Comment 1 John Nilsson 2004-04-27 18:46:17 UTC
The problem is that the patches applied is not current/synced...?

The patches from device mapper 1.00.17 (at least) patches slab.h which is needed.

It would be easier to debug if the patch-package would contain a descrition of the patcehs.
Comment 2 John Nilsson 2004-04-27 18:57:03 UTC
I tried to reverse the 01_device_mapper patch and apply the patch (linux-2.4.26-rc1-devmapper-ioctl.patch) from the official distribution but some of the files are already patched/created by the 00_gs_sources patch and where rejected...
Comment 3 John Nilsson 2004-05-13 00:59:57 UTC
Just so that no one is waiting for me to dive durther into this. The only one who can fix this is the person responsible for the 00_gs_sources patch.
Comment 4 Ricardo Nuno 2004-05-19 10:32:06 UTC
i'm having the same problem here.
Comment 5 Scott Jones 2004-06-25 11:20:32 UTC
gs-sources-2.4.25_pre7-r6 was just released and this issue still remains.  Strange that it appears to be a newer dm patch since it supports dm-raid1.  Is there ANY work being done on this, or if we require lvm2, should we forget about gs-sources?

Why are there new unmasked releases when gs-sources is and has been broken?
Comment 6 Frederic Servant 2004-07-28 07:27:50 UTC
Same problem with freshly emerged 2.4.25_pre7-r8. Shouldn't it be marked unstable?

Comment 8 Daniel Drake (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2004-10-11 13:25:38 UTC
gs-sources is no longer in portage as its outdated and unmaintained. Please use gentoo-sources for 2.4 or gentoo-dev-sources for 2.6.
