I tried the mopd-linux stuff that comes with Redhat 7.1 but I do not
get it to run. If I start it, I get the following in syslog:

Sep 15 18:15:08 gandalf mopd[1680]: mopd 2.5.3 started.
Sep 15 18:15:08 gandalf mopd[1680]: Initialized eth0
Sep 15 18:15:08 gandalf mopd[1680]: malloc: Cannot allocate memory

I have no idea, why I get the malloc error. The linux system runs
fine and has no memory problems. Are you aware of a working mopd
for linux (Redhat 7.1, Kernel 2.4.2)?  

Best regards,
