Forum OpenACS Q&A: Re: Oasis: OpenACS &amp; .LRN VM new version
Are you actually running a Linux 2.2.x kernel on a Debian box? That's verging on crazy, as 2.2.x is ancient. Debian 3.0 Stable, now very old, shipped with kernel 2.4.18. I believe it also included a 2.2.x kernel, but I'm not aware of any reason to ever use that.
The current Debian Unstable and Testing have both 2.4.x and 2.6.x kernels.
