can you explain what is blocking you from using 2.6.33.4 or more recent?
My Ubuntu 11.04 machine runs 2.6.38.10.
Which distrib do you use?

hi 16pide,

I am using montavista kernel,and the patch for 2.6.33.4 has the difference in the files.I think as the kernel is 2.6.32.20 misses the upgradation from 2.6.32.20 to 2.6.33.4 so cannot apply the patches directly.

With regards,
Keerti
