I dont really get this ipvs/LVS to work.
Im running slackware 9.1 with 2.4.24 kernel downloaded from

As far as i understand from howtos (and posted msg's) i shouldnt need to
patch anything in 2.4.24?
Iv compiled the kernel with:
[*] Network packet filtering (replaces ipchains)
Tho i dont see any option resembling to ipvs or anything more to

Downloaded ipvsadm-1.21.tar.gz and built it, running ipvsadm says:
Can't initialize ipvs: Protocol not available
Are you sure that IP Virtual Server is built in the kernel or as module?

So.. what am i missing? :)
