Hello everybody,

I would like to know why the following problem comens into picture, when i
follow the below spwcified steps.

- I have  built  a Igmpv3(Multicast protocol with ssm support) kernel in
Linux-7.1(red hat) , as per the Linux build proceedure, as per the URL-

-The kernel was tested for igmpv3 functionality, delta support is achieved
when test applications are run on the kernel.
- The above make sure the igmpv3 applied patch is successfull. THE patch
supports both delta/full state igmpv3 .
- when tested for full state/advanced igmpv3 mode support by kernel, The
application gives the following error.

     "Error in setting filter :"Package not installed".

- On debugginng the, application  it was found that ,on executing the
----------  ioctl(sd, SIOCSIPMSFILTER, (char *)
fmode)------------->igmp_ioctl()--------->igmp_ioctl_set(struct sock *sk,
void * arg) ; the error had come.

- Other observation -

when i reboot/start the Igmpv3 kernel , there is one kernel log  message
saying ,    "ds: no socket drivers loaded",  on bootup.

- I want to know also whether this full state igmpv3  support is ethernet
vendor specific,means some vendor cards have this support and some may not.
like 3c59x driver may have and 8139too realtek driver .does not have.

could you please elaborate on this.
Basically i want to know how can i solve this problem.
