Thank you for your troubles and research. Unfortunately both links have nothing to do with my current problem ;).

see Bug #270774:

The last statement is important and the Debian folks should do that ASAP. I've done the same thing in our company distribution. We have a ipvsadm-2.2, a ipvsadm-2.4 and a ipvsadm-2.6. Whichever kernel you boot, you get the right tool with it.

My problem is:

I've got a Debian testing based Linux system on a sparc64 box. I try to get LVS running on a vanilla 2.4.27 kernel. The kernel module loads and runs absolutely fine.

As stated, I've also downloaded the ipvsadm-1.21 source which should be correct for the latest 2.4.x IPVS version. Compiling it, with the /usr/src/linux includes (which is correct regarding my self-made kernel) gives me a binary which does not work as outlined in my first email.

Any hints as to why this is so? I'll stick my nose into the code now for real ... sigh, my girlfriend will kill me. I suspect some 64bit uncleanliness or something along those lines. For more information:

Maybe the Debian folks have already fixed some of those in their patches, will have a look at those first.

Best regards,

ps: I see that we've got a commercial touch now with the new site :)
