its a broken make. I suggest trying the following before sending
this error over to cisco tech support.

1) upgrade your gcc compiler. make sure its the latest version.
2) you have the kernel source for the version you are using.

i think its the problem with the kernel source when building the module.
Maybe cisco didnt give you the correct versions.

It looks like I have the latest copy of make installed as far as I can tell:

# rpm -q make
make-3.79.1-18

I'm at a loss....

Thanks,

I had the exact same errors until I was able to download the newest
version for linux which is vpnclient-linux-4.0.4.B-k9.tar.gz

I built it on a 2.6 kernel and it runs great.

There was also an advisory, i think it was directly from cisco, when using 
the kernel 2.6, you need the 4.0.4B-k9 vpnclient. This should work in the 
most cases.

Help with Cisco VPN client 4.0.1 (and 4.0.3)
I recently upgraded my client from version 3.6.0 to version 4.0.1 (then tried 4.0.3). I'm running Windows 2000. I uninstalled the client, rebooted, installed the new one, rebooted and tried to connect. Both the profiles I had on the 3.6.0 version worked, I could VPN with both of them. Since I've installed 4.0.1, and then 4.0.3 I cannot access either profile any longer. Here is part of the log (if someone could help me I would greatly appreciate it, I have no idea what's causing this problem): -------------- Cisco Systems VPN Client Version 4.0.3 (C) Copyright (C) 1998-2003 Cisco ...

The routing on the remote comes up as: 10.0.0.0/8 gw 70.XXX.XXX.XXX when it should be 10.68.0.0/8 gw 216.XXX.XXX.XX1. I want to be able to use all the resources on the host network. Has anyone gotten OpenSwan to work? I can get some of it to work changing the routes manually. But I shouldn't have to do that. 3 days at it already .... I'm getting dizzy. Thanks in advance. walt750@gmail.com wrote: > I am trying to use 2 linux servers to bridge or route ip.

CISCO Linux vpn client
I am trying to connect to my work institutions VPN connection using the Cisco VPN client (v. 4.04-A-K9) using Linux, Xandros 3.0 (2.6.9 Linux kernel), But I have some problems that make it virtually unusable... Here's how far I have got: 1) compiled and installed correctly 2) can log in and authenticate (I know this because I get the authentication and encryption responses, also I can send email via the email server and this isn't visible to the outside world) However I seem to have potential issues with: 1) address resolution (the names and addresses of all the DNS servers are in ...

linux cisco vpn client
I just installed the cisco vpn client 4.7 for Linux on a Centos (redhat clone) system, it works fine and dandy. Howerver it takes forever to open a xterm session, GAIM, even the Mozilla browser. This only happens when I'm vpned into work, if I disconnect session, everything works fine.

Trouble installing Corel Linux 1.2 not loading LILO
Ladies and gentlemen I am a newbie with linux, but am old enough to have cut my teeth with DOS and therefore at least understand file structures. I thought I would try to install Linux on an old desktop and have ran into a problem. Using the Corel Linux 1.2 CD I created an install floppy since my hardware does not support booting off of the CD. The hardware consists of a 133 MHz pentium with 82 MB of ram, a 1.7 GB hard drive, a 800 MB hard drive an SMC network card, and a CD_ROM drive. I booted off of the floppy and it found the CD drive. It then let me partition the 1.7 GB hard drive into a Linux partition and a swap file. I used the defaults. (No other systems on this computer). The installation then loads about 400 MB of the OS onto the hard drive. After that it tells me to eject the floppy. When it tries to reboot it gets to the point where it prints "LI" and then a blinking cursor. I believe it is trying to run LILO Any ideas?

My Linux is not your Linux
To the denizens of comp.os.linux.advocacy! So many people demonstrate in this newsgroup that they know only a Linux of Hatred and Greed, of paranoia, and of a selfish sense of entitlement. They seem always to be behaving like monkeys in reaction to human dissenters, throwing feces at one another and beating their chests pretending to know something. My Linux is not that Linux. My Linux is the Linux of Love, of sharing, friendship, community. It is a uniquely human Linux and not one for monkeys. When I speak with fellow Linux users in real life (i.e. not in the monkeyhouse of COLA) they remind me of myself: practical, freedom-loving, anti-corporate. Here in COLA however they remind me of monkeys or spoiled brats or worse, corporate sysadmins. My Linux is not your Linux. It is the human Linux that acknowledges that Linux involves human work to create, that although it is free you are not entitled to it, that although it is created in large part by volunteers, they deserve to be paid for their gifts with at least gratitude. And that monkeys and self-entitled brats and sysadmins never thank anyone. yarmfelder@yahoo.com writes: > To the denizens of comp.os.linux.advocacy!

I have Linux! I have Linux!
Ok, after two days of trying to get Windos 1900 installed and working , I sat down an hour ago and installed Linux. In an hour. Smirk. Ok, I will be honest. I did have some problems, but I believe they were of my own ignorance. 0) I started with trying to install Suse. However, I couldn't get it to install. Why? Because I didn't read the menu. There is a startup menu and the first entry is boot to harddisk. I thought that was the thing to do so I did it about 4 times. Then I gave up. However, I went back to it and subsequently realized that I should have chosen the 2nd men...

