I already wasted a lot of time in the past compiling RH kernels and trying
to make ax25 work. 

I know CentOS as here at the company we have several web and database
servers using it, but chances are those guys never tried to load AX25. When
I had to reload our gateway box last time I downloaded Debian, and it was
quite a surprise. AX25 can be loaded as modules, and the installation was so
smooth... And the box is running just fine. I understand there are some DL
guys working at Debian, and they make sure AX25 works ok.

Just my 2c.

I am using centos5 (rhel5) and a kernel version 
The only thing that I can not get to compile is ax25-tools. Following is a
sniplet of the failing area of the compile.

I have everything under ax25 in the kernel source .config checked and
included within the kernel and can not see anything relating to the

Any suggestions ?  OR places that I could  look for tips ?  Then latest docs
