LX - 82 - IDE - Compiler version - kernel version and Ebtables -RE: [Fwd: Re: [conspire] MAC address filtering with 2.4.14 ????] -- Dev BoardLX
My objective is to use
Ebtables (http://ebtables.sf.net)-- which is only compatible with
Kernel version 2.4.22 / 2.4.23. And I have Developer board ETRAX 100
I have a Developer board LX ------ can use the Developer boad 82
software or Developer board IDE software.
If the above statement is true can you kindly let me know which
Developer board software --
will go together.
I have run both 2.4.23 and 2.4.24 on a devboard 82 (which
means that devboard_lx
should also work as expected). In the
2.4.25-pre series there is a patch which
CRIS up to date with 2.4.23.
One potential problem with 2.4.23 and 2.4.24 is that
the Out Of Memory handling
has been rewritten. In 2.4.25-pre there is a
option that enables the old style
OOM handler again.
Starting next week I will have more time to do some kernel
work again (mostly
2.6.x related of course). If there is a growing community of
people who wants
to contribute to CRIS kernel development I will certainly
set up a BK tree
(there already is one but it is not used).

Has anyone used 2.4.23 or 2.4.24 versions in place of 2.4.14 with
Dev board LX.

My apologies for not having more time to spend dealing with this matter,
but it occurs to me that a 2.4.14 kernel almost certainly suffers from
at least two severe security defects, i.e., those announced over the
last few months that lead to the release of 2.4.23 and 2.4.24. Unless
you have specific knowledge of security fixes having been backported to
your 2.4.14 kernel, I would strongly advise upgrading.
It may be that, then, you would also be able to use ebtables. ;->
