I was thinking about recompiling it, but since compiling took quite a long
time on that P166 I thought I would try to get it working.

Where can I see the options from the spec file?

Ahem, what can I say. There is a reason - I didn't know I could, or didn't
think enough to make myself know. I will try that out now, purge the
files, install the rpms and compile the kernel modules.

But I am still confused as to why klog doesn't work ... "fs listcells" even
the correct cells (I even started reading the documentation now) ...

Thanks a lot,
