Solution:

You have two options.

When asked if you want to rebuild the MVFS module, answer Yes. – You will then be prompted for the path to the Linux kernel source directory. The default prompt is /lib/modules/)uname -r)/build.

If you are running a standard kernel from Red Hat or SuSE, accept this default prompt. If not, you will need to enter the pathname to the directory in which you built your running kernel.2. Rebuild the MVFS without reinstalling Rational ClearCase.

Example during install:

WARNING: Install was unable to find a prebuilt mvfs module
for this system. You will have to rebuild your mvfs module.

Do you want to rebuild the mvfs module when install is
complete (yes, no, quit, help)[yes]:yes

2. Rebuild the MVFS without reinstalling Rational ClearCase

Run the command: cd /var/adm/rational/clearcase/mvfs/mvfs_src – Clean up the results of previous builds: make clean – Build the MVFS modules: make You will be prompted for the path to the Linux kernel source directory. The default prompt is /lib/modules/)uname -r)/build

Install the newly built MVFS modules into the proper directory under /lib/modules, so that the MVFS modules will be loaded into the kernel when Rational ClearCase starts: make install 86 IBM Rational ClearCase, ClearCase MultiSite, and ClearCase LT: Installation and Upgrade Guide
