This is the error I receive after compiling and install the Cisco VPN client. I had the same problem on CRUX linux. Never had an issue on Debian or RH. ANy ideas?
i assume this vpn was installed from a precompiled binary?
the error message tells all. they compiled their vpn with gcc 2.x.x while arch and crux both use gcc 3.x.x. red hat and debian both have gcc2.95 which can run beside gcc3.x.x. likely the kernels you used in those distros were compiled with gcc 2.x.x
I am not your friend
Actually, on Debian I custom compiled my own kernel as well from the unstable tree (which is gcc 3.x). And from what I can tell from the cisco install script the module is compiled as well.
