Redhat 7.3 uses kernel 2.4.18-3 .
I tryed to patch the kernel with : linux-2.4.18-VFS-lock.patch (located in
In the README it is mentioned that kernels supplied with RedHat , Mandrake
etc are a little different from the kernels
supplied bij kernel.org .
Since the lvm-1.0.5-2.4.18-3custom.patch worked fine with the "RedHat "
kernel i thought the VFS-lock patch also should work.
What do you advise me to do ?
