Hello Linux Community....

I've just got the 1.3.9 patch and tried to compile it..

I'm using the old hd controller ('cos I don't need to give the noprobe
option to my sencond hard disk - an WD31000 something or other)

[ I'm not at my PC right now, but at work ]

I got a link error:

gethd.o (.text+0x2ee): undefined reference to 'ide_xlate_1024'
gethd.o (.text+0x32c): undefined reference to 'ide_xlate_1024'

This symbol seems to be defined in ide.c (which is not included if you
don't include the new driver)

1) What advantages are there to the new driver (unless you want IDE-CRDOM
support) ?

2) Is this going to be fixed for 1.3.10 ?

PS. I've had no problems so far with the 1.3.x kernels, but not that I've
got any sophisticated hardware (486dx2 66Mhz, promise IDE disk controller (2Mb)
16Mb ram, Spea Mirage V7 VESA video controller)... I've been using the same
kernel setup for about 1 year now.

PPS. I get a warning while compiling ppp.c

something like unsigned long parameter expected in a printf (whereas it gets
a __u32 which seems to be an unsigned long int)

PPPS. Is this mailing list still active... I've haven't received a kernel
digest mailing list all this week.
