Hello Andreas,

Can you please guide me in patching ubuntu 10.04 kernel with lustre 
patches, as i am trying to build lustre on ubuntu 10.04 server. Did you 
compile the source by applying the required patches?? Please help me in 
building it as it is very crucial for me.

Thank you,

Sandeep Reddy G
