I'm trying to get SYSV IPC working on my 0.99.8 kernel. The diffs installed
nicely for the most part, and I added the ones that didn't by hand. The kernel
compiled without complaint. However, whenever I run a program that uses IPC,
I get a `Function not implemented.' error. I'm at a loss. Does anyone have any
suggestions?

Many thanks!

For ipcdelta.tar.z

1) The patch in fsync.cd is needed only with linux-0.99.7. 
   Back it out with patch -R if you applied it.

2) The diffs in ipc.cd fail in kernel/sys.c
   The patch is trying to delete the stub for sys_ipc()
   present in this file. So edit kernel/sys.c and remove
   the lines

   int sys_ipc (void) 
   {
	return -ENOSYS;
   }

Mail me if you have problems.
