Thumbs down IPX kernel modules missing SuSE 9.1 "professional"

Hi All,

In earlier days life was a lot simpler. When my memories bring me back to those happier days i can remember that SuSE 8.0 could act as a netware server, just modify nwserv.conf and presto IPX was enabled. Indeed those were days in wich life was carefree....
Later on with the purchase of SuSE 9.1 (and i hesitate to say) professional MARSNWE wil not start because installed kernel modules are not to be found by the kernel. By SuSE there is no information to be found in the support database regarding MARSNWE, IPX and NETWARE. Since the support desk haven't bothered themselves of gracing me with anything else then an automated reply, on any support question in this matter i put to them i am forced to believe that the kernel is not part of the SuSE operating system and as such it is byond the scope of basic installation support.

If anyone is out there who could tell me how to enable the netware emulation in SuSE 9.1 i would be most gratefull

ALL network specific set-up (and believe me, IPX
on Linux is definitely non-standard, even if network-
ing was part of the install-support) has been out of
the support ever since the early days of SuSE 6.

To enable ipx you'll need to re-compile the kernel
with the support enabled, it's that easy.

If you have the kernel-source installed all you need
to is to enable
in your kernels .config file for the re-compile.

Btw, newer versions of the Netware clients VERY
happily work with pure IP, I don't know whether
mars can server that, though. If it can just give IPX
a miss ;)


P.S.: I've moved this to the SuSE forum
