I've a wicked problem and would like to know how I should proceed.
So far we use the standard 2.6.26 based fai-install kernel coming with lenny,
the systems afterwards are running Greg's 2.6.27.y kernel. Our latest systems
feature an Intel ...75L NIC which was only introduced into 2.6.28. We managed
to trim down the patch for 2.6.27.y and then I naively wanted to use this one
as or new fai-install kernel but of course failed miserably as I forgot to add
Now the big question:
What would you suggest to go ahead?
* I've tried patching aufs into 2.6.27 but failed so far (trying to use the
aufs-source patches from lenny) - I have so far failed to get aufs1 patches to
2.6.27 from sourceforge
* Applying the lenny aufs pathces to the lenny kernel also fail (or maybe I'm
doing something wrong here).
