Hello and thanks for the quick response, this gives me hope,
The only thing is, I am still a newby. I tried to apply the fix to the
module but to be honest, I don't really know what I am doing. I tried to
compile the original module the 'Debian way' as described (downloading
the deb package with apt-get and then with module-assistent). But now I
suppose I have to work from source? I have found out I can download the
source-code of the original patch with 'apt-get source ppscsi-source'. I
put the source code in /tmp/ppscsi. But now I am totally lost. Here is
some output from what is is in /tmp/ppscsi:
Dion at Dell:/tmp/ppscsi$ ls
ppscsi-0.3 ppscsi_0.3.dsc ppscsi_0.3.tar.gz

Dion at Dell:/tmp/ppscsi/ppscsi-0.3$ cd upstream

I have no clue to which file to apply the patch now.
A friend of mine told me to use:
patch -sp1 < patchfile but what would be the patchfile?
I also downloaded the new patch in the /home/Dion/My Downloads dir (the
.bin file) and used bunzip2 to unpack it to
/home/Dion/My Downloads/linux-ppscsi-2.6.9.patch-0001.bin.out (bunzip2
said: no filename to name the unpacked file, so using .out)
That is where I am now. What are the next steps if I want to build the
patched patch as a module?
Thanks for any help!
