patch-o-matic problem


Im having problems to apply p-o-m to the kernel source. Ive done the followings:

1. installed iptables 1.2.11 in /usr/local/src/iptables
2. unpacked patch-o-matic-20031219.tar.bz2 in /usr/local/src/iptables/patch-o-matic. In the README file says that after setting the KERNEL_DIR (which is /usr/src/linux) i have to run ./runme pending. Though the script is executed it doesnt apply any patch to the kernel, and it gives me this:

Quote:
Warning - no help text file could be found in either
/usr/src/linux/net/ipv4/netfilter/Config.help
or /usr/src/linux/Documentation/Configure.help
fgrep: /usr/src/linux/net/ipv4/netfilter/Config.in: No such file or directory
Could not find place to slot in Config.in line
Can you tell me where am i wrong?

PS I have Slackware 10.0 and 2.6.10 kernel
/usr/src/linux is a link to /usr/src/linux-2.6.10 where also is unpacked the 2.6.10 kernel source.

If you are in the patch-o-matic directory, just run ./runme pending or ./runme extra
It will ask for the kernel and iptables directories when it starts..

The latest version of pom is http://www.netfilter.org/files/patch...040621.tar.bz2
and iptables is http://www.netfilter.org/files/iptables-1.2.11.tar.bz2

If you use the distro kernel sources, you must have the current headers rpm installed as well.. and you can copy your current /boot/config--- as /usr/src/linux/.config to get a good starting point.

10x the problem was solved. I think that the problem occured because ive used a depricated pom.

The latest version of pom is http://www.netfilter.org/files/patc...0040621.tar.bz2

The above recipe really works )
