kernel. Only a minor question: what version of
build-essential you suggest to install: the one in sarge (v 10.1) or the
one in etch (11.1)? is it really necessary?
