Comment 1 Tim Scofield 2004-12-17 14:10:21 EST
find /lib/modules/2.4.21-20.0.1.ELsmp/kernel -name"sk98lin*" does not
find any files. The module doesn't exist in the stock kernel

Compiling a new kernel using "make oldconfig" will generate the
modules, but it hangs while detecting new hardware during boot.
Comment 2 Ernie Petrides 2004-12-17 17:18:16 EST
It's in the associated "kernel unsupported" package.  If you are using
kernel-smp-2.4.21-20.0.1.EL.x86_64.rpm as your base kernel RPM, then
install kernel-smp-unsupported-2.4.21-20.0.1.EL.x86_64.rpm as well.

Since the sk98lin is unsupported, we have no idea if it will actually
work.  And naturally, if it doesn't, you'll have to resolve any problems
with it yourself.
