you learn to compile a kernel correctly... check over the options you configured for tcp/ip again, there are plenty of options about socket filters in there, can't remember what they are from cold though.. Google is a sure bet to tell you which one you missed though.

Thanks!

Any ideas on this one?

Box wont boot after kernel upgrade "Dump Card State Ends" error with scsi card

Box wont boot after kernel upgrade
I get the error....
Dump Card State Ends
....
Giberish
.....
Yikes! There is a loop in the free list!

I recompiled the kernel with no module support. The same kernel boots ok with module support.

How can i get rid of that error with my no module kernel?
