Not really, as the presence of config.gz

Is your server by any chance a container (OpenVZ or lxc)? In that case, you need to check /proc/config.gz
on the host.
Otherwise, see jefro's post. The modprobe
command will fail if run inside a container, but the ipx_interface
command should work. If it doesn't, it's fairly safe to assume that your system lacks IPX support.
