Problem with kdb-v4.4-2.6.9
|[Date Prev][Date Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next][Date Index][Thread Index]|
Hi, Dean, Thanks for your quick response. The two patches I applied on my 2.6.9 i386 kernel are: 1. kdb-v4.4-2.6.9-common-2 2. kdb-v4.4-2.6.9-i386-1 Are these two patches the most updated one for 2.6.9 i386 kernel ? or there are other patches that I need to apply ?
