hmm... yes this is because of kernel 2.2.X... I hightly recommand you to
update your LVS code to kernel 2.4.X since it is more robust and improved
than 2.2.X

Anyway, I should have forgotten this 2.2.X part in the autoconf script. To
workaround, follow this step (all done in the keepalived directory):

1. edit Comment the following part :

#KERNEL_VERSION=`uname -r`
#modprobe ip_vs
#if test -f /proc/net/ip_vs; then
#  IPVS_VERSION=`cat /proc/net/ip_vs | head -1 | awk '{ print $5}'`
#  echo
#  echo "!!!WARN!!! Your kernel need to be patched with LVS code
#  echo
#  exit 1

2. rm configure
3. run autoconf
4. run ./configure & compile it....

=> The need to be more generic... I have done his part very
quickly, and because my LVS devel platform is 2.4 I have not seen this
trouble :)

Will patch this in the next release, thanks for feedback.
