Hi

I need to add XFS support to Red Hat 9's 2.4.20-8. (see below for why this 
version only)

The patches on SGI's site don't go back to 2.4.20, I have some old patches that 
I used on (original, not RedHat) kernel 2.4.20 but these fail to 
patch on RedHat's source.

Searching this list I see this has been covered and solved by:
ftp://oss.sgi.com/projects/xfs/download/Release-1.2/installer/forRH-9.0-SGI-XFS-1.2.0-v1.iso
and:
ftp://ftp.uninett.no/pub/linux/RH-XFS-DVD
but neither of these files are available there now.

I have found a patched up rpm for 2.4.20-20.9 but this is no good, I need 
2.4.20-8.

Any pointers to rpms/patches/kernel sources would be most helpful, thanks.



Why do I need 2.4.20-8? I have a Highpoint SATA card, they only have 
closed-source drivers for this card and they only provide modules for a few RH9 
(and debian I think) releases, the latest of which is 2.4.20-8. The module 
fails with unresolved SCSI symbols for every variation of the official 
kernel 2.4.20 I've tried (even without XFS patched in), and with the 
2.4.20-20.9 XFS RPMs I found.
If there's a workaround here I would take that option too...


Thanks
Neil
