Cisco VPN Client 4.8 crashes smp kernel
I am running linux 126.96.36.199.0.0.1ELsmp kernel on an AMDx2 processor.
This is actually enterpise linux distributed by oracle.
I let the install choose which kernel, and I assume it chose smp since the amd proessor is x2 (there is only processor - but it is dual core)
I now installed cisco vpn client 4.8.00.490,
from the file vpnclient-linux-x86_64-4.8.00.0490-k9.tar.gz.
This is supposed to support the BIARCH architecture, and the 32bit systems (which is what I have running).
When I run the vpnclient, it connects, but then crashes the machine.
I have looked around and I have read that the VPN client does not support the smp kernel.
Has anyone here successfully run the cisco vpn client against the smp kernel?
Do I need the smp kernel? I could run the regular (EL) kernel, but when I tried, the kernel would not load - I would probably need to spend time cnfiguring it, etc, which I would prefer not to do.
Any help or advice is appreciated!
