Hello kernel experts,

Just i tryed to setup a VPN using freeswan-1.97 and vanilla kernel-2.4.18+ac3
patch. Before compile my kernel, I read the documentation and i saw that is
recommended to keep the following options in kernel config file:

Beginning with kernel-2.4.17, the option Kernel/User netlink socket
(CONFIG_NETLINK) is MISSING, and present is ONLY the second option:
Netlink device emulation (CONFIG_NETLINK_DEV)

Can anybody tell me with what option has been replaced this option?

Can ignore this missing feature?

Best Regards,
