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,
I think you disabled IPv6 in YaST during installation,
so the IPv6 module is not longer allow to load automaticly.
You can enable it via the YaST network card setup in the Advanced dialog.
