Wanware Linux 1.6.1 - IP over X.25/Frame Relay Patch

Download Patch


IP over X.25 and IP over Frame Relay not supported in Wanware Linux 1.6.1 for RedHat 7.1, 7.2 and 8.0 using updated kernels 2.4.18-24 or greater.


Unzip the ippatch.tar.gz archive to a temporary directory:

tar xvzf ippatch.tar.gz

The patch consists of three files:


  1. Install lisip2x.patch
    1. Make sure the LiS source package is installed:

      rpm -qa | grep LiS

      If "LiS-source-2.15.2-tsg1.7.x" is not returned, then install the LiS source from the Wanware Linux 1.6.1 CD-ROM:

      mount /dev/cdrom

      rpm -i /mnt/cdrom/LiS/source/LiS-source-2.15.2-tsg1.7.x.i386.rpm

    2. Make sure kernel-source package is installed:

      For Red Hat 8.0:

      rpm -qa | grep kernel-source

      should return: "kernel-source-2.4.18-24.8.0"

      For Red Hat 7.1 and 7.2:

      rpm -qa | grep kernel-source

      should return: "kernel-source-2.4.18-24.7.x"

      If kernel-source is not installed, and you are using the 2.4.18-24 kernel on Red Hat 7.1, 7.2, or 8.0, you can install the kernel source code from the Wanware Linux CD-ROM as follows:

      mount /dev/cdrom

      rpm -i /mnt/cdrom/RPMS/kernel-source-2.4.18-24.8.0.i386.rpm

    3. Install the patch:

      cd /usr/src/LiS-2.15

      patch -p1 / /lisip2x.patch

    4. Remove the /usr/src/LiS-2.15/pkg/ip2x directory if it exists:

      rm -f -r /usr/src/LiS-2.15/pkg/ip2x

    5. Make the streams source:

      cd /usr/src/LiS-2.15

      make realclean

      make configure) (take the defaults, when prompted


      make install

  2. Replace existing wanware_modules file with wanware_modules in patch:

    mv / /wanware_modules /sbin

  3. Install new wwconfig utility files:

    cd /usr/lib/tsg/wwconfig

    tar xv / /wwconfig.tar

  4. Reboot the machine.

  5. You can now use wwconfig to configure your IP over X.25 or IP over Frame Relay links.

Note: This patch was tested on kernel update 2.4.18-24 for Red Hat 7.1, 7.2, and 8.0 available from Red Hat (http://updates.Red Since differences in kernel versions may affect operation of Wanware Linux 1.6.1, we cannot guarantee operability of this patch for kernels other than 2.4.18-24.
