Je viens de voir le .fr de ta propre adresse, donc je me permets de
faire dans le bilingue.

Finalement je pense bien upgrader au 2.4.22 et prendre le patch unique,
ca devrait m'éviter des déboires. Sauf que j'utilise aussi lirc, et si
j'en crois ce que j'ai lu, ca me promet aussi de ne pas être triste. ...

Alors avant de m'y jeter (et au passage devoir aussi reinstaller mes
drivers video nvidia et sons alsa, a chaque fois la grande joie, plus ce
que j'oublie) ... quelle galère je risque avec lirc ?

Now in english for the .com e-mail
I'll finally upgrade to 2.4.22 kernel, to use the provided patch.
But before doing that - as it is not that quick (recompiling nvidia
drivers, alsa drivers, and what more?) : i'm using also lirc... and it
seems that it requires also a patch. Will it be that complicated ?

thx anyway !
