Yes you're reading wrong, Rob, it's a 2.4.19 patch (to upgrade a 2.4.18
kernel), not 2.4.29. ;-)
Ali, from this message it looks like you're using a VERY old version of
the original patch-o-matic (not patch-o-matic-ng) that was intended for
older 2.4 kernels only and was replaced by patch-o-matic-ng. You should
use a more recent patch-o-matic-ng (pom-ng) which is intended for recent
2.4 kernels (above 2.4.18) and 2.6 kernels. As stated by the 2005-Jan-30
announce in the news section of the Netfilter website, there are now no
more pom-ng stable releases (I guess a patch is considered stable when
it's included in the kernel and removed from pom-ng) but only daily
snapshots available here :
Avoid the older pom-ng stable release versions in
http://ftp.netfilter.org/pub/patch-o-matic-ng/, they're broken.
And of course, apply only the patches you really need.
