- After a fresh install, kernel sources are required so go ahead and apt-get install linux-source-2.6.X
- Create the /usr/src/linux symlink
- Create the /lib/modules/`uname -r`/build symlink to /usr/src/linux-source-2.6.X
- Get the latest nistnet for2.6 kernels tarball from their website (currently it is [b]nistnet.2.0.12c.tar.gz)
[/b]- Unpack it, run ./configure, then apply the patch I attached to this file (can be found at the projects page)
- Continue with make and make install, then you can depmod -a to update all modules and that’s it.
- Create the required device nodes:
mknod /dev/hitbox c 62 0 mknod /dev/nistnet c 62 1 chown root /dev/hitbox chown root /dev/nistnet mknod /dev/mungebox c 63 0 chown root /dev/mungebox mknod /dev/spybox c 64 0 chown root /dev/spybox
