freeswan 1.7 on Mandrake 2.2.16

freeswan 1.7 on Mandrake 2.2.16

Post by rejec.. » Fri, 01 Dec 2000 04:00:00

I download the latest freeswan 1.7 and installed it as per their
instructions, and compiled my kernel before I even attempted to install
freeswan, again as instructed.  Compiled perfectly.  I get this message
when I try to install freeswan 1.7  (tried snapshot from 11/28 too):

make oldgo
rm -f out.kpatch
make _patches2.2 BINDIR=/usr/local/lib/ipsec PUBDIR=/usr/local/sbin
PRIVDIR=/usr/local/lib/ipsec REALPRIVDIR=/usr/local/lib/ipsec

utils/patcher: patch on /usr/src/linux/Documentation/
utils/patcher: restoring original
utils/patcher: leaving patch attempt in
make[1]: *** [_patches2.2] Error 1
make: *** [patches] Error 2

Any help??  PLEASE HELP!

1. need help with kernel patching 2.2.16 -> 2.2.16-1


I am trying to get a clean 2.2.16-1 kernel source so I can do some LRP
development. I have downloaded the kernel-2.2.16-1.i386.srpm from
sourceforge and installed it. Inside of that I have untarred the 2.2.16
clean source. The problem I am having is that applying the patches produces
many errors. I have no idea about which order to apply them in and I think
this is the reason.

Can anyone tell me how to apply all the patches in the SRPM in the correct
order? Is there a shell script or something I am missing?
