Forgive my newbie questions.
So, I have two options for AoE support, right?
Compile the aoe module, or use a very recent kernel with AoE built in.
When I attempt to use the aoe module I complied I get a invalid
module format error, which I understand is because my kernel
and the module don't match. Since I'm using a 'canned' precompiled
Debian kernel 2.6.8-2-686, I not really sure how it was compiled.
Specifying a machine type of 686 while compiling aoe didn't do it.
So what easiest?
1)Somehow find out the correct compile options that I need to compile
aoe with my current kernel,
2)Recompile my current kernel with known options (which may not be
obvious to me since the actual compiler options are buried behind
the configuration tools),
3) pull a precompiled 2.6.11 kernel out of debian unstable.
The last option all well and good for testing on my Debian desktop,
where system reliability doesn't matter very much. Upgrading the
kernel on my Suse based Novell OES server really isn't an option, but
I have the same issue there.
Thanks for any advice.
