I can try it, where can I find this version?

Anyway, I've successfully built a deblobbed version of ubuntu's current
jaunty kernel, 2.6.28-11. It takes a lot of time to deblob, but by using
bash instead of dash it works well, so we can fix this later.
After messing a little with the abi changes, the deb is built, and it
runs like a charm in my Acer aspire one. This kernel will ship with the
forthcoming netbook edition of Trisquel (Trisquel Mini), based on xfce4.

Some issues though:

-This version of the kernel includes the snd-pcsp sound driver (pc
speaker) which you have to blacklist or it becomes the main soundcard.
-The changes the debblob process applies to the abi requires this:

cat << EOF > debian/abi/perm-blacklist

-From intrepid onwards there is no linux-ubuntu-modules anymore, so
ubuntu is now including some extra pieces inside the kernel package.
You can find the complete build results at:
and the list of files added by ubuntu at:
I need some help to figure out if any of this files is non-free.

Thank you,

PS: Please note that both the build and the devel server itself can
contain non-free stuff, use them with care!
