The iBCS2 module is available from ftp://tsx-11.mit.edu/pub/linux/BETA/ibcs2. If you are running kernel version 1.2.13, get ibcs-1.2-950721.tar.gz, unpac it and apply the patches ibcs-1.2-950808.patch1 and ibcs-1.2-950828.patch2. You can then type « make » and install the iBCS modlue with « insmod« .

                        if ((ibcs_trace & TRACE_API) || ibcs_func_p->trace)

Then, copy CONFIG.i386 to CONFIG, and type make.

If you don’t have them already, create the needed device files by executing

# cd /dev
# ln -s null XOR
# ln -s null X0R
# mknod socksys c 30 0
# mknod spx c 30 1
