modproble: Can't locate module eth0:1

Hi,

I wonder if anyone could help.

I'm setting up wackamole across two servers sharing 3 VIP
addresses and will be using RR DNS for the web site.

Error in /var/log/daemon.log is:
Nov 28 11:55:12 web-fe-01 modprobe: modprobe: Can't locate module eth0:1
Nov 28 11:55:12 web-fe-01 Wackamole[4048]: ioctl error setting IP address
Nov 28 11:55:12 web-fe-01 Wackamole[4048]: Aquire address 172.16.0.225

Nov 28 11:55:12 web-fe-01 Wackamole[4048]: Aquire address 172.16.0.226

Nov 28 11:55:12 web-fe-01 Wackamole[4048]: Aquire address 172.16.0.227

Hardware: Compaq DL360
OS: Debian potato stable (compact, so has Compaq drivers)

> uname -a
Linux web-fe-01 2.2.19-compact #1 Sat Jun 9 13:19:16 EST 2001 i686 unknown

Spread seems fine, I used this config on a couple of RedHat machines
and it worked ok. So I'm guessing it's debian, but as a recent convert
I'm not sure how to solve this.

Any help is much appreciated.

Thanks

Leo

Sounds like that ioctl isn't supported on that device (eth0). Perhaps
you have IP aliasing disabled in your kernel. You must have IP aliasing
enabled as well as "Packet Socket."

It seems unlikely that your netmask is 255.255.0.0. If it is, then your
broadcast address is incorrect. You netmask is most likely
255.255.255.0. Setting your netmask correctly is rather important.
