Start here:

as a short followup, there's this:

which strongly suggests that i am wasting my time looking for that
vmlinux file.  i think i'll ask about this on the ubuntu kernel
mailing list, and annoy them for a while.


But as this kernel thingie has been going since June then write to Robert (but this may be difficult as he hasn't replied for 3 days to my e-mail to him  :-(.)

Nevertheless, search in the archives for this mail list for posts by Robert re his kernel 'course' he's put together.



If apathy is increasing where does it come from?
