Hi folks,

A couple of interfaces and header files changed in kernel version
2.6.31, so our patches are out of date. Attached is a new version of
the patch that should apply cleanly on vanilla 2.6.31.6. I'll update
the quickstart guide and the repository as soon as I have sorted out
some access control issues with our kind host (I seem to have lost the
ability to commit) :)

Cheers,
Anant

Hello,

I took a quick moment and tried to modify my experimental
sys-kernel/glendix-sources ebuilds to accommodate. What I was playing with
before was to base my ebuilds off of the hardened-sources, not the
vanilla-sources. Unfortunately, the hardened-sources versioning is still at
2.6.29*... But this brings me to the real question -- should I set up the
ebuilds relitive to vanilla- or hardened-sources?

Thanks,

EBo --

Well, that depends on how much effort you are willing to put in :-)

Vanilla sources would probably the easiest, since all you have to do
is to apply the Glendix patches directly. With hardened sources, it is
not so predictable; as you point out the versions are usually quite
behind and the patch may conflict with other patches.

I'd recommend basing off vanilla sources.

Cheers,
Anant

Maybe I should set up two separate versions. That way we can have the
up-to-date, and too the hardened ones...

The heart of my question was what people prefer. Maybe going with both so we
can experiment, then we can decide later. I forget at the moment why I went
with the hardened-sources -- I think it had to do with some of the security
issues. I'm sure that it will come back to me when I slow down a little.

once I dig myself out of my current work load I plan to jump into the middle
of Glendix at least as long as I can figure out if I want to base a bunch of
my thesis work on it; even if I do not I should have a thing or two to contribute.

BTW, at one point I was about 1/4 of the way through becoming an official
gentoo developer. Is there anyone on the Glendix project which can
mentor/evaluate my applications?
