I got a version by downloading the whole of the glibc tar  file from the
gnu arvhive mirror site, which is available at mist sunsite mirrors. I got mine from

The then did a make in the doc subdirectory to make the manual. It is dated
24th October 1994. fot version 1.09 beta. The manual is over 650 pages long, so
I have the dvi file on my machine to refer to online, the chapters I have used
extensively I have printed out 4up together with the indexes and contents pages.

1. Q: How do I get from the latest stable kernel version to the latest prepatch version ?

It just struck me odd that the latest is 2.4.2 while the prepatches were
2.4.3 so I figured there must be something I missed in between (my logic
told me that a 2.4.3 patch would be against a 2.4.3 something ;-).

BTW, I haven't seen any announcements from Linus in this mailing list
regarding new versions, just the updates on the web site and Alan's release
notes saying he's merging with 2.4.3xx. Are those announcements being posted
somewhere else now ?
