Download area cleanup.

Some cleanups have been made in order to use the Savannah file release common system. It's now easier to select the right file to download,
and to get historical sdpl versions. I also added sdpl releases from 0.1 to 0.5, which were done before the project migrate to Savannah.
These are here for curious people and museums :=), but not to be used !

Compilation problems.
     posted by j_mayer, Fri 11 Jan 2002 09:00:18 PM UTC - 0 replies

Some should have had problems qhile trying to compile the sdpl modules against a kernel version < 2.4.10. Some structure have changed beetween 2.4.9 and 2.4.10 kernels, and I didn't noticed it. I promise (yes, really !!!) that this will be fixed in the next release. The next release is planned during the week-end.
