    For the ipv6 problem, per this site:
    I personally just commented the line out with a # in front of that line.

    Also, just for the sake that Google brought this discussion up first for the:
    error, here is the fix:

    Easy enough, eh? That fix is per the forum thread that Falko posted above, but it doesn't hurt to add it here either... ??? I hope.

    Also, @Falko, should that be added to the guide? I don't remember seeing it when I followed this guide. BTW, you rock! Thanks so much for all your guides and help. I've been using your guides since... The "Perfect SuSE 9"?...

    linux/capability.h error

    On openSuSE 11.1 with both libcap1 and libcap2 installed this failed as well.

    My solution was:

    After ./configure

    1. Edit Makefile and change DIRS=lib/libcap to DIRS=
    2. Edit Make.rules and remove -Llib/libcap from LIBS= (leave -lcap)
    3. Edit modules/mod_cap.c and change include for compatibility.h to # include <sys/capability.h>

    This uses the kernel header and kernel library rather than the one included in the distribution.
