Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 13822
RHL 6.2 does not load appletalk kernel module
Last modified: 2008-05-01 11:37:56 EDT
Tried to get netatalk (supplied with RHL 6.2 on workstation CD) to work
under RHL 6.2 clean install and finally noticed that it wasn't starting
the kernel appletalk module automatically like it did until 6.1 and
before. Installed all errata for 6.2 and problem did not go away.
Reinstalled same system under RHL 6.1 using same netatalk version and the
system loads the appletalk kernel module when atalk is started.
I have just been manually installing the kernel module appletalk via
insmod prior to doing a /etc/rc.d/init.d/atalk start
Ack! I realized this isn't a bug, just the fact that in 6.2 net-pf-5 is set to
off rather than appletalk as it was in 6.1.
