    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.