GUIs for Cisco VPN client for Linux
Per a request from one of our users that just bought an Eee PC, I downloaded and installed the Cisco VPN client for Linux (4.8.01.0640 is the current version). Before doing the work on the Eee PC, I downloaded a trial of Xandros Desktop Pro 4.2, installed it on an older Pentium III Dell w/ 256MB RAM, installed the kernel source and GCC, and ran the installer. I already have a PCF file from the OS X and Win32 installers I've built and that worked perfectly. What I'm wondering now is, since this is a CLI only client, has anyone tried any of the various GUI add-ons, esp. on Xandro...

[LINUX] Info: Intel D845GEBV2 mainboard and Linux 2.4.21/2.4.22
I recently had to install Linux on a i845 based system (D845GEBV2 mainboard).

Installing Linux from within Linux?
Seriously. I've got a laptop that currently dual-boots Debian and Windows 2k. I'd like to replace the Debian installation with Slackware (I'm more used to the latter). Problem is, the laptop has no floppy drive, a questionable CDROM drive (it reads commercial CDs fine, but hates anything created in a home burner), and is too old to boot from the network or USB devices. So, what I'd *like* to do is boot Debian and kick off a Slackware installation (via NFS) from within that, which would then overwrite the Debian install itself. Can it actually be done? I'm suspecting not, as by the time Debian's booted to a prompt where I can set anything off from, the OS is all up and running and won't let something so horrible happen (unlike firing the install off from MSDOS say, where DOS will let things stomp all over memory if they want!) (My other options are taking the hard disk out of the laptop and sticking in another machine to do the install, or finding a floppy drive for the laptop... I doubt the latter's going to be easy though) cheers Jules Jules <julesrichardsonuk@remove.this.yahoo.co.uk> wrote: > I've got a laptop that currently dual-boots Debian and Windows 2k.

Linux Beginner, Which Linux to install?
I want to install linux, but i know nothing about it. IS there any good website for beginner? Which linux you guys recommended for beginner? Also, what is the minimum system requirement ? Thanks! marslee@hotmail.com wrote: > IS there any good website for beginner? > Which linux you guys recommended for beginner? > Also, what is the minimum system requirement ? Hi marslee, if you have got a fast&cheap inet connection, why not try gentoo? it sure is a bitch to install, but as soon as you get it up&running (give it a week or two) its cool. gentoo compiles itself on your machine, but forget the "optimized-system-gives-3%-performance-gain" aspect, i love it because it works smooth and is easy to maintain. e.g., software install or complete system update takes you exactly one command. each. documentation is very good, step-by step, and there are also wiki's and how-to's. if gentoo is not your thing, you can always resort to suse (fool-proof install; but updating means reinstall and gettings things like dvd play to work is a real pain in the y'know) or knoppix (save your /home and settings to a usb-stick; runs from live cd). HTH, florian (gentoo-noob) ah yeah, system requirement for a non-graphical linux is like *486 cpu and stuff, so if your box is newer than three years, it should do fine. <marslee@hotmail.com> wrote in message news:1119510779.706073.70580@f14g2000cwb.googlegroups...

No more console installation on Linux with j2sdk 1.4.2?
Hi group, I've just downloaded the most recent j2sdk (j2sdk-1_4_2-nb-3_5_1-bin-linux.bin) and was a little surprised that it seems to be only available with NetBeans (which I do not use) and that the installation fails with the message: The installer is unable to run in graphical mode. Try running the installer with the -console or -silent flag. In the installation instructions, it's said that "-console" and "-silent" are not actually supported (and indeed, it fails after the first screen) and that one has to make it work with X. But I do not use X on a server, so...

VPN-1 CheckPoint Linux client -- no longer supported?
All, According to these release notes... http://www.checkpoint.com/techsupport/downloads/html/securemote/sr-5-0/SecureClient_NG_build_53328.pdf of July 7, 2003 CheckPoint's VPN client software only works with Red Hat 7.2 and 7.3. The release notes specifically state Red Hat 8.0 and later is not supported. Please reply to this post if you can either confirm or deny this limitation is true. Is it true CheckPoint has stopped upgrading their Linux VPN client? Is there an open source alternative?

You won't be able to find a vpn client from Check Point that runs on a recent kernel. That's a pity indeed. I've not tried an opensource IPSEC client against a Check Point firewall but if it should work you'll probably run into problems when you're behind a NAT device. Br.

Installing Linux on a powerpc Mac: powermac powerbook G4 mandrake 9.1 vs. gentoo PPC 1.4 vs. yellow dog 3.0.1 (yellowdog)
Forget Mandrake 9.1 for powerpc: The installer is seriously buggy. It wouldn't read the A key on my G4 powerbook nor did it have support for my video card. It couldn't even read the disk on my powermac G4. There are numerous bugs in the software and problems with partitioning. Since it is what I had first, I tried to install it a score of times before my list of workarounds ended up in a dead end with no video card support on the powerbook. Gentoo is a thing of beauty. Unfortunately, it doesn't understand the most recent firmware on my G4 powermac and yaboot couldn't mount the root partition. My kernel wouldn't read the keyboard on my powerbook. Of course, it is possible that with some slightly different options, that would not have happened, but the answer wasn't obvious at all. With gentoo, everything is pretty much a matter of compiling from source. It is like a simply designed kit for a biplane with beautifully varnished wood and stainless steel cables all provided and all the instructions you need to build the engine. But it wouldn't work on either mac after carefully reading the documentation for every kernel build option. Yellow Dog Linux took Red Hat 9 from the hands of its exhausted developers and made it even nicer. It installed perfectly, first time, on both computers. After my problems with the other distributions of Linux, I was glad I bought Yellow Dog's installation support, and I received some useful pointers from one...
