RedHat WS3 2.4.21-4 kernel and ACPI

RedHat WS3 2.4.21-4 kernel and ACPI

Post by Joe Blo » Sat, 10 Jul 2004 11:50:09

I'm attempting to install WS 3 on a laptop, HP nc8000, and need the ACPI
support. However, the stock install of WS 3 appears to have the ACPI
code broken. I can't load the patches from either as the
code branch seems to be different than the patch assumes.

I'm stuck. Anyone get the ACPI stuff compiled for this kernel?

1. kgdb for 2.4.21-4.EL kernel

2. kernel-module version mismatch 2.4.21-4.ELsmp

I am getting the below warning while installing one of my products.
Can anyone tell me, is there any extra flags required to build
ess.2.4.21-4.ELsmp. Any ideas, why am i getting this and how can
correct this ??

[root@gromit ess_mnt]# ./ess_install
