Finnix 89.2 Released

Finnix is a small, self-contained, bootable Linux CD distribution for system administrators, based on Debian testing. Today marks the release of version 89.2 for the x86/AMD64, PowerPC, and UML/Xen platforms.

Finnix 89.2 is a maintenance release. Base system has been dist-upgraded to Debian's testing 2007-07-26. A new kernel was planned for this release, but was not released due to problems between Finnix and available union filesystems. Because of this, 89.2 still comes with kernel 2.6.18, but has a few backported drivers.

  1. I'm modding / remastering finnix and would like to add latest madwifi. But the madwifi package needs the kernel headers. When I run apt-cache search linux-headers I see linux-headers-2.6.21-2 and finnix 89.2 is running 2.6.18-5.
    Do you have the linux headers for that finnix dist?

    When I try and make madwifi I get /lib/modules/2.6.18-5-x86-finnix/build: No such file and 'please set KERNELPATH'
    Any ideas?
