Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 119306
appletalk protocol missing in WS/WS/AS 3
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:07:01 EST
Description of problem:
We need the AppleTalk kernel module for five HELIOS products on Linux.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Install from CDs
Steps to Reproduce:
1. insmod appletalk
cannot find AppleTalk kernel module
Should be included and loaded
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?
Augh. I am sorry for being an idiot. This module is in
The AppleTalk kernel module will not be included in the supported kernel
package, but is available in kernel-unsupported for RHEL 3.
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.
