Im using debian woody, with some unofficial packages...

pop1:/usr# grep -R " CLONE_NEWNS" *

it is defined on kernel headers, but not on my libc...

pop1:~/kernel/linux# grep -R " CLONE_NEWNS" *
fs/namespace.c: if (!(flags & CLONE_NEWNS))
include/linux/sched.h:#define CLONE_NEWNS       0x00020000      /* New
namespace group? */

What can i do? If i include kernel headers errors are even worse...

Thanks a lot, i will look for it.

So, failover will work well using multibus? i mean if one fibre
comtroller is removed, it will use only one, and when the other
controller is added again multibus would work again using both
controllers? sorry, i cannot make too many tests because the hardware
isnt our, and im not there to unplug the fibre wire.
