Description Clark Williams 2009-09-10 14:41:58 UTC
Description of problem:

The realtime kernel does not have a need to support the IPX protocol stack. Turn off CONFIG_IPX in all RT kernel variants

Comment 1 Luis Claudio R. Goncalves 2009-09-11 02:52:55 UTC
Done for kernel V1 (-134)

Comment 2 Luis Claudio R. Goncalves 2009-09-30 18:51:13 UTC
there is a different BZ for kernel v2 that has a bigger list of protocols and features to disable.

Comment 3 David Sommerseth 2009-10-27 15:38:37 UTC
Verified against kernel-rt-

* Checking config
# grep "IPX" config-*
config-generic:# CONFIG_IPX is not set
config-generic:# CONFIG_IPX_INTERN is not set

* Trying to load ipx module
# modprobe ipx
FATAL: Module ipx not found.
