    cloop support for kernel 2.6


    I would like to compile cloop for Linux-2.6. I made a test with cloop-1.02 for kernel 2.6.0-test5. There was many compilation errors: header files were missing. I used gcc-3.2 with a recent linux system.

    Is there a port of cloop for linux-2.6 ?

    Thanks advance.

    If you find out...let us all know

    I've been chasing this same thing for several days now. I managed to get a workable 2.6.0- kernel compiled; I can run it from a HD-based install. (This from a previous Knoppix HD install, with 2.6.0 kernel sources applied).

    The same compiler errors are present when I attempt to make cloop.o. I'm using the 2.0 version of cloop-src/utils but have tried it with previous versions as well.

    Looking at the entire picture, it seems that a number of changes have been made to blkdev.h in the 2.6.0 kernels...and that may be part of the problem.

    Those are hacks to the knopper cloop.
    He is using zlib that give you a good compression ratio and an average good speed, I use ucl and lzo to get better speed.
