Hey guys, We were asked to do some Ubuntu testing against an upstream 3.7 kernel, and it turns out the 8.4.2 included with a vanilla 3.7 kernel does not come anywhere near the code for 8.4.2 available for download. APIs have changed everywhere. I'm not sure what the most recent kernel the linbit stuff will compile against, but 3.7 definitely kills it. With all of the applied patches different between the 8.4.2 being distributed, and 8.4.2 in the kernel, I'm not sure how they are supposed to be the same thing version. There could be different bugs between them simply because they use different kernel API calls. Just a warning to anyone wanting to use 8.4.2 as a plug-in where it's not already included. Of course, this wouldn't be a problem if Ubuntu didn't insist on forcing 8.3.11 into every release they produce. -- Shaun Thomas OptionsHouse | 141 W.
