Bonding on SUSE

Hello I was wondering if anybody may be able to help me. I am attempting to Install Bonding on a SUSE Linux box, Their SUSE is 8.X kernel version 2.4.19-64GB-SMP the bonding.txt file claims that kernels above 2.2.18 should be OK.

I am getting this error when I try to compile the driver.

cache-2:/var/tmp/BONDING/NEW # gcc -O2 -s -o ifenslave ifenslave.c
ifenslave.c: In function `main':
ifenslave.c:220: `BOND_RELEASE' undeclared (first use in this function)
ifenslave.c:220: (Each undeclared identifier is reported only once
ifenslave.c:220: for each function it appears in.)
ifenslave.c:417: `BOND_ENSLAVE' undeclared (first use in this function)

I am trying bonding version 20001101.c am I missing something? Any idea what the error is indicating or do I still need to compile a kernel before this will work? If so I assume I may have to add an entry to the makefile if so any Idea what that would be.

Any assistance would be appreciated.

I finally got the compile to work for the tools and looked like I was on my way but for what ever the reason the bonding module just wanted to hang my system or refused to load. I tried dozens of configurations and load orders etc all to no avail. I was working with the 8.0 Enterprise Edition and couldn’t seem to get SuSE bonding to work. The module for bonding is defaulted into the OS but the tools had to be compiled.

I think the best way to fix it is (And I hate to sound Microsofty) Upgrade, I went to Ver 8.2 (download (free) ver) and the tools and module were both apparently native and it seemed to work with out too much trouble.
