Hello there,

Please dont double post - its a bit of a pain and against the forum rules. What I suggest you do is use the newly speeded up search engine on this forum as well as google and see what you get.

http://www.linuxquestions.org/questi...04/01/4/110970 should be a start for you. Looks like you need to recompile.
