Error in building l4linux-2.6-env

Hi Adam,

I did not intentionally checkout dde. It just came with l4linux-2.6-env. I think it was part of the module. If it is not required to build l4linux-2.6 maybe you would want to separate it from the module?

By the way, how can I receive CVS commit notifications via email, or is it even possible?

I am looking forward to you publishing the fix soon.

This is actually correct as dde_linux is for Linux2.4. The compiler
error appears with more recent compiler versions, and I have now finally
fixed it internally. Should be in our public CVS by tomorrow.

On the other side, how did it come that you checked out dde? You don't
need it to get L4Linux going.
