I am getting this message on console.
Where is the problem?
This is a kernel diagnostic message attempting to provide hints
to retrofit a stricter API on old BSD code. I just tried to
reproduce the message with the Raw Hide packages
and couldn't. The message comes and goes depending on the patches
applied to the kernel.
What kernel/ucd-snmp are you running? Does upgrading to the Raw
Hide packages fix your problem?
It looks to be fixed in rawhide-release-19990907-1.noarch.rpm
This problem still exist in rawhide-release-19991207-1.noarch.rpm
I'm closing this problem because it depends on the presence of the kernel
patch. We will fix ucd-snmp (and all other programs that trigger the message)
if that's the right thing to do. For now, the fix appears to be to turn off
the kernel message.
