The patches are not allowed. Received error like following: "Can not connect 
to host".

I think the patches would be attached here directly.

P.S. Just my 2 cents.

Comment 2 Andreas Bierfert 2007-02-08 09:40:05 UTC
Will look into the issue and try the debian patches asap.

Comment 3 Kevin Fenzi 2007-02-08 16:13:39 UTC
In reply to comment #1: 

yeah, those links look dead. ;( 
Hopefully the patches can be fetched via the debian package?

Comment 4 Andreas Bierfert 2007-02-08 16:21:41 UTC
Thats not a problem... I am just waiting to get home to grep them and make a
test build +)
