Description Helmut Tschemernjak 2004-03-29 05:17:03 EST
Description of problem:
We need the AppleTalk kernel module for five HELIOS products on Linux.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
WS/ES 3(update1)

How reproducible:
Install from CDs

Steps to Reproduce:
1. insmod appletalk
Actual results:
cannot find AppleTalk kernel module

Expected results:
Should be included and loaded

Additional info:
We require appletalk for our products, if there are any maintanance problems we can do 
the support for it. The disadvantage is that our product will not run after a default RedHat 
install. Many of our customer and dealer are not capable to compile a custom kernel.

Still is missing in 2.4.21-15 , is it never coming back?
Comment 4 daryl herzmann 2004-06-04 14:42:01 EDT
Augh.  I am sorry for being an idiot.  This module is in 
kernel-unsupported.  Errrrr
Comment 5 dff 2004-10-29 17:50:46 EDT
The AppleTalk kernel module will not be included in the supported kernel
package, but is available in kernel-unsupported for RHEL 3.
Comment 6 Helmut Tschemernjak 2004-10-31 08:02:50 EST
Hello Donald,

why is it not included?, we need it for five commercial applications being installed at many 
sites. I personaly fixed some issues in the AMD-64 kernel 2.6 appletalk protocol and I am 
happy to provide support for this kernel module on RedHat.

Installing an unsupported package has a bad taste for customers. The appletalk protocol 
module will not hurt because it will only be loaded if required.

BTW: it is included in all SUSE releases by default.
