SubjectSV: Upgraded to 2.1.107 ... almost succesfully - Yet another foll owup.
Date
Yet another followup ...

MODULES:

Compiled and installed modutils-2.1.85. <linux/kerneld.h> missing ...
I remember from talk 'back in old days' on this particular list
(-kernel), that kerneld isn't needed as the support is in the kernel
now. So I didn't make the daemon ...

This is toooo easy. I must be doing something wrong ... ;o)

Best regards,

Brian
