I am attempting to install Cisco Systems VPN Client 3.5.2 on my Redhat 9.1 system. I was a Slackware person, until, but thats a long story. At anyrate........
I install RH 3 days ago, and so far so good, until now. I have a tarball of the Cisco client, and I unpacked it, and managed to install it (not sure how). Now, however, I cannot run it. There is a file that is what I suspect is a service that mst be started before a connection can be made. However, when I attempt to run the command in the documentation, I get the following:
[root@Darkstar vpnclient]# ./vpnclient_init start
Starting @VPNBINDIR@/vpnclient: /lib/modules/2.4.20-8/CiscoVPN/cisco_ipsec: The
module you are trying to load (/lib/modules/2.4.20-8/CiscoVPN/cisco_ipsec) is compiled with a gcc
version 2 compiler, while the kernel you are running is compiled with
a gcc version 3 compiler. This is known to not work.
I did some Google snooping on this, and found that often, a simple insmod -f will load the mod, without issue. However, and this is the weird part, I can't insmod!!! It says "command not found" (Yes, I am root.......) It also returns this error for lsmod, modprobe, and rmmod. Am I doing something wrong? I never had this problem with Slack. The full install was performed, with the Kernel and server tools and all. Any thoughts? Thanks in advance.....
