Coda File System

Conflict between Venus and coda.o in RH62?

I am setting up a coda client for the first time under Red Hat 6.2 (yes,
I am a newbie), using the 2.2.14 kernel included in this distribution,
and I am having problems.

When I start Venus, I get this message:

11:20:20 Kernel version ioctl failed (Inappropriate ioctl for device)!

The syslog gives me this message:

Apr 19 11:20:18 codaclient kernel: coda_psdev_write: downcall, no SB!

I am using the 5.3.6 version of the client (RPM binary distribution). Do
I have to build a new kernel?
