of the operating system:  memory allocation, process allocation, device
input and output, etc.

Comment 1 Bill Nottingham 2001-01-04 22:21:27 UTC
What version of modutils do you have installed?

Comment 2 Bryce Nesbitt 2001-01-05 21:54:05 UTC
This was a stock RH7.0 install, before I had to upgrade the kernel:

[bryce@hardhat bryce]# rpm -q modutils

I eventually copied RedHat's .config file and compiled my own 2.2.18 kernel. 
Worked great.
