Hi everyone ,

Yesterday I updated some opensuse 10.3 clients with the latest kernel patch. It totally broke the novell linux client and novfs module. I tried rebuilding , reinstalling just cant seem to get it to work. Does anyone have any suggestions ? here is the boot.log from one of the clients. Second question , is their any way if I dont get this working I can backrev to 2.6.22.17-0.1 ??

(I didnt see the option for attachments so .. here is the log
