I wished to bring to ur attention the following
problems I experienced while trying to install the new

I downloaded the entire source for 2.6 and then
applied the patch 2.6.0-test1-ac1

Initially I just tried with my old config file from
kernel 2.4.20 and accepting all the defaults. The
problem faced was in the file riscom8.c and the output

  CC [M] drivers/char/riscom8.o
In file included from drivers/char/riscom8.c:51:
drivers/char/riscom8.h:84: field `tqueue' has
incomplete type
drivers/char/riscom8.h:85: field `tqueue_hangup' has
incomplete type
drivers/char/riscom8.c:84: warning: type defaults to
`int' in declaration of `DECLARE_TASK_QUEUE'
drivers/char/riscom8.c:84: warning: parameter names
(without types) in function
drivers/char/riscom8.c:135: confused by earlier
errors, bailing out
make[2]: *** [drivers/char/riscom8.o] Error 1
make[1]: *** [drivers/char] Error 2
make: *** [drivers] Error 2


After changing the config file the following was
encountered. In the file drivers/net/defxx.c in line
202 the line

#error Please convert me to

needed to be commented out

The last error encountered was in the file
