Re: [linux-tr] Compiling w/o recompiling the kernel. *newbie* -Reply -Reply
Sorry, I haven't had a chance to get back into Linux yet (been busy and don't
have it entirely set up yet), but thank you for the help. Now I just need more
free time! Argh....

You don't have this file on your system, doh !!!. If you remove the .mik
extension at the top of the diff file (it's on both) the patch will work. (I'm
suprised nobody caught this earlier.)
I also managed to not include the changes required to Space.c to enable the
driver to be compiled directly into the kernel. (Well, you can compile it, but
it won't automatically get invoked.)
See: this is what I get for continuously patching my kernel and not performing
reality checks every now and then.
Oh well, I did say it was an alpha release.
