[Linux-ia64] Re: sys_epoll patch for ia64-linux

Hello All,

Advance thanks for whoever wants to respond to my
problem. Fortunately, I figured out the problem myself
today!!!. Looks like the number, I have set for the
system calls are NOT acceptable by the ia64 kernel.

Changed the number from 1280 to 1230 which worked very
well for me [ofcourse, I had to recompile the kernel
anyway!!!].

Is there any pointers [or] mailing list answers for
those kind of issues ?

Thanks again for this list.

Regards,
GV
