Re: Tux on RHEL 4.1 AS

William, I believe that Tux is included with this distribution, but I
believe I still have to install it. When attempting to run, it gives
me "Tux version: 3/0/0; could not initialize TUX!" I've looked over
the installation.html file included with the distribution and it says
I need to configure and install the kernel with Red Hat Content
Accelerator if it has not already been provided with the RH Content
Accelerator configured. In order to do this, it points me to
http://people.redhat.com/~mingo/TUX-patches to get the latest Content
Acclerator release. Do you know how I can find out if the Content
Acelerator has already been configured in order to stick with the
prebuilt modules?
