Hi all,

I have (with help from Barry) found that 3.5 also have .deb packages 

Well, I delved in, and tried installing them on my laptop, to see if it 
would compile.

3 things come from my experience so far

1. The compilation detects my machine as debian, in-fact it is Ubuntu, 
so the testing in the configure needs to change such that it checks for 
lsb-release before the debian_version in /etc. But in the meantime "make 
LINUX_DISTRIBUTION=UBUNTU_LINUX Autoconfig" does the job, i.e after 
copying config/env.mcr.sample to config/env.mcr

2. At the moment with 3.5.0-1, the compilation does not succeed on 
11.10. Is there any documentation out there that shows which flavours of 
Ubuntu/Debian are in-fact supported. I will try it on an older karmic 
test machine that I have already, and see how far I get.

3. The documentations on 
http://publib.boulder.ibm.com/infocenter/clresctr/vxrx/index.jsp don't 
give any indication of Ubuntu/Debian support

any pointers from anyone would be great
