I'm trying to use SCTP with SuSE10.2 however when I
try to run my application, the sctp kernel module does
not load by itself. I even tried 'modprobe -a sctp'
and 'insmod sctp' yet, it fails to load. I examined
the dmesg output and figured that the sctp module was
dependent upon the ipv6 module. So I manually loaded
it myself, then loaded the sctp kernel module and
voila, it loaded just fine.
However, is there a better way to do this? I always
thought that it would be loaded by itself but
apparantly that is not the case. Am I missing
something on 'modprobe -a' ? I figured it should load
everything sctp needs but I had to load ipv6 manually.
For now, I am loading everything manually, but is
there a better automated way?
Thanks for your advice/pointers,
