NOTE: The patch will not work for Jaunty, etc., unless some files are
added to the web server setup that the Builder docs describe. In
particular, you need to have a "linux-libre" directory in your web root
directory that contains the relevant files from the linux-libre
project. E.g., the user should be able to access
Since builder will have to re-run the time-consuming deblob-main several
times, I recommend running deblob-main manually, so as to generate a
bzipped tarball. Then uncompress, recompress with gzip, and install it
so that it can be accessed as:
(Perhaps there are already such compressed tarballs that you can just
download, convert to a .gz, serve up with your web server, and have it
all work out OK.)
Finally, specify that URL in config.local like this:
