Hello,


i am currently having problems to install the VPN client (4.8.01.640) on a linux box (fedora 8- Kernel 2.6.25). On a linux forum found some guy saying that the VPN client won't install correctly on any kernel above 2.4.xx. Does anyone experienced a similar issue? Is there a workaround?


Thanks in advance

1. For users running the kernels from fedora, they *must* install the corresponding kernel-sources rpm.( SMP installation)

2. For people running their own kernel, they must use the build tree from their running kernel to build the client. Unpacking the source code for the version of the kernel they are running is insufficient.
