it was with the drivers/char/ Thew problem was a missing ] in
an if statement, unfortunately, I do not remember which line ... :-( Next
time, I'll take notes. Unless I send the file to you so you could do
a diff.

I had the same problem with fasdron.tar.gz (or tgz...), At that
time, I had tried both RH6.0 on a Pentium and R5 on a PowerMac
(but I guess the tools are from the same sources anyway). This time
it was on the PowerMac. But, anyway, I avoided the problem by
having drivers/Makfile not to compile the drivers/sound directory
if CONFIG_SOUND is not set. I added an ifdef statement.

if I understand well, right after your local source tree, CVS is the most
up to date. I never used it and I am not behind a firewall, where are the
instructions on how to use it, i.e. do you have an URL?
