just wait a second; did you actually say "patches"? :) What is the
original platform/distro of NetCF?
It shouldn't matter if they've pushed changes or not as long as those
are public somewhere.
Anyway, I gave it # ./configure; go and found out 'augeas', whatever
that is, is "missing". And I expect more to come.
I can give it look over the weekend(no, I don't expect it to be done
over the weekend - look :]).
Slackware guest shouldn't be a problem. It's just like any other
GNU/Linux. Setup partition, run setup, key stroke, key stroke, Install
everything? [Yes], done :D j/k

Sounds great. I probably should note I'm more like # ./configure && make
&& ... && makepkg; and some hack-n-slash person.
It doesn't mean anything else than just making things clear(so much for
expectations) :)

Meant really like build options eg. must have netcf/iSCSI/... support.

No, I haven't. I pay very little attention to an IPv6, because of many
things and many excuses(it doesn't mean I wouldn't like to). So it's
likely - no.

fail ... what the hell is that? :) Rhetorical question, I can find out
by myself ;)

I know about these two already(I made post regarding dnsmasq some time
ago) :)

Have a nice day,
