Cisco VPN Client unable to insert kernel module


Hey Everyone,

I am tryint to install A cisco vpn client and it seem to compile right and everything but my when I start it I get this.


Code:
* You must run "/etc/init.d/vpnclient_init start" before using the client.
* This script will be run AUTOMATICALLY every time you reboot your computer.
[root@fedora vpnclient]# /etc/init.d/vpnclient_init start
Starting /usr/local/bin/vpnclient: insmod: error inserting '/lib/modules/2.6.10-1.770_FC3smp/Ci scoVPN/cisco_ipsec.ko': -1 Invalid module format
Failed (insmod)
I am running FC3 SMP I installed the kernel src prior to compiling the client.

Any Ideas would be greatly appreciated.

Chris

Hey,

I had the similar problem but got it fixed. You need to change the order in which the services start at boot up.
The vpn service should start before the network service. I changed it in /etc/rc5.d and it works !!

All the best !!

cheers,
Anand.

I thought you couldn't run Cisco VPN on a SMP kernel??? Am i wrong cause cisco says smp is not supported.
