Subject[ANNOUNCE] WOLK v2.0 for Kernel v2.6.4
Hash: SHA1

Hi all,

2nd WOLK version for 2.6. Apply ontop of a vanilla 2.6.4 from

Tell me what you think, how it works, what I've missed, what should go in bla
bla you know what I mean ;)

Have fun :)

- ---------
I haven't merged grsecurity v2 nor Win4Lin into mainstream WOLK for 2.6.
Currently, I won't break users of 4g/4g, 4k stacks nor uml-skas3, currently a
no-go with grsecurity. Win4Lin is Desktop Usage, so if you want that, apply
it manually. Both patches are located in the patch itself in
the ./ADDON-patches directory after applying the main patch. Apply as usual.
