First, use gunzip to extract it. This will leave a file ucp-0.01.diff. Next, su to root and cd to /usr/src/sys. To apply the patch, do 'patch </location/of/ucp-0.01.diff' Note that the patch doesn't apply cleanly (/usr/src/sys/dev/usb/usbdevs) on 7.0-BETA2. If that's also the case on the version you're using, you'll have to look at /usr/src/sys/dev/usb/usbdevs.orig and /usr/src/sys/dev/usb/usbdevs.rej to fix it manually. Next, build and install a kernel according to the handbook. ('make kernel' in /usr/src) > (2) Assuming I can get it to compile, which I've never done, what do I > do with the object/driver file? The 'make kernel' command will install the module automagically. On the next boot, you should be able to load the ucp driver module with kldload(8). > This driver is long overdue, the part has been in usb devices for > several years, and support is in OpenBSD and Linux already (so I'm > told by google).
