Unhappy ioctl: No such device *mist!*

Hey im trying some experiental ipv6 stuff, the modules are loading dmesg doesnt report any trouble, nor does the syslog.

So, here is the command im trying to exec :

/sbin/ip tunnel add eth0 mode sit ttl 64 remote 204_[ip...]
and i get : ioctl: No such device

Basicly im trying to tunnel tru a ipv6 server to get a sesy ip, (freenet6)

ive tryed export ioctl=eth0 and sit0=eth0 but nothing ;-(

When i run that command (sbin/ip) the syslog get a :

Apr 11 18:25:33 nerdzland modprobe: modprobe: Can't locate module sit0

Normal its eth0 i dont really know what and who its looking for a sit1 and i dont know where to defin it.

Any hints? please documents unless you really dont know

non-the-less if wish to, :smash: Thanks in advance

And thumbs up unspawn, but you need to contribut a little more
