The one in linux-2.4.18/Documentation/Changes differs in the requirement of gcc-2.95.3, e2fsprogs-1.25, and modutils-2.4.2 (I am only mentioning those packages which are meant to be a part of Owl at all). All but the modutils are satisfied by Owl-current. The version of modutils we do have currently (2.3.21) seems to just work with 2.4.18 for me, though. > for modutils, i have just taken the SRPMS from redhat 7.2/7.3 and rebuild it. i > also build a 2.4.18, but haven't time to reboot with it ;-) -- /sd
